Today, we're gonna be taking a look at the Malone foam block for kayaks. This foam block allows you to replace a loss or damaged block for the Malone roof top kayak carrier. Part number NPG152. You could also purchase multiple single blocks to create your own setup. This block can work with or without roof racks. You'll notice that the foam block features a universal cut out that's designed to fit round, square, oval, arrow, and elliptical cross bars.

Now, if you don't have a roof rack on your vehicle, this is safe to be placed directly on the roof of the vehicle. You just want to be careful not to place it on a sun roof. And then on the bottom, the block is gonna feature a skid proof laminate bottom for secure grip without damaging the vehicle's paint and finish. The block is strong and durable. It's made from the EVA closed cell foam construction.

You can see here how on the ends it's a little bit taller and it slopes to the center so that's gonna fit the hull or the shape of the bottom of the kayak. It's gonna allow it to conform for really safe and secure transport. Now, each block is gonna measure 18 inches long. The block is going to be sold individually. It's gonna measure 4 and 3 quarters of an inch wide, 3 and 3 quarters of an inch tall here at the end, and 3 inches tall here at the center. And the products made in the USA.

That's gonna do it for today's look at the Malone foam block for kayaks.

This was my first (and NOT last) order from etrailer.com. Someone had literally stolen my foam blocks for my kayak from my FRONT PORCH in broad daylight, and I had made plans to go kayaking with my daughter, and suddenly had no way to get my boat to the lake. I did an Internet search for the foam blocks and found etrailer.com. I ordered the blocks and paid for expedited shipping. The blocks arrived three days EARLIER than expected, in fact, they were overnighted, and were not only in perfect shape, but were nicer than the blocks I originally had....these having a non skid rubber surface where the block contacts the car top. I am VERY happy with the results of my order, and will certainly be ordering again, should the need arise.

- MPG158

These are perfect for my Eddyline kayak. They fit over my Malone Airflow2 crossbars pretty well. It was fairly difficult getting them onto the bars. I ended up using soapy water which helped a lot.

- MPG158

Works perfectly. Great that the holes to fit the roof bars are now shaped for modern, aerodynamic bars, instead of the old round ones.

- MPG158

They work well, one on a Thule square bar, the other on a flat rack. They conform slightly to the surfaces they touch, but are still firm, which I believe keeps them from moving around.

- MPG158

Worked great for my Toyota Highlander and wilderness system Tsunami 14'. Helped secure Yak with straps and create a more secure fit

- MPG158

Why would anybody buy expensive kayak saddles when this works perfectly? Excellent heavy-duty dense foam with a center channel that conforms perfectly on my oval Rhino Aero rack bars.

This foam block works as it should between kayak and vehicle roof. Not too soft. Doesn't move around.

What you see is what you get. Works well on my aero crossbars

Working really good so far......

Ask the Experts about this Malone Accessories and Parts

  • Will Malone MPG158 Foam Blocks Fit Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for Raised # TH7502-TH7503
    The Malone Foam Block for Kayaks # MPG158 is designed to work with round, square, oval, aero, and elliptical crossbars. I did go to our warehouse and pull the Malone block to measure. The width of the crossbar cutout in the foam block is 2-3/4" and is 1-1/2" in height from the cutout entrance to the end of the cavity. The Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack for Raised # TH7502-TH7503 for example are 3-1/8" wide x 1-1/8" tall so the foam block would not have adequate width but could be cut...

  • Weight Capacity of the Malone Foam Blocks for Kayaks
    Yes the capacity of the Malone Foam Block for Kayaks part # MPG158 is 50 lbs. per block. These will work out really well for your Catayak and I really like the solution you have come up with. They are designed to fit the bars of the Yakima Rock n Roll trailers like part # Y08106. They have a squared top in the slot cutout that allows them to stradle the bars perfectly. We designed the etrailer Cam Buckle Cinch Straps w/ Buckle Protectors part # E98876-4 for this exact reason. They...

  • Will Malone Foam Block for Kayaks # MPG158 Fit on Factory Crossbars of Honda CR-V
    Yes, the Malone Foam Block for Kayaks # MPG158 will fit on the factory crossbars of your Honda CR-V. The opening for the bars is a bit larger than you'd need but it would still fit and work well. For a strap set for the bow and stern you'd then want the part # MPG306 and you'd be set.

  • How to Use Rhino-Rack T-Load System to Transport Kayak on 2016 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The Rhino-Rack T-Load Hitch Mounted Load Assist and Support Bar # RTL002 that you referenced is designed to be used with an existing roof rack crossbar system or bare roof carrier, which aren't included with the kit. If you want to go with a more permanent setup to use with the T-Load the best route is with a crossbar system. If your Silverado has the Crew Cab I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Crossbar System that consists of # RRVA150S-2 for the two 59" Vortex Crossbars in Silver or...
