Add or replace paddle holders with the YakGear Paddle Keeper Kit. While there are many different ways to mount and store paddles on kayaks and canoes, bungee paddle keepers are by far the most versatile. ΒΌ inch bungee is mounted with terminal ends and a J-hook to form a pressure based bungee clamp for paddles, fishing poles, and anchor sticks. This kit comes with two paddle keepers, so the versatility and practicality of the product will not be limited to one side of the kayak or canoe. As always, this complete kit comes with all stainless steel installation hardware, installation instructions, and rigging tips from YakGear. Waterproof silicone recommended, but not included. WARNING

  • Paddle keepers can be used to store an assortment of items
  • Made of 1/4″ nylon bungee, and attaches to your vessel using terminal ends and sleeves
  • Each kit comes with two paddle keepers
  • Installation instructions and hardware included

  1. The end result is a perfect holder for our paddles. So nice to have some place to secure them when climbing in and out of the kayak, or taking a break on the water. They do require some dexterity to assemble and install. The bungee appears to be attached to the plastic piece that is screwed on the vessel. It isn’t and can be somewhat frustrating to insert if the bungee becomes even slightly frayed. Maybe it’s because we’re seniors and not as adept as were once were!

  2. Great product, easy to install.

    My wife and I purchased two sets of the Paddle Keeper Kits and installed them on both sides of our two Wilderness Pungo 120 kayaks. The Paddle Keepers work great for attaching the paddles to either sides of the kayak when loading, unloading and resting. Having the Paddle Keeper installed on both sides of our kayaks also allows us to take a floating break by tethering our two kayaks together, using the bungees to cross connect the kayaks (either facing each other or facing the same direction) and stowing the paddles on the free side of the kayaks.
    FYI, we only tether our kayaks together in very calm water and we use both bungee cords from each kayak to cross connect to each others kayak in order to reduce cord fatigue on just one Paddle Keeper cord. This option of kayak tethering may not work on all kayaks.

    Would recommend to a friend.

  3. Great kit. Has everything included.

  4. My kayak was made for this type of paddle holder. It was easy to install and has a low profile on the top deck, so it doesn’t interfere with using the paddle.

    Bought two used kayaks recently that needed some bungee repairs including bungee paddle keepers. The bungee had dried out and needed replacements. YakGear has it all so picked up some of these. YakGear always has kits at affordable prices with everything I need. When it comes to kayak hardware “YakGear” is the name I use. I actually operate the rapidly growing KayakDIY youtube channel and work on kayaks a lot. YakGear is a company I use for nearly all my kayak hardware. I even list their products in my youtube store as an affiliate now. The YakGear team are kayak anglers and use their gear…that is why they are one of the best!

    Needed a new shock cord for my older Hobie kayak. Old one gave out. I received the replacement kit within days of purchase. Tool all of 10 minutes to take off the old one, cut the new cord to fit and replac the plastic fasteners and screw the new cord in place. Received two new cords and hardware in the package, It will be needed soon.

    Great kit! I bought 2 sets and mounted them to hold a small hand saw and pruners that I use to help clear branches on the creeks I paddle, so it shows the versatility of the kit beyond holding paddles.
