*This is not a plug for Home Depot – it just happened to be the closest, easiest and cheapest way for me to get the materials.

**Tip: Make sure to get the correct Arm Hangers – Lowes sells a version that will not fit many kayaks.

  • Pencil
  • Drill and drill bits
  • Tape Measure
  • Pliers
  • Stud Finder (Optional)

How To:

Step 2: Drill pilot holes for both braces and then screw in both braces with 2.5 to 3 inch screw to studs.

Step 3: Hold bungee across kayak to determine where eye screws should be inserted into studs to ensure additional support. Mark and drill pilot holes for eye screws. Use pliers to twist in eye screws.

Step 4: Place kayak in braces and secure to wall with bungees.
