Adding YakAttack NiteStripe to your Kayak adds visibility and safety in low light conditions and looks cool as well...Bonus ! The strip can be added to your paddle as well. Materials needed to get started: Denatured Alcohol clean rag knife or scissors old credit card or plastic putty card YakAttack NiteStripe in your color choice I decided to use the kayaks mold seam running along the side. Clean with alcohol to remove mold release,slime,oil and dirt . This allows the NiteStripe to stick better. I rounded teh edge of stripe to prevent the corners from peeling. Sticking the stripe in one foot increments makes for a straighter line. Smooth the stripe with the card to remove any air bubbles trapped under the stripe. Cut the ends in a radius to prevent the edges from lifting. Cleaning the surface with alcohol is good for decals too. (in my best M.A.S.H. announcer voice) That is all . . .
