A simple strap that clips to the deck of a sea kayak allowing a contact tow to be given to another kayak. The quick release buckle allows easy adjustment and fast release if necessary. It comes colour coded for port and starboard with high quality, clean nose full strength karabiners.

It's primary use is for very short contact tows. When set up correctly the boat being towed should end up just behind the hip of the rescuer.

It can also be used to connect kayaks together creating a raft and reducing the chances of a capsize.

As with all rescue equipment practise by the end user is vital in controlled, non-serious situations to understand the capabilities and any associated limitations.

Looking after the karabiners

Salt crystals will form and damage the springs inside the karabiners. Cleaning in fresh water after every use and lubricating with silicone spray is highly recommended.
