Maximize Your Storage Space
Malone Striper-4

Get your fishing rods out of the back of your vehicle and free up space for friends and other gear. Malone's Striper-4 is capable of holding 4 fishing rods up to 8' long. If your poles are over 8' long, you can still carry them, but you'll have to break them down first.

In addition to freeing up space inside your vehicle, the Striper-4 also saves space on your roof. Because it's only 18" wide, you'll have room on your roof rack to carry a kayak, cargo basket, or other gear.

Quick and Easy Access

A push button on the top of the rod clamp makes it easy to open the carrier. The spring-loaded arm pops open once the button is engaged and remains elevated while you're loading your rods. When you're ready to head out, slide your grips into the handle holder, place your rods in each padded slot in the rod clamp, then push the arm down until it snaps closed.

Built-In Security
Locking Carrier

With Malone's built-in security, you won't have to worry about your fishing poles being tampered with if you make a pit stop on the way to the lake. The Striper-4 comes equipped with a lock that secures your rods in the carrier. You can rest assured that a would-be thief won't walk off with your rods.

Adjustable Clamp-On Installation
Malone Striper Clamp Mount
To install the Striper-4, mount both pieces of the carrier on your crossbars with the rod clamp on the front of your vehicle and the handle holder on the back. You want to load your rods forward-facing to avoid damage to your rods when opening the rear hatch of your vehicle.

To finish the installation, adjust the two outer handle holder tubes to point approximately 45 degrees away from the forward-facing holders. This will give you access to the mounting holes in the base of the handle holder. Thread 2 bolts through each pair of mounting brackets using the provided Allen wrench to secure the handle holder to your crossbars.

Striper-4 Install

After installing the handle holder, use the remaining mounting brackets to attach the rod clamp to the other end of your vehicle. Give each piece a tug and make sure it's secure. Tighten as needed.

Video Transcript for Review of Malone Fishing Rod Holders - Striper Locking 4 Fishing Rod Carrier - MAL26RR

Hi everybody, Andy here with and today we're gonna take a look at the Malone Striper locking fishing rod carrier. Now, this convenient locking carrier is going to let you transport up to four fishing rods safely and securely on your roof rack. It fits four spinning rods and reels and it will work on your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory crossbars with this universal mounting system. Now, the push button release is going to let you easily open the carrier and the padded tip clamps are going to help protect your rods from scratches and scuffs. So, we have a generous portion of padding in each of those areas where the tips of your fishing rods are going to go in. And the included lock is going to secure your rods to the carrier.

Two keys are included and to lock this, you're just going to turn the key and remove it. And as you can see, that's going to be locked and secure. Now, I do wanna point out that the tip holder latch is only secure when the key is removed. And I also wanna mention that replacement keys are not available, so you do wanna make sure that you always store the keys in a safe place. So, again, it's gonna be very easy to use, very easy to open and this is going to be, these tubes are gonna be where the handles of your fishing rods will go.

So, I just want to give you a brief overview of these and just to give you some overall dimensions to give you an idea of the size of this system, beginning with looking at the dimensions of our clamp. The overall length, we're sitting right at about 18 inches long, and then the overall width, including the mounting points, so here at the widest point, we're sitting right at about five inches wide. And this is going to sit about four inches tall off your roof rack. And then, looking at the dimensions of our tubes where the handles of your fishing rods are going to go. The overall length, we're sitting at about 14 inches long.

The overall width, about 11 inches wide. And again, the overall height about four inches tall. Now, this carrier is well built with corrosion resistant components. It's a very durable, tough plastic material, so it's going to really hold up well, and the mounting hardware as well is going to be corrosion resistant. Instructions are included to walk you through the installation process.

And this does have a limited lifetime warranty from Malone. Well, that's gonna conclude our look today. I do hope that it was helpful for you. Again, my name is Andy. Thank you for joining me.

  • Can I Install a Fishing Rod Carrier on the Buyers Products Ladder Rack # 3371501680?
    You are definitely correct that the Buyers Products Truck Bed Ladder Rack w/ Load Stops - Black Aluminum - 800 lbs # 3371501680 requires you to remove your tonneau cover in order to install. It is also important to note that since the # 3371501680 attaches by clamping onto your truck bed's rails, you cannot use your tonneau cover simultaneously with this rack. As far as the crossbar dimensions, they measure 66" long x 3-1/4" wide x 1-1/2" tall. If you need a carrier that is compatible with...
