Video Transcript for Malone Watersport Carriers MPG168 Review

Speaker 1: Today we're taking a look at the foam block for the Malone stacker style kayak carriers. This replaces a damaged block for the Malone Stax Pro kayak carrier. You can purchase this product in multiples, to create your very own setup. The unit does feature universal bottom cutouts. These are designed to fit round, square, oval, arrow, and elliptical crossbars. They simply provide the area for the crossbar to fit in between.

The full length slit on the bottom allows you to separate the block a little bit. That way you can easily fit it over your crossbar.Then right here on top, we have a nice, large curve, that's designed to fit most kayaks. When it comes to the construction of the block, it's constructed from a EVA, closed cell foam construction. Few dimensions to go over with you real quick. Starting with the overall length, measuring edge to edge, measures 8 inches long.

Overall width, measures about 4 inches wide. Overall height here, at the edge, about 3 1/4 inches. And then here at the center, you can see that measures about 2 1/2 inches tall. With this part number you get one block, and the unit is made in the USA. That's gonna do it for today's look at the foam block for the Malone stacker style kayak carriers..

Fits great on my aero-bar racks, and keeps my canoe totally protected while bumping down the road.


Fast delivery of the correct item.


I've been using the Rhino-Rack Nautic Stack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 for a few years. Sometimes the kayaks slip during loading/unloading depending on where I'm parked/wind/etc. These blocks are perfect for preventing this issue. Love e-trailer's videos and customer input. Thanks!


Great stock and quick shipping !


Good quality products


Received our 8" kayak blocks in good time with economy shipping. Product was exactly as described, fits our CR-V factory roof racks perfectly. I would definitely use eTrailer again. I also like their videos.


Product is great and fits awesome on manufacturers rails but does not fit snugly on the Thule aeroblade that is on my other vehicle. This will work on the aeroblade just flexes our on the bottom which may cause the foam to rip apart over the lifespan of the product.


I purchased these blocks to add to my crossbars. They fit the bill with regard to price and use. They are easy to place and remove.


I love my foam blocks. Easy on, Easy off and peace of mind that my roof isn't getting scratched up.


Great customer service. Timely shipping. Item as described. Very satisfied!


blocks look perfect and will workout fine for my needs. the shipping was very fast.
thank you for the blocks there great.


Great product, do they come any bigger and taller or more of a solid foam block....


They work as intended and fit my needs.


The foam blocks are great and I’ll order more in the next couple weeks.


These blocks appear to be of the same quality as the originals. I'll probably order another backup set as this is the only site I can find them.


Fits easily on my Explorer roof rack and fits my kayak perfectly.


Exactly as described!


This company is awesome. When they found out that my order would be delayed, they let me know immediately and offered a substitute item. I choose to wait for the original items and they stayed in contact with me, offering timelines when possible. Great communication/ great service!


works great



The block is still holding up and working.


Arrived in a timely manner, and the product is as advertised.


Thanks for the professional support and excellent service. Product was exactly as described and the shipping/communication process was flawless.


Product was as described and arrived on time. Thanks for the great service!


Great product. Awesome service!


Fast shipping and exactly what I needed. The product is in great condition and it was here in just a few days.


Nice dense foam, this will hold up for a long time.

  • Foam Block or Pad For Carrying Kayak on TracRac Ladder Rack
    We do have an option for a foam block as well as pads that will fit a TracRac ladder rack, though the block you mentioned won't fit around the wider TracRac bars. Instead, you can use the following, which are designed for truck ladder racks: - Malone Foam Kayak Block for Truck Racks # MPG159 The only other thing you will need are tie-downs such as the Malone Bow and Stern Tie-Down Kit # MPG306. I have added links below to video reviews for you to check out as well if you'd like to take...

    Yes, the Malone Foam Block # MPG168 that you referenced will fit the aero-style factory crossbars on your 2018 Subaru Impreza. This particular block is designed to be a replacement for one of the blocks included with the Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD.

  • How Can I Protect My Second Kayak From Getting Scratched When Using The Yakima JayLow?
    It's not a huge deal to not have a pad on the side of Jaylow # Y04073 carrier but this foam block # MPG168 probably isn't the best for that. I would get something like this pad # MPG380-25 so you can have one on each crossbar by the JayLow. This will prevent any scratches from happening to the second kayak on your roof. Be sure to check out the videos I've included for you!

  • Is There A Longer Tongue Kit Available for the Malone MicroSport Trailer?
    The tongue on the Malone Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G is 8' by itself and can be shortened using the Retractable Tongue Kit for Malone MicroSport Trailers # MPG494, which will reduce the overall length of the trailer from 13' to 9', however there is not an option to make the tongue longer. The only trailer that I was able to find that offers a tongue extension kit is the Yakima Rack and Roll Trailer # Y08107 in which you could use the Tongue Extension Kit for Yakima Rack and Roll...

  • Recommended Carrier for Transporting 4 Kayaks on 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD lists a 2 kayak capacity as determined by the manufacturer. You could technically add another kayak on each side of the posts by using some additional Foam Blocks # MPG168 but this hasn't been tested so I don't recommend doing this. As you mentioned this particular carrier features a 50 pound capacity per boat anyway so it would not work for your application. Your best option is going to be with the Thule Stacker # TH830, which features the...

  • Is There a Way to Convert a Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers to Post Style
    I do have an option for you, but we do not have a conversion kit for your Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers # MAL43FR. But, you can use the Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Roof Rack w/ Tie-Downs # MPG115MD. This will provide you with a post style carrier that will clamp onto the crossbars of your EcoLight trailer. The foam pads will fit around your bars to provide some cushion and protection for the kayaks. You can add additional foam blocks # MPG168 (x2) and tie-downs # MPG306...
