The FENDER spike ™ consists of a Line Tube passing through the center of a MainTube. The Main Tube is notched at the bottom to securely lock in place in your rod holder. This keeps the Line Tube pointing towards the side of the hull.
Pass the fender line through the Line Tube from the outside inward toward the center of the boat. Drop a single loop of line over the exposed end of the FENDER spike ™ so that the free end is pinched against the Main Tube and you're done!
To adjust, simply pull lightly on the free end until your fender is at the proper height and let go! The FENDER spike ™ will pinch the fender line and lock your fender securely in place!
TIP: We recommend a figure-8 or overhand knot in the end of your fenderline to keep the line in place when the fender (and FENDER spike ™) are stowed.
