The rack was easy to assemble. One of the screws was stripped so I had to run to Lowes and buy another one but no big deal. I did what another reviewer suggested and I bought extra padding to add to the entire rack. You can use a "noodle" but I preferred the black plumbing pipe insulation. The rack is currently holding two 10' kayaks...a great space saver. I'm very happy with my purchase.

I use this to store 2 conventional 15' touring kayaks outside through all weather. It was easy to put together, has been stable through 2 "wind events" and the padding seems to be more than is necessary to keep my kayaks from getting scratched up. I expected the padding would fall apart outdoors, but it's help up very well. I can't say enough good things about this rack. =)
