The Hobie Paddle T Handle allows you to convert your Hobie kayak paddle to a canoe style paddle. The Hobie Paddle T Handle is easy to store on many models of Hobie Mirage kayaks where paddle use is unnecessary while using the Mirage Drive. Plugs into the female half of the kayak paddle.
After mounting Hobie sidekicks on my Perception sail kayaks I decided That I needed to protect the center mount tubes from damage during transport and storage. I bought 4 T handles. They work just fine and they also make a great handle for moving the kayaks around. I also keep one of the handles in the cockpit while sailing so I can convert my double paddle to a single for tight places.
I bought the handle because I thought I had lost mine, but ended up finding it. I was able to return it with no problem. It is the exact handle that comes standard with the Hobie PA 12.
