Safety first! The Universal Kayak Locking System is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to keep your kayak safe and secure from the bad guys. It is a pair of steel cables that work together to wrap around your boat and a fixed object to allow you to lock your boat in place. If you're like us at StoreYourBoard, you have a huge time and monetary investment in your kayak and stolen kayak would be devastating. With so much at risk, there is no excuse not to properly safeguard your boat.
The Universal Kayak Locking System consists of (2) 3/16" coil steel cables - thick enough that most cable cutters will never get through. These cables have been Vinyl coated to protect any scratching on your boat, rack, or car. Each cable has two loops to it: a locking loop and a boat loop. The locking loop is a small loop in the cable that is used to pass the pad lock through to lock up both cables together. The boat loop is a 14" diameter loop that is designed to loop over the nose and tail of your kayak.
This kayak lock system is great for use in a variety of situations. For instance:
Sizing: This lock system comes in three different sizes. The Small Kayak Lock is 9ft lock and is designed for smaller kayaks. The Large Kayak Lock is 12ft long and is better for longer kayaks. The Canoe Lock is 14ft long for canoes.
How it works:
The key to this kayak locking system is that kayaks are tapered in size from the center out to the bow (nose) and stern (tail). Meaning, the width of a kayak in the center is always greater than the width of the kayak at the bow and stern. This allows the boat loops (discussed above) to slip over the bow and stern of your kayak, but not all the way over the center. Therefore, you can slip the boat loop of each cable over the bow and stern, then loop the long cable around a fixed object (like a rack, tree, car roof rack) and lock the two cables together on their locking loops. As long as there isn't enough "slack" in the cable, the boat loops can't come off your boat and your boat will be safely locked down! See the image below for an illustration.
Note - Does not include pad lock.
Great design concept and works well
An elegant solution for locking our 15.5' kayaks to our rack down by the water. Couldn't be easier to use. Very happy we purchased two of these.
A beefy cable that will not mar the finish on my kayak while securing it to my rack. Thanks.
Great service. Just what I wanted for product
Exactly as advertised.
It's easy to use. Must purchase a good lock. Hoping it's a good deterrent from theft.
Works very well. I would like to see an optional kit that would allow you to trim the cable to a specific length.
Easy to use and secures your kayak from theft.
