Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Billy Good product with a flaw in the design
Storage unit was just the size I was looking for. The flaw in the design, in my opinion, was the actual wire shelf fits into the sturdy frame but is a good 1-1/2 inches below the top lip. If you're trying to retrieve something from the shelf, that 1-1/2" lift before pulling the object off the shelf is not a desirable option, especially if you're trying to do it without a ladder or step stool. Granted the lip retains whatever you're storing on the unit. My fix to the "flaw" was to build up the platform with material to make the shelf even with the lip. Now I can slide items on and off the shelf without the lift problem.
One additional design feature that may not be obvious until reading the instructions is the line up of the ceiling mounting bracket with the roof joists. If your joists run from side to side of the garage and you thought you'd mount the unit against one of the side walls.....the mounting bracket has to run parallel to the joist, thus your storage unit is 1-1/2 to 2 inches away from the wall. FYI

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Debbie2 Product is exactly as advertised and great for expanding storage space
The product was missing parts and it has been a nightmare to get them replaced. The staff at store was awesome but I am still waiting a MONTH later for the missing parts!!!

Well-made product, easy to assemble once you get the brackets mounted on the ceiling. Directions on locating and mounting brackets need better explanation - especially when you have wooden trusses that are 24" on center. You have to span the truss work with 2x6s from above or below the ceiling when your shelf location is between trusses.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Scott Decent product but mounting options are limited
This product does have a good weight capacity, is relatively simple to install, and looks OK in the garage. It's one drawback is that is cannot be installed cross-joist, it has to be installed so that the long side runs with the joists.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Connie I'm pleased with HyLoft ceiling storage.
My HyLoft storage units were exactly what I needed to organize my garage. It took a while to assemble and install but was worth the effort.
