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.

I installed the roof rack easily. The instructions were clear. The cross bars are strong and heavy. The towers adjust easily with the provided tool. It chirps a bit when I drive. I don’t mind that. I plan to carry two Hornbeck canoes. 560113

Review from a similar SteelTop in Roof Rack


I make two suggestion. In addition to the wrench included with the product, a hex head bit of the same size as the wrench should be included. I found that the wrench was not the right tool for taking up the slack in attaching the crossbars. After considerable searching, necessary because the hex head size of the wrench provided is not readily available locally, I found a package of six hex bits (including the needed size) on line. It leaves me with five useless hex bits, of course. Nonetheless, using a battery screw driver, the crossbar installation is quick and easy, finished up with a wrench tightening. The second suggestion is that the crossbars be scored and marked at distances along either end so the bars may easily be centered. 776700

Review from a similar SteelTop in Roof Rack


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.

Review from a similar SteelTop in Roof Rack


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.

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

Great product. It fits and works well. Put plenty of weight on it and it performed perfectly. Customer service and shipping were fantastic. Keep up the good work! Oh, BTW, do you have and accessories that fit on the Malone cross bars? Cheers 590923

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

Review from a similar SteelTop in Roof Rack


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.

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

Review from a similar SteelTop in Roof Rack


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

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

  • How Long of Crossbars for 2017 Subaru Forester
    The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack- 65" # MPG203 will fit your 2017 Subaru Forester. The 50" # MPG201 and 58" # MPG202 are recommended because they won't stick out too far past the body of your Forester. It is not recommended to have your bars stick past your side-view mirrors. The 65" will be 3-1/2" on each side more than the recommended 58" model. I don't think you will have issues extending past your mirrors with the overall width of your vehicle being 70.7".

  • 2015 Subaru Forester Limited Roof Rack Recommendation for Carrying Ladders
    For your 2015 Subaru Forester that has raised rails that run from front to back the Malone SteelTop Roof Rack part # MPG203 has been confirmed as a fit and would work well for your vehicle. For load stops for the ladders the part # TH503 would be recommended and then for straps # 34413 for ratchet straps. If your ladders will be 20 feet long on the roof of your vehicle you will need to check your local DOT for regulations on carrying an item that long.

  • Recommended Solution with Load Assist for Carrying 2 Kayaks on 2020 Honda Ridgeline
    I have a solution for you, but the Thule Hullavator # TH898 requires approximately 38" of bar space for each one, so you're not going to have enough space on the 65" bars of the Malone SteelTop Roof Rack # MPG203 to mount two of them. The Hullavator also requires 4"-8" of space outside of each foot pack to avoid contact with the vehicle, so you'll want to measure from center on center on your factory side rails to make sure they're no more than 57" apart in order to have that extra room...

  • Malone Roof Rack for 2015 Subaru Forester with Raised Rails for Use with Yakima Sidewinder
    The Sidewinder # Y02071 does not actually work with the Mighty Mounts according to Yakima and can only fit square or round crossbars. So to use it on your 2015 Subaru Forester you'd have to swap to the Malone square bar roof rack part # MPG203 instead of what you have.

  • How Long of Crossbars are Needed to Attach Two Thule Hullavator Crossbars
    The Thule Hullavator part # TH898 takes up approximately 28.5 inches of cross bar space so you would need at least 57 inch bars, therefore the 65 inch bar you mentioned will work. Keep in mind that the Hullavator requires 4-8 inches of cross bar overhang on either side as well. So for that you would want the # MPG203 for a roof rack confirmed to fit the raised rails of your 2017 Subaru Forester that has 65 inch long bars.
