SUP Paddle Repair – Tightening or Replacing the Cable on a Accent or Kialoa Adjustable Paddles
I have a few adjustable lever-lock Accent paddles that after two years of heavy use in saltwater from my students, and my lack of care that have cables inside the shafts have loosened, thus the rubber ring on the bottom of the interior shaft doesn’t tighten, so the handle isn’t secure.A quick field fix is to tape the interior / exterior shafts but the better more long term solution is to tighten the nut on the bottom the interior shaft, or replace the interior cable if tightening isn’t working.
Kialoa Paddles created some videos showing solutions for both..
