The perfect storage solution for any paddle sport enthusiast The Heavy-Duty Freestanding Kayak Rack has a compact vertical tower setup that safely stores 2 of your kayaks in a small area. As an added bonus, the unique arm shape is perfect to hold both kayaks and standup paddle boards. Use it with a combination of one kayak and one SUP or use it with 2 kayaks or 2 SUPs!
This rack is heavy-duty It is made from steel and then powder coated to withstand elements if you decide to use it outdoors (we would not recommend this rack being used in near saltwater for long periods of time). Being made from steel this rack can support up to 175 lbs which should be enough for even the largest kayaks and SUPs on the market. The tripod base is very steady and it comes with adjustable feet to level it out on any surface. The feet also have a place for an anchor to make it even more secure of you are mounting it on your dock or deck. The arms are also made from steel and come with a thick padded sleeve to protect your kayaks while they are being stored. The padded sleeve has an exterior nylon covering that is UV protected to stand up to the outdoors for many years.
Adjustable crossbar for different widths This kayak rack comes standard with a crossbar that connects the two freestanding towers. It can be adjusted from 4 feet to 6 feet to accommodate whatever size boats you have. The crossbar adds extra stability to the rack system.
Optional caster wheels for mobility Need to move your rack around the garage or wheel it out to the car for easy loading? Opt for the optional set of 6 casters to turn this heavy-duty freestanding rack into a mobile storage unit that you can easily roll around for convenience.
Increase rack height with optional expansion kit Perfect for fishing kayaks wider than 28", the optional Expansion Post Set increases the space between levels by an additional 28". Be sure to select the Black color option to coordinate with the rest of this rack.
I put it together about a week ago and I like the way it looks. I store my two kayaks in the basement, and needed a solution. I'm happy with the choice. The instructions were relatively easy to understand - I put it together myself in about an hour. I like that they provided a wrench; have another one on hand - a small adjustable wrench works fine - to tighten all the nuts and bolts.
It took a while to arrive - I think it came 7-8 days from when I received notice that it was shipped. Keep that in mind if you're pressed for time.
Great customer service, original package damaged and missing parts. Second shipment sent from company without issue. Stand is great for my kayak, would recommend an improved assembly instructions sheet be provided or a video instruction link. Otherwise it's great.
My husband and I put it together and it holds well. We do suggest if using inside to brace the back against the wall. This is a safety feature in case of mild earthshakes. The only thing we would like changed is bigger directions I used a magnifying glass to see which way parts went! And to see which way bolts and nuts went in. It is a Great product and we have already recommended it to our Kayak Club. Thank you for a Product that is built very well. Regards
Very impressed with this product. It did however, come with several holes in the carton. I was expecting to find that parts had fallen out as they were not in the bubble packs. Much to my surprise, everything was there.
I was most impressed how the unit went together, no force fitting or redrilling to get things lined up. I did have to disassemble one or two pieces because the instructions were not that clear in one or two instances. I would strongly advise to use the instructions, however, in assembly, rather than go to them when you have a problem like many of us tend to do.
The finished unit stands very solid, even without anchors. My friend did say that the nuts and bolts did rust prematurely which spoiled the appearance. I tried to buy stainless, but the price was too prohibitive, so I painted them with rust proof paint.
In spite of the few hick-ups, I am very pleased with this rack and would enthusiastically recommend it.
The rack is perfect for storing my two kayaks in the garage. Very stable and strong; can be bolted to the floor or left mobil. All the parts were contained in the package and in good shape. My only difficulty was assembly; I needed the video online as well as the paper directions. There were lots of screws and bolts designated for specific locations. That said, I like puzzles so it was fun. Highly recommend
This Heavy Duty Free-Standing Kayak Storage Rack for two kayaks is the best storage rack I've seen because it is sturdily built, securely holds the kayaks, is nicely padded, and uses space economically along the side of our garage so we can still park the cars in the garage. The only negative comment I would make would be about the written instructions; they need to be revised for detail and clarity.
Good solid rack product. Saves space in our garage. Biggest problem with the assembly chore was seeing the 3D expanded figure. The whole instruction sheet should have been twice as big to clearly understand the subtle but critical mechanical relationships. This problem easily doubled my assembly time. Not fun!
The set of directions were a little hard to read and the box was torn causing one of the bolts to fall out on my doorstep when it was delivered. Whatever broke the carton, broke through the plastic case that the bolts, etc. we're in.
That being said, everything was there and I assembled it without any problems.
The rack is holding my two kayaks very well in my garage. It seems very sturdy and has sleeves on the part that holds the kayaks in place so that they don't get scratched. Seems very sturdy. I think it will be serving me well for years.
I was tired of moving my kayaks on the garage floor so I purchased this rack. It fit our needs perfectly. It was easy to put together and seems very sturdy.
I received my order fast. It was pretty easy for me to put together. Great instructions! I had looked at other storage racks on other sites but they looked too flimsy but this one is sturdy. Thank you for a good quality Storage Rack!
I really like this storage rack. It's easy to place the kayak and paddle board in the racks, and easy to remove them as well. Great purchase!
The stand is very sturdy and well made. I included wheels so I can easily move it around my garage. My only advice is to clarify which screws go in the round holes and which ones in the square holes.
Excellent quality, easy to install and perfect for our storage area.
Easy to assemble! Works great... A real space saver!
I rated this good rather than excellent because the weather has kept me from mounting my kayaks.
I will say that I received the stand when expected, and ,with some thought and a partner, was easy to put together. It looks like it will work fine as a stable kayak stand.
Easily put together and very stable.
This storage rack is perfect for our two kayaks. The quality of the rack is great. Very solid!
We mounted this to the dock. I seems sturdy. We live on a small private lake. We are having wind gusts today of up to 20 Miles per hour and there is only a tiny bit of movement. Assembly on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being most difficult we rate it at a 4. We feel this was a good choice.
Works as described
Do you have kayak stands for 3?
Yes, we have other stands that can hold 3 kayaks. This one here, https://www.storeyourboard.com/three-boat-freestanding-kayak-storage/, is a very economical but effective option to hold 3 boats. One boat rests on foam spacers on the bottom level, then there are two sets of arm cradles that hold kayaks on the upper two levels. It is a tall stand, at almost 7 feet tall, so that is a consideration, but racks to hold 3 kayaks are, by necessity, taller. We have other choices as well, so if you do need more help looking at other options let us know, but that would be one place to start for three boats.
(Including Alaska and Hawaii)
