Is the large rack suitable for a 30in wide kayak?
Yes, the larger-sized rackwould work fine for a 30" wide kayak, and be recommended for your kayak.
I have 2 different brands of Kayaks. First the Wilderness Tarpon 120 Angler Sit on Top, and my Second, Jackson Cuda LT, Real Tree , Sit on Top. They are 30" and 32" wide, both approx 65 lbs. What size should I get, Large or Extra Large?
You would want the extra large of these kayak racks for both of your kayaks, as the extra large is meant for larger fishing kayaks.
How would I lock my kayaks on this rack, using the Lasso type locking system?
These "lasso" type kayak locks (available in small, for boats that are 9' to 14' long
- or large, for boats that are 13' to 19' long
) have two cables that are looped around your boat then secured with a lock to a stationary object, such as this wall rack. Alternatively, an option may be this kayak lock
, that secures to your kayak's accessory rails, with a cable that can be attached to a stationary object.
What is your size recommendation for an Old Town Loon 120 and Ocean Kayak's Caper?
I would recommend the XL size of our Outdoor Kayak Racks for both of your boats, primarily based on their width at beam and style-shape. The XL is definitely the better option for ocean kayaks like your Caper; for your Old Town Loon, its also probably a better fit as well, due to its size and shape. The length on either is not going to be an issue - you can set the rack arms up as far apart as you need to, to support your boats.
I have 2 ocean kayaks. One is 24" at it widest point and one is 21". Both are approximately 15' long. Should I get the L or XL of the kayak wall rack?
I would recommend the XL size as that works best for ocean kayaks because of their shape. The length of your kayaks won't be an issue as you can set the arms as far apart as you'd like!
I have two Wildnerness Pungo 14's. Which size would be the best?
I would recommend the Extra Large size of this outdoor kayak rack; the length of your Wilderness Pungos (14 feet) isn't a factor, since you will set the cradle arms at the necessary distance to support the length of the kayak. The main factors will be the depth & width. It looks like those kayaks are about 13 inches deep and 28 inches at the beam, so the longer arm of the Extra Large size is better suited for that model boat.
I have an 8' Coleman Hooligan which rack would be best?
Most likely either size of this kayak rack would work for your kayak; those appear to not be too wide or heavy, so you may be able to use the large size of this rack, that holds up to 125 lbs and would work fine for a 28" inch or so wide kayak. If the kayak is much wider than that, you may want to consider the XL version.
Absolutely great quality and ease of install.

Easy to install on the side of our garage. Used spacers to avoid crushing the vinyl siding. Both boats (Old Town)--great big things-- fit nicely. The only reason I gave it a good rating rather than excellent is the fasteners for the rack. I would have gone with stainless steel rather than painted steel fasteners. Thanks for designing such a fine rack.

Easy to Install and worked beautifully. I ordered one as a test and then ordered two more for the rest of my Kayaks after installing and using the first one. I even like the detailed installation instructions with pilot hole size, leaving top screw loose until bottom screw is in place securely, and using soap to assist the screw into the wood. Well Done!

This arrived to my doorstep 3 days after I purchased. I am very impressed with how sturdy it is. I mounted it to the side of my shed out back and it works perfectly.
