The simple, safe, and secure storage of kayaks and canoes has been a difficult task... until now.  Our Canoe and Kayak Hanger Kit includes everything required to store one kayak or canoe in the basement, garage, shed, or boathouse.  The separate purchase of our Hull Cradle system is recommended for use with our Canoe & Kayak Hoist for the storage of most kayaks and some canoes that may be prone to warpage if hung from their ends without additional support. Additional kits can be purchased to provide stacking storage of multiple kayaks and canoes to save valuable floor space.

Unlike rope, cable, and cleat storage products, our canoe and kayak hoist product cannot be accidentally released and the straps do not easily tangle, wear, or break like competing canoe or kayak rope lift products.  The release button and release cord move with the canoe or kayak, staying out of the reach of children while providing controllable height adjustment for adults.   This also provides the ability to guide kayaks or canoes down to the ground slowly and easily, while providing single person operation from each end of the canoe or kayak. 

Simple product installation requires two drilled holes...

Our canoe and kayak hoist and storage system installs directly into rafters or joists and does not require the additional installation of  2" x 4"  lumber for mounting (though some may prefer to install it this way for an easy and secure installation onto a finished ceiling). 

To install, simply install the aluminum pulley blocks using the two included lag eye screws into any suitable joist, stud, rafter, or dock post. Then connect the other end to the lanyards or rings on a kayak or canoe or to our Canoe & Kayak Hull Cradle (sold separately) and raise or lower the kayak or canoe using the mechanical advantage of the hoist strap assemblies.  No separate cleat or complicated pulley tracking installation is required, making it the easiest lifting system for kayaks and canoes available... In fact, we guarantee it to be easier to install and more secure than all other kayak and canoe lifts on the market!  This integrated leverage system acts like a block and tackle lifting device making it simple for anyone to lift even the heaviest kayaks and canoes. 

The included canoe and kayak hoist strap assemblies are designed to lift and store all canoes and kayaks up to 150 lbs. Actual lifting strength may vary by quality and location of installation.

The included lag screws are designed for direct installation onto a suitable joist or beam or onto a finished ceiling with a maximum drywall, plaster, or stucco thickness of 1/2". When installing through thicker finished ceilings we recommend purchasing longer lag screws at a local hardware store. It is important to make sure that the framing or structure that the hoists straps are installed onto are capable of supporting the full weight of the stored canoe or kayak. Please contact us with any questions about the safest use and installation of this product.

The Handy-Hooker™ Canoe and Kayak Hoist & Storage Kit features our standard limited lifetime guarantee against manufacturing defects discovered during normal use.  If any component fails during normal use we will repair or replace it! (differential upgrade pricing may apply for replacement of older versions) Please contact us for full warranty details.

NOTE: To ensure best performance and longest strap life, the straps should be operated in line with the canoe or kayak as is the case with any rope hoist or chain hoist. Our pulley blocks have machined surfaces that may contain sharp edges. Always wear protective eye and hand gear when installing this product.

NOTE ABOUT EXTENDED LENGTH VERSIONS:
Our standard hoist length is optimized for ceilings up to 10 feet tall. When ordering custom lengths for tall ceilings, please note that the connection point on the canoe or kayak is typically around 1' above ground. If using this product with our Hull Cradle System, the cradle straps add several more inches of stretch to the system during normal use. Therefore, there is no advantage to ordering more length than needed for your ceiling height.
