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.

Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops for Bow and Stern Tie-Downs - Qty 2 - MPG308

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (30 Customer Reviews)


The T-Style hood loops work excellently and are easy to use. Would recommend for piece of mind so that you don't need to tie down the kayak to metal under the car hood.


Not used them yet but they are great to tie down boats to vehicles!


So far so good. Product is easy to set up and instructions are easy to understand. Mounted on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with OEM crossbars. It feels sturdy and durable. I like the folding feature easy to raise and lower.


I can now load my 14' tandem kayak by myself. Excellent product.


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!


worked well and keep the kayaks safe when driving on the highway.


Great, easy way to secure my kayak. I have nothing to easily tie off to in the front of my vehicle, so being able to just close the hood on this and tie off to it is a great convenience.


Exactly what I needed to attach a bow tie down for my kayak. (My car's front tie-down loops were unfortunately removed, so I really needed something like this. Solid material, super secure.


The tie downs are fine. I like the inflatable roof rack for transporting my kayak, but take it off your car if it’s going to rain, because the rain flows down the straps and inside the car!


Hi haven't had a chance to use them the roof rack I ordered from you arrived damaged & I'm waiting for a update the anchors look very durable & I can't wait to use them!

Used it frequently carried 2 kayaks no issues A little noisey & I used the install numbers to start & then adjusted for a great fit I would recommend this carrier to a friend!
Joseph R - 06/07/2021


Very useful for both SUV hood and back hatch.


Excellent product. Easily installed


I have had these for 1 year now and have used them several times. They have worked exactly as advertised. Keeps my kayaks secure and once you have the process of mounting down it is pretty easy. Nice product.


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.


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.


Works great in 2019 Subaru Crosstrek


It's doing the job of securing my kayak to my prius that doesn't have front or back hooks.


Efficient. Cost effective great options and selection


Better than the Thule quick loops which are more then twice the price. I tried those as well.


worked as promised


Very simple to use. No need to look for hooks under the car anymore


Excellent product selection and customer service. Speedy delivery and follow up.




Easy to use, and they do the job quickl y.

  • Adding Tie Down Anchors to Secure a Kayak on a 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
    To answer your last question, I do have experience with this exact issue. A lot of people have run into this problem. It isn't always easy to find tie down points on a vehicle whether that vehicle is a 2015 Subaru Outback or a 1956 Rocket 88. But I have an excellent solution for you. You can use the Malone Hood Loops, # MPG308. You won't have to remove any bolts, just close the cylinder under the hood (away from anything that gets hot of course!) and the other in the rear hatch.

  • 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.

    I have the perfect solution for you! The Malone T-Style Hood Loops # MPG308 were designed for vehicles like your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon where it is difficult to find tie-down points. If you check out the attached photos you can see how another customer utilized some loops like these to secure their canoe to the roof of their 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon.

  • Easy Way to Tie Off Kayak Bow and Stern on a 2010 Subaru Outback
    There might be a place under your 2010 Subaru Outback to tie off a kayak but I have a better option for you. You can use the Malone Hood Loops, # MPG308. You close the cylinder under the hood and rear hatch and tie off the bow and stern to the strap loops that will be on the outside of the vehicle. I have linked a video featuring these Hood Loops for you.

  • Does Location Matter When Using Hood Loops To Secure Kayak On 2011 Toyota Prius
    As long as the Malone Hood Loops # MPG308 are in the trunk or hood cavity and away from anything moving or hot, they will hold the bow or stern of the kayak secure. These are made of a sturdy nylon webbing. As far as where in the trunk or under the hood they are placed, as long as the tie-down can be cinched securely, the location would not really matter. I have attached a link to a video that shows the Hood Loops being used you can check out.

    The best option for your heavy Old Town fishing kayak is from Malone: - Malone MegaWing Fishing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG207 The MegaWing # MPG207 has a 150 lb capacity, and is the best option because it is the only carrier that has the needed capacity to carry your Old Town that weighs just over 90 lbs.

    There is one option for a saddle style kayak carrier that is going to both fit your 2015 Subaru Outback and have the 90 lb capacity you need, which is from Malone: - Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG110MD I verified with Malone that the SaddleUp Pro # MPG110MD fits your '15 Outback, and has a 90 lb capacity, so it meets both those criteria. It will also work with the width of your kayak so you're all set in regards to those specifics. But more than just technically...

  • 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...

I also confirmed with Thule that the Hull-A-Port is a fit for the factory crossbars of your Outback so you'll be set to hit the water.

I've added links to video reviews of both parts for you to check...

    I have a solution for you, but I checked with Chevy and they were unable to provide the size of the bolt that fits this hole. They also mentioned that it's going to be vehicle specific, so we would not have any type of D-ring that you could use in its place. The best option for you is going to be the Malone Hood Loops for Bow/Stern Tie Downs #MPG308. These install quickly and easily in your rear cargo gate and under the front hood and won't leave anything hanging off your front bumper...

  • How Do I Secure A Kayak To My Roof When There Are No Anchor Points On The Front Of My Vehicle?
    The Yakima SweetRoll Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04074 can be attached to basically any sturdy hooking point on the front of your vehicle. I took a look at the front end of the 2021 Kia Telluride and I agree that there appears to be no good hooking point for the kayak tie-down straps to attach to. Luckily, there is a solution. You can simply use Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops for Bow and Stern Tie-Downs - Qty 2 # MPG308. This comes with two T-style loops; one can be installed under...

You could also look at the Thule Hood Loops # TH529 that attach to a bolt under the hood and stay there when not in use. I have attached videos of both products for you to check out.

They do not come with the Stacker. What you would do is use the tie downs included with the carrier. They have hooks on the end that you can hook to the trailer frame or anywhere that is convenient.
