Bought this to compliment the YakAttack Track. Put 2 tracks on my Hobie Revo which has limited deck space. It gave me much more flexibility for placement of my Ram rod holders and Fish finder. Since I have Ram rod holders on the track I wanted the backing plate to make it as strong and secure as possible. They matched the track perfect and they fit under the deck in the narrowest of spots.
This is my second time to install a set of gear tracs with backing plate. One was on a Jackson Kayak Cruise 12 and this one on a Cruise 10. The first install went smooth with no issues. This last install, a couple of the screws cross threaded. Not sure if it was my fault or if something was a little off on the backing plate. It still seems to be holding solid and the backing plate is the only option I know to use when you can not reach the screws because of lack of hull access.
