  My husband made up a unit for us

using two boat type winches, one on the left and one to the right, such as shown in the first answer that are attached to straps that will hold three kayaks on the front wall of my garage.
The strap system is similar to NRS' item #1518, but is a triple set up. There's even room for one to sit on the floor.
Hubby even hung a tennis ball, from a beam, that will touch my windshield when I'm at the point to stop so the boats will not be touched and there's still room to walk in between the boat and vehicle.
It's been hanging there for several years and frees up floor space for the other boats. We've never had any problem with it whatsoever. Works great for us.
