Add an elegant touch to your next kayak. These recessed deck line padeyes create a secure tie down anchor for rigging deck lines on a kayak or similar small boat.

These deckline fittings feature room for two 1/4" [~6.5mm] diameter lines. The lines can either be standard rope or elastic shock cord. The bar the rope is looped under is formed in a "dovetail" shape to resist pulling out. Properly installed one of these fittings is plenty strong enough to lift the whole kayak.
