Rated 4 out of 5 by TitanicCaptain A Good, Space-Saving Solution for Kayak/Canoe Storage My wife and I bought two kayaks recently, without considering how we might store them. When you read dimensions as 10 feet (3 meters) long, you may not realize just how big that really is in a typical garage. We didn't want to just lean the boats against the house or put them on saw horses, so we bought the CargoLoc Garage Hoists. In short, they work pretty well, but there are some things you should consider, especially if you're not too handy. *First, the installation instructions could be better. I figured it all out, but it took some thinking. The drawings are quite good, which helped, but the written instructions are a bit hard to follow. In one instruction, it tells you to make a loop of the rope. Now, to most people, this makes you think that the loop will somehow be looped over a pulley. Not true. It's the two-rope combo that you pull on to raise the kayaks. The instructions are clear, however, about making sure you bolt the pulley assemblies to a joist. Absolutely do that, or you will likely have a serious accident. Just bolting to sheet rock on the ceiling will NOT be strong enough. *Second, the straps that go around the kayaks have several loops in them that have no explanation. I wasn't sure if paddles were supposed to be somehow secured there, or something else. It turns out, they are sizing loops so the straps can be used with different width boats. *Third, the straps have a tendency to slip toward the pointy ends of the boats as you lift. Not a big deal, EXCEPT if the ropes the kayak hangs on get angled too much from perfect vertical, it affects the locking mechanisms, and once you have the boats lifted you may have a lot of trouble getting the rope locking mechanisms to release when you want to lower the boats. This can be solved by buying some strapping to strap the hanging straps together at perfect vertical, or by climbing a ladder to release the locking mechanisms with your fingers as someone else holds the rope to lower the boat. *Fourth, this is probably pretty obvious to most, but FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS. It is really important that the pulley mechanisms be installed in the correct directions, and that the ropes are routed through the pulleys properly. I made a few mistakes and it took me some time, squinting at the drawings, to figure out what I'd done wrong. *But overall, I'd give this product 4 stars. It works pretty well, and once the boats are lifted to the rafters, they stay there. The parts are well-made, and the design makes sense. If the hoist is installed correctly, the cleats to tie the excess rope to do not have to hold any weight. October 27, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by gaffer CargoLoc Garage Hoist Installation was easy, but because I have a finished ceiling I loose out on a few inches of height/clearance, not the biggest deal but they should make a flush mount kit. The straps the supply could also be adjustable. This does make winter storage easy. I added my own extra safety straps for long term storage. October 4, 2016

Rated 5 out of 5 by AvoidingGarageFalls Hoist works as advestised Was able to install the hoist in garage once I located the beam. Hardest part was working lag bolt up into beam. Threading line was done without the online help videos, while I admit the instruction guide was not overly clear. Adjusted strap so that kayak was as close to ceiling as possible. Bottom of Kayak clears 6'5". So I will be able to get car under it. September 22, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Rivrat Good Product Easy to install, (installed two) works as expected except I did use another strap under one of my kayaks to hold the two hanging straps from slipping which makes getting up the 12 feet or so in my garage much easier. A Learning I will use on the other one next time I lift it up September 12, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by ResQU Nice Kit Although the hardware in this kit can be purchased cheaper from most home improvement stores, having it all in one kit is a big convenience. The only thing I had issue with was that as is, the system left my kayak a little lower than I wanted. I was able to modify the ceiling mounts (finished garage) and shorten the hooks to gain about 8 inches more. September 11, 2016
