We have both Loop and Strap Packraft Tiedowns in stock. Both are a great addition to an Iron Raft Packraft Build for securing cargo such as backpacks, bikes and alike!
- Loop Tiedown – have a fabric loop attached to the plate, to clip items to or run lines through.
- Strap Tiedown – have a slot to run lines or belts through, also allows you to secure luggage closer to your raft.
When installing your tiedowns we suggest doing so when you Iron Raft is built, this helps with the placing of each tiedown. Ensure when installing them that you aren’t sticking them where they may get in the way of your paddle stroke. Take a look below for our suggestions of where you may want to think about installing some tiedowns.
Please note: The Aquasure that comes with our DIY Iron Raft Packraft Kit, and the Aquasure that we sell on our store is NOT a suitable adhesive for attaching these tiedowns to your raft. It will not be strong enough to hold these on when they’re under stress.
We suggest using the following: Inflatable Boat PVC Adhesive
You can buy this online, and from the U.K. meaning there won’t be an issue with postage (if you’re U.K. based of course). If you are based in Europe, and cannot get access to these easily, try ‘Helaplast adhesive’.
