The IQ Flotation/Gear Lash In System is designed to provide a convenient, secure means to attach flotation bags or any gear or equipment you would like to your canoe. Installation requires no permanent modification to your canoe, no drilling, no mounting of hardware and the system is easily and quickly removed when not necessary or desired. The system can also be positioned wherever desired in the canoe: the bow, center or stern. This versatility is the cornerstone of Mad River’s IQ Gunwale System.
Insert rounded bead on Lash In System into interior slot of gunwale. Entry slots are positioned on either side of the center thwart behind the bow deck, and in front of stern deck. A Spreader Tool is available should you wish to install additional entry slots into the rail system for a specific application. Slide the lash in system to desired location. There are evenly spaced lash loops sewn to the system to secure gear or flotation bags.
The Lash In System can be easily cut to shorter lengths if desired. Cut with sharp knife or scissors and then seal the edge of cut fabric with flame to prevent unravelling. Seal the end of the bolt rope as well, making sure that any melted edges are smoothed and flush with diameter of boltrope to enable boltrope to slide easily into slot in IQ gunwale.
To remove, simply pull system towards nearest exit slot and pull out of gunwale.
NOTE: ALL IQ MODULES SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM CANOE WHEN CARTOPPING TO PREVENT DAMAGE OR LOSS.
