Product Description

The Freestanding 2-Boat Kayak Rack is part of Suspenz's premium line of freestanding kayak racks. This particular kayak rack is a complete kit that comes ready to store 2 kayaks in Suspenz's Deluxe series of kayak suspension racks. To reiterate, this is a cost-saving bundled package of Suspenz's freestanding frame and the Deluxe series of racks. Please read below to learn more about the great features of Suspenz's freestanding racks as well as the Deluxe cradle in particular.

Suspenz Freestanding Storage Solutions
Modular, expandable, and high quality are the best way to describe Suspenz's line of premium freestanding storage racks. The freestanding racks consist of 2 basic components: a freestanding frame (U-shaped base support and a vertical support post) and the particular rack you desire for your boat or SUP. The system is designed such that the freestanding frame is a generic component that you can choose to add any type of Suspenz rack to. Suspenz designed (almost) all of their kayak, canoe, and SUP racks to mount directly on to the freestanding frame so that you can mix and match whatever racks you need for your particular storage needs.

As mentioned above, the freestanding racks are also expandable. If you have the standard freestanding frame (holds up to 2 boats or SUPs), then you can expand it to hold up to 6 boats or SUPs! This makes the Suspenz freestanding rack an excellent storage solution for the future because it can expand with your boat or SUP collection. Another great feature about the freestanding racks is the availability of add-on accessories. For instance, we offer caster kits, paddle holders, shelf brackets, and more that all are designed to attach to the freestanding frame. 

Deluxe Rack
The Deluxe Rack is a unique kayak wall rack because it will store your boat with zero pressure points. This rack includes Suspenz's exclusive Cradling Strap System (CSS) which is effectively a suspension strap system. These suspension straps conform to your kayak's geometry and are what allow this rack to not create any pressure points on your boat - awesome!

This rack is Suspenz's premium kayak rack and includes load assist pivot arms that make loading and unloading your kayak easy and a one-person job. The Deluxe rack is also great due to its heavy duty and powder coated metal frame. The tubular steel construction will ensure a long lifetime and allows you to store kayaks up to 100 lbs. The rack is powder coated in bright yellow for high visibility and rust protection. 

Another key feature about this suspension kayak rack is that it has built in safety straps. These are adjustable straps that can be tightened down to ensure your rack stays securely in place. This is a great feature if you store your boat outdoors in a windy spot or if you're afraid someone might bump into your board.

As an option, we offer a combination kit of casters and an adjustable crossbar. The casters are designed to replace the leveling feet and integrate directly into the rack. Each kit includes 4 locking and 4 non-locking casters, so you can prevent your rack from rolling away. The crossbar is adjustable in length from 4ft to 7ft and connects the two freestanding towers. Together, the casters and crossbar add stability and mobility to your freestanding kayak rack. This is our most recommended add-on for Suspenz's freestanding racks - you will enjoy you rack that much more with this combo kit. We've bundled them together to save you money and because you would never want to use casters without a crossbar - its just too unruly. 

This product has a one year warranty from the manufacturer.

For Suspenz Deluxe Rack & Marine Grade Deluxe Rack. To install the pivot arm, grasp the pivot arm, ensuring the strap is not twisted. Tilt up the C channel. Finally slide the C channel onto the arm. Perfect as is. If this is too tight, the pivot arm bolt needs to be loosened. Perfect!

Q:
What is the warranty for the freestanding, Deluxe 2-boat kayak rack?
 
A:
The kayak rack has a 1 year manufacturer's warranty.
 
 
Q:
I have 2 Hobie Outback kayaks width 33". My ceiling height in garage is 83" - will the Deluxe 2-Boat Rolling Rack work for me?
 
A:
Our freestanding, rolling rack has a total height of 48", so should fit inside your garage.
 
As far as your kayaks go, the suspension racks that holds them works for kayaks that are up "34” wide (beam), 23” deep and 100 lbs per kayak. So your width is close, at 33", but it could work - you should look at how deep they are, and again, if those are heavy kayaks, you would want to be aware of the weight max. Otherwise, this particular suspension system is a excellent way to protect your boats during storage.
 
Q:
Why does the price go up for a two kayak stand when you answer yes to casters and cross bar?
 
A:
The price for the two kayak freestanding system does increase when you add the optional casters & crossbar set . The casters and crossbar set are made specifically for this modular system, to extend its capabilities. The casters give the stand mobility (and replace the leveling feet you would normally use with the stand). The crossbar adds extra stability. They aren't required to use the stands. The stands are solid and strong, but the crossbar helps if you have particularly bulky or heavy boats, etc.. And if you move the rack around with the wheels, having the cross bar will help. So its how these items are built and made, and how they are made specifically for this system, that determines their cost, which is one we incur as well when we include them. We also find they are a valuable add-on and worth their cost.
 
Q:
Can the rack be screwed down on a pier? We have two kayaks and it would be nice not to have to carry the kayaks back and forth from the pier to the garage.
 
A:
Our freestanding kayak stand is often used on piers or docks. It is a very stable storage system, especially when ordered with the optional crossbar, so you could store it outside even without additionally mounting it to your pier. Should you want to affix it more permanently to your pier, you could find additional hardware to do so.
 
Q:
We live next to a public beach. And over the years people have " borrowed" our kayak and paddle boards. Do you make a locking system that would lock these to the storage rack?
 
 
 
A:
Yes, there are a couple of options you could use to help lock your kayaks and SUPs, such as these kayak locks - those ship with a 10 foot cable and a locking jaw, to secure one kayak - but additional locking jaws can be bought, and then you can use the same 10 foot cable to secure more than one kayak at a time. The same system is available for SUPs/Surfboards.

Another option for your kayaks is this kayak lock system, available in a few different sizes, depending on the size of your kayaks. Either system would work to secure your boats to the rack itself, or to another stationary object. Some more SUP lock options can be seen here.
 
Q:
What is the total height of the rack? I am going to have it on my dock on the Ocean and do I have to concern myself with corrosion
 
A:
To answer your first question, this 2 boat freestanding system is 48" tall - so 4 feet tall. If you add the optional caster wheels/crossbar, it will add a several inches to the height, so it will be a little over 4 feet at that point. This system is powder-coated, but it is not stainless steel or other marine grade materials, so I would *not* recommend it for outdoor use on the ocean, as it will be subjected to corrosion in a saltwater environment. The marine-grade version of this rack is found here:
 
 
The marine grade version has the same dimensions, but it is made out of galvanized steel with stainless steel hardware, so it can be used outdoors in saltwater areas.
 
Great storage

We live on a floating home with limited dock space. We wanted something sturdy for our kayaks. This rack is very sturdy. The straps really keep our kayaks snug so in the rough winters we won't have to worry about losing one to the river or damage to them. Also the rack enables us to walk around on our dock easier with the kayaks off the ground. This is the second item I've ordered from storeyourboard and both products came quickly and well packaged. I will keep ordering from them until I run out of water toys I need to find storage solutions for.

Quite pleased with the quality of the unit so far. I have not completed the assembly process as there is a missing portion of my users manual. I am in conversation with Suspenz reps to resolve my situation.
