  • NRS 1" PVC Dry Bag D-Rings

    Q:

    Will this work on an Alpacka raft? I was thinking to cut the D-ring off and use them in place of the Packraft D-Ring (#38019), since those are out of stock.

      A:

      Gary, you should be able to glue this to your boat with Clifton Urethane Adhesive, Item # 38700.01.

    Q:

    Will these work in a thermoform plastic (Delta) kayak? What type of adhesive would you recommend? I have some JB Weld Plastic Bonder. Is that correct?

      A:

      I don't know. I've used these only with fabric boats (skin over
      frame) and NRS seems to think they are for inflatable rafts and
      similar things. When I've needed to attach D-rings to rigid
      plastic boats, I've used arrangements involving bolts through
      the hull with nuts and washers on the inside (with sealants or
      gap-filling glues around the openings).
      If you go in that direction, try to find something with a
      stainless steel ring and mounting base. And, depending on how
      much stress you expect it to take, an arrangement with two, or
      even four, fastening screws to spread the stresses around.

      A:

      Peter, I can't speak to whether the JB Weld will work; you'll have to check with them. Delta's site says the hull is ABS plastic, with a outer layer they call Solarkote. G/flex Epoxy Adhesive, Item # 50201.01, will definitely bond to both PVC and ABS.

    Q:

    Can these be used inside Kevlar/fiberglass kayak. Marine Goop satisfactory for adhering?

      A:

      I do not know. I have only bonded them to Royalex with Vynabond adhesive. I have no experience with Kevlar/fiberglass composites. I did patch a half-dollar size hole in a Royalex hull one time with a Kevlar and two-part epoxy repair kit I got from Mad River Canoe. The patch has held for 24 years now. I have also used a similar two-part epoxy to bond a hard plastic strap which held a D ring, to a Royalex hull. Those items came in a thigh strap kit I got from Old Town Canoe about 25 years ago. Sorry I'm not more help, but my answer would have to be maybe.

      Never used Goop but u can put these d rings in fiberglass boat. Have never fooled with Kevlar.

      A:

      They can certainly be used on those materials. The trick is getting the right adhesive. I don't know if Marine Goop will work. I do know that G/flex Epoxy, Item # 50201.01, will work. It is great stuff.

      They can be put in any boat as long as you are careful that the adhesive used will not damage the Kevlar or fiberglass

  • NRS 1" PVC Dry Bag D-Rings

    Q:

    I need 1" D-rings to tie airbags down to the floor of an ABS canoe, but don't see such on your site. Are these dry bag ones sturdy enough for that?
    Asked on 3/12/2013 by NYProbe12 from Rye, NY

      A:

      I have almost no idea about the canoe. My somewhat unusual
      application involved having an anchoring point for deck lines on
      a skin-over-frame kayak. After spending some time wondering
      about whether the adhesive would hold up if I attached the rings
      to the outside of the kayak, I realized that the stronger
      solution would be to cut slits in the skin of the boat and put
      the attachment patches on the inside with the D-rings going
      through the skin. That essentially eliminated the strength
      issue because about all the adhesive had to do was to keep
      things together and keep the water out.
      No problems with that. In your situation, I think the real
      question would be about the holding strength of the adhesive --
      the D-rings and their attachment straps themselves seem quite
      strong, so the key question would be whether the patches would
      stay attached to the ABS under whatever stresses the airbags are
      subject to (or cause). And I can't even guess at that.

      I have done it on several canoes. Use vira bond may not be spelled correct.  The only time I put a better "D" ring down is to hold myself in with thigh straps. I do find after a year or two you need to reglue.

      They are plenty tough for that application. I suggest using G/flex Epoxy 655, Item # 2272, for gluing them on.

      They will be plenty sturdy, I have been using them for airbags in my canoe

      I would say yes. For security I would use 4 of them: two at each end of the airbag.

      Yes these work just fine. Between the lacing
      across the gunnels and one of these per bag
      In the floor, you should be good to go.
      Select adhesive to go with it and rough up the back of
      the ring patch and the floor at the desired location.

        These D-Rings are incredible when you want to make secure points for your canoe. I put several in the canoe I use for canoe camping. They are incredible and worth every penny. Pay VERY close attention to the adhesive you use to secure these. Not all adhesives work for all of the kayak and canoe material constructions. I tried to secure 2 of these on my plastic kayak, and they fell off within an hour after an overnight dry session. If properly applied with the RIGHT type of adhesive, they will last the life of your boat. I highly recommend these and NRS is super to deal with. Great company, great product.

          Best Uses

          • Holding Buoyancy Bags

          Comments about NRS 1" PVC Dry Bag D-Rings:

          I use the D Rings to hold both my buoyancy bags and my dry bag gear bags securely in case of a capsize or swamping.
          The D Rings are easy to attach to the boat hull and they hold everything securely.
          I use 2 for each bag, just to be sure, and to provide a good cross tying arrangement to keep things from floating up if the boat's filled with water or capsized.

            I added two D-rings to my one-man raft to lash cargo down. These D-rings were actually intended to use on dry bags and are lighter duty models than the OE ones, but I think they'll hold up fine. All they have to do is hold cargo in place.
