The PKS Self Launch Tool: We would like to introduce you to another innovative product that most everyone can use! This little tool is what every kiteboarder needs in their arsenal. For those days when everyone else is working and you find yourself alone at your favorite kite spot and no one to launch or land your kite. Now you're no longer limited to needing someone to launch or land your kite.

It's simple with the PKS Self Launch Tool. Just attach the larkshead webbing to any secure fence, post or, truck hitch. Clip the extra large heavy-duty carabineer to your chicken loop and walk your kite to the side of the wind window. Now launch your kite, set it on the edge of the wind window, and walk back to your bar. Attach your safety leash to the chicken loop and then secure the chicken loop to your harness by holding onto the chicken loop not the bar. Do not hold the bar while you transfer the chickenloop to your harness!!!! Once the chicken loop is securely attached to your harness unhook the carabineer from the chicken loop and fly your kite to the 12 O’clock position. Go Kite!!!!

A must have

John Leete - 10/31/2011

When you get stuck landing on a narrow beach without assist, it sure is handy to be able to hook your chicken loop onto a post or tree and do an orderly landing without twisted lines. Sure, you can make one your self, but this little tool is nicely done.

Great Question

Jeff let me try one out at Wildcat and it is so easy to use. Works way eaiser than my old jerry rigged setup. It saves time clipping the chicken loop in and out so you minimize the risk of a out of control kite. Left my first one at the beach and liked it so much I bought another.

Easy to Use
