This is an mechanical vent, an all-wood recessed grip and a wood leash cup with a 1/4″ stainless-steel retainment pin. The grip is all paulownia and the leash and vent plugs are machined for salvaged old-growth redwood.
The SUP Grip, Leash Plug and Vent Plug accessories setup we offer is a great way to build your hollow wood sup with all wood components (finbox excepted). The grip is machined from a block of paulownia wood, and the vent and leash plugs are machined from salvaged old-growth redwood. The vent is furnished with a threaded brass insert pre-threaded into the wood plug. When you receive your vent plug and threaded brass insert, you will remove the threaded insert and reinstall it into the wood plug with thickened epoxy. The stainless steel leash pin is delivered loose so that you can finish the inside of the leash plug before you set the pin with epoxy and install the wood plug into your board. Internal blocking should be installed in your board in the proper location prior to completing the strip-planked skin.
The paulownia grip is sent to you without finish. The grip installs at the fore and aft balance point against the stringer and is glued to the underside of the deck before all of the strips are installed.
