How to use a kayak hoist

This Powerfly kayak rack is designed to suit almost any kayak as the system is fully adjustable. The kayak is secured with adjustable straps which are attached to high quality stainless steel hooks. The hooks are plastic wrapped to prevent scratching. A pulley system and 26ft (8m) rope let you easily raise the kayak as high as you need to. Thanks to strong metal parts and robust fabrics, the hoist can hold up to 125lb (54kg) so it will easily take the weight of your kayak, paddles and other gear. The system can easily be installed at home using the mounting hardware included. It needs about 20in x 4in of flat ceiling space to install, and the ceiling needs to be strong enough to support the system and its load.

Overall I really like this kayak storage hoist.
PROS: 1) The metal hardware and other parts of the pulley mechanism are sturdy and seem to be well made.
2) Once the pulley lock is in place, I have little concern that it will slip. I did purchase a small cleat to anchor the extra rope at a higher angle, because the lock disengages if the rope is straight down, like any pulley would.
3) It makes use of ceiling space to store my kayak and is definitely a space saver in my garage.
4) The price is so reasonable compared to other kayak storage options.
CONS:
1) The rope is very poor quality. It is woven but one of the multiple woven strands will be cut clean through in places. It was still strong enough hoist my kayak, but the cut parts would get stuck in the holes of the pulley and made it difficult to move up and down. Today I went out and purchased a 1/4" X 100' polypropylene rope from Home Depo for $11.94 rated for a 157lb working load limit. (75' would have been enough but was not available and nylon rope is not an option because it stretches).
2) The directions on how to string the rope through the pulley were difficult to follow. I had to pull up a few U-tube videos and after quite some time, I got it to work smoothly.

After restringing the whole pulley system with my new home depo rope, it works smoothly and I am very happy with it.

This thing is garbage. If you want to damage a brand new $1500 Kayak, then ok buy it.
The lock is stupid. First of all the instructions are absolutely terrible. Once installed correctly
with a Kayak up about 80%, you will find that the lock can only release if the ropes are exactly
vertical. The problem is: you can't pull vertical to unlock BECAUSE the Kayak is in the way.
Totally stupid. Then, without warning the rope slips in the lock and down comes the Kayak.
If you want to hear your wife scream - then buy this.

I got this to be my bike stand and repair stand. It works good. I determined that the hooks should be 32” apart then attached the brackets to a piece of 2x4 with 1/4 x 1 1/2 inch lag screws. Then I attached the 2x4 to another board I had screwed to the rafters. Then I carried the whole assembly up to the brackets. To thread the rope I found a kayak lift video on Youtube that showed how. I replaced the lag screws but found the Powerfly rope to be better than anything in the stores. The hooks are covered with durable plastic. The rope lock works good. If you are able to pull it a little the opposite way, it releases.

The metal brackets and pulley system seem very heavy duty. The hardware that came with it was not. 3 of the 4 lag bolts broke while I was screwing them in. The screw for the cleat broke screwing it in. The rope looked very cheap. I went to Lowe's to purchase heavy duty lag bolts and screws. I also bought 1/4" rope to replace what came with the unit. The sling straps were good quality. The instruction did not tell you anything. Advertised on Amazon as 125 lb capacity, the box said 100 lb capacity. My kayak is 105 lbs. Not worth the money since I had to purchase new rope and hardware.

Value: absolutely a good value for the investment
Integrity: I think it should last quite a while in that it will be used only 2 times a year, up in the late fall and back down in the spring.
Assembly: my mistake was to over-think it. It is actually extremely easy. Take the time to read through the entire process and envision how it will attach to your ceiling and it should go up quickly. The brackets that attach to the ceiling are surface mounted-this concept may help you initially.

While certainly not over engineered, it is more than adequate for my 60 pound kayak. One would do well
to have their own screws and lag bolts handy, as both cleat screws and two of the four lag bolts sheered off
during installation.

The hoist claims to have a capacity of 125 lbs, but does not. Once received, it clearly states a maximum capacity of 100 lbs, which was disappointing as I now have to remove seats from my fishing kayak to reduce the weight before lifting. The bolts for attaching the brace are low quality. The head of the bolt came clean off as I tried to attach the very first one and I had to run to the hardware store to replace them all with something better quality. The nylon rope is junk. It immediately frayed at the ends, which didn't impact the functionality, but did nothing to inspire confidence for holding a 15 foot kayak over my head. This one is also priced at double the same item from other vendors, which I paid thinking it had a higher capacity, which it doesn't.

Overall it seems sturdy. The rope seems okay. Works very well. All nuts and bolts metric. Instructions say it’s good to 100# / 57 kilograms. 57 kilograms = 125.7#. Directions on how to feed the rope not so good. Go to YouTube and there’s a man that shows how to do it. It’s only 3 min long and WELL worth viewing. I had no issues with hardware shearing.
