Rated 3 out of 5 by Overwatch308 Bring your own hardware I purchased this hoist system for storing a canoe under the ceiling of our garage. The installation is not difficult, but be sure to carefully plan, measure, and mark the location of each hoist. I highly recommend using higher quality lag screws than the ones provided in the kit. During installation I sheared 2 of 4 in the exact same location using only a socket driver - not even a long handled socket wrench. A 50% failure rate should not be ignored. I also added a fender washer between the lag screws and the hoist frame for better load distribution. The straps provided didn't work for me because the short loop positions didn't reach around the boat and the longer loop positions used up too much height above the boat. I wrapped a common ratchet strap around the boat at both the front and rear seat positions and then connected the hooks to them. Look at the picture to see how much height there is between the bottom of the kayak and the hoist connection point - and then imagine walking under it. Do you have ceilings that high? Last point - my canoe weighs about 80 lbs with paddles, life jackets, etc. in it. Hoisting this much weight works best if you are pulling straight down - which gets harder the closer to the ceiling you get the boat. Make sure you have room to pull down on the cords in your installation. Despite all of the above, this kit works pretty well for the purpose. I would have given it 4 stars except for the hardware issue. August 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuck Worked Great! I bought two sets of these for the two kayaks I just purchased. I have a small one car garage with high exposed ceilings. I had to get creative in how I was going to attach them, since I do not have rafters that run parallel to the floor (they angle up toward the center). Long story short, I was able to get them securely attached and they worked great to hoist up the 54lb kayaks. I heard some talk about needing to put a separate rope on the locking mechanism, I did not need to. I also heard some talk about needing to tie a rope between the two straps to make sure they did not spread out when holding the kayak, I did need to do this. All in all a great product that was relatively easy to install and very easy to operate. August 18, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by soloz Reasonably priced hoist This hoist works as intended and I would have given it 5 stars except for a couple issues. 1. It is intended to attach to your joists, but there is no way to securely hang the pulleys if you need to run the hoist the opposite way without extra work. I attached an extra 2x4 and plywood to my joists so I could hang the pulleys. This could have been easily solved if there were two settings for the hangers/pulleys 2. They hoist items up and hold them securely, however they will not release the brake unless you climb up with a ladder and manually pull the brake down. I solved this by attaching a length of paracord to the brake. I purchased 2 hoists so I could store both my kayaks in my shed They work well enough other than the two issues I listed, but after some simple modifications they are just fine and are strong enough to hoist my yaks to the ceiling with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GAkayakGuy Works great I read the reviews of several hoists and selected this based on feedback and price. It was easy to install and I had it mounted and the kayak attached in about 30 minutes. The instructions were clear and easy to follow, especially when it came to threading the rope though the pulleys. Two things that helped me, based on other user feedback and not in the instructions: 1. measure your kayak where you want the straps to go around; use this measurement to mark the distance between the pulleys on the ceiling. 2. Add an extra strap under the kayak to hold the two straps provided (making an "H" shape) from sliding. This made the kayak much more stable when lifting. May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Yaker My 4th hoist This is my 4th of these hoists. I have 2 single sit in kayaks (40-50 lb. each), 1 tandem SOT (about 75 lb.), and a canoe (about 80 lb.). They keep the boats high enough to not have to duck. The brake holds the entire weight and the tie off is just for a backup. I have put the 2 singles stacked on top of each other in 1 hoist, but it is not very convenient, which is why I purchased a 4th. This is a great product, not difficult to hang, and easy to take the boats in and out of. May 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chuck64 Price was right for this product. I have not had a chance to install this product, but from all indications it will be easy to install. I am looking for to having my kayak off the ground and out of the way especially when I do not use it during the winter months. If this hoist works out okay I will purchase another one for the other kayak. May 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Happy2014 This product was a good buy It was easy to assemble and a good price. The only thing that was a problem was the height. It is not quite as high as we would like it. Also make sure your rafters (it this is what you have in your garage) are running the right way if you plan on dropping your kayak on your roof top. April 29, 2014
