To be used with the KayaArm on a fixed dock in tidal waters
The Tide Pulley, when affixed to one of the attachment holes at the upper end of the KayaArm mast, enables height adjustment of the KayaArm arm that may be needed due to tide level changes upon return from a kayaking excursion. This arrangement consists of attaching the Tide Pulley assembly, replacing the chain with a rope and for tying off the rope adding a cleat at a location that is reachable from the returning kayaker in their kayak.
You Will Need:
- Tide Pulley
- Rope (1/4” polypropylene, twisted type vs braided for low stretch or a length of steel cable)
- Cleat or chain hook
- 7/16” wrench
First, affix the Tide Pulley to your KayaArm as shown in the photos. The bracket, pulley and bolts are assembled to fit onto the right side of the mast when facing the mast from the dock. If you would like it on the left side just assemble it in the mirror image.
