Same problem as protecting a bicycle

It's probably easy to cut through some cables, but at least they deter an opportunistic thief. I use a lassoo cable on my roof rack but I'm sure someone could cut through it if they wanted to. Or they could remove the whole roof rack with the kayak attached.
I feel comfortable leaving a kayak cabled to the car roof in a parking lot during the day but I wouldn't rely on a cable to protect an expensive kayak cabled to a tree outdoors. Depends on the value of the kayak. I think you could install two steel security loops on the deck for a cable.
