5 Stars Canoe-Kayak Ceiling Mount Lift for Storage

Patricia from CA wrote (November 17, 2015):

Product is easy to install, easy to set up, and easy to hang Kayak. You can't beat the price from the bigger stores and quality is amazing.

5 Stars 2 pack of kayak hoists

Mike Irish from NY wrote (September 30, 2015):

Very reasonably priced product, clear installation instructions, shipped very quickly and product of a high quality and ease of use. I would recommend positively to anyone with this need.

4 Stars Excellent Hoist

Joe from CO wrote (September 06, 2015):

Th hoist was easy to install despite the lack of detailed instructions on how to feed the ropes. The straps where longer than I expected but I found a way to lift the kayak close to the ceiling anyway. It does a great job of lifting the kayak and holds it securely up in the air.

5 Stars Just raised my kayak

Wayne from DE wrote (August 07, 2015):

Directions could use more details on installing the rope! Thank you to the people who go to the trouble of putting it on youtube. It really was a god send for us. Once the stringing of the rope was accomplished the rest was a piece of cake. I am 69 years old and I had no problem installing to a 12" ceiling or raising or lowering the kayak ( weighs 55 lbs and I had life jackets, paddle, seat and cart attached to test weight limit. All went well and I just ordered a second one.

4 Stars Great product

Wayne from DE wrote (August 07, 2015):

We are new to kayaking, but we knew we needed a good way to store our brand new kayaks in our small garage. This hoist system is great. The only reason I didn't give the product 5 stars is the poor instructional pamphlet. The instructions are available on YouTube, however; a video makes it easy to figure our.

Greg from CO wrote (June 02, 2015):

Works perfectly for my kayak! Makes my life much easier.

4 Stars Good Storage Solution

Fred Abt from ID wrote (June 01, 2015):

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.

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.

5 Stars Kayak hoist

New kayakers from CA wrote (April 13, 2015):

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.

5 Stars Kayak hoist

jon from FL wrote (March 25, 2015):

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.

Greg from WA wrote (February 14, 2015):

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.

5 Stars As advertised. Great product.

Jeffrey from OR wrote (February 09, 2015):

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.

4 Stars A very good kayak hoist

Reagan from LA wrote (January 31, 2015):

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!

5 Stars More uses than just for Canoe and Kayak

Ray from FL wrote (December 03, 2014):

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.

5 Stars Solidly built, well engineered

Jeremy from NY wrote (November 24, 2014):

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.

5 Stars Using every inch of my garage!

Murray Hanson from MN wrote (November 02, 2014):

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.

5 Stars Perfect for storing kayak properly

Cris from NY wrote (October 10, 2014):

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.
