Kayak cover with zipper

– aids people with disabilities and impaired hand function

Description
Cover with zipper, known as a ‘marathon cover’, which is attached to the kayak when getting in and out of the kayak. The tab of the zipper is modified with an easy-grip loop made of string.

Authors comments
The user does not have adequate hand strength to attach an ordinary cover to the kayak. This cover is attached to the kayak and all she has to do is climb in and pull up the zipper.
Another advantage is that the user can easily access food or beverage stored in the cockpit.
