We have a small boat with minimal room inside and this product has been awesome. Very easy to use and has enabled us to tie down the tube without any worries creating comfort inside the boat for riding when not in use. Not sure what we would have used without this product.

This is the right idea, but a bad design. Hooks up easy and seems to work, but it eventually breaks. The ends of the bungee cable are connected to clips with compression fittings - bad idea. What happens when a bungee stretches? It gets thinner, and the compression fitting come loose. We lost our tube one day after hitting a boat wake. I fixed the TubeKeeper, but a couple weeks later we lost the tube again on rough water and didn't know it. Spent a hour looking for the tube. And we lost a few parts of the TubeKeeper. Not that it matters, we wouldn't have used it again anyway. Maybe there's another product out there with a better design. Don't buy this one if you want to keep your tube.

      Hooks to boat cleats with ease. Strong hold, even for some of our heaviest tubes. Make sure to pull them tight and you won't have to worry about your tube going anywhere.

          I can tell you that I bought this set of Tubekeepers not expecting much. They are great. They have held strong even as we zip all over the lake at full speed. We have only had them for a couple weeks now and they have done what they said they would do. I was not sure the suction cups were going to be able to hold that strong. We love them.

              The Tubekeeper does what it is designed to do very well. It's much easier than using dock lines to secure a big tube to the back of the boat.

              While I tried it with the suction cups, I decided I didn't trust them well enough and elected to use docking cleats instead.

              Highly recommended.

              Comments about Airhead The Tubekeeper, set of 2:

              This product gives you your boat back. Before, if you brought the tube, it was either in the water or a tremendous obstruction in the boat. Now, it hangs off the back (sort of) and everyone can move around the boat, and see the skier/boarder, etc. The only issue I had was that once you take off the tube, make sure to stow the cables at the same time. The rubber suction plates will not stay on the boat without the weight as pressure. I lost one that way and had to buy another set. Totally my fault.

                  I guess that it could, you just need to make sure you have somewhere to anchor the webbing for the tubekeeper.

                  Yes, if there is a platform or aplace onboard for the tube, the tubekeepers can be used.

                  only if you have enough room in front of the motor for the tube. but they could hold it down anywhere on the boat.

                  Lori:

                  I am very sorry to let you know that we do not have replacement parts for the Tube Keeper. The item is assembled overseas and comes into our facility as one complete unit. You "might" be able to utilize a "D" ring that you can get from Home Depot and clamping the bungee around it to secure. Or unfortuntely, it might be easier to purchase a new set, sorry about that.

                  Hope you have a great boating season and thanks for your support of Airhead!
