Video Transcript for Malone Kayak Hammock Hoist System Review

Hello, neighbors, it's Brad here at etrailer, and we are in my disaster of a garage looking for storage solutions. And today, one of those solutions is the Malone Kayak Hammock. My garage is my workspace. I have multiple projects going on, I have two kids, and I have hobbies. To try to make these all work in a small space and still have it usable is really hard to do. Especially, with the Midwest winter coming, my wife doesn't wanna scrape her windows and I don't blame her, but part of that is making this spot clear.

So really I think my only options might be to go up. This is gonna be a great option for you that have kayaks that need storage, and including your sea and fishing kayaks which can weigh a decent amount of weight. This can handle 120 pounds, and so it should be safe to hold all those in place and have them out of the way. So this is my old solution for storing kayaks. And, honestly, it sees a lot of sun, so it gets faded.

Also, in winter time, it's cold and freezing, so the plastic over time can get brittle, as well as all my seating. And I'm relatively tall, so it's not too bad, but anyone shorter is gonna have issues. Now being outside, it is exposed to the elements, including rain and snow. So as that water actually contains in here, it sits stagnant, which breeds mosquitoes. So let's get rid of that and not have to worry about swatting them away during the summer.

We're gonna have this kayak looking really good for a lot longer than sitting outside in the elements. And being protected in our garage, also makes it pretty hard for someone to steal. Having this out of the elements and just out of the eye of any passerby is really nice to have. And I know an investment like this you wanna keep it looking good, but I understand that kayak storage sometimes you're limited and you have to put it outside. I've found that this part of real estate in my garage was unusable until I raised something up.

So this is the perfect solution to put it right where I need it to be. I have head clearance. I can still work at my work bench. And, honestly, it's a lot easier to use physics with pulleys to raise this up. So just putting the kayak on a holder, it's kind of heavy. Well, this actually makes it pretty, pretty light. So it has a braking system. So as you can tell right now, ropes hanging down, you simply pull it down and that's gonna loosen that break. Once loose, the weight of the kayak will actually start to bring it down. You can then alternate to bring the other one. Now once you have it on the ground, it's as easy as pulling your straps out and your kayak will be ready to go. Now the straps that are included are pretty simple, but effective. And the fact that there's multiple loops spaced out, and that's gonna allow you to adjust how big of the actual wrap goes around the kayak, and so you can adjust for width. And also, I found that tightening it up a little bit a couple of rungs actually puts it closer to the ceiling for me, so I do have that adjustability. These little claws here, spread it out, nice and wide. And that way it's not pinching here, and it keeps it nice and stable while lifted. Once you're back from your adventure, you can simply put your kayak on the ground. Put the first loop through one of the hooks. And then, again, you can adjust to what tension you want. So if you want a nice tight fit, you could go for that. But if you had the space, you can go one looser, and that's also not a problem. I like the fact that you can actually do one pulley at a time, or you can do both, so that way you know that you're raising it up properly. And, again, once you're done pulling it up, it can be hands-free. Also included in the kit is a cleat to make sure that it's actually secure. So many customers have used this for other uses rather than just a kayak. Whether it be a canoe, a rooftop cargo box, or any large cumbersome item that fits in that 120 pounds could feasibly be stored using physics. I actually am thinking about getting one of these for my daughter's Power Wheels, because this is one of those large objects, it's hard to store, it's hard to find a good spot for it. And now I can walk around, I don't have any clearance issues, and it's out of the way. And when they wanna ride it, it's as simple as undoing the rope, latching it down and it's ready to go. It comes with all the hardware you'll need to get it installed. Just make sure you're mounting it to the studs on your garage's roof. So if you have a stud finder, that's gonna be a great option. I just created a crossbeam section with a two by four to attach it to my studs, to make sure that I was getting good wood contact. And that was a look at the Malone Kayak Hammock installed in my garage. Thank you for watching..

Free up floor or wall space in your garage with this kayak hoist. The independent pulleys let you lift each end of the boat to ensure it hangs level. It's also great for storing a canoe, cargo box, bike, or ladder.


The MPG346 will work perfect! I am too old to lift this 13.5 ft kayak on my car so this will absolutely take the "work" out of my "play". Picture is of the kayak on my car. The cross rails and saddles were purchased thru Great service, on time, great products. It will also free up some floor space when the kayak comes home for the winter.





I purchased this to hang my 12 foot kayak up in a place that would keep it out of harms way, but would be easy to load onto my vehicle. Installation went very smoothly... Except, the brackets are designed assuming the support structure (rafter or truss) will run the length of your kayak. Mine run across the kayak from side to side. It was not a problem for me since my rafters are exposed. I installed a couple of short 2X8 blocks between the rafters and attached the brackets to the blocks. If I was installing inside a garage with sheetrock I would not have been able to mount and use this product. I am impressed with the appearance of the system, it seems to be well built. Hoisting my 80 pound kayak 8 feet in the air with the system was not too difficult, but did require a bit of effort. I am pleased with my purchase.


Used this for cargo box and rails. Much sturdier than the cheaper harbor freight units that I’ve used for bicycles and kayaks. Ability to control both ends a plus. Only complaint was rope had a frayed portion. Easily fixed with some heat from a torch.


Works great and easy to raise/lower with a 55lb, 18ft tandem.
The only thing I wish it had was better adjustment in the straps around the kayak. The preset loops are far apart and I wanted them tighter to get it closer to the ceiling. I wrapped them around the hooks a few times to get it higher.


Have always had a great experience with etrailer.
Will continue to spread the word about your company to friends and family.


Good quality and easy installation.


I enjoy doing business with etrailer, they carry very high quality products, price them fairly, provide absolutely great delivery service!

  • Can I Install the Malone Kayak Hammock Hoist System on a Single Garage Joist
    Thank you for the details and photo! To install the Malone Kayak Hammock Hoist System # MPG346 for your kayak I definitely recommend running the kayak perpendicular to the joists and add some supporting 2x4s between the joists in question. Joists are useful for storing stuff but they aren't designed to handle a ton of weight so you want it supported and you want to spread that weight out. If you were to place all that weight on a single joist it would likely start sagging and then you're...

  • Working the Pulley Catch on the Malone Canoe and Kayak Hammock
    I went out to our demo warehouse and put together the Malone Canoe Hammock's (part # MPG346) catch pulley together with both ropes to experiment a bit with how the pulley catch worked. What I found out is that the catch is very solid and exactly what you're looking for in this sort of product. It's a little tricky to get the catch to release. The best motion to release the catch is a smooth downward pull on both ropes to raise the weight a little before the catch will release and let...

  • Recommended Ceiling Mounted Bike Storage System for Single Bike
    The Malone Hoist System # MPG346 is designed for one bike or kayak at a time and will hold up to 120 lbs. It will work on ceilings up to 14 feet tall. Depending on how you want to suspend your bikes, you could get two bikes on this hoist by the front or rear wheel but for more stability you may want to just stick with one.

  • How Does Malone Hoist System for Bike Storage Lock the Rope?
    The Malone Hoist System - 120 lbs # MPG346 uses padded hooks and rope with a tie-off cleat that you mount to your wall. There is not a locking system other than this, so you don't need to be concerned about a mechanical failure and a bike locked to your ceiling.

  • How Can I Hang My Thule Motion XT Alpine Roof Cargo Box In My Garage?
    The Rhino-Rack Storage Rack for Kayak or Cargo Box - Wall Mount # RRRWHL would work well with your Thule Motion XT Alpine Cargo Box # TH629506. The weight capacity of the storage rack is 176lbs which is more than enough for your cargo box, which weighs 55lbs when empty. A better solution is to use the Malone Kayak Hammock Hoist System - 120 lbs # MPG346. This handy hoist system allows you to simply drive into your garage and lift the cargo box from your roof. This is a much easier and...

  • Can Thule Hullavator be Used to Carry Canoe
    The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 would be able to handle the 26 kg (57-ish lbs) weight of your canoe just fine but the shape of canoes and kayaks are different enough that the Hullavator Pro won't be able to properly secure your canoe since it's designed specifically for kayaks so we'll need to go another route. For your application I recommend using the Yakima KeelOver Rooftop Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs # Y04069 and then adding in the Rhino-Rack Universal Load Assist #...

  • Recommended Kayak Ceiling Storage for 2 Kayaks
    To raise and lower your kayaks, I recommend the Dutton-Lainson Hand Winch with TUFFPLATE Finish, Two Speed with Direct Drive - 1,800 lbs # DL15504. This winch provides an easy to use hand brake to make lowering your kayaks fast and easy. This will work with a strap like # DL24249 or a cable like # DL24045. Another option without the hand brake is the Pro Series Standard Brake Winch - Cable Only - 1,000 lbs # PSKR10000301 with cable # FWC7500100. This has a minimum weight of 50 lbs for...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2016 Honda Odyssey To Carry 103lb Hobie Kayak
    Congratulations on the new kayak! For your 2016 Honda Odyssey I recommend the Thule Roof Rack System using 60" Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711520, and Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH710401 if your vehicles has the factory raised side rails running front to back. If it has a bare roof you will need the 53" Thule Crossbars # TH711420, Thule Top Track Mounting System # THTP42, Rapid Podium Feet # TH460R, and Fit Kit # THKIT3101. Both of these kits have a 165lb weight capacity which is plenty...
