Bought this product for securing my new kayak for both outside
storage, and on vehicle roof.
It takes a bit of trial and error to get the length adjusted correctly,
but after a couple of uses, no longer an issue. The product is of high
quality, and should last. I haven't had it long enough to find out if
there may be a problem with corrosion to the lock after exposure to
the weather over time. I am spraying the mechanism with WD40
every few weeks.
I purchased this to lock my 15' touring kayak to my car roof racks. It
works exactly as it should. Additionally, when we also have our 2nd
kayak, a sit-on-top, on the roof, the Lasso is long enough to lock up
both kayaks to the roof rack.
I purchased two of these cables to lock our wilderness pungo 120
kayaks while we were travelling from Western NY to Miami, FL.
These cables were easy to slip onto the end of the kayaks and
thread around the thule racks and the roof rack and lock securely
in place. My first order of these cables was lost (we believe the
package was stolen from our front porch on the same day our
neighbor also had a package stolen from her porch. ACK's customer
service worked with me and reissued the order promptly and I
received it two days later. I highly recommend ACK and will
definitely be ordering more accessories for our kayaks through
them. Great company, great service, great products!
ACK's service, ship time and price are fantastic. I do wish I had
called, because I didn't think to order the longer cable for my 13.5'
kayak, which I'm sure would have been part of a conversation.
Fortunately, I managed to figure out a system of wrapping the
cable around the rack bars, but it's not as clean as attaching the
proper sized cable to my 12'. Great product once you figure out
your system, as the install instructions are not clear.
I got the Touring Kong to lock my 10' kayak to my Yakima roof rack.
So far so good! Loops are the right size for my boat, and I only have
to go around the connector bars once to get it to lock. It looks hefty
enough not to mess with. I posted a photo, but not sure where that
So far so good... Kayak has not been stolen! Perfect size as we have 2!
The cables are great. They are perfect for locking my kayaks to the
top of my outback. You never know when you want to kayak a couple
of days in a row.
I bought the Kong Lasso Kayak
cable several months ago to
secure both of my Predator 13
kayaks to a fencepost in my
yard. The cable / locking
mechanism is good quality and
has held up well to the outdoor
elements so far. The two piece
assembly allows many
configurations to be used for
security. I am very happy with
the quality of the cable and
would buy the same cable
again if I needed another one.
I haven't used theses, but I
have placed on my boats and
they fit well, they will give me
peace of mind on long trips,
and also at the campgrounds
for multiple day trips, they
seem to be well made, and I
love having a key and a combo
lock to open it.
Exactly what I was looking for.
Product is just what I expected -
maybe even a bit heavier quality
which is great!
Works great and easy to use. Not
impenetrable but as my dad
always used to say, it'll keep
the honest crooks out!
