NOTE: A Philips screwdriver is required for assembly of this kit. The kit includes two extension tubes, marine-grade hardware, a custom wrench and step-by-step instructions. Estimated assembly time: 5-10 minutes.
The Kayalite Extension Kit enables the owner of a factory-assembled 18-inch Kayalite to extend the light's height, based on preference, to either 21 inches (53 cm) or 28 inches (71 cm).
The 28-inch pole assembly of a Kayalite 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 a Kayalite is designed for mounting on a substantially flat or slightly contoured surface.
The original, factory-assembled Kayalite model s 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 Extension Kit requires disassembly of the Kayalite and reassembly. Marine-grade stainless steel bolts, nylon-insert locknuts, a custom-size wrench, and step-by-step instructions are included. Replacements are provided for the Kayalite's existing bolt and locknut. A Phillips screwdriver is required for assembly.
NOTE: While it is possible with this extension kit to assemble a Kayalite to one of two different heights, and to combine extension kits for added height, we do not recommend the routine disassembly and reassembly of any 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 assembly and use, rinse nuts and bolts with fresh water and wipe clean of any residue before reassembling.
