Show me your rack!

Nice Cheech.

 

I have those J racks outside on 4x4 posts cemented in place.

I have a pair in my shed too.

For the past 5-7 years I've been hanging my Adventure 16 in my

cellar by Easy Rider Kayak Hoist.   I'm thinking of getting another one,

that's how much I like that product.   Bought mine at Joblot.

I have concrete walls. Need to borrow a hammer drill regardless of which rack i pick.

To attach the racks I first ramset 2x4” vertical cleats from the floor up (for extra support). Wall anchors could work too. I wouldn’t trust attaching the racks directly to the concrete with a weighty yak. I had to tie it off on top because of the steep angle.

Advice appreciated

Suspenz kayak racks just find a stud.  If concrete just use any kind of bolt that opens on the inside like for mounting a tv on drywall or regular toggle bolt.

i used 3/4 aluminum pipe, bent into a J hook shape and screwed it to the studs in the garage wall.

pool noodles slide over easily with a bit of Teflon spray applied directly to the pipe before hand. been holding my boats since about 2009.

added plastic caps threaded on the ends, partly for looks and not to have bare metal sticking out. 

easily relocated when i moved too!
