Hello everyone: my club has an older model Hurricane that doesn't have the twist lock iakos, it has the kind that have the metal "button" that snaps into one of three positions into the canoe. The button part is this metal v-shaped clip that is now not doing its job - sometimes it gets stuck inside the iako and we have to dig it out, sometimes it is falling right out of the iako.
I can rebend this button-clip so it's a little more snug in the iako, but I don't see this as a long term fix, does anybody else have this problem? Can a new clip even be purchased anymore? Any other ideas on a way to attach this type of iako to the boat? otherwise the canoe works great.
