Building a Better Mouse…er…Cam Strap?


- Advertisment -

River runners might pride themselves on the simplicity and bombproofness of the good ol’ cam strap, but now even they’ve been improved a notch with, wait for it…magnets. Witness the new Click-Strap, the first self-latching tie down strap for kayaks, canoes and SUPs, freshly launched on Kickstarter…

Out of Bellingham, Wash., and designed by longtime industry vet Tom Swetish, the Click-Strap is “the first ever self-latching tie down strap for kayaks, canoes and SUPs.” Its high-power magnets and easy to use latching system enable the the patent-pending Click-Strap to mak securing your kayak, canoe or paddleboard to your vehicle easier than ever.

To use, simply slide the Click-Strap over your boat and the strap’s powerful magnets take it from there. Once the magnets have located the anchor they’ll snap into place. A quick pull on the webbing transfers the load and positions the boat on the rack through a strong and secure stainless steel latching system. Once the magnet catches on both sides you tighten as you would any other now-ancient cam strap.

When you’re ready to remove your boat, simply loosen the web strap and pull the release rope. The system stores in a handy carry bag which doubles as a warning flag for the stern of your boat.

Click-Strap also introduces the complementary Contour Cradle system. Designed for carrying composite boats and SUPs, the cradle can be custom shaped to the exact profile of a hull. This means even support distributed over a large area which protects your fragile investment. Additionally, the full support of the cradles provide unmatched control and security of your boat – particularly in cross wind situations.
