Are there locking straps for kayaks?

Hi, I recently bought my first kayak and am working to ensure I have the right strap setup etc.  Is there a great lock system that I should purchase?  I have the Thule J hook rack and a 10 ft pelican kayak but would like to have a locking system for longer trips. Any recommendations?

@Jaclyn Thanks for reaching out!

In addition to lock cores to secure your Thule rack to your vehicle, we recommend investing in some Thule Locking Straps. Not only do they lock in place, but they also have a steel cable inside them so it is harder to cut through the strap.

Hopefully this helps!

Thank you John, this was helpful!
