      Comments about NRS Vigilante Cable Lock:

      We bought two cable locks and put them together to lock up eight kayaks on our kayak trailer. One cable should be long enough for most applications but we used 2 cables together for our larger trailer to secure more kayaks. It's thin cable so it threads nicely through the drain holes. Combo lock is easy to set! We've been using the cable locks for about a month now and have no complaints. We're happy customers and will buy again!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Product arrived on time and was in brand new packaging. I'm pleased with NRS's shipping/delivery methods.

          This is a great way to secure your kayaks to your car rack. I used two 10' cables on front and back of tube rack securing two old town dirigos. When traveling to places you are not familiar with gives you some comfort in knowing it will be hard for some one to steal them.

            I'd been looking for a longer cable to lock up my two boats when either shuttling or an overnight stay. This is the perfect solution. Long cable, integrated lock, compacts and stows easily. It's not going to protect you from someone with a bolt cutter, but provides the deterrent you need 99.9% of the time.

            Designed with kayaks in mind

                Comments about NRS Vigilante Cable Lock:

                This product is used as a deterrent against the casual opportunistic thief who might scoop up a loose untethered kayak. It is also employed as a last ditch attachment to the trailer if the tie down ropes and ratchet straps should come loose. By running the cable through the trailer frame it will give me time to pull over if the other restraints should fail. The cable head and floating lock allow me to easily deploy the cable through the kayak, adjust the cable accordingly to what is available to lock the kayak to. The 10' cable is amply long to restrain multiple kayaks. The thinness of the cable does also work against it because it would not withstand the assault of someone with a decent cable cutter. As I stated at the beginning it turns away the opportunist which is exactly what I had in mind for this cable, otherwise I store my kayaks under lock and key

                    You can lock your SUP through the carry handle or D-rings. To lock up both SUP and paddle, check out the Yakima BoatLocker with PaddleCuff.

                    You can't.
                     
                    I either take the paddle with me or just stuff it down into the kayak.
                    Looping around the paddle several times will fool most folks; but with the paddle breaking down, one can just slide it off/
                    You need some sort of locking clamp.

                    I don’t think you can lock you paddle to your board with this device. I use it to lock my kayak to my roof rack. My paddle goes with me or is in the car.

                    It's pretty slim. Probably 1/8th inch. It is handy for securing the kayak to the roof rack, probably would prevent a snatch and grab if you stopped at the grocery store on the way to your destination, but it's nothing that a bolt cutter couldn't defeat in a few seconds.Hope this helps

                    A:

                    Hi,
                    I couldn't immediately locate the cable to take a measurement; it's about
                    as small as a plastic coated steel cable can be. It's actually a pretty
                    good system except for one thing: there's a small lever on the lock itself
                    that you move to left or right to be able to rotate the numbers, if that
                    make's sense. For me, the lever was a real pain and caused me to stop using
                    the lock altogether, because it was hard to move over far enough to open
                    the lock and was too small to get any leverage on it. So I can't recommend
                    it for that reason.

                    I will assume he wants to know the diameter of the cable on this cable lock and not just a definition of 'cable diameter' as his question reads.   The plastic-coated cable measures about .175 inches (about 3/16 of an inch) or about 4.4 millimeters in diameter (including the plastic coating).

                    Cable diameter is .5 cm.
                    Length is adequate to secure one boat, not two. Make sure your boat has a
                    handle or other secure spot to pass cable through. One of our Current
                    Design boats did; another did not.
