Rated 5 out of 5 by Lil' Mermaid Really nice product.. got 2!
We used these for our kayaks and actually have 2 kayaks on each hoist and they are great! With our low ceilings I was worried we would have to duck under but they actually are high enough to just allow us to walk comfortably under them. Really nice and stay steady when even a short girl like me lowers them. Easy easy to install and very sturdy parts. I was very pleased with this and the price at Dick's was far lower than anywhere else on the net!

Rated 3 out of 5 by canoe+14 Not strong enough
Canoe weighs 98lbs. Hoist limit 100lbs. Had to order a stronger hoist.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mike Well designed and sturdy
This product is well made and generally well designed. Installation was not difficult, although requires one to be slightly handy. My only complaint is that the pulley device is designed such that you cannot raise a kayak very high ( unless you have an unusually high ceiling). I would recommend the product, but check the physical specs and be sure that it will work for you. The price creates a great value.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trek Works great
Very good quality, totally up to the task of lifting a 14' Kyack, easily installers with simple instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SteveInSTL Decent product
I bought this hoist for a kayak, it works well. Installation was as easy as expected, bolted into ceiling joists through drywall. I found the screws included in the kit to be adequate for the job, plenty long enough to get a good bite into the studs. The rope lock does make lowering the kayak a bit tricky, and I really wish it were possible to have both pullys move at the same time instead of hoist, level the load, hoist, level the load, etc. I will likely buy this hoist again when we add more kayaks or canoes to the fleet. My garage has 13 foot ceilings and there is ample rope raise and lower without having to stretch to reach it. I feel it is priced well, and have reccommended it to a friend who also has kayaks and canoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Racecarbob Very nice design
The brackets and pulleys and other hardware are heavy duty enough for the job. I was afraid they would be light and fragile for the price. Installation was easy and I pulled my 16 foot 58lb boat up just like that. I mounted the pulleys on a 2x4 rail 14 feet from the floor, and there was not enough rope to do that and mount the pulleys 6 feet apart for my long boat. I had to add a strap between the hooks to keep the slings from scooting off the ends. It would be nice if a strap was included to do this. I'm on the site right now to order a second unit for my little sailboat.
