Just like virtually all IQ modules, the IQ Footbrace is fully adjustable for use in multiple positions. It is adjustable both as to position and to height. Now paddlers of all sizes can take full advantage of the benefits of using a footbrace: increased efficiency, stability, and comfort. And for the first time, it’s not necessary to drill holes in your hull to mount a footbrace.
INSTALLATION & OPERATION
NOTE: WE RECOMMEND ALL IQ MODULES BE REMOVED FROM GUNWALES PRIOR TO CARTOPPING YOUR CANOE TO PREVENT DAMAGE OR LOSS. However, we also recognize that with a footbrace it’s inconvenient to remove and to lose desired positioning. Included with the kit is a 1/8” bungee cord with hooks. When transporting an IQ canoe with footbrace in place, use bungee cord to secure in place. Loop one end of bungee cord around center of cross bar and pass other end over thwart and clip it to itself. Make sure bungee is taut enough to prevent the footbrace assembly from “walking” down the slot in the gunwale to point where it can reach a feeder slot and possibly fall out of gunwale.
