    Kit came with everything needed for self installation. Detailed instructions meant that even a first time installer like me could complete the installation easily without problems.

    Nice product and easy to install. Wilderness Systems has already prerigged its kayaks for future installation. Only flaw seems to be the bracket used to mount the rudder to the unit. It just seems a little under engineered (flimsy) to me. It remains to be seen, over a period of extended use, whether my concerns are justified or not. ACK pricing and customer service was excellent as ususal. The product was received on time and as expected. Would give five stars but for my, as yet unfounded, concern about the durability of the mounting bracket.

    The rudder arrived in a timely manner and intact with all parts included. The only complaint I have is that since the instructions included several different models of kayaks and there were no photos included to assist in installation, I resorted to viewing a video on You Tube to make it clearer. I would suggest to the manufacturer to include photos and make it clearer which model they are speaking of.

    As the other reviews have stated, instructions have some overkill which can become confusing but fairly simple kit to install. Was worth the purchase to help tracking while drifting and paddling into a hard wind.
