Product Description

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:

  • Lock your boat to a tree or pier support post
  • Lock your boat to an outdoor rack you have
  • Lock your boat to a roof rack on a vehicle


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.

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.

Q:
Will the cable fit through a 3/4" hole? My kayak has drain holes that size, and I want to know if I can pass this cable through the hole, to secure my kayak?
A:
This kayak locking system has cables that are 3/16th inch thick -- the cables themselves would fit in a 3/4th inch hole, however, they have loops at each end of the cables, that are part of the locking system, and it might not be easy or possible to compress the cable's loops through your kayak's drain holes.

However, this locking system as is will work to secure your kayak to something stationary (like a tree, something on a dock, etc.) without the need to run it through the drain hole. To use this system, the looped ends of the each cable are placed around the bow & stern ends of your kayak, then the longer cable is looped around the stationary item you are securing it to, and the cables are padlocked together.
Q:
We have two Carolina Expedition kayaks (14'7" long). We'd like to order your locking system but don't know what size we should get.
A:
This large size of the universal locking system would be the one for your expedition kayak, as it secures kayaks that are 13' to 19' long to a stationary object.
Q:
Based on your answer re: the expedition, then I should order the smaller size for 12'6" yak?
A:
Yes, for a 12'6" kayak, you could use the smaller version of this kayak locking system (small seen here)as it will work for kayaks up to 14' long.
Q:
My kayak is 10 feet long. Which size do you suggest?
A:
For a 10 foot kayak, you would want thesmall kayak lock, as it works for kayaks that are between 9' to 14' long. The large would be recommended for kayaks that are between 13' to 19' long.
Q:
How do the lock work, when securing the kayak on a dock that has dock posts?
A:
For these Kayak Locks, the system includes two cables, that each have a small loop at one end and a larger hoop at the other end. One cable is longer than the other - but you will be using both to secure the boat to your dock posts as follows:

  1. Place one of the cable's large loops over your kayak's bow;
  2. Then place the 2nd cable's large loop over your stern;
  3. Use the longer cable to wrap around your dock posts or around another stationary item;
  4. Once you have done so, take that cable's small-loop end, and meet it up with the small loop end of the 2nd cable
  5. Attach a pad lock to the two small loops, securing them together.
Your boat is now secured to a stationary object.
