Video Transcript for Malone QuickLash T-Style Bow and Stern Tie-Down Hood Loops Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone Quick Latch T-style hood loops for bow and stern tie-downs, part number MPG308. So once you have your kayak in place and you have it strapped down to the roof rack system, you do need bow and stern tie-downs for each end.However, if you don't have any tie-down points underneath or you don't have a hitch in installed in the back, one of the options you can utilize is the quick latch hood loop. So pretty much what these do is create tie-down points for the hooks of your bow and stern tie-downs and they have an end cap on the inside which is closed inside your hatch of your hood or the hatch of your trunk while you tie these down.The end caps are made from a polypropylene and are injection molded to this T-shape for superior fit and durability. This has a load capacity of 150 pounds, come in a quantity of two, and has a one year warranty.When comparing this to other products, two that come up are going to be the Rhino-Rack anchor strap, part number RRRBAS and the Thule Quick Lubes, part number TH530.As far as the most economical choice, that's going to go to the Malone. As far as quantity is concerned, that's going to go to both the Malone and the Thule as it comes with two hood loops or two loops with the Rhino-Rack strap only coming with one.As far as durability is concerned, that's going to go to the Malone as it's made from a harder material.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's go ahead and show you how they work. We have our two hood loops here on our table.

This is pretty much what you're goin got get with the kit once you buy it.First, to install these, at least for our front portion of our tie-down, we're going to have to pop the hood open. With our hood open we have to find a good spot for our quick lash to set into place. We found that this area here will work just as long as it's in a spot where it's not going to get crushed by the hood.So with that in place we can now close our hood and our front quick lash is installed. Now we'll do the same at the rear. Again, making sure we're to putting it directly on the hatch, set it inside and we'll close our hatch on it and now we have our tie-down here as well.With everything in place, now we can attach our bow and stern tie-downs with no problem.

And there you have it for the Malone quick lash T-style hood loops for bow and stern tie-downs, part number MPG308.

These are great. New Toyota Highlander has no hooks for tie down. They really work very well and are easy to put on and off. 634431

e.trailer as always is a great place to get boating accessories, including kayaking and canoeing, and I go there first before REI or other websites. Website and transactions are excellent, and shipping is fast. The online email included a PDF and two UTube videos of how to use my hood tie downs. This show some real thought to after purchase help for customers. 604953

I had no good place to tie down the bow of my kayak when mounted on my Suburban. The Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops fit perfectly under my hood and showed no signs of weakness! 517111


Ask the Experts about this Malone Accessories and Parts

  • Can Two Kayaks Be Secured with One Set of Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops Part # MPG308
    Yes, you can secure two kayaks to the Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops part # MPG308. I have attached a photo to show how the Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops are used as well but the photo is only with one kayak. You may want to center the hook more if used with two kayaks. I called Malone to confirm this.

  • How To Secure a Wenonah Spirit II Canoe On a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I do have some options for you but the Load Stops for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRRLH2 that you referenced are not going to be sufficient to secure your Wenonah Spirit II Canoe because they don't offer enough support/stability. This canoe is going to require a much more secure carrier for which I recommend using the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG112MD which will fit your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars. The Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier has...

  • Kayak Carrier for 2016 Honda CR-V with OEM Roof Rack Crossbars
    You are correct. For your factory crossbars on the CR-V you can use foam blocks like the Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 12" Long # MPG154 which will give you the components you need to secure the kayak as well. For a better hold, I recommend using a J-style carrier with your factory bars like the Swagman Contour Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs - Fixed Arms - J-Style - Universal Mount # S65148. This is much better if you will be doing highway driving...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2016 Ford Explorer with Sunroof and Roof Rails
    The weight capacity of most of the roof racks is 165 pounds but you're going to be limited by the capacity of your Explorer's roof. I took a look at an online copy of your owner's manual and it states that you're limited to only 45 pounds with the moonroof. Check your printed copy to verify. If it's correct then you'll only be able to carry about 30 pounds on a roof rack because most racks are roughly 15 pounds or so. If you can carry kayaks on your 2016 Ford Explorer that has flush...

  • Carrier for 2 Kayaks on 2019 Subaru Crosstrek with Factory Roof Rack
    It's likely going to fit just fine but I checked with Thule and they haven't tested the Hull-A-Port XT, part # TH848, on the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek as of yet so I can't say with certainty. It does fit the 2018 and the 2019 is the same generation so that's a good sign. A similar kayak carrier is the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073. It is confirmed, by Yakima, to fit the 2019 Crosstrek and will also carry both your kayaks. I've linked videos on both of the carriers. With either of...

  • Availability of Foam Block Kayak Carrier Compatible with Square Profile Crossbars
    Although there are still a few square profile crossbars available, many are getting away from them slowly because the aero-style are much quieter. A block system like the Malone # MPG162 is compatible with both square and aero-profile bars. Once the kayaks are strapped down to the roof rack and at the bow and stern, it doesn't really matter what profile the blocks are compatible with, because the force of the straps holding the kayaks in place will prevent the blocks from moving. I found...

  • Easiest Way To Load Two Kayaks on a 2011 Toyota Sienna
    The best option I have for you to easily load two kayaks on top of your 2011 Toyota Sienna is going to be with the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier and TelosXL Load Assist w/ Tie-Downs part # MPG114MD-351XL and the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG114MD. The reason that this is the best system for you is because it allows for one person, no matter their height or strength to easily load a kayak onto the roof of even the tallest vehicles. When Malone was here for...

  • Using the Thule Hull-A-Port XT on a 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The Thule Hull-A-Port XT, part # TH848, is a great pick for the 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon and is a confirmed fit for the factory crossbars. If you don't have the factory installed crossbars, the AeroBlade Edge kit will give you an easy load onto the vehicle, letting you avoid having to hike the kayak around the ends of the bars. This kit consists of: AeroBlade Edge Bars, Silver, part # TH7601-TH7601 or Black, part # TH7601B-TH7601B AeroBlade Edge Fit Kit, part # THKIT4063 You...

  • How to Determine if Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier is Compatible with 2019 Hobie Outback
    The Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX is design to carry a watercraft with the gunwales down. If you choose to load it on the hull or an additional carrier then that is your choice. I really don't think you'd be able to get another carrier to fit like you are thinking though. We don't have a fit guide for which watercraft fit with this carrier but I can give you some dimensions that you can use to determine if your 2019 Hobie Outback is compatible or not. This...

  • Using 2 Yakima ShowDown Kayak Carriers on a 78 Inch Thule Square Bar on a 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan
    This will be an extremely tight fit, but you should be able to put two Yakima ShowDowns, part # Y04081 on a pair of Thule 78 inch crossbars equipped to your 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan. If you actually have a set of 80 inch bars, you won't have any trouble. Prior to installing, be sure to verify your vehicle's roof capacity with your owner's manual or manufacturer. This capacity will include the weight of the rack, both carriers and the kayaks you are planning on carrying. Based on my...

  • Recommended Fishing Kayak Carrier for 2007 Honda Civic SI
    The SportRack Foam Block Roof Kayak Carrier - Adjustable # SR5527 is an economic way to transport a kayak on a naked roof but it isn't the most ideal for highway travel. My recommendation for your naked roof is to us the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with GTX Mounting System for Naked Roofs # 59759 and then use the Malone MegaWing Sit-On-Top Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - V-Style - Clamp On # MPG207 designed for use with fishing kayaks that are a little heavier and wider than traditional...

  • Does Thule Kayak Stacker Fit on Factory Crossbars of 2018 Subaru Outback
    Thule confirmed that the Kayak Stacker, part # TH830, does fit the factory crossbars on your 2018 Subaru Outback; however, if your kayak is over 10 feet long you want to use the Hull-A-Port XT, part # TH848, instead. Both carriers include tie-down straps to connect the kayak to the carrier as well as 2 more for the bow and stern. I recommend adding the Malone QuickLash Loops, part # MPG308, to make the bow and stern connections easier.

  • Can the Thule Hullavator be Used to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2019 Toyota Highlander XLE
    I do have a way that you can carry 2 kayaks on your 2019 Toyota Highlander but when I checked out the online version of the owner's manual on page 204 it states not to exceed 165 lbs of weight on the roof rack. Since your 2 kayaks have a combined weight of 130 lbs and the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 weighs right at 40 lbs that puts you at 170 lbs which is over the weight rating for your Highlander. The best solution for you is the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier and TelosXL Load Assist...

  • Carrying a Kayak on a 2007 Honda Civic Sedan
    For your 2007 Honda Civic, you'll want to keep it simple, as the height of the car means there's no reason to go with bigger, expensive load assist carriers. Since it sounds like you are just looking to carry a kayak, a simple, easy to remove roof rack is the best pick. Prior to using the roof rack, you'll want to verify your roof capacity with your owner's manual or manufacturer. This capacity will include the weight of the kayak, carrier and roof rack, and will be limited by the lowest...

  • Malone AirFlow2 and Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier Compatibility on a 2010 Subaru Forester
    I went out to our warehouse and tested the Malone AirFlow2, part # MPG215 and the Thule Hull-A-Port J-Style Kayak Carrier, part # TH834 together to see if it fit. I have a picture attached of the resulting fit. They did go together well and did not have wiggle between the carrier and the base thanks to the Hull-A-Port's universal mounting feet. Purchasing the Malone QuickLash Hood Loops, part # MPG308 is a good way to increase the stability of your kayak carrier by improving how...

  • Saddles with Locks for a 95 Pound Kayak on a 2016 GMC Acadia
    Your best bet is actually the saddle mounts. Unfortunately, there's no good J-Style racks that are locking and will have the weight capacity for your kayak. Saddle mounts directly transfer the weight to the bars, so they are a lot easier for fitting heavier kayaks. I have two saddle-style recommendations for you that include locking features and can support the weight of your kayak. The first is the Inno Locker, part # INA446. This is a strap-down carrier that will carry the kayak...

  • SportRack Roof Rack to Fit the 2013 Nissan Juke
    Your 2013 Nissan Juke isn't a long vehicle by any means but it does have plenty of space to mount the SportRack roof rack, part # SR1010. So you don't need the short-roof adapter, part # SR1116, like some vehicles do. According to the roof rack's installation details, which I've linked on this page for you, the front crossbar should sit 10 inches towards the windshield from the door seam (measurement A) and the rear crossbar sits 26 inches behind the front crossbar (measurement B).

  • 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon Kayak Racks for Factory Roof Rack Systems
    For the 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon, I recommend the Malone DownLoader, part # MPG114MD. This is a flexible, J-Style rack that installs quickly onto your crossbars, and folds flat for when you don't have time to pull it off immediately. The carrier also includes small load-assist ramps on both J's of the carrier, helping support at least a little weight of the kayak as you get it onto the roof of your vehicle. Additionally, the DownLoader can support kayaks up to 36 inches wide, so you...

  • Recommended Roof Rack with Bike and Kayak Carriers on a 2017 Mazda 3 with Fixed Mountig Points
    We do have black roof racks that install into the fixed mounting points on your 2017 Mazda 3 that don't use the clamps around the door frames. Although, you're correct that all of them stick out passed the feet so they aren't the OEM look you're trying to get. The rack I recommend is a Yakima system with their 50 inch JetStream bars which uses: 50 inch JetStream Crossbars # Y00425 SkyLine Towers # Y00148 Landing Pad 11 # Y00233 I've linked a video of the SkyLine towers being...

  • Putting Two 10 Foot Kayaks on a 2013 Honda Odyssey
    For your 2013 Honda Odyssey, I recommend two of the Malone J-Loader, part # MPG118MD. This J-Style Rack will help you load the kayak up onto the vehicle with the integrated ramps, helping to support some of the weight. The J-loader also includes a complete boat, bow and stern tie down kit. You can add some quick upgrades to the kit with the Malone SpeedLash, part # MPG309 and Quick-Loop, part # MPG308. The Speed Lash kit uses a pulley system to make the bow/stern tie down process...

  • Kayak Rack for 2018 Subaru Outback Limited with Factory Roof Rack
    The Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073, is a great J-style carrier that fits the factory crossbars on your 2018 Subaru Outback. All of the tie-downs are included. I like the JayLow because it can be folded down when you're not using it and it can also be adapted to carry two kayaks if you ever need it. They aren't required but I like to recommend the Malone QuickLash hood loops, part # MPG308, to make the tie-down connections easier. For another option look at the Lockrack carrier, part...

  • Kayak Carrier and Roof Rack for a 2017 Nissan Rogue
    For carrying a Kayak on almost any vehicle, I recommend aero style bars, as their width is a better platform for the shape of the kayak. For a rack kit, I recommend the RhinoRack Vortex Aero kit, consisting of: Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, 49 inches long, Silver, part # RRVA126S-2, or Black, part # RRVA126B-2 Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs for Vortex bars, part # RRRLKVA DK Fit Kit for 2500 Legs, part # DK396 This provides you with a solid rack for your vehicle.

  • Recommended Way To Carry Two Kayaks on a 2019 Subaru Outback
    The best way to carry two kayaks on the roof of your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon would be with two sets of j-style carriers. For this, I recommend the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD (2) which has folding uprights that you can lay flat while no kayaks are attached and you can add the Telos XL Load Assist part # MPG351XL if you need help loading the kayaks. The reason you will want to use a set of j-style carriers is because they will be the easiest to load and take your kayaks...

  • Size of Mounting Brackets on the Malone Downloader Kayak J-Rack
    The Malone Download, part # MPG114MD , will definitely fit the width of your bars, as they have a 3-1/2 inch opening, but to get the height, you'll need to use the included 70 mm bolts to make up the difference if they're thicker than 1 inch. The Download can handle up to 1-3/4 inch thick crossbars when using the larger included bolts. I recommend also purchasing a kit of Malone Quick Lash T loops, part # MPG308 to add easy to use mounting points to your hood and trunk for the bow and...

  • Using Lockrack Watersport Carrier on 2019 Subaru Outback Limited with 2016 Hobie Mirage Outback
    The Lockrack Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX will work on your 2019 Subaru Outback. I checked with the manufacturer and they confirmed that it will work on the factory crossbars with your 2019 Subaru Outback. This is an awesome rack and it won't have any issues carrying your Hobie Mirage Outback, but since it's rather long, you may want to consider using something similar to # MPG309 and # MPG308 to secure both ends of the kayak for some added security when traveling long distances.

  • How to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2018 Subaru Impreza
    My favorite kayak carrier to recommend for two kayaks is the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073. It's a J-style carrier for one boat but converts to a post style to carry two. It's not the only carrier that works this way but it has a higher weight capacity than the others since it can carry a total of 110 pounds. You do need additional tie-downs for the second boat. Use part # Y04031. The JayLow also has the option of having lock cores added, part # Y07202. I also recommend adding...

    I do believe that you are correct in that your canoe may be too wide for the single rubber piece on the Lockrack Watersport Carrier # 339LR65LASET. Thankfully Lockrack has their Adjustable Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX which comes with universal mounting options (both brackets and T-Bolts) so this carrier will definitely work with your Old Town Saranac 154 Square stern canoe. I reached out to my contact at Lockrack who not only confirmed this but also said that if you have anything...

  • Weight Capacity for a Kayak Carrying Roof Rack System on a 2015 Nissan Rogue
    Roof rack systems are always limited by the weakest point, be it the rack or the vehicle roof. In your case, 150 pounds is about the same as most roof systems, so you'll have a lot of options with your rack. I tend to recommend aero bars for these applications because they support the weight more evenly than other bar types because of their width. For your vehicle I recommend the Rhino Rack Vortex kit, consisting of: Rhino Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars, 46 inches, part # RRVA118B-2 Rhino...

This will work well with the SportRack Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Roof Mount # SR5513 which is rated for a kayak up to 17 feet long and up to 36 inches wide with a maximum weight of 75 lbs. This combination will work very well for your vehicle...

My research shows that your RAV4 is rated for 100 pounds on its roof, though you'll want to verify with your owner's manual the exacts of your configuration. For a carrier, I recommend the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073. This carrier includes small side ramps to assist with loading the kayak onto the vehicle, and also folds...
