Hi
Anyone know where i might be able to get some of these toggle type thingys?

I have looked through force4's online catologue but unless they're called something else i might have missed them.

Try these...

I think P&H sea kayaks would also sell them, I'm sure I tried a few years ago but never got round to buying any.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is the benefit of them as per the set up in the picture. Do they help hold the shafts of spare paddles in place, or are they intended for another use ?

Quite often used by folks with Greenland paddles as the flat narrow blade can slide under the roller. It allows you to remove and re-stow a one piece paddle on your own whilst on the water.

There’s probably other uses where you want to hold an elastic up to slide something underneath it but that’s too far away to reach by hand.

Thats it!
I want to be able to quickly slide the blade of my paddle under a cord if needed for a rescue or a dodgy beach landing.
I have a cetus but i'm not sure if i'll fit them way up front like the picture. I saw them on a video and figured they would be useful.

Not quite the same thing, but Parrel Beads from the rope stopper section of F4 website would probably have done the job just as well.

I picked a new Cetus up last week and it came with those toggles fitted up front. First time I’d seen them on a boat.
