How to Use the Paddle Locking Device

The paddle locking system is designed to hold the paddle firmly between pads of neoprene rubber in the recesses for the paddles. The first image shows the device open, ready to receive the two halves of a kayak or paddleboard paddle (or two canoe paddles).

The next image shows the device closed, with both paddle halves in place.


After locking the paddle in like this, simply load the boat on top, and then string the locking cable as needed to lock the boat. In some instances, there will be a steel ring for use in locking the boat; see photo. For some boats, the locking cable is routed under a seat and then back to the hasp.

Once the cable is in place, slip its looped end through the padlock and then hook the padlock on to the hasp, as shown.
