The Kayak Jack is a single-user boat lift for loading your kayak or canoe onto a roof rack. Kayaks are heavy and cumbersome when trying to lift and load them alone. The Kayak Jack allows you to adventure independently with ease! The Kayak Jack is light weight and portable and doubles as a storage rack for your kayak when not in use. Simply lower the jack and roll your kayak into a garage for off-the-floor storage.
Featuring lightweight construction, Kayak Jack works with both kayaks and canoes. The base - featuring locking wheels, expands/elongates when you are ready to load your kayak or canoe. Once expanded and in the lowered position, you can easily place your kayak or canoe onto the j-racks (aligns your kayak at the same tilted angle as your roof rack) or for your canoe in the upside-down position) so that when you load your boat, it is perfectly aligned with the roof rack system of choice.
In the lowered position, the Kayak Jack is at knee-height or below and makes it easy to put your kayak or canoe on the lift system. No more struggling to hoist the kayak 6 feet into the air to load it onto your car! Load your kayak onto the Kayak Jack, roll the system to the back of your vehicle and lock the wheels in place.
Then using the hand-crank (much like a car jack) crank the lift, raising the scissor-lift system to the proper height for loading to your car's or SUV's roof rack.
Next, simply slide your boat onto your roof rack.
Once your kayak is secured, simply crank the Kayak Jack into the lowered position, collapse the base and top to store your Kayak Jack in your vehicle's trunk for use when you get to the lake or river.
When you're finished with your kayaking adventure, the Kayak Jack makes a great storage system in the lowered position. Simply roll the Kayak Jack into a garage or alongside the house for off-the-ground storage of your kayak. It will be ready to roll when you're ready for your next water adventure!
