These are great for the kids to attach to their kayaks. My son has lost his paddle a couple times and someone else had to go grab it and bring it back to him. I wish we had thought to buy this sooner, because it is perfect, guaranteeing he won't lost his paddle in the future. I love the black because it blends with our kayaks. This definitely serves its purpose and was easy to attach to both the kayak and the paddle. 5 stars!
