Default Need locking loop for kayak

Igo kayak as well.

I've used stainless steel U bolts instead of the cable type loops on one
sea kayak. If you don't need the flex of the cable type, that's an option.
You can get the parts at any decent marine shop (I got it at
a Home Depot - don't know of a similar European big-box hardware
store. I used one U bolt. two bars to close the U and four nuts - one
bar and two nuts inside and one bar and two nuts outside the hull.

You might prefer the flexy cable type on a short WW kayak, though -
you'll hit it in rolling eventually.
