Trimlok brand trim edge is best used for replacement of the finished edge of a sit-in-side kayak cockpit. This same material may also be used on some hatch openings as trim, but not as a gasket. This size is common on Old Town and Necky kayaks, and may be used on other makes and models. Please measure your kayak cockpit carefully. It is much better to have extra rather than to come up short. Instructions are not included, but the application is simple. Remove old trim. Apply the new trim edge to the cockpit coaming, starting on the centerline behind the seat. Apply the trim firmly along the entire perimeter of the coaming. Ensure that the U-Channel is fully engaged. Cutting the trim edge is the last step. Cut a tiny bit too long for the best results. You can always cut it shorter; cannot make it longer again. Use 3M weather strip adhesive if you feel the need for adhesive.
