The Nylon Pad Eye is an excellent way to create attachment points for seats, tie down points for accessory straps, guides for rudder lines, and many other uses. Nylon Pad Eyes are produced with high quality nylon to ensure they can take the abuse and strain that today's kayakers can dish out. Able to be installed practically anywhere on your kayak with the use of either stainless bolts and nuts, or even with rivets, you can truly customize your boat to how you see fit. Mounting hardware for the Nylon Pad Eye is sold separately.
These nylon pad eyes were a direct replacement for the eyes I had broken on my Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120. Be sure to order the black anodized pop rivets with sealant when replaceing these.
They are very useful, but there must be something going on here because I go through them pretty quickly. They last only a few trips before cracking. Probably the exposure to salt water, where I use them regularly.
Great pad eyes. Sized and dimensions almost identical to every other pad eye. It's hard finding a retailer willing to sell individually.
If you need or want an easy and very cost effective way to add tie down points these pad eyes are the way to go.
