    Works great

    We bought the 145 pound 12’ hoist and modified it to use with 2 kayaks and associated gear. It works as expected, lifts the gear up and down with some effort, and feels solid during use.
    Installation was straightforward, I did it alone in about 4 hours, but did not need to install cleats as the truss outlines are visible in our shop ceiling. I’m happy with this solution, all of the parts are well made. The brake instantly stops the load as the lowering rope is vertical. Nice feature. I did reverse the rope organizer to get the proper length for the raising and lowering rope. This did not affect performance.
    We’ve been contemplating a hoist for getting heavy objects up and down from the shop overhead storage area. There may be another Suspenz in our future!

    Good directions but need tweaking

    Directions good but dont address different ceiling joist spacing. They assume 16 centers. A ranch home may have 24 spaced rafter trusses. A little pricy but should last. Certainly works good. Should state mechanical advantage of pulley system not just lift rating.

    Great design and hardware

    With a little adjustment of the rope & strap lengths, the kayaks are able to be lifted flush to the ceiling. 2 12' kayaks in a single bay garage (storing over the door was the only space available). Using the rope organizer to reverse the direction of the lifting ropes allows the kayaks to be lifted to a 10' ceiling without needing additional ceiling space (rope organizer is 10'6" from the wall).

    Great System

    Took a bit to get it installedhigh ceiling and steel girder across ceiling. Once installed, it is sturdy and strong with a great design. Was able to install it without and boards mounted to the ceiling, just a wood block to allow lines to clear the girder. Wish I had bought it sooner!

    kayak hoist

    A bit tricky with a small 1945 garage, but it works great.
