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 SteelTop Universal Roof Rack Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone SteelTop universal roof rack system for factory raised side rails, part number MPG202. The Malone SteelTop universal roof rack system mounts to most factory raised side rails and gives you extra storage space on your roof so you can free up space inside your vehicle. This is a square bar design, which will fit most roof rack accessories and also has a corrosion resistant coating around it to give it a longer lasting life. Both bars have a combined carry capacity of 165 pounds, although you always want to double-check with your vehicle's manual to make sure it can maintain those weights. This means you can carry a wide variety of items such as bike racks, kayak carriers, or cargo baskets. All the towers have a locking end to them, so that means they're going to be secured to your factory raised side rails once they're installed. For our crossbar dimensions, it's going to be 58" long by 1-1/4" wide by 7/8" tall. This is very simple and easy to put onto your factory raised side rails and comes with all the required hardware to do so. Now that we've gone over some of the features of the roof rack system, let's go ahead and show you how it installs. Once you open the box, here's what you're going to get.

The towers are already going to be attached to our actual crossbars. We'll have endcaps for the crossbars as well. Then we have these adapter pieces here for thinner side rails. We also have our tightening Allen key and two keys for our locks. To start off, we'll unlock our endcaps, pulling off those pieces there. That's going to expose the Allen head screw we need to loosen up the clamp.

So we'll take our Allen tool, loosen up our clamp. It'll be a little bit tight at first when you first get it. All right, we'll repeat this on the other side, and then we'll be able to set this on our side rails. I'm getting it lined up, and then I'm going to find a spot up at the front here, which I can use as a reference to measure back and make sure that the bar is straight on both sides. I'm going to go ahead and go with this edge here. I'll get my measuring tape and measure that out.

I'll do this for the other side as well. With these measurements finished, next we'll take our crossbar overhang measurement, and we'll make sure that's even on both sides as well. Then we can start tightening this down to our side rails. As we tighten these down, we're just going to get it tight enough to be snug around our rails. Now we can lock it down. I'll set this into place, the rear area of our bar. Then I'll measure for our crossbar spread, which is from center of the bar to center of the bar.

When measuring out this distance, you want them to at least by 24" apart. Next I'll go for our crossbar overhang like we did with the front. All right, now we can start tightening it down as well. Now with everything locked up, we're ready to load our gear and hit the road. There you have it for the Malone SteelTop universal roof rack for raised side rails, part number MPG202.

Got UPS notification that they were delivered today, on time and in great condition. Never before have I messed with luggage racks. Didn't bother reading directions, just went off memory from the etrailer video. Install couldn't have been any easier, seriously. They were centered, tightened down and locked in no more than 20 minutes. Super sturdy and clean looking. Then I bolted on my kayak racks, threw on the kayaks and went for a test drive. I'm ??% satisfied. The Malone racks got the competition beat big time, especially in price. 528498


Comments

Got an email today telling me its been about a year since we got the roof racks. I still have to say Im completely satisfied with these bars. Very sturdy. They hold both our 10 kayaks with no problems at all at highway speeds. I removed them for the winter and put them back on a couple months back. I still say these bars are the way to go just based on price compared to the competition, then after using them you really realize how valuable they are.

I chose this cross bar system mainly for the reasonable price and the good reviews. They were very easy to install and I love that they include locks. They attach very tightly to the factory side rails of my 2009 Subaru Forester. I purchased some J style kayak mounts that I attached to the rails. They went on easily and are very solid. I will likely leave the mounts attached to the rails and take the rails on and off as needed. Overall I think these were a great buy. 526264


Comments

After using these cross bars for a year, I can easily say that I am very pleased with them. I am confident that they will continue to perform without issue for years to come.

I purchased the installation kit for my curt gooseneck hitch. Etrailer prices were comparative to others but their service has been excellent. The only thing that I will comment on is that after the part left their warehouse and was accepted by Surepost the part sat at one of surepost sorting sites for 5 days before being forwarded on. After etrailer if they were aware of any problems with surepost. They contacted surepost and after that the shipment was expedited and I received my part as promised. Good communication with etrailer. 513892

Locks seem like they could easily be chisled off but otherwise a solid setup. Haven't looked at the locks on other more expensive brands but for the money I saved I'm very happy with the setup! Very solid. My '14 Forester has the factory sun roof deflector installed, so I noticed no additional noise with the bars on the car. 521894

Upon taking the rails out of the box, I am guessing that someone returned these because I could see that some of the plastic coating on the rails was nicked or scuffed...like they had been mounted before. I was ok with that, since it would not affect the performance and they were barely noticeable. Mounted nicely to the factory rails of my 2011 Odyssey. My issue was the noise at 35mph+. Like a droning noise up until around 50...then a vibrating noise. I would maybe settle for these on a very short trip, but for the price I paid, and a long road trip ahead, I will be returning these. 501927

Excellent product, very well made, very sturdy. However the product is not 58 inches as advertised. It is only 56 inches in length. E trailer is an excellent company to deal with, they refunded my money and paid for the return postage. Very prompt and courteous customer support. Give them a try you will not be disappointed. Their pricing and free postage makes them the best price around. However I found the same product with 65 inch bars Direct from Malone but with a higher fee and additional postage fee. 504731

Our tech, Bryan W. called me immediately to say my first choice was on backorder. Since I was familiar with the offerings, I asked Bryan if my alternate was available - and it was. I received my Malone cross bars in 2-3 days. I followed the instructions and they were easily installed. If you think the grip fingers are not tight enough, go ahead and use the supplied spacers. They made a difference for me. The quality and price was exactly what I was looking for. 460912

The clamps that attach this rack to the bars running lengthwise on my roof seem tight and secure but the shape of the clamp does not mate very precisely with the shape of the bars. So far it is working well but is something I plan to keep an eye on because it looks like it could loosen over time. The box arrived beat up and covered in tape. All of the plastic bags containing small parts had already been opened but the parts seemed to all be there. There were no directions included. I think the rack I received had been returned by someone else. However the individual parts were in good shape. 540494


Comments

This roof rack is a semi-custom fit roof rack so it would be a good idea to keep an eye on it. Since it does fit a variety of raised roof rail options the fit maynot be a precise as a fully custom fit roof rack for your raised rails on your Toyota RAV4. I have also provided a link to the installation instructions for your reference.

This roof rack works great with absolutely no problem. Easy installation and sturdy enough for a large rooftop carrier. Wide enough for a paddleboard and a kayak together. The only knock against them is they are kind of noisy. I chose these because I was looking for a set that would work with both of our vehicles. I should have bought the aero bars - they weren't much more $$ from the same manufacturer. 686731

Really reluctant to purchase roof bars online sight unseen. Rep assured me I selected the correct model for my vehicle (MPG202). The bars arrived on the date promised. Quick install (except when I loosened the bolt too far and it fell out). I was so surprised how quickly I installed the bars, the fit was perfect and it accommodated my Thule carrier. No wind sound while driving. All secure. I am more than pleased. These bars far exceeded my expectations. The price was great, too. GMC bars are $255.00..crazy. Thank you etrailer.com for your assistance. I also have to thank you for the vehicle installation videos you post on your webpage. Seeing the install done on my vehicle was such a plus! Excellent experience! 668028

My roof rack bars are excellent. I especially like the 58" length, something I could not find anywhere else. They were dead easy to install, and they look good. They will be used to carry - with a carry platform I will make myself - everything from my canoes to lumber to bales of hay, and god knows what else besides. I am very pleased with my purchase; the bars are very well worth the price. Snd thank you very much for your prompt, efficient service. 658213

Review from a similar Malone SteelTop in Roof Rack


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

Review from a similar Malone SteelTop in Roof Rack


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

  • 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...

The Malone Steel Top roof rack # MPG201 uses square crossbars and is a confirmed fit on the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek with factory installed roof side rails that run front to back. It offers a 165-lb weight capacity so it will be fine for the weight of your Saranac 146. If you want to maximize your rooftop...

  • 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...

  • J-Style Kayak Carrier Slides Around when Attached to 2013 Ford Explorer Sport Factory Roof Rack
  • Actually, the easiest solution would be to use Malone roof rack # MPG202 rather than change to a different kayak carrier. Basically, you will likely run into the same problem with any J-Style kayak carrier. So you can keep the one you have and instead clamp these Malone bars to the factory side rails on your 2013 Ford Explorer Sport. If you would rather just go with a different carrier then I recommend the Thule Hull-A-Port XT # TH848. This carrier has 2 mounting feet per J-cradle for...

  • Installing Malone Square Roof Rack Crossbars on 2016 Ford Focus 5-Door Hatchback with Bare Roof
  • Malone has no roof rack fits for your 2016 Ford Focus 5-Door hatchback with a bare roof but since your Malone rack # MPG202 uses the same size square crossbars as other rack brands you can use your existing 58-inch bars with new feet from Inno. You'll just need rack feet part # INSUT and fit kit # INK528

  • Malone Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Nissan Pathfinder for Rola Cargo Basket
  • Aero shaped crossbars are definitely quieter than square bars so if you are wanting a quieter ride quality the aero shaped Malone roof rack part # MPG216 which is a confirmed fit for the raised roof rails of your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder would be the way to go over the # MPG202. With this rack installed you could then use the Rola cargo basket part # 59504-EXT that you mentioned.

  • Surco Roof Cargo Basket for a 2016 Toyota 4Runner
  • In order to use any roof top cargo basket, you'll have to use a set of crossbars to support the basket. I've attached a list of all possible racks for the 2016 Toyota 4Runner, but I have a recommendation based on your goals. First, you'll want to verify the roof capacity of your vehicle in your owner's manual. According to my research the 2016 Toyota 4Runner has a roof capacity of 120lbs. The entire weight of your loaded cargo, the roof basket and the rails needs to be less than 120lbs...

If you wanted to carry a kayak the Thule Hullaport part # TH848 is a great option. It can be folded down when not in use to help with wind noise and mileage and if ever...

  • Roof Rack to Fit a 2015 Hyundai Tucson Limited
  • I'm fairly sure the Limited model of the 2015 Hyundai Tucson has factory raised rails on its roof. If so, there are three Malone roof rack options that fit; the 58 inch SteelTop square bars # MPG202, the 65 inch SteelTop square bars # MPG203, and the 58 inch AirFlow2 aero bars # MPG216. Between the three I recommend the AirFlow2 because of the aero bar design that reduces wind noise and has an overall better look, in my opinion. If I'm wrong about your Hyundai's roof and you actually...

  • Roof Rack Crossbars and Tent Recommended for 2016 Subaru Crosstrek and 2012 Toyota Highlander
  • For a vehicle roof tent made for a US spec vehicle you will want to choose one that is primarily supported by uprights that make contact with the ground. The reason is that in the US the vehicle roofs and roof racks do not have high enough weight capacity ratings to support the whole weight of the tent and occupants. But we do have some options that fit this description. First, you will need crossbars. For your 2016 Subaru Crosstrek you can use Malone roof rack # MPG201. This is a basic...

  • Does Malone Roof Rack MPG202 Fit 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan with Raised Rails
  • For your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan the Malone roof rack part number # MPG202 is a confirmed fit that would work well. Malone has test fit it on your vehicle and found that it fit and was perfectly safe. It has a weight capacity of 165 lbs. It does not need to fit into the pin holes of your rails and instead clamps tightly to the bars. When it is tightened to the rails of your roof it would not push back on them from the wind. The rack has a limited lifetime warranty that would protect it...

  • How to Carry Two 2017 Electra Townie Go! Bicycles on a 2005 Audi Avant
  • The Thule Raceway PRO Platform Bike Rack # TH9003PRO is confirmed to fit your 2005 Audi Avant. However, it only has a maximum weight capacity of 35 pounds per bike. So I can't recommend using it to carry your two Electra Townie Go! bikes weighing over 50 pounds each. Also, like you said, the top clamps will likely not reach the tubes of the bikes. Instead I recommend adding a roof rack using the Malone # MPG202. Then you can use two of the RockyMounts BrassKnuckles Roof Mounted Bike...
