                Pete, the bolts in the kit are 3/4" 10-32 stainless steel and the nuts are "well nuts", a flexible rubber shell with a threaded brass insert. Tightening the bolt spreads out the rubber shell creating a seal to keep water out. The nylon eyelets have a 3/8"H x 1/2"W opening.

              Q:

              I installed this kit on my fiberglass kayak, and had no problems. The 'nuts' have a rubber gasket, and when you screw it all tight, the rubber compresses, and creates a tight seal (mine tested watertight) but the arrangement leaves a few mm of screw exposed. Two of the screws are near where my knees brace on the underside of the deck. Any suggestions for how to cover the exposed screw end to reduce knee scrapes?

                Kaare -
                I have a few options, one might work for you.1) You can
                use a hack saw to shorten the bolt a few mm, although getting the nut to
                thread on the shortened bolt might be near impossible. 2) You might be
                able to put a second nut on the bolt end, with the 'nut' side toward the
                bolt so the rubber side faces your thigh. 3) You might find an 'acorn'
                nut at a hardware store to screw on the bolt, covering the end. 4) Get
                some marine grade silicone glue and cover the bolt end with a healthy
                glob, added benefit of waterproofing the hole 5) Glue a piece of closed
                cell foam (eg camping sleeping pad, say 10x10x1 cm) to cover the nut.
                With creative cutting and gluing you will end up with a fine end
                product. On my fiberglass kayaks, I have glued in knee braces under the
                deck that would easily cover the nuts that are giving you problems -
                good luck!

                I actually didn’t experience that excess with that kit myself, but have in
                another context previously. To combat it, I applied some serial dots of
                epoxy on the exposed screw until I developed a protective dome over the
                rough point. The epoxy itself can be torched off it you need to recover
                the screw thread too. Otherwise, I’d suggest trying to cap the excess with
                a rubber or plastic tip that you may find in packaging of something sharp.

                Richard,
                I bought this set of rigging to use on my cedar fiberglass/epoxy coated kayak.
                What I did was drill the holes larger but smaller than the head of the screws.
                Then I put tape on the inside and filled the holes back with epoxy sanded outside flat.
                Then drilled the holes to just fit the screws.
                Doing this kept the fiberglass and wood protected from water getting into the weave and the wood.
                Rigging works well was happy with how it turned out.

                Sorry for the delay, I'm out of the country. I would think it could
                be used easily on a fiberglass boat, tho mine is plastic. You might want
                to buy heavier guage elastic cord depending on the intended use - my sea
                kayak has a mix of elastic and non-elastic cords. I added some new
                attachment points, and change the rudder lines a little. I also replaced
                all my elastic cords as the salt and sun had damaged them over 4 years
                and they lost their snap. Perhaps you might want to back the nylon
                fittings with thin stainless washers underneath to spread the load on
                your deck and prevent cracking or any enlargement of the screw holes.
                Many fiberglass boats have similar deck rigging - check a local kayak
                supplier to see how they do it. Good luck and happy paddling!!

              Hi I am into spearfishing and my kayak (sit on top of) does not have an attachment to secure my spearguns while paddling. Alternatively when I am getting in and out of the water I don't have an attachment to secure my paddle along side the yak. Your deck rigging looks like what I am after except I would need some J hooks as well for ease of release. Can you help with this?

                The deck rigging works great. Silicone the rivets so they are water tight. A couple j hooks threaded onto the bungee will give more flexibility on the tie down options. Even using j hooks as the anchor points well because the bungee can just be crisscrossed on the deck.

                This kit worked well for deck rigging you can use it front and rear
                of the kayak. You can slide the paddle under the bungee cord to
                retain one end and keep a paddle tether strapped to the middle.

                Deck rigging will work- just decide where all you want attachment points. The rigging material has lots of stretch- so plan accordingly. I added a cord lock onto the setup to allow extra tightening.
                I also used j hooks to have more options. Good luck!

                You will find that this and many other products here can help customize your yak to fit many needs and desires. Don't be afraid to drill a hole and put things where you want. Use stainless steel or plastic parts. Good rivets and staniless screws work well. I have added pole holders, paddle tiedowns and numerous other things to our kayaks. NRS is a very good source but look around there are others, including a good marine hardware storew, and surf board shops. Good luck and enjoy.
