lidl ceiling bike storage

Post by CharlieS »

Just come back from Lidl with a pulley system for storing your bike on the ceiling. Five wheels, and apparently good for 20kg of weight for £4.99.
Wondering if I should have bought two combined to take the weight of one sea kayak?

May be cheap and easily broken. Might be useful.

Just don't attach the hooks on to the handles, Sea kayak handles aren't actually designed to hold the weight of the boat for a prolonged period of time, maybe make up some sort of sling to distribute the weight.

Been using similar Aldi ones for a while now. Replaced the iffy cord with 8mm rope, and fashioned strap slings. Mounted 2 pairs approx 6ft apart on my shed ceiling directly over where i park my car. Raises and lowers 2 boats straight onto/off the roofrack. The business.
