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.

DRYBAG D RINGS

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Holding Buoyancy Bags

    Comments about NRS Dry Bag 1" D-Ring PVC Patch:

    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.

                        A:

                        I'm assuming your inflatable board material is PVC. If so, these will certainly work. Use either Clifton Urethane Adhesive, Item # 38700.01, or Stabond Adhesive, # 38704.01.

                        This ring should work just fine. The glue you want to use is Vynabond.
                        Follow the directions carefully. For boats you clean first with acetone.
                        Make sure this is OK to clean the inflatable with.

                        A:

                        No experience with inflatable paddle boards but I'd assume that,
                        if you can find a nice even surface, pasted-on D-Rings would be
                        no more, and maybe less, stressful on them than on kayaks or
                        rafts. On the other hand, these are, as other reviewers point
                        out, fairly light-duty and might not be strong enough if you
                        were pulling against your weight rather than, e.g., lifting or
                        tying on the paddle board (as with dry bags). In my kayak
                        application, I fastened them through the hull so the ring is on
                        the outside but the patch part is on the inside -- that is a
                        much stronger, but probably rare, use. Also, make sure your
                        paddle board is PVC -- mixtures or plastics and adhesives for
                        different of them sometimes don't work.

                        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.

                        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.

                        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.

                      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?

                      • VERIFIED BUYER

                        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.

                        I used these on my small one person raft and they are sturdy. I used them to strap things to the raft.

                        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.
