I use the Malone J Dock to store one of my Hurricane Skimmers 128 and a FeelFree Nomad. The Skimmer sits on the J Dock arms and the Nomad uses the strap sling underneath. This is used on a garage wall. This system is rock solid and extremely easy to use. First, installation was a breeze, the JDock arms attach to the wall with two very sturdy bolts. All hardware is provided by Malone. Like other racks, straps are always included and are appropriate for the weight of a a second kayak. Also included are straps to hold paddles under the J Dock. Getting your kayaks on the J Dock is a breeze. The bottom of the arms are padded with heavy duty rubber which also acts as a non-skid surface. The price was very reasonable compared to other wall racks and as usual Malone customer service is the best!

Light polyethyline plastic racks get lag-screwed into wall beams for an easy to use storage system. I used to use a hoist system but found that to be too much work. These come with nylon webbing straps for tie down, but in a garage setting, bungee cords connected to the bottom of the J-Dock and an eye bolt or screw hook above the kayak work much better and takes pressure off the bottom rack to keep them from weakening over time. I have them at knee level and it makes storing & retrieving the kayak very easy.
