Adjusting your LeverLock paddle system

The LeverLock SUP paddle adjustment system (as featured on several Red Paddle Co and Accent SUP paddles) uses no push buttons or external clamps to adjust. The LeverLock system is an internal adjustment system that loosens and tightens a rubber plug at the bottom of the adjustment shaft with the lift or closure of the lever in the paddle handle. This rubber plug also creates a water tight seal against the main shaft to keep water out of your paddle and keep it floating if you drop it in the water. With 16 inches of adjustment, the LeverLock will fit paddlers between 5’2″ – 6’8″ tall. The LeverLock adjustment system makes for a great family sharing system that we are very excited to offer on all of our adult SUP paddles.

A video below runs through the basics of the LeverLock system.

The LeverLock adjustment system is as easy to use as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Lift the lever located on the grip. This loosens the adjustment system and allows the user to adjust the paddle to the desired length.
  2. Use the white line on the adjustment system to line up with the arrow label on the paddle shaft to ensure the grip is alignment with the blade.
  3. Close the lever and you’re ready to go paddling!

If your paddle handle twists a little or moves about, below is a video outlining how to adjust the rubber plug system so that it grips the inner shaft more securely.

Note: Do not over-tighten nut.
