Very well engineered product - super strength with minimum profile. The pic shows how I tucked in the kayak in my garage, with continued garage use below and above. May get a second Koova rack if we get a second kayak.
The one minor design change I would suggest is on your bolt mounting flanges to space the holes 1/2" farther away from the rack so that a drill driver can work from a perpendicular (instead of slightly askew), allowing full room for the drill chuck.
Thanks for an excellent product!
Exactly what I needed. Easy to install and super heavy duty.
I have to criticize the packing job. The box showed up today on my porch all beat up. And the product was exposed on both ends of the box. Not happy.
The rack pieces look well made. We will see once installed.
Went up without a problem and much stronger than the expensive galvanized pipe I was using.
Excellent, sturdy rack for our kayaks and paddle board. Very easily installed with the included high-quality hardware.
After getting burned by other rack systems that claimed to hold 150lb rating I wanted a solid 1 piece steel option with long enough arms to hold my large watercrafts. These things are 100% stable and reassuring, thank you for the grea product if my fleet grows i will definitely be buying more Kooza racks
Just finished installing the kayak racks. Mounted them on my metal frame building using #14 self-tapping screws. If I have any thing to complain about it was the adhesive pads didn't stick very well however it was in the mid 40's which was a factor I'm sure. Overall very happy with the purchase. Very well constructed and finished. I have the bike racks to install now. I would highly recommend these racks to anyone in need of kayak storage.
Got asked to write a review. Hasn’t arrived yet. Shipment very delayed.

Great product - solid and sturdy construction
Yay! Super easy to install and super easy to use. We had the boat house ready to go (well, after we tossed out 30 years of accumulated stuff) in an afternoon. That included installing new wall studs on the rock walls, screwing in 5 sets of Koova brackets, and bringing in the kayaks, paddles, and sailboat. The foam rubber is a great touch that keeps everything in place -- especially the sailboat that has to be situated upright to hold all of its component parts. I have one bracket set left for storing the river kayak I have my eye on. :)
A few hiccups that had nothing to do with Koova, but the racks work great, even for my extra wide fishing kayak! Highly recommend this product!
Very easy to install, very sturdy makes nice rack .
Product looks good, as expected. However, it was beat to hell during shipping as evidenced by the beat up box. Two lag bolts and the bit were apparently lost during shipping. I like the racks but would feel better if I were provided the lag bolts and bit I purchased
Strong brackets easy to install.
The racks were easy to install and feel very solid. Bonus: I was able to support a local Charleston-area business!
Simple clean design. Makes the garage neat and tidy and maximizes the space. Easy install. Very pleased.
We mounted our kayaks inside our boathouse. I loved the flexibility of placement that the Koova system afforded us as the floor of the boathouse is sloped down toward the water. They are sturdy, attractive and easy to install. I highly recommend this product.
Perfect for our boat house. I looked for many options and this seemed like the best fit. Easy to install. 4 kayaks and 2 paddle boards.
Sturdy solid build and I love the holes that allows you to use a tie down if needed. Would highly recommend if you are looking for a way to store your kayak.
Easy to install, took no time. Works great, three kayaks on back of shed.
Super easy to install, low profile for maximum storage for multiple kayaks. Great quality and solid.
Don’t know we were at lake house for 2 weeks del date was thur then fri then sat then sun after we left sun morning. They are setting by front door and hopefully still there when I go back in a month. If you would of been honest on delivery timeframe I would of waited and order a week before we go back down.
Works just as described and holds heavy fishing kayaks upright! Could have left them rigged if I only had two of them, but had to remove some rigging for space!!!
Sturdy and good design
I will send pics after I install in April.
Great product and service !
Still haven’t received it yet. Supposed to arrive February 15th
Just installed them today. Easy to install, easy to load. Heavy dirt enough for our two 17’ touring kayaks. Works as advertised.
These bars were just what I needed to fit a third boat on my wall.
It is a quality product. I am happy I purchased a few pairs for my kayaks.
Overall the product meets my expectations. For a while I didn't think that 3 kayaks would fit, but I was wrong.
I wish the instructions were more clear about the brackets. 1) the bracket has two different sizes of holes. Use the smaller holes to anchor to the bracket to the rail. 2) the larger holes are offset so that the arm angles upward. Be sure to install all brackets in the same way (not symmetrical on the two rails) or some arms will angle downward.
Small installation hiccup aside the racks look great, seem sturdy, and hold my three kayaks nicely.
Just got it put in and I like how it’s a complete unit. Wish the wall rails were longer so I didn’t have to relocate them to make it work. It does work perfect once I got it.
Love that it was adjustable and very easy to install.
Excellent experience. Arrived quickly, fair price, high quality materials, great instructions. Totally transformed our boat shed!
No way this holds three kayaks. Order a second set of Koova Struts to make this work. Seems well built. My organization attempts are on hold until the additional struts arrive.
This Kayak bracket system is the first one I've found that I was looking for in a rugged wall mounted long arm style type of bracket. The long arms are padded to protect the Kayaks. This system is flexible so you can install two, four, or six arms for 1 to 3 Kayaks. The brackets are made of heavy duty 3/16" steel. All hardware is also heavy duty, bolts, nuts. The clinch type nuts fit into the vertical "U" channel holding mount/bracket. The vertical mounts attach to wall studs in my garage attic. Quality/price/performance are well met with this bracket system. Thanks Koova for a great solution to my need.
This is such a great way to get our kayaks up off the garage floor! When we were installing it, I noticed we were sent the wrong bolts to connect the arms to the wall brackets. I contacted KOOVA by email and quickly received a response apologizing for the error and the correct hardware package would be sent to me as soon as they opened on Monday, I was told. I had the hardware package on Tuesday. I was able to install the arms and now our kayaks are safely on the wall. Thank you for a great product and thank you for "righting a wrong" so quickly. Much appreciated. PS- today I received in the mail a note from the founder Mark with a discount to use on my next order. This business is TOP NOTCH! Many thanks!
