The Double Kayak Floor Stand is part of Suspenz's premium line of freestanding kayak racks! This particular kayak rack consists of 2 basic components: a freestanding frame (U-shaped base support and a vertical support post) and 2 sets of 2 rack arms that attach to the freestanding frame to store your 2 kayaks. We also offer similar racks for 3 Kayaks, 4 Kayaks, 5 Kayaks or 6 Kayaks.
Freestanding Storage Frame. 2 separate base frame pieces come with this rack. The 2 freestanding frames are not attached to one another so you can set them up at whatever distance you need to accommodate your kayaks. Leveling feet on the bottom of the frames ensure that you set up your frames leveled, despite uneven mounting surfaces. This is great for unpaved surfaces like outdoor spaces, gravel, or dirt. Additionally, you can choose to add accessories that integrate directly with your frames: caster wheels, shelf brackets, and a connecting cross bar (see below).
Rack Arms. These are Suspenz's "EZ Kayak Rack" arms; they're covered in high quality 600D Nylon foam padding to prevent abrasions, dents, and hull distortions that would occur if your kayaks rested directly on metal rack arms. Built into each rack arm is an adjustable and easy-to-use safety strap to keep your kayak securely in the rack. This strap provides peace of mind for your favorite boat and prevents your kayak from accidentally falling out.
Steel Construction. The kayak rack's monolithic, tubular steel construction will ensure a long lifetime and allows you to store a variety of size and shape kayaks! With a weight capacity of 100lbs (per level), this rack is suitable for most whitewater, sit-on-tops, and smaller recreational kayaks. This rack will store your kayak on its side (gunnel) where it is strongest, too.
Indoor and Outdoor Use. The rack and frame both are finished with a powder-coat built to withstand indoor and outdoor elements and not rust or deteriorate. This means you can move your kayak rack (hopefully using the optional wheels!) from your garage, to your car for loading and unloading, to your dock or deck, to wherever else you want it, and you'll know it will last.
Caster Wheels and Crossbar Kit - as an option, we offer a caster wheel and adjustable crossbar kit:
Canoes or Kayaks wider than 34" Add our Expansion Posts to extend the height of the rack and allow for a more comfortable fit for your larger boats.
This product has a one year warranty from the manufacturer.
Very sturdy -- did not need the crossbar for placing on a gravel driveway. Easy to assemble - works perfectly.
The rack system seems sturdy and of high quality, providing safe and secure storage for our two 17' sea kayaks. The racks were simple to assemble with clear, easy-to-read instructions.
We also purchased the adjustable cross-bar for the rack system in order to provide some additional stability. My comments regarding the quality of the materials and ease of assembly apply to the cross-bar as well.
Prior to purchasing these racks, I had e-mailed StoreYourBoard as I was considering a couple of different options for storing our kayaks. Customer Service's prompt and accurate response to my e-mail was a factor in selecting the Suspenz Free-standing Racks.
The kayak rack is easy to assemble, very sturdy, and I like the color. It doesn’t have a large footprint but provides plenty of room for our two 12ft. kayaks. Loading and unloading is fairly effortless. I highly recommend the storage rack.
Solid product. One star less than excellent due to somewhat vague instructions and damage to one of the brake caster wheels. That said, I am still pleased with the unit.
This unit was purchased to accommodate a pair of Ocean Kayak “Frenzy” boats in a tight garage space (more about sizing at the end of this review). Assembly was straightforward, with sufficient tools included, and took about an hour; unlike others, I found the printed instructions adequate. The parts and hardware are solid and with tight fitment. The crossbar that came with the optional caster set made the unit even more rigid. And, with tight floorspace, I appreciate the narrow footprint of the stand. However, with the arrival today of our two new OK Frenzys, we found that the unit won’t accommodate both boats without height extension bars, which I just ordered direct from Suspenz, along with an additional crossbar for added strength across the top.
Product is, for the most part, well designed and constructed. I was pleased by the substantial nature of the metal, casters, arms and hardware. The arms are not as pictured; they bolt directly to the towers and are not easily adjustable. The bolts are barely long enough for the job and result in some deflection of the metal. Packaging is poor; boxes arrived beat up, and parts were bent/paint chipped. Fortunately, because of the substantial nature of the metal, a few whacks with a sledge hammer straightened things out.
Very happy with the quality of the product: sturdy, well-designed and exactly what we needed to store two sea-kayaks in our basement. It is very stable and saves a huge amount of space. Delivery was on time. We are very satisfied overall.
One complaint only: a lousy instruction pamphlet for assembly. The illustrations are unclear, the text is confusing. One suggestion therefore: learn from Ikea! They use no text (none of the technical jargon only mechanics can understand!), only large and detailed drawings illustrating the process step-by-step (no question as to the exact order and placement of the parts).
Otherwise this product is fantastic.
This Suspenz kayak stand is well constructed and easy to assemble. The wheel set is heavy duty and rolls smoothly. I have two wide kayaks and I needed to order the extension posts to handle the boats. This made the stand 6 feet tall instead of 48 inches. StoreYourBoard was excellent to deal with. They were responsive and worked with me to accommodate my needs.
This product worked well for storing our two kayaks. I was concerned about the weight and size of our Hobie kayaks, but the kayak storage stands were a perfect solution. They were super easy to assemble. We are storing the kayaks in our garage and they do not take up a lot of floor space. I would definitely recommend this product.
Great product. One of the straps was broken but Bri from customer service had a replacement out within a couple of days. Great experience
The stand is industrial strength and works better than advertised!
I did have trouble figuring out which screws went to which location. but once that was figured out, it all went together easily. Thanks for supplying tools very helpful. directions were comical, I did have a cocktail after putting i all together. Kayaks seem to be happy, they never complain. thanks.
I bought these racks to store my 2 ocean kayaks in the garage. They were easy to assemble and light enough for me to move to their winter home in the garage. I am very pleased and will never regret my choice. I may move them outside for the summer.
Very good product. I bought this to create some space in my garage, and mount it on the wall in the spring. Very sturdy easy to assemble.
Didn't buy caster set but added on later aftermarket casters. Casters make it much easier in garage to move around.
