Confidently secure all fishing poles on board with the YakGear Flush Mount Rod Holder Kit. The patent-pending design features an integrated pad eye into the deck side of the flush mount rod holder to leash your fishing pole. With a fully sealed bottom and a bottom mounted gimble, the flush mount rod holder solves the industry-wide problems of interior leaking and movement within the rod holder. The 8-1/2 inch long rod holder, 1 inch shorter than the usual 9-1/2 inch rod holder enabling the rod to rest comfortably above the deck, needs a 4×4 inch flat deck area for proper installation. WARNING

As always, this complete kit comes with all stainless steel installation hardware, installation instructions, and rigging tips from YakGear. Waterproof silicon recommended, but not included. Fishing pole and leash not included.

  • Flush Mount Rod Holder kit integrates a pad eye to leash a fishing pole

    Most Flush Mount Rod Holders don’t have a place to lash your rod leash to. The Yak Gear holder is the first I have seen to incorporate that. It is a small change that saves a ton of hassle.

  3. Jeff Butler

    I took my two stock flush rod holders out of my kayak because they were low quality and replaced them with this rod holder and pad eye set up. Definitely recommended for replacing crappy rod holders on kayaks for kayak fishing.

  4. Aaron T

    Awesome! Simple, high quality, and better than the junky kayak rod holder I replaced on my old boat.

  5. Jack O’Leary

    Replacing a non-flush mount rod holder with one of these, and installing a second one facing backwards for trolling and/or a Vexilar Sonarphone T-Pod. These install easy and make a tight seal. Plus, they have the loop for a lanyard – no one else seems to have thought of that. After checking out a few alternatives, the Yak Gear flush mount rod holder is the only one that makes sense.

    The Flush Mount Holder works great, bought two of them just to have additional poles ready to use with different tackle. The only drawback was one kit did not come with the mounting bolts so I used the rivets that did. They worked only because I had a rivet gun handy. Another nice thing would be to include the gasket: Brand: Yak Gear – Product Code: FMHGgasket in the kit. That would have made installation a lot easier & cleaner. I would have bought the gaskets up front if I knew they were available.
    p.s. the rivets would not have worked with the gasket, you need the bolts!

    I bought this flush mount rod holder and the rubber gasket that I did have to order separately, and installed it flawlessly. The rivets did work with the rubber gasket and it also did come with bolts that you can use if you have access to the inside of the kayak where you’re installing them.

    I purchased a set of these several years back and was so impressed with them that I just recently ordered another set for my new kayak. The quality, the price, and the fact that all of the needed installation hardware was included for kayaks with, and without, inside access were key factors in my decision. I also like the fact that this was the only model that I found which included the pad eyes. I purchased the rubber gaskets this time as well and found them to be a nice addition.

    Great price for a quality product. They came with everything to mount except the gasket. Love the pad eye attached to use my 3 leash’s i also bought. Also they will not let water into your yak like some other do having a closed bottom.

    Bought two of these flush mount rod holders for my HydroKaddy. The length is perfect and installation was easy. Nice addition to my HydroKaddy which will allow me to carry multiple rods while wading.

  11. Jeff Weis

    Awesome product. Exactly what I was looking for

  12. MARK Obrinsky

    The flush mount rod holder works exactly as hoped. I also want to commend the customer service. I am not particularly handy, left a message with an installation question, and got a call back from YakGear president Bill Bragman himself! He walked me through everything I needed to know, and I took it from there. That’s top notch, in my book.

  13. James Chirico

    The rod holders were exactly as advertised and I am very happy with whole experience. Am already planning a new purchase
