Get Kayative Roll-Aid



The foam-padded roller ensures protection for the boat’s hull while remaining out of the way on your dock or bulkhead. It can also serve as a tie-off for your boat if needed. It is easy to install; four screws hold it in place, and it’s well made and durable.

Of course we think the Roll-Aid is amazing, but don’t take it from us, read what our users have to say.

Using Roll-Aid for 12 foot Stand-Up Paddle Boards

Received my Roll-Aid today. Three comments (all good!):
1. Thank you for the quick turnaround!
2. Thanks for packing your product correctly!! SO tired of receiving things from Amazon smashed, crushed, broken, etc.
3. Recommendation – perhaps you want to advertise this product for Stand-up Paddle Boards as well as Kayaks…. we’re using it for our 12 foot stand-up boards. Perhaps you’ll increase your hits when folks are searching online.

I love the YAK-A-LAUNCHER™. My neighbors have all tried it and think it is great. Today my neighbor installed the Roll-Aid for me. He had to use his special drill since we were installing the cleats into concrete. We are in quite a drought and so I am rethinking my installation plans to accommodate the lower water levels. Long story short, I would like to purchase a 2nd Roll-Aid, if available.

Thanks for the exceptional service, packing and instructions. I appreciated the effort and care taken with your shipping prep.


Al, I just wanted you to know I received my Roll-aid yesterday and will install it tomorrow. I have to say it is an ingenious device and very well thought out. Also, your attention to packing and shipping is terrific. It has been a pleasure working with you! Stay well, be safe.

I want to thank you for your prompt and courteous service during our purchases, assemblies and installation of our YAK-A-LAUNCHER™ and Roll Aid. This equipment has made it easy for the initiated and our uninitiated guests to enter, exit and to store our kayaks. The system is well designed, highly functional and durable.
Thank you so much!

The Roll-Aid arrived this afternoon and we immediately put it on our dock! Your instructions were perfect and it went as smoothly as could be! We tested it out with both a kayak and our 18 foot canoe and it was wonderful! We are so grateful for this discovery and to work with you and your product. You have been great at customer service and we truly appreciated your integrity, concern, and your quality product. Now we’re thinking we might want a second one for the back of the dock on the opposite side. We’re going to give it a day or two to mull it over and we’ll let you know.
Thank you so much!
