Video Transcript for Malone XtraLight Trailer J-Style Kayak Carrier Review

Speaker 1: Today, we're going to be taking a look at the J-style kayak carriers for the Malone Extra-Light Trailer, part number MPG566.Now, if you have a Malone Extra-Light Trailer, this is a great way to expand its versatility and get your kayaks hooked up and ready to go to the lake. The best part about this setup is how easy it is to load and unload your kayak. Other setups, like roof-mounted options or ladder-rack options, are much higher up, so it strains your back. It can be difficult for shorter people.Another great benefit is that you can load it and unload it right into your garage while still on the trailer. Whether it be a shed or barn, it's ready to go the next time your ready to hook-up.It comes with four J-style cradles to hold your kayaks in place. The J-cradle design has a longer inside arm and a shorter outside arm.

This makes it easier to load your kayak up and take it back off. On both the inside and outside edge of the cradles, you'll find a nice foam padding. This will allow you to secure your kayak tightly without worrying about scratches, abrasions or cracking. It also protects it from vibrations while going down the road. At the top of the inside arm, you'll find a loophole so you can tie down your kayak using the included straps.

There's a vinyl and felt padding under the buckle to prevent it from scratching your kayak. The four included straps are 11-feet long, which will be suitable for any medium size kayak.We've already got our one side installed, we're going to go ahead and show you how to do the other. It will install exactly the same way.To begin your installation, you'll put your J-style bracket on top of your crossbar. You have two clamps that hold it into place. One is slightly wider than the other.

The wider clamp is going to go on top, and the shorter clamp on bottom. Line it up with the groove on your J-style arm, and slide it over just inside the inner crossbar support, slide your carriage bolt down through the top, slide on your flat washer and thread on your lock nut. Double check that you're just inside the crossbar support and tighten down the lock nut with a 13-millimeter socket. Once you have threads poking through the bottom of the lock nut, it'll be secured to your trailer. Now, you repeat this on your front crossbar.

Now that everything's tightened down, you can go ahead and load up your kayaks, secure them with the included straps and hit the road.That completes our look at the J-style kayak carrier for the Malone Extra Light Trailer.

Perfect for my 10 ft kayak. 785642

I received my order in great time and in great shape! Have not had a chance to install these on my trailer yet, but will update my review and a pic of how they worked with my Malone trailer and Jackson Kilroy DT Kayak. 569354

- MPG566

The J-style kayak carriers by Malone are made from steel almost 1/4 inch thick and are very strong. The brackets used to bolt the carriers are also thick steel. The brackets are made to clamp around a 1.25 inch square tubing. Top and bottom brackets are included for each carrier. The carriers are also partially covered with foam which I think will hold up if they are kept out of the weather. The included straps work but I would classify them as medium duty. Plan on a month or more for delivery from etrailer. I gave the MPG566 four stars because of the cost and delivery time. 547563

Weve been using the j-style kayak carriers by Malone for about a year on a trailer. No problems. They will probably outlive several sets of kayaks.

  • Choosing Between A V Rack And A J Rack For A Malone Kayak Trailer
    I recommend the V-Racks or horizontal kayak racks that allow your kayak to lay flat on it's belly. They are easy to load and are lower profile when loaded so less wind resistance is generated. They can also accommodate the heavier, wider fishing kayaks if that applies now or in their future kayak purchases. The Malone MicroSport Trailer for 2 Heavy Kayaks # MPG461GS is a great example. J-style are popular but can also be more difficult to load and are less wind resistant with a higher...
