The Yakima BoatLocker secures a kayak, or other boats, and a paddle to your vehicle. Yakima wants you to be able to use your gear for years to come. Their new BoatLocker system uses a flexible 10 ft locking cable and PaddleCuff (patent pending) to keep your paddle and kayak in place when not in use.

This works well for giving you piece of mind when you're leaving your boats unattended. It's long enough to easily accommodate attaching to your car rack and also can lock your boat to a tree at a campsite. It's almost entirely coated to prevent scratching your car. I haven't attempted to use the paddle attachment, but it looks like it will work well too, although I think it only works for a one piece paddle. I'm completely pleased.
Havn't used other boat locks before but this one works. Left my boat on the car overnight in several places and it was there in the morning. No significant problems with the lock during highway driving.
