Video Transcript for Swagman Tajo Wall Mounted Kayak Storage System Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Swagman Tajo wall-mounted kayak storage system, part number S65146. The Swagman Tajo is the perfect way to store your kayak when not in use. It features two J-style cradles with protective padding to help support your kayak. Two included straps come over the top of your kayak and help hold it in place. The straps have a protective material at the buckle to prevent the kayak from getting scratched. It holds one kayak with a weight capacity of 100 pounds. Now let's go ahead and take it off and get a closer look on how it's mounted.

So let's go ahead and start by undoing our cam buckles and then we'll take the longer of the strap, we're going to throw it behind the kayak just to get it out of the way. Now let's lift it off. Now, it's not a bad idea to get an extra set of hands if you need to. Let's go over some quick dimensions that could be helpful when you go about mounting it. So from the top of our hook here to about the bottom right in this area here there's going to be about 13-1/2 inches. It's going to stick out roughly 15-1/2 inches from our mounting hardware.

When not in use both the cradles fold in for compact storage. Simply remove the pin, fold it in, realigning the holes, lock it back in position, and then we've got it. It comes with all the hardware you need to get it installed: eight screws, four for each side. You just need to be sure to drill your 1/8 inch pilot hole so you don't strip them out. It also comes with four spacers, and that's going to be this piece right here. That's to help prolong the life of our padding to ensure it doesn't rub on our wall. Now, a quick safety tip to have is when drilling out your holes and putting your hardware in you just want to make sure that there's no plumbing or any electrical behind it.

Now, it doesn't rightly matter how you have them spaced out or mounted. I would just make sure you have at least two feet between the two or have it within the length of your kayak. As you can see with the kayak off you can really get a closer look at the padding on the hooks and see how it's going to really protect it and prolong the life of our kayak. Now, the whole system is made out of a sturdy steel construction with a gray and black powdered coat finish. So it's going to hold up and provide excellent support for a long time. That's going to complete our look at the Swagman Tajo wall-mounted kayak storage system, part number S65146..

Easy to install on garage wall. Kayak is safely held and easily accessible. Mounting instructions were clear and easy to follow. 157541

i love the racks, they worked extremely well for what we wanted. we actually mounted them on a trailer. the straps work really well. the only problem we had is one of the screws that holds the strap on fell out. but other than that, they work well. 289365

Pretty good product. However, rubber protectors have already cracked on the bends. 274371

Good, versatile design for wall mounting of kayaks, other slender boats. Boats with a lot of rocker may be difficult to mount due to the limited width of the cradles. 72830

Mounted the kayak rack yesterday and wanted to offer some feedback. In general, a pretty easy process. The screws do seem to be pretty soft; easy to strip a bit, even with 1/8" holes drilled. No disaster, but could be improved. What is wrong is that the straps seem backward. The clamp is mounted so that you must pull up to tighten the strap. Would be better/simpler to pull down on the strap. I see why the longer strap is at the top, but still bad mechanics. I mounted my rack pretty high on the wall, and not being tall, will have a problem using the strap as oriented. In addition, the clamp strap has no means to adjust its length. My kayak (a Poke boat) is pretty slim in cross-section, which makes tightening the strap very difficult unless I get on a ladder. I realize that some of this issue is due to the height that I mounted the rack, but I had to make sure that it put my boat completely out of the way of the car, bikes, etc., with which it shares the space. Would give the rack a good rating, but the odd engineering design and lack of a way to adjust the strap length are disappointing. Overall, does what I need though, just could be a killer rack with some slight changes. 546299

Order this for my third kayak. Needed to get off floor. Ordered, received in short time, and installed. It was perfect for my needs. In fact I just ordered two more - other two boats needed same quality securement. My old system was pipe and noodles and didn’t swing out of the way when needed. 477569

I ordered one set of these racks about two weeks ago. Installed them and decided to ordered two more sets for my other two boats. Yes I have three. My wife says no more boats allowed at our house - think she’s gone crazy. So with great satisfaction I guess I am temporarily retired from ordering any more storage racks or boats - well at least until she goes on a girls trip of something. They were easy to install. One comment about the Phillips head screws stripping, I had no issues. In fact to get the right clearance between the two boats I removed the screws a couple of times and re-secured. N problems with stripping. I think the key is to use a larger Phillips bit and get a straight push into the screw. The price on these racks was reasonable. 478256

I bought the first one just to check it out, it works great holding my 16’ touring kayak up off the ground. Matter of fact I bought two more for my sit on tops. It keeps all three off the ground and saved me a ton of space in my barn. 597041

This is a great, affordable, space saving solution for storing my very expensive (and heavy) fishing kayak securely in my locked garage and out of the way of my other garage hobbies. Love it! 439027
