To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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 look like the exact handles that came with my kayak. The problem is that you have to drill your own holes and the strap actually runs through the entire strap. The holes should be done by the manufacturer because drilling the holes (without burning the edges) causes a weak spot and that's why these handles fail. Also while drilling the bit gets caught on the strap and causes an unsafe situation because the product gets caught and spun around. I cut my hand because of this. I would probably put these on a clamp to hold them down while drilling next time.
