Really well made - a bit heavy but confidence building for hoisting a 67 kayak. 880337

Telos XL loader came today, even tho my projected reception was in september. It makes it a lot easier to get my kayak on the roof of my Yukon, which probably will translate to more kayaking. Thanks for prompt service and good products! 869757

Ask the Experts about this Malone Accessories and Parts

  • What Load Assist Can be Used with Thule J-Style Kayak Carrier
    For use with your Thule J-style kayak carriers we have the Rhino Rack load assist part # RR-RUSL that will work great and make loading the kayaks easier, but the Malone Telos XL Load Assist part # MPG351XL that you referenced only can be used on the Malone carriers # MPG114MD and # MPG118MD. The Rhino Rack # RR-RUSL allows you to lean the kayak on it and then lift bottom up and in doing so brings the kayak to the same height of the crossbars which will make sliding the boat onto the...

  • Assisted Kayak Carrier Recommendation Over Malone Telos
    The Telos part # MPG351XL that you referenced can only be used with the Malone Downloader carrier part # MPG114MD or the # MPG118MD. Now that said if you are going to spend that type of money I'd much rather recommend you the Thule Hullavator part # TH898 as it works much better and is easier to use as well. Check out the review video I attached for this for you to check out as well.

  • Availability of the Regular Malone Load Assist for J-Style Kayak Carriers
    The Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module # MPG351XL actually replaced the regular Malone Load Assist (part MPG351) which is now discontinued. Since this is the case you will want to use the TelosXL.

  • Load Assist to Help Load a Kayak on the Roof of a Toyota Prius with Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack
    The Malone Telos kayak loading system # MPG351XL attaches in a specific way that is only compatible with the Malone J-style kayak carriers but I do have an option for you. You can use the Rhino-Rack universal load assist # RR-RUSL. It is compatible with the Thule AeroBlade bars you have on your Prius. Basically you will rest one end of the kayak on the load assist so you only have to lift one side which will be about half the weight. I have linked a video showing how it works. For...

  • Will Malone DownLoader Fit Aero Crossbars on a 2014 Subaru Forester
    The Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG114MD is designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars so it should fit the aero style crossbars on your 2014 Subaru Forester. The Malone AirFlow2 crossbars are 3" wide x 1" tall and the DownLoader will fit this so you can use these dimensions as a reference plus if you have the T-slots on your crossbars you can use the Fit Kit # MPG6604 and not have to worry about the clamps fitting at all. If you...

  • Comparing Malone J-Style Kayak Carriers
    You're correct the J-Pro2, part # MPG117MD, is a newer model of the J-Pro, part # MPG116MD. The difference between the two is the J-Pro2 has more padding to protect the kayaks. Other than that and the color they're basically the same. The J-Loader, part # MPG118MD, goes a little further to add the ramps which help with loading. You slide the kayak up and over the ramps helping to guide it in place instead of having to lift it over the ends of the carrier like with the J-Pro and J-Pro2....

  • Cost Effective Way to Carry a Kayak on a 2009 Subaru Forester
    In order to carry a kayak on the roof of your 2009 Subaru Forester you are going to need a roof rack and kayak carrier. The most cost effective roof rack we have for you is going to be dependent on whether or not you have a bare roof or raised side rails. If you have a bare roof then I recommend the Rhino-Rack # RRVA126S-2, # RRRLKVA, and # DK186 which uses custom clip mounting and comes with aero crossbars. If you have raised side rails then I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part...

  • What Kayak Carriers Can be Used with Malone Kayak Carrier Load Assist
    The Malone load assist part # MPG351XL that you referenced can only be used with Malone kayak carriers. Either with the DownLoader part # MPG114MD or the J-Loader part # MPG118MD. They can't be used with the Thule rack you have now so if you wanted to use it you'd need to replace the carriers as well.

  • How To Carry Both a Hobie Mirage Outback and a Hobie Compass Kayak
    I have a great option for you to carry both a Hobie Mirage Outback Kayak and a Hobie Compass Kayak. In order to do so you will need to use a j-style carrier for the Compass and a saddle style carrier for the Mirage Outback. The reason for this is because you will not have enough space to carry both hull down and the Mirage Outback is too heavy to carry on the side. I recommend the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD for the Compass and the Malone MegaWing Sit-On-Top Kayak...

  • Easily Removable Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier Setup for 2019 Honda Pilot
    If you are having OEM flush roof side rails installed on your 2019 Pilot you can use any profile of aftermarket crossbar (round, square, aero or elliptical) since the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD fits any bar shape. By the way their Telos Load Assist # MPG351XL measures just under 59-inches long when retracted. All roof racks for this flush rail configuration are shown on the linked page. Roof racks for the flush rail setup are not really intended for repeated installation...

  • Recommended Length of Malone Roof Rack for 2014 Ford Escape to Carry Kayaks
    That's a great question and you've clearly put a lot of thought into it. And for your 2014 Ford Escape with raised rails I highly recommend the 58 inch Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216. The reason I recommend the longer bars is because they make kayaks much easier to load, particularly two kayaks, because they will be closer to the edge of your vehicle, so you don't have to try and contour your body to lift the kayaks up while bending to maneuver them on the roof. Longer crossbars...

  • Will Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Fit on OEM 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Roof Rack
    Yes, the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD will fit the OEM crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Crosstrek. One of the best features of the DownLoader is the ability to use the Telos XL Load Assist # MPG351XL with it. The Telos XL is actually paired with the DownLoader with part # MPG114MD-351XL. Since you are planning on using 2 of the DownLoader carriers you can use parts # MPG114MD-351XL and # MPG114MD to get 2 DownLoaders and 1 set of the load assist. Attached are some review...

  • Kayak Load Assist Options for a Vehicle with Factory Roof Rack
    It sounds like you need help loading a kayak(s) on your 2008 Lexus RX 400h with a factory roof rack. If that is the case then I do have an option for you but none of the side load assist arms we carry that attach to the crossbars which includes the Rhino-Rack Universal Load Assist part # RR-RUSL will work with factory crossbars as it requires an overhang. The overhang means the crossbars extend out past the mounting feet which is rarely the case for a factory roof rack. Instead, the...

  • Roof Rack and Two Load-Assist Kayak Carriers for 2020 Toyota 4Runner With Raised Side Rails
    While you can carry two kayaks on a roof rack of your 2020 Toyota 4Runner, there isn't enough available crossbar space for a pair of the Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist # TH898. The reason for that is the recommended crossbar length for your '20 4Runner is 53 inches, which would be approximately even with the sides of your vehicle, and would need crossbars at least 76 inches for a pair of Hullavators, which would stick out so much the bars would be a legitimate danger...

  • How to Easily Load Two Kayaks on a 2012 Honda Odyssey
    In order to carry two kayaks on your 2012 Honda Odyssey, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216 with the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier part # MPG114MD and the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module part # MPG351XL. The AirFlow2 will allow you to mount both kayaks using the carrier with the load assist in addition to most cargo boxes from Yakima, Thule, Rhino Rack etc. The load assist bars are angled and have height adjustments so you do not need to worry about any...

  • Kayak Carriers for Use on 2016 Lincoln MKX
    A 12-foot Eddyline Sandpiper kayak weighs a moderate 38-lbs in bone stock condition so the Lincoln's roof ought to be fine for the combined weight of two of them but it is still a good idea to check the owner's manual. Keep in mind that the vehicle's roof weight rating is for everything on it, which could include an aftermarket roof rack (10 to 15 -lbs) and kayak carriers (5 to 10-lbs) depending on which way you go. I suggest checking out the linked article on watersports carriers as...

  • Load Assist Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Chevy Volt
    The Yakima LongArm # Y01149 is designed to fit a 2 inch trailer hitch but the trailer hitches available for your 2017 Chevy Volt are all Class I, 1-1/4 inch hitches. But I do have another possible option for you. If your Volt already has a roof rack then you could potentially use the Malone DownLoader kayak carrier # MPG114MD with the Telos Load Assist # MPG351XL which will help you to load the kayak easier. I would just need more information about your roof rack if equipped such as...

  • Availability of Load-Assist Kayak Carrier to Use on Tall RV
    The extension legs for the Malone TelosXL Load Assist # MPG351XL really do need to make contact with the ground to allow for proper operation because as you mentioned, there aren't any other contact points (such as suction cups on the vehicle side) to provide support. Because of the height of your Ram Promaster I don't think there really is a load-assist option that will work well to assist with loading or unloading your kayaks. Any of them will either require some ground support or...

  • How to Carry a Kayak and SUP on a 2003 Subaru Legacy
    The main difference between the Swagman Contour Rooftop Kayak Carrier System part # S65148 and the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrier System part # MPG118MD is that the Malone option will allow for the use of the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module part # MPG351XL which aids in loading. They are essentially the same carrier aside from this aspect. Therefore, if you need help with loading I would go with the Malone system but if not the Swagman system will work fine for you. They will both...

  • Will the Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier Fit Rhino-Rack Euro Square Bars on a 2013 Kia Optima
    The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier and Lift Assist with Tie-Downs - Side Loading Item # TH898 will fit the Rhino-Rack square roof rack bars. But you need to make sure that the bars stick out past the roof rack feet at least 4 inches so that when the Hullavator is lowered it won't make contact with the vehicle. If the bars do not stick out far enough I recommend the Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD with the Telos load assist # MPG351XL. This combination will also provide a load assist...

  • Easy to Load Roof Mount Kayak Carrier Recommendation for a Vibe Sea Ghost Kayak
    I looked up the specs on your Vibe Sea Ghost kayak. It is pretty sweet! Looks like it weighs 74 pounds and is 13 feet long. The Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD with the Telos load assist # MPG351XL is a great option. This combination will also provide a load assist feature for loading/unloading the kayak. It is rated for 75 pounds. To determine if this or another carrier will fit I will need to know the year, make, and model of the vehicle and if it has crossbars that run side to side on...

  • Will the Thule Hullavator Pro Fit a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Mopar Crossbars
    The Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carrier # TH898 will likely fit your Mopar roof rack on your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Even if it doesn't fit the top channel it can still clamp around the bars. The carrier was designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical, most factory crossbars, and most crossbars with top channels. But there needs to be 4 to 8 inches of crossbar sticking out beyond each of the feet or rail for it to function properly and not make contact with the vehicle. I have included...

  • 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...

  • Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2007 Ford Edge with Vista Glass Roof
    There are roof racks that will fit your 2007 Ford Edge with the Vista panoramic roof. For a quiet roof rack I recommend the Thule WingBar system using bars # TH711400 or # TH711420, foot pack # TH480R, and fit kit # THKIT1530. Then you can use the Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD with the Telos load assist # MPG351XL. This combination will also provide a load assist feature for loading/unloading the kayak. It is rated for 75 pounds.

This combination will also provide a load assist feature for loading/unloading the kayak. It is rated for 75 pounds.

  • How to Carry Two Kayaks on a 2015 Nissan Rogue
    Absolutely! In order to carry two kayaks on the roof of your 2015 Nissan Rogue you will need a set of crossbars and set of kayak carriers. For the crossbars, I recommend using the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG215. These crossbars have an aero shape which will work to reduce wind drag and noise. They also have integrated t-slots and come with locks. Then for the kayak carriers, I recommend using two sets of the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrier part # MPG118MD. These carriers come...

  • Load Assist Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica with Factory Stowable Roof Rack
    There isn't a roof rack option for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica with the stowable factory roof rack. What I recommend is to use two of the Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD which will allow you to then use the TelosXL load assist accessory # MPG351XL. You would only need one of these since it does not stay permanently attached to the kayak carrier.

  • Using a Thule Hullavator Kayak Carrier on a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser with Factory Roof Rack
    I will be happy to help you out. The Thule Hullavator kayak carrier, # TH898, needs to be mounted on crossbars that extend beyond the side rails or foot pack. It will not fit any other way. So to add compatible crossbars to your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser that has factory crossbars you can use the Thule rack using parts # TH712400 and # TH710401. These bars mount to the side rails and also include locks to deter theft. Enough of the bars will be sticking out each end to use the Hullavator. Another...

  • Can 2 Thule Hullavator Pro Kayak Carriers be Used on a 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    We do have a few ways to carry your kayaks with your 2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser but since the Thule Hullavator Pro # TH898 requires that the roof rack have a weight capacity of 130 lbs and crossbars that hang over the legs by 4" - 8" we unfortunately don't have a setup for you to use the Hullavator Pro. Instead what you can use is the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD which allows you to use the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module # MPG351XL. This doesn't use gas struts like the Hullavator...
