All the essentials for a basic Z-Drag set-up in one small kit, created specifically to address the needs of creek boaters.
  • This kit includes a throw bag with rope, prusik cord, tubular webbing, carabiners and pulleys. All the essentials to effectively un-pin a stuck boat. See the full list of included pieces in the Specs tab.
  • The Z-Drag crib sheet, also included in the kit, will walk you through the steps if it's your first real-life rescue situation, or refresh your memory if it's been awhile since that last swiftwater course.
  • This kit fits easily in any whitewater kayak or canoe, and with all the un-pinning essentials, you'll always be prepared for an unplanned rescue.
  • This un-pin kit is catered specifically to kayak-rescue situations. The rope in the throw bag has a 2,495 pound breaking strength. It is possible to set up a Z-Drag with the included equipment, however, we recommend purchasing a Z-Drag Kit (item # 45314.01) for potential rescue situations involving much bigger, heavier rafts and catarafts.
We highly recommend you take a swiftwater rescue course in your local area. Play safe!

How To: Stuff a Rescue Throw Bag (3:49)

In this instructional video from NRS, we show you how to re-stuff your rescue throw bag so it will be ready to go when you need it most. A poorly stuffed rope bag can not only be frustrating, it can be dangerous. Properly stuffing your throw rope keeps it free of knots and tangles that can impede a swift-water rescue while whitewater kayaking, rafting or canoeing.

    Comments about NRS Kayak Un-Pin Kit:

    Headline says it all. Just took a swift water rescue class over the weekend. What did we use? A well used couple of these kits (or at least most of the parts there of) that still work like a dream.

      Q:

      This kit seems to imply that 6mm Prusik cord is going to be effective on a 1/4" throw rope. Can you please explain this decision? It would seem that the NRS 3/8" throw bag would work better, and I'm skeptical of the effectiveness of the setup in this kit.

        A:

        Jorge, the prusik that comes with this kit is 5 mm in diameter. The 1/4" Dyneema rope has a 2,495 breaking strength. We've not received feedback from customers that the components don't work well together. We have a wide range of rope and hardware components you can use to design an unpin kit you prefer - http://www.nrs.com/category/2695/whitewater-kayaking/whitewater-safety

        A:

        I did set up a test z line and the prusik did hold but I must say I would rather work with 3/8 line, if only for a better hand feel/grip. I was also concerned about stretch on a toss line when being used as a recovery line. ButI thankfully I haven't had to test any limits yet.

      Q:

      Is the rope in this kit equally as strong as the rope in the NRS Z-Drag Kit with Purest Duffel Bag kit? Can you do a Z drag with the rope included in the un-in kit?

        A:

        Sarah, the rope in the throw bag has a 2,495 pound breaking strength. The rope in the Z-Drag Kit is rated at over 9,000 pounds. You can certainly set up a Z-drag with the rope in the bag and the other pieces in the kit. This kit is aimed at helping in kayaker rescue, whereas the other kit is for the much bigger, heavier rafts and catarafts.

        A:

        I'm sorry, I dont know anything about the Purest duffel bag kit. This kit
        is designed to be used to set up a z-drag so all parts should be good to go
        for the basics. However, I've never had to use it other than in a training
        environment.
