This product definitely met our expectations. It was simple to install, and hoist our Wilderness System Tarpon 120 and Tsunami 135 to the ceiling of our garage. The lift advantage was evident for my 5feet and 110 pound wife, as she was able to hoist and then lower her own kayak with just a broom handle.
The only things we would change would be to lengthen the straps so that a ladder isn't required for retrieving the strap prior to raising the kayak (the strap tends to slide up towards the ceiling when prepping), and perhaps rubberize the tie-down components to reduce scratching. Over-all best product we've tried for the money.
