Bought these handles to replace the worn out carry handles on my Native kayak. Took the originals off and installed the new ones. The Yak-Gear handles are exactly the same as the originals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve Wood Yak-Gear Kayak Handle Kit
I purchased one set of these Handles as replacements for the handles on my daughter's Dagger Piedra white water kayak. It took about five minutes to replace the existing handles on her boat with these, using the screws allready on the boat. I was very happy with the handles and ease of instilation so the next day I returned to Dick's and purchased a pair for my Dagger RPM Max and installed them. The replacement went very smoothly and was no problem at all. The handles are made of black tubuler webing with a black rubber grip. There is some type of stiffiner inside of the handle of probably molded plastic. They are beefy and give me a good and comfortable grip. They are also easy for a swimmer to grab from the water. They also seem quite strong. As stated above they are dark black and quite attractive. These handles seem to be of better quality than similar sets I have seen by some other brands. The kit comes with pop rivets and washers to install these handles anywhere on a rotomolded or fiberglass boat you like (After drilling holes in the boat.). A rivet gun is understandably not provided. In truth they could be mounted anywhere and on anything you would mount a two screw handle. I will definitely purchase this product the next time I need to replace grab handles on a Kayak and have recomended it to numerous other paddlers with older boats they are re-outfitting.

My 10 ft sit on top (brand not named...) came with weak handles. These were perfect. It was harder for me to get the old ones off than it was to install these new ones. Definitely recommend!!!
