The Hobie Mirage Drive Leash Kit is great way to avoid losing your Mirage Drive.
Great price for peace of mind. Loop connection could be larger. Do not take the spring fitting off - you will not get it back on.
Very well made leash and good attachment kit for kayaks that don't already have an attachment point. I was using cord to leash my drives to my Hobbie Revolution and Adventure Kayaks but it kept getting caught on everything. The new leashes stay out of the way and unsnap quickly. Note: Don't leave your Mirage drives on the kayaks when unattended. They are easily stollen. Even if you stow them in the hull it is better than leaving them out.
Cheap insurance that Hobie should include with their Mirage drives. I connect the snap to the front hatch bungee on my Outback to avoid drilling more holes.
