SideKick ama kit is simple, light weight and effective! Floats are inflatable. The SideKick’s cross arms adjust the float height with a simple “click-twist-click”. Just like a paddle shaft adjustment. Three positions offer you high - medium - low positions. Set the floats high for cruising (less drag) or secondary stability. Use the medium or low settings for primary stability (less initial roll). Fine adjustments for float height are done by twisting the main crossbar within its mounts and tensioning with the fastening hardware. Set up and use right off the beach or disassemble and deflate to store inside the hull. Then assemble and inflate when you get to your dive or fishing spot. Inflation is simple. Just blow a few breaths into each float through their one-way valves. Valve cap unscrews for rapid deflation. Installs with 4 bolts using expanding nuts. Not for use on Pro Angler models.
