A great way to rig your Back-band

For everyone who has had trouble keeping their back band up high, here is an awesome way to rig it.

- Use 3/8 shock cord

- Rig as shown below

- Use a square knot than pull the knot through so it is behind the 2 holes, leaving a nice finish.

If you have a Jackson boat the holes are already there for draining water.

I've got the same problem for sure, just confused on the solution. How does that keep the back band up high? It seems like the shock cord will let the band fall back down looking at that photo. Not being critical at all, just confused.

By either drilling two holes on the cockpit rim or using Jackson's existing drain holes, you are lifting the contact point from below the cockpit rim to above the cockpit rim. By using the shock cord and weaving it through the holes and the backband, twice back and forth, with one piece of shock cord, the backband will be nice and high and stable in its position.
