NOTE: A Philips screwdriver is required for assembly of this kit. Estimated assembly time: 5-10 minutes.
The Kayalite XT Dual Height Kit is a user-configurable, bright white, 360°, portable stern light for any watercraft classified by the U.S. Coast Guard as a "vessel under oars" including dinghy, kayak, sit-on-top, stand-up paddleboard, racing shell, canoe, rowboat or surfski.
With this dual-height kit, a Kayalite XT can be assembled, based on user preference, to either 21 inches (53 cm) or 28 inches (71 cm).
The 28-inch pole assembly of the Kayalite XT is designed for mounting on a flat surface, such as the top of a hatch or SOT crate cover, canoe bench or flat deck area.
The 21-inch assembly of the Kayalite XT is designed for mounting on a substantially flat or slightly contoured surface.
The Kayalite XT provides all the features of the original 18-inch Kayalite model, including Kayalu's patented "Secure-Attach™" mounting system; impact-proof construction; diffusion lens developed in collaboration with Tektite Industries, Inc.; and Tektite 2-LED module.
The original, factory-assembled Kayalite model, available here, is engineered for paddlers benefiting from its 18-inch height, optimal for sit-in kayaks and for stability over a range of mounting surfaces.
The Kayalite XT Dual Height Kit requires minor assembly. Marine-grade stainless steel bolts, nylon-insert locknuts, a custom-size wrench, and step-by-step assembly instructions are included. A Phillips screwdriver is required for assembly.
NOTE: While it is possible to assemble this kit to one of two different heights, and to reassemble the Kayalite XT in order to test which height is optimal for your application, we do not recommend routine disassembly and reassembly of a Kayalite XT (or any factory-assembled Kayalite model). Marine-grade, stainless steel, nylon-insert locknuts are subject to wear if repeatedly unscrewed and re-screwed with stainless steel bolts. If disassembly is required after use, rinse nuts and bolts with fresh water and wipe clean of any residue before reassembling.
