Malone SteelTop Roof Rack

The Malone SteelTop roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on the roof of your vehicle with raised, factory side rails. This complete roof rack system includes 2 steel, square crossbars and 4 towers. The full-length crossbars extend past the towers to give you more mounting space for carriers, and the towers have built-in locks to protect the rack from theft. The rack clamps onto your raised side rails and tightens down with the included tool, so it's easy to remove and install.


Strong, Steel Crossbars

Malone SteelTop Crossbar without Endcap

The durable crossbars are made of steel and have a black vinyl coating to protect them from corrosion and keep them looking new. The bars also have plastic endcaps to protect the interiors from the elements and to give your roof rack a finished look.


Durable Towers with Built-In Security

Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Towers

The towers are made of molded nylon that won't fade or wear down when exposed to the elements. Each tower includes a nylon cover with a built-in lock to deter would-be thieves from removing the rack from your roof. The covers also protect the towers' interior and hardware from the elements.


Easy Installation with Rubber-Coated Steel Clamps

Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Rubber Clamps

The towers attach to your vehicle's raised, factory side rails with rubber-coated steel clamps. The rubber coating provides a superior grip on your side rails and protects them from damage during installation and use.


Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Installation Tool

To tighten, simply turn the bolt inside the tower assembly with the included installation tool until the clamps are snug.


Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Rubber Spacer Blocks

Rubber spacer blocks are included to fit smaller side rails. If the clamps don't tighten enough to your side rails, just slide a spacer block onto the clamps before tightening them.


Once assembled, the towers and crossbars stay together as one unit, which makes removing, storing, and reinstalling the system a snap. To remove, simply remove the cover and loosen the bolts inside the towers with the installation tool.


Maximum Cargo Carrying Capacity

Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Full-Length Crossbars

The SteelTop includes full-length crossbars that extend past the towers. The increased length gives you more space to mount accessories and carriers to your roof rack. The bars are compatible with most universal, clamp-on accessories and carriers.

Video Transcript for Malone Roof Rack - Complete Roof Systems - MPG201 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look a the Malone Steel Top Universal Roof Rack for raised side rails. These bars come fully assembled, and they attach to the factory installed raised side rails on your vehicle to provide a roof rack system for hauling all of your gear. This will allow you to carry roof rack accessories such as bike racks, baskets, boxes, kayak carriers, ski and snowboard carriers, and much more. The unit's going to feature the traditional square bar design, so that's designed to accept accessories that clamp or strap around the bar. The bars come with adjustable feet, so that's these towers right here. You can adjust them along the length of the bar to get them where you need to be for your application. So the adjustable feet easily attach to your raised side rails.

See here how they have that gripping system on them They're going to attach very quickly, very easily. Those towers are padded to keep from damaging or scuffing the side rails as you tighten them around the side rails on your vehicle. It also comes with rubber spacer blocks. These are designed to be used for smaller sized factory side rails. The built in locks on each foot is going to secure the rack to the side rails on the vehicle. Again, the bars are made from a steel construction.

They're very strong and durable. They're going to feature this corrosion resistant coating. It's like a plastic coating. That's going to ensure that the bars last a long time and stay protected from the elements. Very quick installation as well. Again it is a universal system.

This system comes fully assembled. It's ready for installation right out of the box. I'll just walk you through a little bit about how the foot pack or the tower operates. So you'll notice that on that tower there's going to be a lock. The unit comes with two keys, both are the same, so either one of these keys will work on any lock on the system.

Place it in there and you want to move it to the Open position. That's going to allow that small piece right there to be removed. That's going to allow you to gain access to the Allen bolt. So you'll take the included Allen wrench, place it directly in that slot, and then you just start tightening that up. As you tighten it's going to tighten the feet around the side rails on the vehicle. Then when you're ready to remove it you use this to loosen that up, to loosen the feet from the side rails on the vehicle. So it's a nice, easy system to use and operate. Very user friendly. Again, each foot pack has a built in lock for maximum security. Now with this kit you're going to get two square bars. You're going to get all four towers with keyed locks. You're going to get end caps for the ends of the bar. You're going to get the spacer blocks. You're going to get two keys and one Allen wrench. These bars are available in three different lengths at etrailer.com. That way you can get the link that's going to work best for your particular vehicle. They're available in a 50" length, 58" length, and 65" length. When it comes to the dimensions of the crossbar themselves they're going to measure about 1-1/4" wide by 7/8" tall. Load capacity is 165 pounds per pair, and they're going to be covered with a lifetime warranty. That's going to do it for today's look at the Malone Steel Top Universal Roof Rack for raised side rails.

Even better than advertised. Easy to install and to my surprise the overlap of the bars (outside the dimensions fo the factory rails) was minimal and the product is as good or better (especially price wise) than the so-called OEM products that are available. Now my Ford Escape has a roof rack that is functional not just for show. 422657

The product is well made and very stong, although there is a slight flaw........ one flaw that I noticed is that it did not fit as snugly as I thought it would , none the less it does serve the purpose .I would have liked it better if it would have fit more snugly, seems that the rail on the van rea a little too big too big for the throat of the product, I,m using it to carry my canoe 408986

I picked these roof racks to support the width of my roofbox. The OEM roofbars that came with my 2017 Toyota Rav4 did not have a wide enough bar space to support my bars, nor did they have a load capacity instilling much confidence. These bars are excellent. They're simple, straight forward, support a bunch of weight, all with one major downside. There is an insane amount of wind noise. If i don't have a box on the bars, there is a terribly loud howling at any speed over 40. To remedy this, I just leave a bungee cord wound around the front bar when I don't have a load on there. It's irritating, but it does the job. I'd advise getting the aero bars instead. They're supposed to have much less road noise, and they're not much more in cost. 597019

The crossbars I recieved from etrailer worked out great. They will help us add space for our family vacation.The customer service I received from Ashley was top of the line as well. I called on a Thursday night and asked if I could possibly get it by the following Wednesday and she said I should recieve the crossbars no later than Tuesday. That was perfect for me. On Saturday I received a message saying my order has arrived. How about that for service! I will definitely use etrailer again. 544771

3 star is for the product, but I should mention that eTrailer.com got 5 STAR for the service. Now to the product: Pro: Easy to install, light weight and seem strong/durable. Con: wind noise At 40mph the noise/whistling sound came in, and above 60mph is noticeably loud. I don't have anything to compare, since this is the first crossbar I've installed. I will try to move the bar around and see if it makes any difference. The good thing is I can remove this crossbar (and it's easy and quick to do it) and just put it on when I need them, and therefore I'm keeping it. But I don't think I would recommend it to anyone, especially if they own the same car like mine, because maybe this just a car issue, many other reviewer shares good experience with it. I will update this review if I can improve on the wind noise. 484749

Crossbars are really nice quality & build. I love how they look and esp the locks. My only gripe is that they do vibrate/whistle. Oh the freeway, forget about listening to the radio. I had to buy a Yakima wind deflector thing, which fixed the issue- I would have went with a design that didn't require me to spend an additional $88. Other than that, I'm happy with them. 562159

These worked great on my 2014 Mazda CX-9 Sport factory installed roof rack side rails. Installation was easy. I did notice at highway speed it causes a low whistle but have read that moving the rails back can help. I wish the leading edge of these weren't so flat but more of a wedge shape in order to cut into the wind with less resistance. 455582

Racks arrived quickly and were extremely easy to install. Seem solid and well made with attention to detail. Some reviewers complained of the wind noise so I was planning to fair the racks with rubber pipe insulation. I have driven up to75mph and there is no noticeable noise at all in my 2016 Subaru Forester with no fairing of the cross bars. I went so far as turning the radio off and still nothing above the normal road sounds at 75. As always dealing with etrailer was great, just wish more companies were this good. 618050

2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

The assembly was very easy and didn't need the instructions to put them on my Subaru Crosstek. Only down side is the wind noise and don't want to get the deflector because I fear the parts that touch the roof would eventually wear the paint off. I wanted something to keep on the roof so I don't have to keep removing it, but due to the ease of assembly and disassembly I might try it out for awhile. I cut the allen wrench down so it would fit in the chuck of my cordless drill to speed up the process. 491648


Comments
It was easily to install, but it was getting annoying taking it on and off and I couldnt stand the wind hollowing when they were on, so I went and go the ones from Subaru and they worked a lot better.

Roof racks were originally purchased with intention to leave on the vehicle permanently. Product mounted fine - instructions were clear - product served an immediate purpose. However, after several weeks, the wind noise created grew too annoying on my otherwise very quiet car. That said, racks are stored in the garage to be mounted and used whenever necessary. 602136

So far so good, a little wind noise but I was used to it within a day. Doesn’t bother me just alert your passengers so they are not startled when in the car. They took a bit of time to figure out because I kept trying to snap them into place but you don’t need to do that. If you sit them in place as much as possible, start tightening the screw and it will pop itself into place. After they were tightened, I pulled down just a bit to make sure they are locked tight. Overall super quick delivery! One downfall was only with the delivery but that is bc of USPS. It was raining and the mail person left the box on the porch in the rain vs 3 inches further under the overhang. Etrailer was great!!!! 512445

I have these installed on a 2009 xc90 Volvo. They are square i n shape and make a horrible whistling noise once I get above 30 miles an hour. If you don't care about the noise then they will be OK. They are strong and reasonably easy to install. 610629

Unfortunately, at higher speeds wind noise from a square-profile crossbar is pretty much unavoidable. Malone does offer an aero-style rack, part # MPG216

Rack works well, the downside is it is much worse on wind noise than the Thule feet with square bars that it replaces. 736785

Very good basic roof rack. Fairly easy to install. The only thing that takes a little more time then I would have liked is tightening the rack onto the roof rails with the allen wrench. That takes several minutes for all four attachment points. Other than that a basic reliable roof rack. 736441



- MPG201
by:

Rack was priced right and is compatible with any accessory I've thrown on it. Used with factory running rails on two different cars: a 2005 Subaru Impreza wagon and a 2013 VW Jetta Sportwagen. I like how they lock and I'm 100% confident they will stay secure. Only negative really is noise but that will be the same with any square rack. Get an aerodynamic rack if you are driving expressways a lot. Even in the diesel which has more sound muting than a normal car these things sing at 80mph. 735230


Comments
A great solution for reducing the wind noise with a square bar roof rack is to add a fairing to help better defect the wind. For a fairing that will fit your Jetta Sportwagen and Subaru Impreza, I recommend a fairing around 34 inches such as the Yakima WindShield Fairing # Y05016
Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 34" Long
$125.00
. Another, slightly smaller, option is the Rhino-Rack Fairing at 32 inches long, # RRRF1
Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 32" Long
$93.60
. A fairing is a bit of an investment, but if you find you are driving at interstate speeds often, it is a great way to help quiet your roof rack.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Roof Rack

  • Solution for Wind Noise with the Malone Roof Rack part # MPG201
    Roof racks can add some wind noise. Luckily there is a solution for that. If you install a wind fairing you'll direct the air over the bars and the noise will go away. For a fairing to use with the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 the part # Y05017 would be what you need. You can also try moving the bars further back on your rack to see if that helps too.

  • Square Bar Roof Racks that Fit 2019 Toyota RAV4 with Roof Rails
    If the rails on the roof of your 2019 Toyota RAV4 were raised rails (you could put your under them) then yes, the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 would fit and work well. But since you said you have flush rails (rails without a gap between them and the vehicle roof) the best option we have is the Thule square crossbar roof rack part numbers # TH712200, # TH460R, and # THKIT3177. This rack is essentially the nicest square bar roof rack that fits your vehicle.

  • How does Roof Rack Bar Sizing Work?
    Roof Rack sizing is a little different than what you'd expect it to be. Each rack's length is measured by the length of the bar from end to end, letting you pick the amount of distance the bar goes past the bars on the top of your Jeep. The other measurement, called "Cross Bar Spread" is the recommended distance from the center of one bar to the other bar. This helps you pick the size of the roof rack or cargo bag that you can put on top of the vehicle, as well as if a surfboard...

  • Recommended Roof Rack to Use the Yakima ShowDown on a 2013 Toyota RAV4 with Raised Rails
    If you are interested in the Malone square bar roof rack then I recommend going with the 58" bars # MPG202 over the 50" bars # MPG201 for your 2013 Toyota RAV4. Reason being that the Yakima ShowDown # Y04081 requires that the crossbars extend at least 3-1/2" beyond the towers and I don't think you will achieve this with the 50" bars. As far as best goes, the Malone roof racks are good but they are entry level roof racks so they aren't quite as nice as other name brand options. In my...

  • Would Malone Square Crossbars Fit into Thule Podium Square Bar Feet
    The Thule square crossbars and the Malone crossbars are the same width and height at 1-1/4 inches wide by 7/8 inches tall. There's no reason the Malone bar wouldn't fit into the older Thule square Podium feet but you should note that it's never been officially tested so you'd be accepting that risk and not have any warranty coverage.

  • Roof Rack for 2017 Volvo XC90 with Raised Roof Rails
    For your 2017 XC90 with raised roof rails the roof rack I recommend to meet your preferences for good quality, value and longer bar size is the Yakima CoreBar system that is made of parts # Y00422 and # Y00147. This rack features 60-inch aerodynamic bars that will make less wind noise than other types and it has a 165-lb weight rating on your XC90.

  • Malone SteelTop Rook Rack Compatibility with 2014 Jeep Cherokee Latitude
    We have fit and confirmed the Malone SteelTop Roof Rack - Square Crossbars # MPG201 are a fit for the 2014-2019 Jeep Cherokee models that have silver colored rails.

    The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack # MPG201 that you referenced has a dynamic capacity of 165 lbs which is different from the capacity needed for a roof top tent as that would be static weight. Dynamic in this situation means the capacity it can carry while on the road which will have bumps and dips that will exaggerate the weight on the rack. So the standard way to determine if you'd have the capacity needed will be to contact the roof top tent manufacturer as they normally have a formula...

  • Wind Fairing to Fit Malone Roof Rack for Raised Rails of 2016 Subaru Crosstrek
    For a fairing to fit the Malone square bar roof rack part # MPG201 you'll want a Yakima brand fairing as they are the only fairings around that can fit all bar shapes/styles since they use a zip strap as attachment hardware.
