Secure-It

#1 Post by Sway9 » Tue Apr 12, 2016 12:13 am

Has anyone ever used one of these? Thinking of getting one to store my kayak on the car at work overnight so I can get out quicker in the morning. Also come in handy for camping trips when I need to park away from the site

Lock racks are a must when I get my offshore gear together. Just thinking for my smaller kayak as a go between. But definitely looking into lock racks. Seen them about 6 months ago, brilliant idea. Now just need a key for the centre hatch of the kayak and I'm good to go :lol:

When I was paddling plastic, just used to use a bike lock.

If I was going somewhere with the fibreglass kayak where I might be leaving it unattended on the car, would look at something like these:

Might use them for plastic and lock racks for glass. I like the idea of lock racks being solid opposed to a strap. Ia there anything else like this on the market?

I find the Kanulocks to be effective. I also lock them across the Hobie cradles once I have removed the PA12.
