Universal Receiver



The Universal Receiver (UR) is the most universal Canoe/Kayak accessory on the market. The Universal Receiver allows you to utilize Stabilizer Floats, Portage Wheels, and our Rowing kit.  All of these functions utilizing the same Universal Receiver.

The Universal Receiver is made in different lengths to fit all canoes and kayaks. Standard sizes are 30″, 36″, 40″ and 45″. To size your canoe for a UR, first, measure your canoe at it’s widest point. Measuring the widest point gives you the option to place the UR anywhere on your canoe that is comfortable. Once the widest measurement is had, we advise purchasing the next closest size up to your canoe width. (Example a Canoe Width that is 38″ Wide, we recommend a 40″ Universal Receiver). This is to ensure that all potential accessory applications (Stabilizer Floats, Rowing Outriggers, Slip-On Wheels) work to the best of their ability. Most canoe gunwales have inside lips for clamping, meaning your clamps will be on the inside of the canoe. However, some canoe gunwales have outside lips, and in this case your clamps will clamp to the outside of your canoe. If this is your circumstance, please go up one UR size when ordering.
