Needed a space-saving way to store our 4 kayaks in the new house. After some playing with ideas on paper, came up with this simple, mobile and inexpensive solution. About $40 in materials (including casters) and an afternoon in the garage and it was done.

Some screw eyes hold the cable locks I use to secure them. The kayaks are held on the rack with straps form the roof rack. I made some cross-supports using 550 cord.

It rolls around the garage easily and stores the kayaks….mission accomplished!

Looks strong. Adding the casters was a good idea. I’ll bet it makes things a little easier on you. Nice work.

What’s that car doing in the garage? That’s where tools go!

Yes, well, that is the wife’s vehicle….and we’re in upstate New York now, so we’re expecting lots of white precipitation this winter…..I’m sure you all understand! ;-)
