Product Description

Take advantage of your unused overhead storage space with this Heavy Duty Canoe Hoist kit. Designed with an industry best 4-point lifting system, this canoe lift kit will allow you to effortlessly store canoes and kayaks up high and out of the way. This hoist kit is not your average ceiling hoist, this kit is in a league of its own with precision pulleys, stainless steel hardware, locking cam, and high strength rope. Storing your boat overhead has never been easier or safer. 

The Heavy Duty Canoe Hoist is designed to work on ceilings up to 10ft tall. The hoist is easily operated by one person, but has a self-locking safety cleat that grips instantly in the event of accidental release. The 4-point system provides a safer and more stable lift compared to the standard 2-point system. Additionally, the soft strapping that runs underneath your hull provides a long term way to store your boat that won't cause hull abrasions or distortions.

Q:
Can this be used with ceilings over 10"?
 
A:
Our heavy duty canoe hoist is manufactured for use with a maximum height ceiling of 10 feet. If your ceiling is taller than that, whether or not it could work for you depends on how much taller your ceiling is, and whether you have a landing spot above ground level, that would work for you to hoist the canoe from. For example, for a 12 foot ceiling, the hoist lowest point would land a couple feet from the ground. If you had canoe work stands, or a riser or something, to hoist the canoe from a few feet off the ground to the ceiling, then it could possibly work; or if you want to hoist it from above a roof rack on your vehicle, that is another possible work around to having a taller ceiling. In any event, it might not be as straightforward as it would be with a ceiling that had a maximum height of 10 feet.
 
Q:
Can this product work in an outside hard stand carport storage? (Carport is attached to house.....like open garage).
 
A:
This canoe hoist needs to attach to ceiling rafters, so your carport/open garage would need to have a proper ceiling with rafters to mount it safely. It also needs to span over about 3 rafters. They can be exposed rafters or not exposed, but you would need to locate them if they are not exposed. Semi-outdoor use may cause it to weather over time, though it works fine in a garage.
 
Q:
Will this hoist pull my garden dump cart (190 lbs) up from my garage floor and store my dump cart near the ceiling? The straps could be placed under the dump cart
 
A:
At 190 pounds, your garden dump cart is going to be pushing the weight maximum for this ceiling hoist (200 lbs), and depending on the shape of your cart, I would be a little concerned how stable the system would be to hoist and hold your cart. It could work, but I couldn't guarantee it. It could be tricky to mount it to accommodate a cart like that. Our listing here has a copy of the the mounting instructions for your review, in case that gives you a better idea what would be required to use this for something other than a canoe or a kayak, and whether it could work for your intended space.
 
Q:
For Ceilings over 10ft couldn't I just buy a longer rope to accommodate the extra height?
 
A:
Adding rope length to this hoist system is not going to be a safe or effective way to use it for lifting and storing your boat, nor how it was manufactured to be used. The alternatives for higher ceilings are hoisting the boat to a platform on the floor (say some boat stands, etc.), or riser platform, that is 10 feet from ceiling, or considering a hoist that has longer lengths, such as this one, though it only holds up to 120 lbs.
 
200 lb hoist

I was suspicious when you said that this hoist would hold 200 lbs. I was even more suspicious that I could actually lift my Hobie kayak (120 lbs) without getting a hernia. To my surprise it was easy to install and I can literally lift my kayak with one hand. A bit pricy but so far you were the only hoist I could find with the 200 lb capacity. Very happy with your hoist at this time.
