Luckily, if you are one of these customers, there’s a couple of lanyard solutions to solve all your violent capsizing woes (besides purchasing an entirely new product.)

Alternatively, you can purchase a glue-on leash attachment from the following store.
When you make the order, make sure you choose “Glue-On” from the “Leash Attachments” drop-down menu and not “Super Plug”.
