Our Westland bimini tops give you the option to replace your bimini’s rear hold down straps with rear struts, also known as a brace kit. The purpose of a brace kit is to keep your bimini top picked up at an angle when it isn’t being used. Each brace kit consists of two 7/8” pieces of tubing which are 46” in height. Also included are deck mounts and all required mounting hardware. Braces are available in aluminum with either stainless steel or nylon fittings.
