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 ball is manufactured of powder-coated, anodized aluminum.
This YakBastard model includes one (1) RAM Mounts 1-inch "B" Ball. The ball has a threaded stud that is screwed into the clamp. The clamp has two possible locations for mounting the ball, one on the top and one on the side. Additional "B" and "C" size balls can be purchased separately.
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 ball is included separately in the YakBastard package, allowing it to be attached, interchanged with another ball and removable from either of two holes on the clamp. As an alternative at no extra charge, the ball can be bonded to the clamp in either of the two holes with our application of industrial Loctite® threadlocker (see menu options below).
