KanuLock is an Australian company based in the Northern Rivers, New South Wales. In 2004, the founder of KanuLock struggled with an old problem of not being able to lock surf and windsurf boards to roofracks. In search of a simple and compact security device for the roof rack, KanuLock was born. By late 2005, KanuLock became the world's first Lockable tiedown straps. Since 2005, KanuLock has provided many fellow surfers, windsurfers and paddlers world wide the benefits of being able to lock their boards and kayaks to their roofracks.
