Knee/Thigh straps

I need some info on using knee/thigh straps. I have a Tarpon 120 SOT w/ straps. When I use the straps, I’m unable to place my feet straight on my foot braces - the straps move my knees outward, which forces my heels inward & toes outward. This position for my feet is uncomfortable, and it interferes with my foot motion while paddling. Any suggestions?

Thanks -

1. Don’t use them


2. Adjust the straps so they are there when you need them and no pressure when you don’t
