The Kayak Side Mount Carry Handles are installed at the balance point at either side of the cockpit and are reinforced with plastic buckles on each end. Side-mounted handles make it easier to lift your kayak.
Perfect replaceemnt for my Ocean Kayak at a great price.
Rivets for mounting can be very hard to find, depending on where you live, be sure to order FLAT HEAD rivets for mounting, as countersunk will not be a satisfactory installation.
perfect replacement for my Ocean Kayak Trident. Drilled out the center of the old rivets, removed the old handles, the new ones lined up perfectly with the previous rivet holes, dropped 8 new rivets in, gave them a few squeezes, and viola! operational side handles.
Well designed and constructed. I opted to do the install using stainless bolts, washers and nut instead of the suggested rivets. I used a tapered head on the bolt to reduce the exposed profile, but that resulted in it pulling through the handle tab during use. I resolved the issue with a pan-head design bolt and a washer top-side.
