We are brothers and when the knees got replaced, the back surgery healed, the hair fell out and the beards turned grey we didn’t stop paddling.
Every group outing we noticed paddlers struggling to load their boats. Some had trailers that were hard to park. Some had expensive hydraulic lifts that still required you to lift your 75 pound kayak to your waist and only work for one boat on a roof. Some had rollers that only worked on special vehicles. We wanted a safer, easier, durable, portable and cost effective solution.
We explored lots of mechanisms with pulleys and levers, rollers and foam pads. We had lots of creative designs. The hard part was to make it simple, easy and cost effective. “Simplify,” became our mantra.
We needed a serious mechanical advantage. Wooden ramps have been used but portability was an issue. Heavy duty fiberglass poles solved the weight, corrosion resistance, and strength problems. We needed a simple way to shorten the poles to reduce shipping charges and improve portability. Also the joints had to be smooth to protect the boats. The simple solution was to attach the poles together with hook and loop straps and D hooks. Making the poles in four segments also allows it to fit different size vehicles.
It is easy to attach the poles to your roof rack set your load on the poles and slide it up the ramp on to your rack.
The result of our Simplify mantra, is the Easy Rack Ramp - a new approach to a roof rack lift. This is a canoe and kayak accessory that we are delighted to offer to help you get on the water quicker.
Loading canoes and kayaks by yourself were just made easy. Slide your canoe, paddleboard, or kayak up the ramp safely and quickly.
