Towable Tubes – How Do You Hook Them Up

So you have done your homework. You studied all of the ski tubes and finally made your purchase. Excitement is in the air. You can not wait to get on the water with your new toy. Once it arrives, you realize that you have no idea of how to hook this inflatable water toy to your boat. It will leave you scratching your head.

The first thing you are going to need is a tow harness. One end has two hooks that hook easily to your boat transom. The other end has some weird looking plastic piece with a hole in it. I know, it took me a bit to figure this one out and here is what you need to do.

The end of your tow rope should have a closed loop. That closed loop goes through the hole on the tow harness connector. It can be difficult to get this through but do not give up. It will go through.

Once you have it through, you need to take the other end of your tow rope and feed it through that very same loop. Not the hole in the connector but the loop in the tow rope.

Once you have done this, you need to pull the rope tight and it will tighten around itself. This will form a strong sturdy connection.

Now repeat the same process for the ski tube hookup. Once you have tightened the loop around the ski tube connector, you are ready to attach the two metal clips from the tow harness to the boat’s transom!

You are now ready to ride!
