Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kayak Rack I 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Functions well enough, but some annoying flaws I have two of these. They work well enough. But... 1. As others have written, the screws that come with this product are worthless. They are cheap and the heads strip easily. Save yourself some time and go to the hardware store for new screws before you being installation. 2. It is important to attach this at the studs, right? There are four screw holes, but only two of the four line up vertically to attach to the studs. Has anyone at Seattle Sports used this product? Would I recommend it? Sadly, there aren't many other options. It works, despite its shoddy-ness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the Job Done I 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy hooks I 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Install easily and work well. Purchased on sale. Really nice for the price. Installed easily, however I did enhance the system by first installing an 8 ft. long 2 x 4 at top and bottom height. These were screwed into the studs at each point where a stud existed. This gives a very stable base on which to attach the cradles. (I purchased 2 sets of cradles as I was hanging 2 separate kayaks, one above the other.) Used my own extra long "decking" screws to attach and these babies aren't going anywhere. For those who like overkill (like me), I then installed a large "J" hook at the top of the wall & the bottom of the wall (approximately equal distance from the ends of the kayaks). From these hooks I've strung a heavy duty moving strap with ratchet, and simply cinch the strap up tight against the outside of the kayaks, to insure they would never fall out of the cradle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good price, strong and secure These work fine for my 13' kayaks, and I think the padding and the plastic cap on the end are sufficient protection. I don't need straps to secure the kayaks, they rest just fine on the rack, and the position is somewhat adjustable. There are four screw mounting holes, and I bought screws from the hardware store as others have advised, although the screws that came with it *looked* ok. You can probably secure them just fine with the two upper screws (which go through the rack itself), and may or may not be able to hit a wall stud if you try to use the two lower screw holes as well. I used 2-1/4" screws for the top holes, 1-1/2" screws for the bottom holes, and they feel very secure.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good choice... This was a good choice for hanging my kayak in the garage. Well made, sturdy, can be used indoors or on an exterior wall. The only thing that could be improved upon would be slightly thicker padding, but I just wrapped a small piece of spare closed cell foam around the contact points and it's more than adequate. A good buy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these hooks I'm about to buy my 3rd pair of these. I installed them around the side of my house, where the kayaks are protected by the eves. I then wrap the kayaks in tarps. I would suggest tossing out the screws that come with them and use some #8 three inch deck screws. Also, it wouldn't hurt to wrap the foam padding with mill wrap plastic tape.

I live in Florida and have a 6ft block wall which supports my pool and pool deck, would this type of wall be sufficient to support these brackets for two sit on tops?

will this hold the ocean kayak tandem?

Asked by: na_na178
The Seattle Sports Kayak Wall Cradles have a weight capacity of 100 pounds per pair and the Ocean Kayak Tandem is only 68 pounds, so you should not have a problem storing the boat with those cradles.

I have a Hobie outback. Would the cradle fit and will they support the weight?

Asked by: Kitkat
A Hobie Mirage Outback Kayak fully rigged weighs 99 lbs. which is under the weight limit for these wall cradles (200 lbs.) when properly installed.
