How To Install/Remove FCS II fins

For fins to easily install and remove from the surfboard without using any tools, a FCS II detachable fin system is the latest system to hit the market and is currently the only one of it's kind that offers this tool-less clip in and out mechanism. This helps you to swap between fins effortlessly and fast, it's also one less thing to worry about when hitting the waves by removing the need to have screws for your fins. Here are the steps on how to properly install and remove FCS II fins:

  • To install, start with the front and attach carefully to the plug to lock the fin. The 'click' sound will tell if the fin is already secure.
  • To remove, hold the fin and board thoroughly and pull from the back of the fin. A nice little tip the staff at Yakwax have discovered is to hit the tip with a shoe to unclip it from your board as they can sometimes be secured very tightly.
