So easy!

So glad we purchased these kayak lifts. Our yaks weigh around 70lbs a piece, we just lower on the truck or trailer & off we go. Great sturdy product.

2nd purchase and the new version is even better...

Purchased a ceiling host years ago for up north and love it so I knew when I purchased a yak down south, I needed the same hoist. The rope is better in the new version and I love the yellow ball to make hoisting just a little bit easier. Great product!

Two suspended kayaks

The Suspenz system works beautifully. The installation instructions were well detailed and easy to follow. It is nice to have a storage area for the kayaks at home, in the garage and out of the way, when they are not in use. As you can see from the photo, because of the shape of the bottom of these kayaks, I tied the remaining strap lengths in a cross fashion to better stabilize them.

Excellent product; instructions partly confusing

Bought the 60 lb, 10 ft ceiling version for storing a lightweight 16 ft canoe. I needed to create a modified installation to suspend the canoe at a bit of an angle below the garage door because the garage bay is quite short. Some of the instruction book sequence was odd (confusingly repeated some parts), but was able to figure it out. All in all, it works great.

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!
