Fenn 4 split paddle cam lever issue

6 years 9 months ago #24784 by peteski
Hi all. I recently purchased a Fenn 4 split paddle, which I'm really enjoying apart from 1 issue.

The cam lever for locking the two paddle halves together works its way loose while paddling.

I've used the paddle 3 or 4 times now and every time it lets me down.

I thought about making a neoprene sleeve to slip over the lever, but that can have complications too, I guess.

Any advice appreciated...

Thought I would leave some feedback here in case anyone else has the same issue with their new Fenn paddle...

Turns out the problem was that the lever wasn't set up correctly and as a result, there wasn't enough friction created when tightening the lever to hold it (or the paddle) in place. I found this out the hard way on a rather hectic paddle after work yesterday.

To set the lever up correctly, there are two small screws on either side of the adjusting screw that hold the adjusting screw in place, that need to be loosened. Once loose, the adjusting screw can be tightened to give the correct friction, then the two retaining screws tightened again.
