Add or replace pad eyes on any kayak or canoe with the YakGear Pad Eye Kit.  Also known as “deck loops”, pad eyes provide 1-1/2 inch across and 3/8 inch high attachment points for seats, leashes and other things you take on your paddle trip.  Compatible with all kayaks and canoes, this nylon pad eye kit is the best way to lock down all of the other YakGear accessories to the boat.  While standard order quantities are between 10 and 20 pieces, our kit consists of 5 pieces.  Please select the quantity accordingly.  If the boat has absolutely no inside access, a Tri-Grip Rivet Kit will be needed for installation.  As always, this complete kit comes with all stainless steel installation hardware for boats with partial inside access, installation instructions, and rigging tips from YakGear.  Waterproof silicone recommended, but not included.

  1. I purchased this kit so I could ad some pad eyes to my kayak. Some areas I was not able to use the screws so I got introduced to rivets. Never used a rivet gun, but went out and bought one and with the instructions provided I was able to install my pad eyes successfully. Happy with the quality of the pad eyes and hardware.

  2. Nice kit. I used some of this when I added my anchor trolley, also from Yak Gear. It’s all good and sturdy so I got some more to have on hand.

  3. The pad eye kit is great, I added pad eyes on the hard front deck on my Jackson Kilroy. The quality was great! So nice to get instructions that are accurate, When they tell you to use a 3/16" drill bit, do it , it works. Now I have a great place to fasten gear leashes.

  4. These were great and easy to install. I now have these in all the places that were needed. I’ve attached by net, pliers, paddle leash and a few more items. Highly recommended.

  5. All three kits were awesome. Great hardware. Shipped on time. Great gear.

  6. Great for adding additional leashes. I’ve used them to hold onto my net and anchor bag. Many uses if you fish.

  7. Order these to install a seat on my son’s yak. They arrived faster than the seat did. (Which was order from another site). Came with all the parts. Good quality.

  8. Excellent pad eyes. Use them for a number of things from net, pliers, trolley anchor rope, just about anything you can think of. Fast shipping. Great customer service.

    Thank you for the quick and efficient service I received for my recent order. I would rate your service a 5 out of 5. When my husband saw I had a new seat, he decided to get back into yaking too, so I will be ordering again soon. Thanks

    Great product! This gave me the peace’s I needed to complete my project. It’s to bad theses pieces were not included with the anchor pulley system I purchased through someone else. But, that’s another deal. I am thankful this is available, and that it’s a good product.

    I used YakGear for the first time this year. I will only use them going forward. Whatever modification you can think of for your Kayak you can get here. I have been happy with everything I’ve purchased so far.
