I am extremely pleased with this product -- I would order it again. It was fairly easy to install. It works amazingly well. Also, I called ACK twice while considering this product and they were very helpful.
The hardware in the Harken lift system is first rate, but it is very difficult to install in a recently built home due to the I-beam glued ceiling joists used in modern construction.
Works great. Getting the 2x6s and 2x4 attached to the ceiling was the hardest part. After that, the installation went quick. We're using it for a truck bed accessory that weighs about 80-90 pounds. Lifting it with this hoist is very easy.
Great product. allows storage of Kayak at ceiling level, and when needed just lower kayak on to pickup unhook the buckles and drive away.
