Be Seen with the 4 ft Kayak Safety Flag. When out on your kayak, you are very low to the water. Add to that any wave or swell action and you are often hidden from other boaters view. The 4 ft. tall safety flag will help other boaters see you. Very important in areas with mixed boating traffic! If you have internal access to your boat through a hatch, you do not need any additional mounting accessories. If you do not have access to the interior of your boat, you will need the deluxe mount bracket, sold separately.
This does the job - ie power boaters can see the kayak and I love it and I can remove it easily before racking my boat. HOWEVER, it did not come with ANY instructions for installation. I did not want to make a mistake and had to make several phone calls before I was able to get verbal instructions. I also was able to find a competitive product online which had instructions. Once given the instructions, it was simple to install. Therefore, in order to mount it correctly, it would be nice if instructions were included. I thought it was weird that instructions were omitted.
This is a quality product but I feel it would be better suited to a dune buggy rather than a kayak. It appears very durable but is very heavy and I fear mounting it to the surface of my kayak will distort the area or break the plastic hull if any shock were applied to the pole or flag. I will most likely search for another pole and use the flag.
Great addition to any kayak if you are on the lake with power boats. This flag and pole really stand out.
Great product for the price. Just what you need for kayak fishing in waters shared by bigger boats.
