Watertrail Deck Mounted Paddle Holder

This is a fantastic bit of kit everything you need to fit the kit is supplied in the bag 2 well nuts 2 bolts and the paddle holder it can be mounted anywhere on the kayak and will keep the paddle safe and secure while it is not needed it took about 5 mins to fit

The first photo shows the complete kit as it comes out of the bag

Holes drilled just the right size for the well nut to be fitted this needs to be a tight fit
To get maximum grip when it is tightened with the bolt

Image description

Both well nuts fitted nicely in place though it is not needed I chose to add a smear of silicone around the well nut before pushing them in to the holes

Image description

The keeper then offered up to the well nuts and both bolts firmly tightened

Image description

See how secure and neatly the paddle shaft is held in place neatly out of the way while fishing

As you can see here in the overall picture I chose to fit the paddle keeper to the side of the kayak but it could be fitted anywhere on the kayak that you chose
The fitted keeper holds the paddle very securely this is a simple piece of kit but it is very well made and designed it is very tough moulding and should last years .The retail of the paddle mount is £6.95 and its great value for that I think it’s just the right answer to what to do with the paddle while fishing.
