How do you lock paddles
Posted by: dvleemin on Feb-05-14 10:15 AM (EST) Category: Kayaks
I was wondering how people lock their paddles so they don't get stolen. We just changed our vehicle to a Jeep, and so I'm worried about leaving paddles in there.

I don't, but do try to keep them out of sight.
If it is a two piece paddle...|

Why not put it in one of the compartments - unless it is a SOT ?
Out of sight |

Gear is best out of sight - hidden - covered -

Use your imagination. Take it apart and tuck it up beaneath the soft top. Or on the floor with some fast food bags over it.
Check the Jeep aftermarket catalogs|

All that stuff always makes me miss mine.

It's not only all the "stuff" made for it--it's also the short wheelbase and greenhouse-like ability to see outside that make it such a fun vehicle to drive.
Get a Dobey, or a Shepard.|

I'm partial to Doberman pinschers.
Are paddles the only concern?|

Adding locks to toppers and another idea|

Although most have locks built into the rear window handles, I've seen replacements or backups that people custom-made. They all involve drilling into the topper or even the tailgate. I wonder if anybody has made one that locked into a steel goalpost hitch post? Hitch receiver locks are easy to buy from trailer- and truck-accessory stores.
