The Kayalu YakBastard® is a ruggedized marine-grade clamp for clamping to a kayak lip or a canoe / boat gunnel (gunwale), capable of hosting any accessories compatible with RAM Mounts socket-and-ball mounting system.
The YakBastard's jaws open to a maximum width of 2 inches (5 cm).
The YakBastard clamp is constructed of marine-grade materials using original component parts of two renown marine vendors, RAM Mounting Systems and Blackhawk/Tite-Lok Inc. The clamp itself is constructed of anodized aluminum with a stainless steel clamp screw and ABS handle. The RAM Mounts balls are manufactured of powder-coated, anodized aluminum.
This YakBastard model includes (1) RAM Mounts 1.5-inch "C" Ball and (1) RAM Mounts 1-inch "B" Ball. Each ball has a threaded stud that is screwed into the clamp.
The YakBastard includes two strips of adhesive-backed foam rubber as a measure of protection for your deck surface from being marred by the clamp's jaws.
The RAM balls are included separately in the YakBastard package, allowing them to be attached, interchanged and removable from either of two holes on the clamp. As an alternative at no extra charge, the balls can be bonded to the clamp with our application of industrial Loctite® threadlocker (see menu options below).
