The Kayalu Leg Brace provides stability to the Kayalu Radpole (at left, upper) and Kayalu Surfpole (at left, lower) as well as third party gear poles.
The Kayalu Leg Brace is available in two lengths, 18" and 22". The 22" leg brace is suited for use with all Radpole models and taller Surfpole models (14", 23", 29" arm). For shorter Surfpole models (9", 11" arm), we recommend the shorter 18" Leg Braces. Leg braces may be paired in different lengths for custom installations.

Kayalu Leg Braces are available with either a rigid base or a suction cup base.
This leg brace has a rigid base that is bolted to the desired surface (e.g. kayak deck). Stainless steel bolts, washers and nylon-insert locknuts are included. A 5/32" drill bit for easy installation is also included.
The leg brace clamps to a Surfpole or Radpole with its stainless steel u-bolt and marine-grade aluminum ball. The u-bolt and its assembly can be secured firmly to any pole or handlebar of .5" to 1 inch in diameter. All mounting hardware is included.
For maximum flexibility, the leg brace has four degrees of freedom. Leg flexibility allows your Surfpole or Radpole to be easily repositioned. Leg braces can be loosened or tightened as needed. Once in place, the leg brace can be tightened firm.
Some assembly is required. As shown at right, a crescent wrench is used to tighten two stainless steel nylon-insert locknuts to the u-bolt.
The leg brace's two couplers are spring-loaded, allowing them to be loosened and tightened with a single hand.
The leg brace assembly is constructed of marine grade lightweight aluminum, stainless steel and composite polymers - no ABS plastic. Its base, balls, couplers and u-bolt clamp are manufactured by RAM Mounting Systems. The extension arm of the leg brace is manufactured of marine-grade stainless steel. All components are intended for saltwater and freshwater use, and are resistant to harsh sunlight and UV.
