I'm writing in response to the lady who was having difficulty using our klip-n-go kayak strap (review posted 6/7/11). We have noticed that for the smaller paddlers and heavier boats, it is easier for them to carry their kayak in front of them instead of at their side. This prevents the strap from digging into their shoulder by extending the cushioned pad more across the back, and from rubbing on their hip. It makes walking slightly less natural, but still prevents the bottom of the kayak from banging against their legs.
As far as the rubber pad goes, we did have a problem with our glue not being placed heavily enough on the edge of the rounded end of the clip, which is curved out at the end to allow for easier removal. Because we did not want to make the pads too thin, their stiffness can sometimes cause them to pull away from the tapered end. A little super glue on the rounded edge will take care of this, and the rest of the pad has no difficulty staying secure.
