Its works great,took a while to figure out where to mount it on my outback. I have the seat with the tackle boxes sticking out the back. I broke the mount off the first time I used it. I had it to close to my back and the rubber screw mounts that come with the top busted out. went and got some serious anchor screws and remounted it. Lasted all weekend. I have since moved it back 5 inches and its worked out perfect.
Thank you for the opportunity to review this product. The bracket simply does not work on my Hobie Pro-Angler. It is too narrow to reach any solid surface on the PA. It is also poorly engineered with a left-right linear design to handle major moment arm stress in the front-rear direction.
Excellent product. We fish Galveston Bay for hours at a time in kayaks, and this shade provides excellent coverage. It does not get in the way of casting, and easily folds in if the wind comes up.
Easy install on most any Kayak.
