Be careful with slat wall, as it will break out. For sure, it won't support anything like a kayak. The longer the standoff/hook, the easier.

I suspended our kayaks using HF bicycle lifts. They're not perfect, but, work. For safety, I use a motorcycle strap, to ensure they don't drop if the lift's rope stops give way.

I've never had to use one, but always think would it be easily accessible and away from where a fire most likely would break out? Besides, you'd hate for all that ammo to go up in smoke!

Thanks. That's good advice for sure. I actually keep four fire extinguishers in the house. Two in the basement, one on the first floor and one on the second floor.

This is kind of where I was headed with my comment - I think max missed it.

I loved the Ford print ads in India...I don't know why they got crucified for it.

Yeah, I've learned the limits of slatwall. But the kayak is in the main garage. It's an 11' ceiling, and I want to take advantage of that height. But the Suspenz system looks cool. There is an unused spot on the wall where I could mount that.

I have 2 kayaks overhead on the HF bicycle lifts. They are okay for the $7 "on sale" price, but replace the "rope" they supply with something better from a hardware store.

I have five kayaks, hung one on top of the other from the ceiling joists of the garage, using wood threaded hooks and loops of canvas strap with brass eyelets. You can get all the materials at the hardware store for under $30. Easy, cheap and effective. It also takes up NO space when the kayaks are not there.

The only problem is my wife thinks my fishing Kayak now makes a great shelf for storing HER stuff.

Jim - give us a long view of the shop from farther back.

Are those horizontal office-type filing cabinets? Nice. I'm surprised you can keep the place so organized with no shelving on the walls.

I have three small shelves. One to the right in back for bicycle helmets, one on top of my two cabinets over my workbench for display, and one over my gear hanger for helmets. Everything else foes in cabinets, horizontal office type with drawers. Helps keep it clean and organized.

I still make messes all the time though.
