Definition: A kayak strap is a high strength strap that is used to strap a kayak, canoe, or other boat to the roof of a car. Kayak straps have a buckle at one end with a lever style button. The strap is placed through the buckle and pulled tight. Kayak straps are designed to allow the strap to pull through one way but not the other. To release the strap you must push and hold in the button on the buckle.
