Contact Tow System

Contact Tow System

This is a quick release contact tow system for rafting two sea kayaks together during towing or rescue situations. The contact tow uses two carabiners to easily secure the boats together. We have added a side release buckle to quickly separate the kayaks in an emergency, without having to touch the carabiners, which are under strain during a contact tow.

We have also added an easy-adusting cam-style buckle to quickly secure the boats together with just the right amount of distance between them. Made of quality 1" nylon webbing (not tubular) and high quality plastic buckles.

This is by far our most popular item with kayaking instructors, BCU coaches and paddlers going for 4-star and 5-star BCU training and assessments. It's a quality piece of gear and makes a great gift for any serious paddler. Here are some photos of the contact tow in use -- click on each photo for a larger version in a new window.
