MOUNTS

Styles to Fit a Variety of Kayaks & SUPs 

All of our mounts work with both the Versa Paddle and Gamut Paddle Holder. Each one is designed to fit a particular type of kayak, including sit-insides, sit-on-tops, SUPs, tandems and folding kayaks.  View our mount comparison chart,  demonstration videos or list of compatible kayaks to see which is best for your  kayak.

Hinged Mount

HINGED MOUNT -
FOR SIT INSIDE KAYAKS

Considered the "gold standard" of our mounts, the innovative Hinged Mount is unparalleled in both features and performance.  Designed for sit-inside kayaks, it attaches at three separate points around the cockpit coaming to provide maximum stability while paddling.

 

A small hinge plate fastens to the front edge of the coaming and two stabilizing brackets attach to the side coamings. The length of both the vertical bar and the horizontal bars can be adjusted to fit a range of kayaks. Once attached, the Hinged Mount lifts upward for ease of entrance and exit. The ball joints on the horizontal arms gently rest in the side brackets. To ensure a safe wet exit, the arms easily pop out of the side brackets allowing the hinge to effortlessly swing open.

 

A short vertical post and base slip into the universal track on top of the mount to support the Versa Paddle or Gamut Paddle Holder. The base can be moved forward or backward for ideal positioning. The track system also accommodates other accessories, such as a mounted camera. The Hinged Mount can be easily removed with the pull of a pin and used on another kayak; only the small hinge plate and side stabilizing brackets remain on the kayak.

APEX MOUNT - 
FOR SIT-INS, SOTS & SUPS

The Swiss Army Knife of mounts, our versatile Apex Mount is the perfect option when other mounts don’t quite fit. It works with a wide range of kayaks, including sit-insides, sit-on-tops, stand up paddle boards (SUPs), foldable kayaks and even some inflatables!

Designed to function with a variety of attachment options, the Apex Mount features plus-shaped grooves and tightening knobs on each corner.  These grooves, along with a uniquely shaped underside, windows slots and molded edges, enable the Apex Mount to accommodate the variety of ridges, cupholders, hatches and other encumbrances found across the spectrum of kayak designs. 

The Apex Mount can be attached with a number of different methods, including our extremely high-grip, patented sticky cups, t-nuts and tracks, straps and other custom methods. See details here

TWIN TRACK MOUNT -
FOR SIT-ON-TOP KAYAKS

Simplicity is the name of the game with our Twin Track Mount. Intended primarily for sit-on-top kayaks or SUPs, this mount comes in handy when space is limited. It comes with two aluminum RAM Mounts Tough-Tracks and a RAM Mounts Track Base for Spline Posts.

The mount is placed directly in front of the seat at approximately arms’ length from your body. To attach the two tracks in parallel to the top of your SOT deck, you can either use a blind installation method or secure them to a hatch cover.  The distance between tracks needs to match the width of track base (generally 3.5"), which slides on using t-nuts and tightening knobs. Please measure carefully before ordering to ensure the tracks will fit your kayak.

A support post with a spline adapter slips into base to support the Versa Paddle or the Gamut Paddle Holder. The base can be moved forward or backward on the tracks for ideal positioning or removed entirely when not in use. The tracks also accommodate other accessories, such as rod holders or mounted cameras.

CUSTOM MOUNTS - 
FOR SIT-INS, SOTS & SUPS

Every kayak is unique. Some have cupholders or molded ridges. Some have a rounded coaming, while others are sharp. Some have angled keels, and some are flat. Because of the diversity of kayak models, it’s impossible to create a mount that fits them all (believe us, we’ve tried!). If you’ve reviewed our other mounts and none seem to be the right fit, there’s a good chance we can help you assemble a custom mount that will.

We partner with RAM Mounts, YakAttack and other paddle sports manufacturers to offer a range of base mounts, track lengths and support post heights. We’ve also documented the impressive array of custom mounts are customers have created. You can find most of them in this blog post.

If you’re unsure whether any of our standard mounts will work, or you’d like to brainstorm other options, please contact us. We find it particularly helpful when people include one or two photos of the kayak cockpit area at different angles so that we can visualize possible solutions.
