Additional tie-downs are a great way to customize your boat for specialized packing options, like carrying bikes or adding a stern grab line. We offer two types of extra tie downs either unattached (install yourself) or installed by the factory:
- Grab Loop: A 3/4-inch nylon webbing loop bar tacked to a 3-inch diameter base. All Alpacka Series and Whitewater Series packrafts come standard with 4 bow grab loops and two stern grab loops. The Cargo Series and Ultralight Series come standard with specialty tie downs depending on the model.
- Strap Plate: A heavy-duty 3-inch diameter fabric circle with two 1″ slots that you can thread straps through. Strap plates are low profile and great for securing bikes, skis, fly rod cases, etc.
- Lightweight Carrying Handles (Pair): Carrying handles are an easy way to carry your inflated boat on portages. Expedition models include two handles installed on the interior sides of the boat. All Cargo Hull models and the Caribou include a carrying handle installed on the bow.
- Single D-Rings (Pair): Single D-Rings are ideal for self-installing a backband. They are included standard with the retrofit backband kit.
Note: These additional tie-downs are only for DIY installation only. If you want to retrofit any of these options to an existing boat, please place your order through our Service Page.
