A strong and lightweight kayak rack to store 2 kayaks. This rack has many standout features including:
1). Outdoor Use - This rack has a multi-stage rust protection finish that allows this rack to be used outdoors in freshwater areas. When your kayaks are too big and bulky to be stored indoors setup this rack outside to store your kayaks.
2). Freestanding - StoreYourBoard customers always like the convenience of a freestanding rack. With a freestanding rack there is no need to screw or drill into your walls. All you need is a flat level surface to put the rack on and then put your kayaks on the rack.
3). Lightweight & Strong - A perfect combination of lightweight (19lbs assembled) and strength make this kayak rack easy to move around with one person but give the strength to support large kayaks
4). Add Kayak Capacity - This kayak rack features the ability to add another rack to this setup to store a total of 3 kayaks. The third rack anchors onto the backside of the rack which balances the load and keeps the storage compact. If you are interested in adding a kayak please select from the drop down menu above "Number of Kayaks Stored"
This rack can also act as a multisport rack. It is great for canoes, SUP, and surfboards. So if you are into watersports get one of these racks and get all your gear stored and ready for use. This rack also works well in a retail store as display.
The way this freestanding rack is setup also enable you to use the top rack as a place to hold your boat while you do maintenance and repair. It will hold your kayak when you want to get it rigged up for your next trip as well. The arms of this kayak rack are also wrapped in high density foam to protect the hulls of your kayaks from any scrapes or scratches while in the rack.
Howdy! I’m Andrew from StoreYourBoard.com here to talk to you today about our Freestanding Kayak Rack. This is a great option. It’s a nice and compact way to store two kayaks in your garage, maybe under your deck, your basement – wherever you want to put your kayaks away. You can see it right here we got two 10-foot recreational kayaks. There is a top level and there is a bottom level. The top-level kayak will lay flat horizontal; the bottom level you can choose to put your kayak on a slight angle.
We’ll move the kayaks around to show you more of the rack in a minute, but here it is, fully assembled. There is some slight assembly required with two kayaks. So now we’ll take this top kayak off and you can see this top level. On the front and back, there are bent pieces of metal that cradle your kayak to allow it to lay horizontal. You can choose to lean your kayaks towards that front piece if you want or rest it on that back piece.
The space from here to here is about 28 inches to fit a wide variety of kayak width. The space from here to here is about 4 feet, 48 inches, so you really can go to some pretty long kayaks, but however you feel comfortable maybe based on the combination of widths and lengths what you’ll fit on that space.
So now we’re going to move this bottom-level kayak to the top, so you can see right now it’s sitting on that front up bent metal piece. You can move it to the back if you choose. You’ll notice on the bottom level, the kayak has to fit in a little bit tighter space. This is about 24 inches. It doesn’t have that back extension piece, but that’s still ample room. You can maximize that room by angling your kayak the way we had it earlier.
Just one last thing to point out. This is made of powder-coated steel material. It’s very heavy duty and we recommend it for some outdoor use but more in freshwater environments. We have a couple of other stainless steel heavier duty outdoor saltwater racks. Last thing, these support pieces are padded with some heavy-duty foam, a great way to keep your boat from experiencing any pressure distortions while they’re in the rack.

Easy to put together. Hardware was good quality. Loaded it up with one 14' and one 16' polypropylene boats, seems solid under load.
Assembly is easy and it's very sturdy.
Pleased with sturdiness and quality of materials. Directions easy to follow.
Was one nut short prompting a trip to hardware store.
Great product, small footprint and is exactly what I was looking for. So glad I found this site. However ... What should have been an easy assembly was frustratingly complicated by faulty assembly instructions. Part piece instructions were reversed ... As one reviewer commented, "poor machine quality"', I think was just that he was trying to fit the wrong pieces together due to mislabeling. Someone needs to proofread the parts and pictures instructions. The online assembly instruction page is incomplete in that it shows only one page, the problem is on page 2-3. I had, in frustration, thrown out the instructions otherwise I would upload them (as a photo) with what should be the correct matching of pieces. It's a simple fix to add an addendum to the instructions and they haven't, either because they aren't aware of it, or don't care and think the customer will eventually figure it out.
The concept is good - the craftsmanship (metal work) was very rough. Trying to thread the bolts, nuts etc was challenging as the metal was very roughly cut.
This is the perfect kayak rack for me. I have 2 - 10' recreational kayaks (LL Bean and Wilderness Systems). I use this rack outside under my elevated deck. It fits the 2 kayaks in a really compact space and I am able to store both of them with the bottom side facing up so I am not worried about them collecting water that drips down through the deck. The rack seems very strong and have nice padding on each of the rungs (we will see how long this lasts outdoors). Before this rack I kind of just laid the kayaks anywhere I could find and I would always have to move them because they were in the way. Now they are both tucked away. Very happy with this product.
