Works perfectly for my kayak! Makes my life much easier.
I was looking for a storage solution which would get my kayak off the floor and make it easier to load on the roof of my Jeep - this did the trick. While the directions had a minor glitch in drilling hole sizes, the product is excellent. It was straightforward to install and easy to operate with one person. I would highly recommend this product.
I received the kit yesterday and installed today. My Kayak fits perfect in it and the kit was very easy to install
Product is well built, great installation instructions, and easy to install
Needed to get our Kayak out off the shed and in a more convenient location. Now it's above the truck bed and can be easily lowered.
We just installed two of these in our garage to store our kayaks. They are fairly easy to install. Make sure you use long lag bolts in the 2x4 for strong support. The pulley system does a great job of hoisting up and down the kayaks. We can now lower the kayaks into the back of our truck and off we go.
Easy to use and well made product that does the job, and comes with all the hardware. Shipping was exceptionally fast. My only complaint are the instructions for roping the pulleys is impossible to follow, and the diagrams are useless. However, there's a great YouTube video that makes it quick and simple, and is easy to find. Very quick and easy install once you've seen the video. Five stars for the product.
An excellent product and exactly what I was looking for to solve my storage needs, and at a reasonable price. Thank you so very much. Simple installation, as well.
I agree with Jeremy. The diagram for routing the rope through the braking mechanism could use some refining. Instructions also indicated that there was enough rope included to space the pulleys _____ apart. Oops! Minor glitches for an otherwise wonderful product. Ease of installation and ease of use as advertised. Very good quality at a good price.
It's pretty good. Saves a lot of space in my garage so now my mom can put her car in the garage too! Thanks Discount Ramps!
I purchased my first ceiling mount lift several months ago for my kayak. The lift work perfectly. Since that time I purchased a Jeep with a hardtop. I used two of the ceiling mount lifts to raise the hardtop off the Jeep. I had to make some modifications to the straps but it works better than any of the other ceiling lifts designed for this purpose. After showing my neighbor how I lifted my kayak and Jeep hardtop, they purchased the unit for himself. Great product for the price.
Easy to install, works as described. This is easy for one person to operate. I received the product before I was even ready to install it. The shipping is fast and reasonably priced. This company is great to work with and I will purchase from them again. I will be ordering another one in the near future.
We recently moved into a townhouse with a very high-ceilinged garage, and no outdoor storage option for my 16 ft Old Town canoe. Internet searching found this hoist. It arrived promptly, and, enlisting my brother with his 10 foot stepladder, we mounted the brackets on a 10 foot 2x4 which we lag screwed to the ceiling joists. Threading the pulleys was a breeze, though if I had one quibble, a more close-up and detailed illustration of the braking mechanism would be nice.
My son bought a 16 ft canoe and wanted to store it in my 3 car garage for the winter. Since the floors and the walls were already full your easy to install canoe storage hoist made use of untapped ceiling space. The instructions were straight forward and easy to understand. I would recommend this hoist to anyone looking to make the most of their storage space.
I read many reviews on how to store kayaks to prevent damage and this product offers that option. Wall racks take up valuable space while this item allows storage above vehicle in garage. Definitely recommend this item.
