I thought the price was very reasonable considering the convenience this baby adds. It's pretty darn sturdy too, for plastic. If you kayak very much, you have to get one of these Yak Clips. They are too cool for school!
Since it doesn't use rivets or glue... you can snap it on or off of a kayak instantly and carry it home in your pocket. A very cheap, simple and handy item for any kayaker.
Also, I spoke to the vendor on an issue with another product. These folks provide excellent, personal and effective customer service!
One holder would suffice for holding a paddle out of the way while you are in it, but two are needed to hold securely while you are getting in or out of the cockpit.
I like the fact that they can be moved around the lip to get it out of the way of paddling, but feel more secure if it is removed entirely.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you cannot use these clips if you use a spray skirt. You have to choose one or the other.
Having said all that, it's still a good accessory to have while kayaking. It does what it claims. Its easy to install. It only takes an instant to attach the paddle, so that both hands can be freed up to do something else.
It's ingenious in its simplicity: Simply spread the two ends of the circular YakClip around the edge of they kayak cockpit (i.e., the oval-shaped opening in which you sit) and it forms a clamp around the cockpit lip. Once in place, you can push your paddle--without much effort--into the slightly protruding C - shaped holder. (It also has extra (smaller) clamps for things like fishing poles.)
There's enough pressure to keep the paddle in place (unless you knock it off accidentally with a direct hit from your elbow or something). For this reason, and especially because you'll hurt your arm if you brush against the product while paddling, I recommend setting the YakClip either forward or in back of where your arms move while paddling. (Unfortunately, I found out the hard way that ou don't want to scrape your arm against the top! I suppose the device could be covered in rubber or something, but that would add to the cost, and the solution is very simple.)
Other products often involve a rope tied around the paddle and then to the kayak. A common complaint is that despite the hook and loop attachment (also known as "Velcro"), the rope eventually moves and gets in the way of paddling. If you're an inventor type, you might want to find a way to attach something buoyant around your paddle.
You might need to park your paddle while pausing to snap a picture, getting water, a snack, or anything else from a dry sack or other container, when you want to just lay back and enjoy a calm lake, or--ack!--in the event you need to pump water and want to make sure your paddle is secure.Read more ›

Exactly what I needed for my kayak. It clipped onto the side perfectly. I didn't want to drill holes into my kayak unless I had to. It does slide from time to time. Read morePublished 1 month ago by StevenG

For such a little accessory I love this clip. It's great so you don't lose your paddle while fishing or eating a nice lunch out on the water. It was a clever little design. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Michelle Kelly
