Native Watercraft Ultimate 12 with a broken skeg retractor cable

The cable that deploys and retracts the skeg on my Native Watercraft Ultimate 12 finally crapped out. There is a reason Native Watercraft does not make this boat with a skeg anymore but I need one when I stand and use a push pole. Does anybody have a solid fix/repair?

    Same problem!! Anyone got any ideas? I was thinking about replacing the inner tube with a security cable...not sure about the best way to attach it to the skeg-rod.

I have a mouse with a retractable cord, but when I go and try to extend the cord, it doesn't lock in place and it shoots back into the mouse. If you could please help fix this it would be appreciated.


the retractor lock is prob broken cannot rely fix them, would just tie a not in cable and it will not go back in then. pull all way out and tie not in cable so its near to the mouse end. its not a fix but it will work the retractor locks don't last on items flimsy plastic. the pins wear out so don't lock.

2008 chevy uplander seat belt wont retract how do i fix it


Please check if your seat belt has "Retractors" or "Automatic Retractor".

Follow these steps to determine if you have a retractor system that will hold car seat securely or your seat belt won't retract as should be:

A. Pull belt all the way out.

b. Allow belt to retract about 6 inches (15 cm).

c. Pull out on belt again.

If belt is locked and you cannot pull the belt out any further, you have an Automatic Locking;

If you pull the belt again all the way out and won't return to normal operation, then the mechanism is damaged, but try first the "retractor" lock to be sure. By Federal Law, nobody will sale a seat belt in a junk yard, try the dealer or order thru the dealer the whole seat belt or the mechanism. I hope that is just a matter of the automatic retractor; you can see this information in your car's manual. Try and we will see.

Air bag code 33 for a 2005 lincoln town car


2005 Towncar SRS Code 33 (3 flash + 3 flash, repeat this set for twice. then Beep 5 times pause x 5 = 25 beeps every 30min).

This means you have problem with left (Driver) side pretentioner (Seat belt retract system).
It doesn't mean physical belt or retract mechanism.It is just bomb wiring which is part of airbag system.
When airbag deploy, passenger must stay tight in seat otherwise body lean to front then slam back to seat by airbag.
if belt is loose or delay to lock, passenger's body rocks back and forth.So, system use small bomb (Fire power) to lock and retract seat belt when airbag deploy.There is small bomb and igniter in part of Seat belt retractor.
Code 33 is warning for this part on 2005 Towncar.(older model is different meaning in Ford/Lincoln, it's possibly passenger side airbag system for earlier model)
Before you work for any part of Airbag system and touch any "Yellow connector", * *Disconnect battery (negative side is good enough) and wait at least 5 min to clear all power in system**.(Airbag store back up power for few minutes to be able to deploy even in case if power disconnected)
by the way, you should move your driver seat most forwarded position before you disconnect battery to make it easy to work with seat belt.
locate driver side seat belt retractor (in center pillar between front and rear door, you may have to fight with weather strip)

Locate Yellow connector on bottom of Seat belt retractor (it's called "Pretensioner")it is located on very bottom of rear side of retractor.
only one yellow connector. (make sure your battery is disconnected)
Check its physical connection or looseness.if connection looks fine, you may have to replace whole seat belt ($180-$200 in Lincoln dealer)
You can check if pretensionor is good or bad by regular tester, but unless you know how, I won't tell (because I don't wan't you to blow out pretentionor).

Tempest 170- Skeg is stuck in the skeg box. The slider used to control the skeg when pulled back to put the skeg down will automatically slide forward to abaout half-way again. What do you think the...


You need a repair kit from wilderness systems.I had the same problem. It happens when something gets stuckbetween the skeg and the skeg box, the first think most of people do is to force the lever and doing so make the cable bent and after that it would never work again.They sent me the repair kit with no charge and now everything is working fine.

Electrolux EL 7001 Oxygen 3 power cord continually retracts


The button has two parts - the inner part (button) and the outer part (surrounds the button). The press the outer part to deactivate (pop out!) the inner part.

It took me a while to figure this thing out, but I was glad the vacuum wasn't broken.
