The Hobie Replacement Seat Back Strap with Hook is the OEM replacement for lost or damaged seat straps. The Hobie Replacement Seat Back Strap with Hook comes with the plastic hook attached.
Worked great! ACK was very responsive via email. Great service will always use for my Hobie parts.
Reading another review, these are replacement seat straps. They do not need to be sewn. They fit into a plastic buckle that stays attached to the seat. I have found the plastic hook on the end of the strap breaks from fatigue or exposure to sun light. I can't say it is a bad design by Hobie since my Kayak gets regular use and is of 2009 vintage. I am also a big guy at 260 pounds. I have replaced both seat straps now and have two straps as spare. I carry one in the pocket on the back of the seat. as a precaution.
