Storing your canoe, kayak, cargo box or other gear is one of the most important considerations to take into account when purchasing a paddling vehicle. In order to be sure to transport your cane or kayak from one location to another safely and with minimal effort, using a box lift is a necessity.
After running the Thule Box Lift through our usual barrage of testing, we determined that not only does it stand up to the stress the average person will put it under, but also goes above and beyond on certain aspects.
First, the crank system Thule has installed in this model allows one to load and unload very easily, This allows for less strenuous work and makes the entire process very simple.
Mounting the Thule Box Lift is an ease as well. The package includes hardware that helps the user to affix it to ceiling studs or rafters without the complicated process of may other models. The instructions are easy to read, a step up from many other companies’ options.
Finally, the factor that makes this such a good buy is that it can fit almost any sized attachment, from very wide cargo boxes all the way down to skinny sea kayaks. It can easily handle up to 220 lbs.
Overall, we can’t recommend the Thule Box Lift enough. If you are looking for a reasonably-priced option for the movement of your kayak, canoe or cargo box, this is one of the best options for you.
