    somehow we never bought foot braces - I guess I didn't think they were really needed - but they are! That's what allows paddler to "brace" in the kajak and makes it more stable and controllable. For some reason I remember the price from CLC being very expensive - that's was a part of decision not to go that way.
    Last night got a pair from eBay for $20.10 - no mounting hardware.......went to CLC web site to check the price for their product - $26.50 with the hardware........not that much difference - not sure why I remember braces being expensive....
    Here is the eBay set from Attwood Marine - I may go with CLC set for my kayak.

    they have 1/8 diameter pegs epoxied in the decks, seems pretty strong bond, strong enough to lift the kayak, the holes strengthened by brass rings - 1/2" and 21/32" diameter
