TieYak – Kayak Security Cables
One of the weaknesses of car roof-racks as well as my Yakima roof-rack-like kayak trailer for transporting kayaks is that there is no way to lock them to the rack for security when parked at hotels and restaurants, etc.
The trailer can be locked to the vehicle or it can be locked with a chain to a tree, etc. but the shape of the kayaks makes them very hard to effectively cable or lock to the trailer racks. So, no one is going to steal the trailer (without bolt cutters), but they might steal the boats.
I found the below recently online and just installed them on the trailer. I like how they work, hopefully they will keep the kayaks secure during this summer’s trips:
