The two sets of wall cradles I purchased are performing exactly as needed. While the products are working as advertised, there are a few issues I would like to note:
1. The screw holes on the bottom bracket are wider than the typical 2x4 stud in a wall. To resolve that issue, I screwed additional l... Read More

    So far, I am very pleased with the quality and finish of these kayak cradles.

    I've had these a while so I can finally add a review. As far as design, function, and price these can't be beat. My only complaint is that the foam is pretty soft and not durable. The soft parts that come in contact with the boat have started to tear and come away from the tubing.

    I have now installed four of these and with a measuring tape, pencil and power drill, it's child's play.
    I read that some people added extra support but I find that the two massive screws, when placed in a stable 2 x 4, are absolutely adequate.

    I store our three kayaks outside on a wooden partition wall. I've been looking for cradles that would not force me to take a second mortgage to pay for them. I decided to give these a try and so far I'm pleased. They are easy to mount with the supplied screws and they are solid. The only reason I did not give them an additional star is I've only had them up for about three weeks. I'll see how they hold up to weather exposure over the winter etc. The foam on the lower cradle seems to be durable I almost expected pipe insulation for padding but it is more dense than that. I definitely would not hesitate to buy them for inside storage. The three kayaks I store on them range from 65 to 79 lbs. and they feel very secure. We have 2 sit in and a sit on kayak and they work well for both hull types. I've incorporated nylon straps to hold them down in case of heavy winds and I use bicycle locks to secure them. Just thought I'd throw in that last part just in case anyone was considering using them outside like I am.

    Installation is super simple, just screw some long screws into the wall on a stud; need to be a bit careful as the heads are made of soft metal and easily strip out, but fortunately there are extras. Once in the rack is very sturdy and holds my kayak gently. I have a 17'6" wood sea touring kayak and it works nicely, and I imagine any kayak would fit fine.

  • “Is this cradle suitable for a canoe?”
    Asked by Usabrenno from New York on 8/21/2016 4:38:20 PM
    • No, this won't work for a canoe very well as it is too narrow. It's really made for kayaks, although you could obviously use it for a SUP as well.

    • Depending on the height of gunwales on your canoe the opening at the top of the "J" on the wall cradle is fifteen inches. Theres no doubt they are capable of handling the weight of any canoe I've ever been around. Just depends on weather they have a broad enough opening for your canoe. Hope this is of some help

    • These would not work very well for a canoe due to the size.
