The ACK Anchor Trolley Kit allows your anchor to be relocated from bow to stern or anywhere in between. This system is great for paddlers who need to adjust the position of their anchor. This fully rigged kit comes with installation instructions and the hardware needed to install this it on just about any kayak.
Purchased ACK Anchor Trolley Kits for both of my Yaks, works great, fast shipping. Well done
Just installed this anchor trolley on my OK Trident 13. I am not impressed to say the least. The directions for install are pretty confusing and I am already regretting having drilled the holes necessary for this. First problem, the directions tell you to install the aft pulley 1' from the stern. Only after doing so, did I realize that the Ring will be limited by from reaching the bow or the stern by 2-3' which are the ideal places that the ring should really be when anchoring. This is partially due to the directions having you install the pulley 1' from bow and stern (which I did and soon regretted) but also because the bungee and clip sections block the ring from going another 1-2'. This is my main gripe with this kit - because I cannot get the ring to go further fore and aft which I anticipate being a problem when anchoring in stronger currents. Second, the directions are very poor and, as a result, the control knob is now pretty much useless as the line doesnt rest on it. This really should have been explained better in the directions as should the rest of the directions been more clear. Third, the drilling to install the well nuts was no pretty and required an unusual size drill bit which I did not have. I therefore resorted to trying to open up the hole further with my 1/4" drill bit which does not make me feel confident the well nuts will remain in place. Perhaps ACK should do a video to clearly show installation of this kit? I am considering uninstalling this kit, 'plastic welding' the holes, and installing another one that I can have more freedom on distributing the anchor ring fore or aft.
Exactly what I need for my kayak....
Trolley anchor kit is awesome. Don't know how I got by without it. My only regret is not buying one for the other side of my yak. One to hold the anchor and one to hold a brush gripper. I do a lot of creek, cove fishing mainly around semi submerged brush piles. This would allow me to not be blown around as much by the wind. Great product.
