The future of the Outdoor Recreation Industry is said to potentially be in jeopardy. Gear manufacturers have competed so long against each other to get to the peak of the industry, they may have forgotten who drives the industry: the end customer. Great products can be on the cutting edge of technology, but in the end they may isolate the main customers to just focus on the 1% that wants to lead the pack.
SEA-LECT Plastics doesn’t solely focus on the 1%. We design to innovate and provide value to our partners, and for the end customer. SEA-LECT Plastics entered the paddle sports market in 2011 under the SEA-LECT Designs brand. Partnering on an idea from Eddyline Kayaks in 2004, SEA-LECT developed the now patented kayak foot brace. It was new, and it was 100% functional for every customer. The innovative foot brace design started selling right away to kayak manufacturers throughout North America and Europe. In the following years, more products followed every year and SEA-LECT Designs has stayed true to the mission of Engineering Innovations for the Outdoor Enthusiast.
Plastic injection molding has countless applications and can be done at a lower cost than other processes and materials. Our innovative designs start with a 3-D modeling software to reduce cost and produce a product exact to the design specifications. From the concept, revisions, and rapid prototypes, the finalized process and mold design can be completed with a quote ready to move forward in production.
Here are few examples of products we partnered to help deliver:
Foot Braces – The patented kayak foot braces started from a simple idea, and have expanded to a large line-up designed for simplicity and strength. Each are designed to be maintenance free with tremendous strength, and at a price that’s attractive to everyone! With three attachment options and low profile pedal that mounts easily in most boats, this foot brace system is a dream for OEM applications (and it’s a perfect option for anyone looking to replace worn-out foot braces too).
Hatch Covers – Our hatch covers are formed in many styles to accommodate multiple brands of kayaks. We use different materials to best suit the style for maximum durability and lowest cost. The performance versions combine a durable center with an over molded indestructible outer seal. They are designed to be customizable, so customers can promote their own brand.
Rudder – The patented Trucourse™ Rudder allows for smooth and silent deployment of your rudder making it a favorite of kayak fishermen. Designed for strength and performance, this rudder is something any kayaker should want.
Triple Thread Rod Holders – The triple threat rod holder was designed to be your one stop for all your reel styles, whether you Fish spin, Bait cast, or Fly reel. The holder is made for everyone, and is perfect for all conditions whether calm or rough.
