The Spring Creek Universal Receiver is the most universal Canoe and Kayak accessory on the market. It’s an anodized aluminum double tube that spans the width of your canoe and clamps to your gunwales. There is no drilling necessary and it attaches simply in seconds. Multiple options can be used with only one UR unit. For instance, stabilizer floats can be snapped in for safety. The rowing arms snap in for solo use or better control. When portaging and you need wheels, slip the portage wheels into the Universal Receiver and stroll your canoe down the trail. Would adding one of these options make your canoe more versatile? Would certain combinations add to your canoeing pleasure? We find the more uses our canoes have, the more time we can spend enjoying the outdoors.

The Universal Receiver is made in different lengths to fit all canoes and kayaks. Standard sizes are 30″, 36″, 40″ and 45″. To size your canoe for a UR, first, measure your canoe at it’s widest point. Measuring the widest point gives you the option to place the UR anywhere on your canoe that is comfortable. Most canoe gunwales have inside lips for clamping, meaning your clamps will be on the inside of the canoe. However, some canoe gunwales have outside lips, and in this case your clamps will clamp to the outside of your canoe. If this is your circumstance, please go up one UR size when ordering.

It’s so easy that even you will be out on the water in minutes!

    The Universal Receiver is a necessity for many products, but fortunately, you only need to buy one since it’s so easy to transfer from canoe to canoe (or kayak if that’s what you have.)

    Super product. The Universal Receiver is the glue to my setup. I use it with my floats and portage wheels. The convenience of use is the best I’ve seen. The cool part is I can transfer the receiver from one canoe to another.
