Video Transcript for Malone Watersport Carriers MPG159 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone foam kayak block for truck racks. This unit can be used to replace a damaged block. You could also get multiple of these foam blocks to create your own set up. We do recommend that at least two blocks are used to safely haul one kayak. You'll notice that it has the oversize cut out that fits most extruded aluminum crossbars on truck bed ladder racks. Edge to edge going this direction, that cut out or that opening is going to measure around four inches. Going this direction it's going to measure about one and five eighths of an inch. It's a really nice design.

It's got the slit in the bottom so that way you can easily fit this over the truck bed ladder rack. When it comes to the construction, it's an EVA closed cell foam construction. And it features a nice contoured design that's going to fit the shape of your kayak. When it comes to the overall dimensions, starting with the overall length measuring edge to edge, that's going to give us a measurement of around 14 inches long. When it comes to the width, edge to edge in this direction, that's going to give us a measurement of about five and a half inched wide. Here at the end it's going to measure about four inches tall. And then at the center, at the lowest point of that contoured design, it's going to be about three and one quarter inches tall. You're going to get one block with this part number, and it is made in the USA. That's going to do it for today's look at the Malone foam kayak block for truck racks..

I purchased the closed cell foam kayak pads from Malone to fit my Trac Rack ladder rack. It was not easy to locate a pad to fit the wide bars of this rack but, searching etrailers website I was able to do just that. The pads are good solid foam that is quite sturdy. On our first trip with them on I couldn't have been happier with their performance, 1,000 miles round trip and the pads didn't move at all. I would recommend these to anyone with wide bars on a rack that needs to carry kayaks. 664659

I have a Tacoma with very wide TracRac truck rack crossbars. Was looking for a way to transport my kayaks on those crossbars without damaging them. Kyle S at etrailer was the only one who provided me with accurate info regarding what would fit those crossbars - I received totally wrong info from some major kayak rack suppliers. I ordered from etrailer and in the process realized that their customer service is outstanding. I received the kayak blocks a few days after ordering them. They fit perfectly and are a quality product. etrailer should be your first choice when shopping for kayak racks and for whatever other products they carry. 424004

I use a TracRac to transport two kayaks over a truck bed filled with bicycles. First time I found a foam block that fits very well on the rack. I have coupled this product with latch strap also from etrailer.com that fits the TracRac. Quick and excellent service from online order to product delivery. 466478

Exactly as described and fit the cross bars of my Thule Xsporter pro rack for Kayaks. Perfect. 510070

These foam pads worked great on my 1000 mile trip down into Baja. I bought 4 pads to secure two ocean kayaks. The pads are mounted on a TracRac TracONE Universal Truck Rack that is on my 2003 Toyota Tundra. 593258

I was looking for kayak pads to use with Yakima Jetstream load bars. I purchased these blocks to modify and fit as well as possible. The opening was too wide /high for the profile shape of the bars, and needed shimming (I glued pieces of foam pipe insulation in to take up some space). The gray foam is softer than most blocks. It will cut with scissors and roughly shave with a Surform tool. The softness will make them more susceptible to cuts and dings, but will also conform to my kayak better. Overall a workable solution. 477938

I ordered the canoe foam racks on November 14 and they were delivered November 16th. I live in Hawaii so I didn't expect the racks to ship and arrive so quickly. Thank you so much for a great job! 726313

Great product. Works perfect for the Thule Tracrac to haul kayaks on my 2016 F350 713988

These work really great for carrying my fishing kayak on my truck. The Malone foam blocks fit perfectly on my Thule truck rack. Whenever I take my kayak camping, I install the foam blocks on the rack, lift my kayak on top and strap it down to the rack. This allows me to put my bicycles and all other camping gear in the truck bed. 697953

I sent a request on this product to confirm that it would fit my rack. The guys at etrailer checked it out, and let me know that it did. I ordered 4 of them and they work perfectly. Shipping was reasonable and quick with no issues. Will do business with them again! K 694579

Product is as stated, fit on the TracRac like a glove. Had Etrailer express mail them to me for a trip I am taking actually received them a day earlier then thought. 690007



- MPG159
by:

As advertised. Fit my Trac Rac which most products in the category do not. Not sure how long they will hold up but perfect on the first use. Do not risk tearing by stretching them on like you are opening a bag of chips. Roll one side on and slide a finger towards the middle to gently pull out any parts that are catching. Comes off easier than on. Should fit right over most racks but if you have a larger rack like Trac Rac it will work as long as you take your time. 683713

Exactly what I needed to fit my Thule Trac One to support my Kayak. Others I had found only fit "factory" type racks with narrow cross bars. Shipping and delivery were handled very quickly. Couldn't have asked for more. Thank you. Terry K in Michigan 680349

Perfect for the tracrac one system. Another cheaper option to consider would be giant pool noodles with zip strips. 555875

Exactly what I needed. They fit like a glove and the kayaks rode without a hitch. Snugged them down and they didn't move, or make any noise at all. I didn't even know they were up there. Now I have the kayaks on top the bikes in the bed of the truck and I am pulling the camper. Alaska here I come!!! 529123

have order four pcs and found them to be as described. was able to build my own Kayak roof top mounts for my Expedition for two 10 ft Kayaks mounted upside down for better aerodynamics along with better stability at 70+ mph. No whistle, no drag, no vibration, and much better gas mileage. got very quick delivery on products. would order from this company anytime. 441075

Ask the Experts about this Malone Accessories and Parts

Do you have a question about this Accessories and Part?


  • Kayak Carrier That Works With TracRac Ladder Rack
  • There is a solution which is going to help save your kayaks from any further damage. To mount them on your TracRac TA27000-01 I recommend using the Malone Foam Kayak Block # MPG159. These are going to fit directly over the four-inch bars on your Trac-Rac, and you would need two of them per kayak. For tie-downs you would want to use the Malone Bow and Stern Tie-Down Kit # MPG306. I've added links to review videos on both of these products for you.

  • Recommendation for a Kayak Carrier That Will Fit a TracRac Ladder Rack
  • I have a solution for you, but J-hook style Kayak carriers like the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier # S512 cannot fit the 4 inch wide crossbars that are on the TracRac Ladder Racks. The Rhino-Rack carrier can fit up to 3-1/2 inch wide crossbars. A foam block like the Malone Foam Block for Kayaks, # MPG159, can fit the bars of a TracRac ladder rack and allow you to mount 1 kayak per set of blocks. The Malone blocks are sold a piece, so you will need two for one kayak. I also recommend...

  • TracRac Ladder Rack Kayak Carrier Recommendation
  • TracRac ladder racks have very thick crossbars compared to standard roof rack crossbars. The only style of kayak carrier we offer that fits that bar shape is the Malone Foam Kayak Carrier # MPG159 which would would be a great option for you. For a tie down kit then we have the part # MPG306.

  • How To Secure A Kayak To The Thule Xsporter Pro Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • I do have a recommendation for you, however, Yakima does not make an adapter for the Yakima HullHound Kayak Saddles w/ Tie-Downs part Y04079 that will allow them to work with the Thule Xsporter Pro Adjustable Height Truck Bed Ladder Rack part # TH500XT. In order to secure a kayak to the Xsporter crossbars, I recommend using a set of tie down straps like the Erickson Cam Buckle Tie-Down Straps part # 05605 and foam blocks like the Malone Foam Kayak Block for Truck Racks part # MPG159...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Fitting TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars
  • The best way to carry kayaks on a TracRac ladder rack is using the Rhino Rack Nautic 580 Side Loading Kayak Carrier # RR580 which fits in the top channel of a TracRac SR ladder rack like what you have. The foam block solution part # MPG159 also fits the bars too but the Nautic will give a more secure solution. This also comes with the needed straps to secure the kayak as well. I also attached a review video link for more info as well.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation to Fit Thule TracRac Ladder Rack Crossbars
  • The Malone Foam Block Kayak Carrier part # MPG159 is designed to fit the larger crossbar dimensions of the TracRac ladder racks. The blocks have a slit on the bottom of them so they will slide over the bars and not require you to remove the bars to install the blocks. A set of retractable ratchet straps like the # IMF103745 would be a great choice for this as well. This is the only style of kayak carrier we offer that will fit the larger bar diameters of the TracRac Ladder racks.

  • Will Malone Kayak Foam Block Fit TracRac G2 Crossbars
  • Malone doesn't list a maximum crossbar size for the Foam Kayak Block # MPG159 so I went out to our warehouse to actually test fit the block onto a TracRac crossbar, which is indeed larger than standard crossbars. I found that the block fits perfectly with even some room to spare, so there wasn't any issue getting it onto the bar. The foam block simply gets wrapped around the crossbar using the pre-cut gap on the underside. It's simply a matter of manipulating the bottom lip with your...

  • Which Kayak Carrier Can Fit Thicker Load Bars of TracRac Kayak Carrier
  • The load bars of the TracRac Ladder Rack part # TH43002XT-501 that you referenced are much bigger than standard load bars found on roof racks. You'd need to use the Malone kayak carrier foam pad part # MPG159 as it can fit the bars of a TracRac ladder rack and allow you to mount 1 kayak per set of blocks. I also recommend using the Malone Bow and Stern Tie-Down Kit, # MPG306. This kit will include 2 straps to secure both the bow and stern of one kayak.

  • Strap Recommendation for Use with Malone Foam Block Kayak Carrier
  • The Yakima ratcheting Bow and Stern tie downs, # Y04031, work well with the Malone Ladder Rack foam blocks part # MPG159. The straps are 12 feet long and have a weight capacity of 150 lbs.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Fitting Crossbars of Erickson Ladder Rack # EM07705
  • We have a set of foam blocks that will fit the larger ladder rack crossbars as the Malone Foam Carrier part # MPG159 but we do not have a J-style carrier that will fit the Erickson ladder rack part # EM07705.

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for Reese Towpower TransRACK Workmate Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • Since the Reese Towpower TransRACK Workmate Truck Bed Ladder Rack # RP7063500 has a substantially higher capacity at 800 lbs than a standard roof rack standard roof rack kayak carrier won't be able to fit over the thicker crossbars. The foam block kayak carrier part # MPG159 can fit the thicker ladder rack crossbars though. These are sold individually. For a tie down kit we then have the part # MPG306.
    view full answer...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation that Can Accomodate Crossbar that is 1-1/2 inch Tall
  • 1.5 inch tall crossbars are going to be too tall for our j-style kayak carriers to attach to. We do have a foam block style of kayak carrier that can fit a taller bar though as the Malone kayak carrier # MPG159.
    view full answer...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation for TracRac Ladder Rack
  • The Malone foam block style kayak carrier part # MPG159 that you referenced is the only style of kayak carrier we offer that will fit the wider crossbars of the TracRac ladder racks.
    view full answer...

  • Kayak Carrier Recommendation to Fit Larger Crossbars of TracRac SR Sliding Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • The TracRac crossbars are much thicker than standard roof rack crossbars so it gets difficult to fit a kayak carrier to them but we do have the Malone Foam Blocks part # MPG159 which are designed for the larger bar size. You'd need two of these blocks and then a set of bow and stern straps like part # MPG306 and you'd be set.
    view full answer...

  • Foam Block Kayak Carrier Recommendation for MaxxTow Ladder Rack # MT70423
  • Yes, the Malone Foam Blocks part # MPG159 are designed to fit the larger crossbar size that your MaxxTow ladder rack part # MT70423 has and will work well. You'll need a quantity of 2 of these plus the strap kit part # MPG306 and you'd be set!

  • Kayak Carrier Options that Can Fit TracRac Truck Bed Ladder Rack
  • The load bars of the TracRac ladder racks are much thicker than standard roof rack crossbars which allows them to have the higher weight capacity but also is what prevents roof rack accessories that need to wrap around the bar from fitting. But the kayak carrier solutions that fit into the top channel of crossbars like the Rhino Rack Nautic 580 # RR580 will work so this would be your best solution. We do have one foam block solution that can fit around the TracRac load bars with the...
