Rated 4 out of 5 by Madsurveyor The real answer
Installs in a few minutes. Waterproof silicone is a good idea. Actually a good idea whenever you drill into your yak for anything. ONE THING. All rods are not created equal. Different handles, lengths of handles, etc. Any piece of PVC pipe that is 1 5/8 inch diameter on the OUTSIDE will slide right in to this tube. I suggest you do like I did and cut a 1 foot piece and slide it in when you're going to fish. Then anything fits. I have two installed and have no complaints. PVC in both. The cool thing?? Slip it out when your done. Quality is great on this product. Installation is a piece of cake. I just like the added comfort of multiple fit by adding the PVC and keeping the real off of the boat.
They might get mad at me saying this because they sell the tubes, but PVC is real cheap. You could make many rod inserts for a fraction of the price.
INCH AND FIVE EIGHTHS outside diameter.
Happy fishing.... I'm already on the lake!

If you need recessed holders, best value. I bought one extra just in case i end up with some extra deck space it's going on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hammerdownnc Easy to install
This product was easy to install took all of 5 minutes and I use my kayak on a daily basis to go fishing. It keeps me from having to carry my fishing rod inside my boat and not in the way while I paddle.

Was missing a screw (had to find one in my garage...not fun). The seal around the top should be made of something more pliable to mold around the kayak (you can't always find a flat spot to put it into). Once you silicone seal it it works fine.
