To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Wish I'd gotten this years ago. Used it to hang an 17' canoe in our barn to keep it out of the weather. Easy to install. Had to reinforce the rafters a bit as a precaution, first. Been hanging in the barn since the Fall without issues. Happy canoe, as opposed to tippycanoe.
Item doesn't have a good, heavy-duty rope as described. I have a brand new 80lb Old Town Kayak that I purchased this hoist for. I lifted the boat 5 or 6 times in the process of installing the unit and learning how to use it. The rope is cheap, thin, hollow, and already has many frays in it. I will have to purchase a replacement rope before it breaks and a brand new kayak falls to the ground.
So.. my baby daddy has hung our large canoe 75 times using large U hooks. About 75 times, it’s ended up on the hood of my car, overnight. Awesome, right? No! Each time resulting in me telling him he’s a bum ass trick ass hoe - who can’t Bob the Builder right(Don’t worry folks, it’s our love langue). Well let me tell you this bum came over and hung this thing in 15 mins and it hasn’t left the ceiling. Easy to install and easy to hang the canoe! I’m tempted to give 5stars. Will update in a few months after a bunch of uses!
