If your using an existing mounting hardware from your kayak this product is great. Unfortunately the hardware supplied with these handles do not come with nuts only the bolts and washers. So if your planning on mounting/drilling to a new location on your kayak you will have to by your own nuts and a bigger support washer for the inside of your kayak.
These are great handles and really help me carry my kayak by myself. I wound up using rivets because I have a sit on top kayak.
The thing I didn’t like is there were no pre drilled holes in the handles. I was able to drill my own, but it wasn’t the easiest to do since you have to drill through the plastic and fabric part of the handle. Be careful if you’re drilling your own.
Likes.. they add points at which I can lift and handle my kayak. The boat is much easier to handle for storage and moving around at home and at the Lake. I used pop rivets designed for Kayak application.
The straps did not fit exactly, but were easy to install, and are of high quality. I believe they will last a long time, since the kayak is old, and the other straps rotted with age. The handles are comfortable and make transporting the kayak easier for two people.
Very pleased with these Kayak Handles. They replaced the existing handles on the end of the kayak. They were failing due to sun exposure. The kayak handles attached with two machine screws for each handle and pierce nuts set into the hull. I did have to drill out the plastic end pieces on the new handles to accept the larger diameter machine screws.
Worked very well to replace damaged handle on 10 year old Ocean Kayak. Hole spacing on mounting flanges matched the ones on the boat (approx 9/16” apart.). Appearance was very close to original if not identical.
basically a nearly perfect match to the handles that came with kayak. I bought these to add side handles to assist with loading. Installation was a breeze - drilled pilot holes, put a dab of RTV silicone, then screwed the included screws. So far it's working perfect
