Default Rope/Lead Guide

Hey guys! First post here. I just picked up my first yak. It's a 2012 OK Trident 13. My local outdoors store had a NOS model laying around that they made me a sweet deal on. The only thing that was wrong with it is, most of the shock cord and rope are shot. They were kind enough to give me replacement cordage, but I am installing it.

So as I am replacing the shock cord and rope to raise and lower the rudder, I notice that the lines cross over the cargo area in the back. It looks to me like I could install some sort of eyelet/cleat/fairlead on the side to route the lines around the cargo area. Does anyone have a suggestion that I could use for this? Thanks in advance for any help that can be given!

You can find the shock cord on Amazon That is where I bought mine to replace mine. Here it is https://www.amazon.com/Elastic-Bunge...hock+cord+3+16
I use it for all kinds of different things.

Default Cheap fairleads.

I use the hangers for Closet Maid shelving for fairleads. It works great with 550 cord. (Parachute cord.)

I have several of them installed as hardpoints for securing gear. The little "J" shaped pieces are handy to use with ball bungees.

I have several end shelf brackets that really look handy but I haven't figured handy for what yet. They are very strong.

I install most of the stuff on my yak with stainless screws. If it needs to be very strong, I use bolts W/nuts and plastic backing plates.

Velcro straps are mighty handy too. Lots of rods could be saved if more folks secured their tackle with Velcro.

Thanks Daniel. They gave me replacement shock cord and rope already. I'm looking for some sort of marine grade cleat or fairlead to cleanly route the lines.
