    Comments about Padz Canoe Contoured Knee Pads:

    Knee pads came with no installation instructions. They are too short, and need to be half again as long in order to allow the paddler to change position as needed for comfort. They lack a knee block in front; without such a brace, my knees (and legs) kept slipping forward so that I constantly had to reposition myself. If the manufacturer would address these issues these would be good knee pads.

      I would suggest that you scuff up the spot then clean with alcohol and then stick. I didn't read any directions, maybe it already says that.. Great Product!

              The knee pads went through a rigorous test on a 10-day trip on the upper Yellowstone River. Passed with flying colors. The adhesive never failed.
              My only negative remark is that one pair isn't long enough. I purchased two sets, one set for each knee. This worked but some separation occurred where the knee pads came together.

                  Price is per pair, and yes, the high side goes out. They are very
                  comfortable.

                  They come in a pair & the thicker side goes to the outside of the
                  knee.asthat's where the most pressure will be. They're great, really
                  comfortable,
                  but I've had problems with the self adhesive not sticking after a while.
                  Needed to be re-glued.

                  It is a pair. I think the large side goes out but really could be done
                  either way.

                  I glued a set in a canoe for myself. As it turned out I traded/sold the canoe. the person that got it told me I had pads in wrong. I say to u as I did to them I liked what I had done and it worked for me. So I say to u make it feel good to u. Not all like the same thing. First thing I do to a canoe is move seat. (And I drill about 36 holes in it). This is for end lines and float bags.

                  I purchased these several years ago and at the time they were packaged as a
                  pair. I cannot say if that is still true.
                  The taller side should go to the outside to provide more of a brace from
                  the kneeling position when leaning.

                  I would say yes the out side of your boat is where you apply pressure with
                  your knees for turning.

                  Generally the the higher side (left side in the product photo) should be
                  towards the gunwale (the outside of your knee), but it all comes down to
                  what feels and works best for you.

                  I have installed my knee pads with the high edge to the outside. Install
                  note: make sure the area is super clean and then place a weight on each
                  pad over night to ensure it sticks. I had one fall off, while the boat was
                  on the car, and magically it stuck to the roof of the car just enough to
                  not get lost.

                  Higher side closer to the canoe wall. But before you glue them in you should make sure they are comfortable. I sometimes tape them in place and paddle around in flat water to be sure they are where I want them before I glue them in.

                  The taller, thicker side of the pads should be on the outside. This is
                  because your knees will push outward against them as you kneel in the
                  boat.

                  My pad is flat. If u have something under your knee to not be on a hard surface is all of is about. I would say do what feels best for u. What some like others do not. U need to be secure ( like knee straps ) and on pads on bottom to be able to get a good stroke. Sit up straight both hands over gunnells. Shoulder pointed toward paddle for normal forward stroke.

                  I have put the higher edge of the pad towards the outside of the boat.
                  This may not be "correct" but it made sense to me for bracing purposes
                  against the outside edge of the boat. Hope that helps.

                  Colin, yes they will stick to aluminum. Clean the surface thoroughly with a good solvent. Using a fine sandpaper to take the sheen off the aluminum will improve adhesion.

                  The adhesive is pretty sticky and worked ok on my Dagger Caper (Royalex) for 1 season. I replaced them with pads I could glue onto the boat when I changed the overall outfitting. Can't speak to how well they'll hold up over longer exposure to water and sun, but I didn't have any issues with them. My suggestion to get the most out of them is to prep the surface by cleaning it well, make sure it's dry and the material temperature isn't too cool - basic considerations you'd take with most adhesives.

                  I purchased these to use on a Royalex canoe so I haven't tried them on aluminum, but they felt like they used a pretty general purpose adhesive that I would expect to stick on most any clean smooth surface. The adhesive felt sticky to the touch like a typical sticker and not the slick feeling of a plastic to plastic adhesive like pvc glue if that was your concern.

                  Colin,
                  I have a Kevlar and a Rolex canoes so I didn't try the on aluminum. In the past (long time ago I had an aluminum canoe and used an old Ensolite sleeping pad cut into squares and layered up to make knee pads and they stuck to the Al for years until I sold the boat. They will adhere to Al if you use glue made for use with aluminum. Contact cement would probably work best and I'm sure epoxy would work, too. When I got them, they didn't come with adhesive, so I had to buy that separately. I didn't order it from NRS, sometimes volatile/flammable/explosive materials can't be shipped so I just went to the local hardware store and to get the glue. I used a good (i.e. expensive, professional grade, waterproof) contact cement. It's been a while and no issues.
                  Good luck & good boating!
                  Cheers,
                  John

                  I attached these knee pads to a wild river rotomolded plastic canoe and
                  they have many miles on them and with heavy abuse and still stuck down
                  good. I would assume if they can stick to the plastic this good they would
                  have no problem with aluminum.
