Way to flimsy. Thought they
would have been a bit stronger.
I have yet to use the clips for fishing
rods, but I think they will do the job.
They were easy to install wherever I
wanted. Hopefully they will be durable;
ask me later.
Snug fit, Secure, fairly easy to
secure to hull although I did have
to go out and purchase a rivit Gun
to connect the rivits provided
Easy to use and holds paddle
securely in place
Good product. It bit soft,
which allows paddle to be
knocked out of clips. Upside of
that is they wont break off when
Well, they do what they are
supposed to do, but for how
$17 a set, just as other
reviewers have mentioned, they
cheap plastic. Be careful
ratcheting down the rivets or
they will pull
thru and game over. I dont
expect much long time use from
since the plastic clips are
hollow. I bought two sets so
first ones break, I have
I purchased to hold my fishing rod and the rod clips do the job well. I also like the fact they are made of a flexible rubber so I feel the will not break off. Very easy to mount.
I purchased these so as to keep the paddle off
my lap while fishing. They work pretty good but
I think the product could be better. The rubber
is very flexible which can be a good thing or
weak thing. Good in the way they don't break
like a rigid material would but weak because it
seems like they are barely able to hold the
paddle up. It seems to me the company could
have put a little more rubber into the clips
and not have them hollow.
Another thing, be careful when installing
these, a stainless steel rivet can pull the
washer right through the soft rubber. I
actually did that and had to fashion washers of
my own to hold them on.
All in all, they get the job done but they
could have been better.
I've already reviewed these on ACK website. You
will need a rivet gun available for 20-40 dollars
at your local Home Depot or Hardware store (maybe
here at ACK I have not checked). I just bought
another pair because I am using the second for
holding my spear gun. These are not perfect but
they work and they are durable. As always ordering
from ACK was a pleasure. Great prices, fast
expedition of my order and it arrived in days with
all items correct.
A little flimsy but work well if not space too far apart. Haven't tried the rod holder tabs but look like they should work.
Holds the paddle well. Some reviews say "flimsy" - I
feel they hold the paddle well enough and will flex
and not break when they "do" get hit on the side of
These paddle keepers are quite flimsy. I'm guessing they make them this way so they never break off/crack if they are banged into. While they will hold your paddle it is not something you would call secure. This is easily fixed by getting some elastic rope (thin) and some kayak loops. I did this for both of my paddle keepers and spear gun holders. If there was a way to post a picture of my install I would. If you need some help I'll gladly e-mail you pictures.
