Intended primarily for Folbot Greenland ll kayaks with plastic end caps.Do you have broken end cap ears? We have modified a standard plastic Folbot End Cap by adding a Stainless steel bracket. This will keep the rudder from twisting or breaking off the tabs on your stock plastic end cap or fix a broken one. You will be rewarded with better steering while sailing or paddling.They are great for all other Folbot expedition kayaks as well.This is Popular Product. But I have a problem. I can't buy anymore caps. Order here and send me your stern cap and I will promptly return it with a bracket attached!

To change your Folbot End cap.
1) Remove frame from Hull. Keep all nuts,washers,screws to reinstall.
2) Use a socket to remove stern nut only. This is a carriage bolt embedded in stem. Leave as is.
3) Unzip the hull fully. Reach in and place a short Phillips head screw driver to reach the top screw and turn off the top nut. Roll cap off hull over lower stern bolt carefully.
4) To reinstall: Reuse the white nylon washer found behind fabric. Remove top bolt in rebuilt end cap & push cap over stern bolt and push new longer bolt through fabric and up to cap.
and refasten cap.
