  The way I secure mine to the roof rack
  Posted by: jackl on Jun-11-13 6:15 PM (EST)

when I am at a motel over night would work for you.
Go to Wally world and pick up a dog cable run, (they come in several lengths). It is a cable with a plastic coating. One end has a connector which if you cut off will leave you with a round metal ring, and the other end has a secure loop.
Also pick up a pad lock.
Depending on what you have on your kayak. If you have a rudder feed it through one of the fittings. If you have carry handles or grab handles that are secured to the boat with a metal loop, feed it through one of them.
As a last resort, feed it around the seat, and then loop it around a tree or other immovable object and secure the two ends with the pad lock.
It will keep the everyday crook from taking it, but I am sure a pro could cut it in a heart beat.
