Repair Jackson Cross Link?????????

Post by elvina » Mon Aug 19, 2019 12:23 pm


The area that the cleat attaches to on my sons Jackson Star kayak has developed a crack. As its cross link we cant weld it. Has anyone got any feedback please on repairing this sort of problem please?

I would write to Jackson Kayaks directly, they should be able to advise and (I think) are pretty good at getting back to you quickly.

Might be worth taking to an auto plastic repair specialist. I know of at least one crosslink Jackson that was successfully repaired, though in the area as you describe it may be too difficult. Worth asking though.

Does the crack just run through the cleat or is/will it spread through the cockpit rim? If its just the cleat that is affected could you fit a new cleat or ratchet backrest and not use the cracked cleat?
