The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Rated4out of5byTouringWithAKayakfromGets the Job DoneI purchased this two weeks ago. I wanted to store one of my kayaks up off a cumbersome floor rack. It does get the job done but not without some concerns. The kayak that rests in the rack is a Wilderness Tsunami 120. After following the directions for installation I found that the kayak leaned forward onto the front part or tip of the J bracket. This does concern me because of possible hull deformation . Only time will tell, but thus far there is no sign of deformation yet. Otherwise installation is a breeze, just remember to mount it onto wall studs. It holds the weight of the kayak easily. The padding is good, but could be beefier. Overall its a good utilitarian rack.

Rated4out of5bystuart11fromDo the jobAfter originally receiving a product that had been used and missing parts, REI sent a new product with Free Shipping to replace.
A bit disappointed that REI sent a used product and I had to convince them to sent a unused product. Pretty poor customer service, but they finally responded in a positive manner.

Rated4out of5bycampnutfrombetter then they lookNeeded something to hang my kayaks in my garage. Found these at the store while looking around for some other gadgets and I said wow these look like they will work but they look kind of weak. I purchased them and went home to get to work. To my surprise they were very easy to install and much stronger then they look. Mounted a Ride 135 and a Tarpon 120 no problem.

Rated4out of5byRim2RimfromGreat cradles - bad screwsI have 3 of these racks for Emotion Comet 8 and Glide Sport 9 kayaks and a 9 foot Old Town Huron XT. The Emotions fit flat against the wall in these racks. The OT Huron rocks in it a little because of its shape, but is still very stable and won't fall out. The supplied screws are horrible. They easily strip out. Buy your own screws and you will have a solid, easy to use rack. They solved my storage problem.

Rated4out of5byIdaho doghikerfromSturdy hooksI was worried when I opened the shipping package because the box said the dimensions were 13 x 25 and the REI site said 14 x 24. I am using the hooks to hang a 11' 6" sit on top and a 13' 4" tandem sit on top that are deep. Luckily the kayaks still fit the smaller size. The bolts easily stripped, should have followed others advice on reviews and bought better bolts to start with but wanted to get it hung. Easy to install and sturdy once on the wall.

Rated5out of5byBillie from the HillsfromKayak RackI installed two sets of the Seattle Sports Kayak Wall Cradles on the back wall of my shop building. They are very sturdy, easy to install and perfectly hold my two Wilderness Systems lake kayaks. I expect these kayak racks to provide safe storage for my kayaks for years to come. The only negative is that the mounting screws, that were provided, stripped easily. I simply used stronger wood screws for the installation.

Rated4out of5byclarkfrancisfromOceanKayak Malibu 2 XLThe cradle is not large enough to fit around the rear portion of the Kayak because of the built in keel. I used the bracket for the front and hung the rear portion with a strap from the ceiling. Not ideal, but it works ok.
