TOOL - SCREW IN FITTINGS
Hobie's kayak deck fasteners allow you to customize your boat with the fasteners of your choice wherever a molded-in-thread is present on the kayak (each Hobie model has several positions available).
The Hobie screw-in fittings can be easily removed and replaced using the tool shown below. However, a pair of long nose pliers is a pretty good surrogate. Padeye style fittings can be easily removed by being levered through the padeye with a screwdriver.
