How To Hang A Kayak In A Garage

Here are some methods for how to hang a kayak in a garage. Most people will leave their kayaks out year round, rain, snow, sleet, or hail. However doing this can deteriorate the kayak over time, so it's best to keep your kayak indoors, and what better way to do it, than by finding a spot to hang it. Hanging a kayak on the wall in  your garage will also help you save room, no longer will you have to store it outdoors, or leave it on your garage floor.

  1. First decide the most convenient area to hang the kayak in your garage. Do you want to build a beam rack close to the ceiling (for higher ceilings), or would you prefer to hang it on the wall? Hanging on the wall is usually the easiest method.
  2. Kayak wall hangers are a simple fast solution to hanging your kayak in your garage. They can be installed extremely quickly and can hold the kayak and ores on your garage wall.
  3. You can build a kayak rack yourself. You will only need two or three wall brackets. You simply screw them into your wall (make sure you screw them into your wall studs), and place your kayak gently on them. There is no need to add a shelf.
  4. Kayak hoists can be used in your garage as well to hang your kayak. Kayak hoists are an excellent option because it makes removing the kayak from the hoist easy because the ropes are adjustable.
