Securely holding kayaks as required

Verified Buyer Reviewed by CC from Northern California on Thursday, August 14, 2014
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 lumber to the wall studs to ensure I would have a solid mount for those screws (instead of just going through drywall).
2. The screw heads on the top two screws will mar your boat. I had to add neoprene over the tops to protect my boat.
3. Each bracket is angled outwards in a different direction. There is nothing in the documentation that indicates which side which one should be on.

Other than the above items, the brackets are doing their job; one supporting a 12' Native SOT and the other a 12' Wilderness sit in. Things normally take me longer than other people, but mounting both of them took just under 90 minutes due to the extra support wood I added to the walls.
