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.

I purchased Malone Roof crossbars for my 2014 Kia Sedona minivan. Installation was quick and secure. Very happy with the strength so far. I will be using it with a Roof basket and luggage bag on our trip from Florida to Tennessee. 660754

Unfortunately the cross bars did not fit their intended use. I thought I double checked my vehicle, 2008 Ford Sport Trac XLT. I think I will be able to find another use. Excellent c/s and thank you for caring. 635413

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

2017 Toyota RAV4

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

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

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

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 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

I liked the speed of delivery and the product was as described. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is not because of product quality, I am just not sure yet that the connection between the rack and the rails is going to be solid for a long period of time. There is only 3 points of contact on the rails and it would be much better if the rails were encased by the brackets, which they are not. 469654

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

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

Customer service was phenomenal! My original order was back ordered and I was contacted on a Sunday (wow!) to find another system that was available. My new order arrived three days later, no issues! The cross rails were quick to install and I’m quite pleased! There is a slight air noise when driving with the system up but I listen to music and then it’s barely noticeable! Fantastic, I’m beyond thrilled! 506447

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

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

Malone Roof Rails MPG201: Just got it installed and was very easy to do with the instructions on the box its self. I am 5'6 and I installed it on my '2012 Ford Escape and had to use a step stool on each side of the car to reach my roof. The quality of the rails were better then I expected. I bought it to put longer lumber for projects that won't fit in the back of my car. I might come back in the future and get a cargo basket. 428622

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

We own a 2017 Acadia. I first bought a generic brand Roof Rack and crossbar set from a source online that did not specialize in cargo transportation. I put it together and thought "no way" do I dare drive down the highway with it. It was very cheaply made. I returned it and bought from etrailer.com. Their website was great. I was able to tell if their products fit my vehicle. I could instantly see the difference in quality as well. Very Pleased! 670064

Solid bars, no rattling, no issues, have had on the vehicle for a year. Left the bars on for the winter but took off the bike racks I had mounted on them.

This has proved to be a fine rack, easy to get on and off. Sturdy for several kayaks and I could use my Thule kayak rack on it. The gripping device is not perfectly tailored for each individual car but it is a solid attachment system. You can't go wrong for the price. As for the whistling, yeah they do. Mine did not for a while, then started whistling. I tried to plug up the little gaps in the attachment and the noise got worse. Go figure. I take if off for long trips because I find it irritating. Others may whistle as well, who knows. Otherwise no complaints. 642678

Ask the Experts about this Malone Roof Rack

Do you have a question about this 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.

  • The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack 58" # MPG216 or the 50 inch # MPG215 are aero style roof racks that will fit your 2019 Subaru Forester. I would lean toward the longer option, but recommend you check the width of your canoe to determine your need. You can alternatively use the steel square bar # MPG201 or # MPG202 for a more economical option but I recommend upgrading for the minor price difference to reduce wind noise and give you the top channel mount for compatible accessories.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

The 2014 Ford Escape is rated for a maximum recommended load of 100lbs on the vehicle if it does not have a moon roof, and 40lbs if it does. This puts quite a cap on the amount of weight that the vehicle can carry, as this limit includes any carrier and crossbar solution that you are planning on using, plus the weight of the kayaks. You'll want to invest in a full roof rack system. Primarily, the ease...

  • Will Malone SteelTop Roof Rack # MPG201 Fit 2014 VW Jetta SportWagen to Secure Thule Box
  • Yes, the Malone SteelTop Roof Rack # MPG201 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your 2014 VW Jetta SportWagen with the raised side rails and it will work perfectly. The square crossbars will indeed allow you to mount your existing Thule cargo box along with just about any other roof-mounted accessory you might accumulate down the line. The included feet with this rack will mount right to those raised side rails and the bars will provide you with a 165 pound weight capacity. I...

  • How to Carry a Kayak and SUP on a 2003 Subaru Legacy
  • The main difference between the Swagman Contour Rooftop Kayak Carrier System part # S65148 and the Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrier System part # MPG118MD is that the Malone option will allow for the use of the Malone TelosXL Load Assist Module part # MPG351XL which aids in loading. They are essentially the same carrier aside from this aspect. Therefore, if you need help with loading I would go with the Malone system but if not the Swagman system will work fine for you. They will both...

  • Does the SportRack Roof Rack Lock to the Side Rails of a 2016 Toyota 4Runner
  • The SportRack roof rack # SR1098 for your 2016 Toyota 4Runner features a special fastener that requires a special tool (included) to tighten or loosen the rack on the factory side rails on the vehicle. So while it isn't a traditional lock it is a theft deterrent because of the uncommon fastener/tool. For a system with traditional locks (at the feet and bars) I recommend Malone roof rack # MPG201. I have linked a video review of this roof rack for you.

  • Availability of Roof Rack to Fit Factory Roof Rack on a 2006 Honda Odyssey
  • We do have a roof rack from Yakima that is compatible with the factory roof rack on your 2006 Honda Odyssey. this consists of the 58" CrossBars # Y00409, Q Towers # Y00124, and Q133 Q Clips # Y00733. Please note that this roof rack mounts to your door frame and doesn't actually install on any mounting points that you may have from the factory roof rack. If you were referring to the raised side rails along the roof of your Odyssey then we do have the Malone Roof Rack # MPG201 which comes...

  • 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...

  • Kayak Carrier for 95 Pound Kayak and 2005 Mazda Tribute or 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander
  • Since your 2005 Mazda Tribute has crossbars that run side to side on the roof I will make my recommendations for it. The Outlander would need to have crossbars added if it only has side rails and that represents additional cost. I recommend the Rhino-Rack J-style carrier # S512 since it can fold down flat and also has a weight capacity of 99 pounds. You will want to check the roof rack and/or the owner's manual for the Tribute though to make sure it is rated high enough for your 95 pound...

  • How to Carry 4 Bikes on a 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen
  • All of the trailer hitches available for the 2011 Volkswagen Jetta Sportwagen are Class I rated trailer hitches. You are correct in your assessment that a Class I hitch can only carry a maximum of 2 bikes. The issue that you run into with a third or fourth bike is not just the weight of the bikes, but the distance that weight is placed from the trailer hitch. They put additional leverage on the hitch that it cannot support. It is similar to using a pipe extension on a wrench to break a...

  • Malone Roof Rack Crossbar Length Options for 2015 Subaru Forester with Raised Side Rails
  • Both the 50-inch # MPG201 and 58-inch # MPG202 versions of Malone's roof racks are confirmed fits on the 2015 Subaru Forester, but in fact their similar 65-inch square bar rack is also confirmed to fit, part # MPG203. These and all other roof racks for your Forester are displayed on the page I linked for you. All three racks fit the same way and have the same 165-lbs maximum weight capacity so your selection can be based on preference and how large your rooftop cargo items are. I suggest...

  • Recommended Roof Rack with Short Crossbars for 2012 Jeep Liberty
  • The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack # MPG201 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2012 Jeep Liberty. The square crossbars on this rack measure 50 inches long but they cannot be adjusted to prevent them from overhanging the edge of your vehicle. For a shorter crossbar that will also provide a more OEM appearance on your Jeep, I highly recommend taking a look at the Yakima RailBar # Y00436-2. These low-profile crossbars will clamp right to the factory side rails and won't extend...

  • Will a Yakima SkyBox Cargo Box Fit the Factory Roof Rack on a 2011 Toyota Highlander
  • I checked with Yakima and they do not list any cargo boxes as a fit for the factory roof rack on the 2011 Toyota Highlander. There are some factory crossbars that are too flimsy to properly support a loaded cargo box. I have heard of this issue on some GM vehicles as well. You have some options though. You could add aftermarket crossbars but this does add quite a bit more to the grand total and the one set listed for your Highlander has parts that have been or are going to be discontinued. However,...

  • Malone AirFlow Roof Rack for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with Factory Side Rails
  • I did a little research and found that the correct AirFlow roof rack for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with the factory side rails is # MPG215. There isn't a 211 that will fit your Golf but there is # MPG201. The difference between it and the 215 is that the 201 has rectangular bars and 215 has aero bars which are quieter and have less drag. I have included links to videos covering the features of these 2 styles of roof rack. If you can tell me what you want to carry on the roof...

  • Compatibility of Malone Steeltop Roof Rack and Rooftop Tent
  • The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack - Square Crossbars - 50" Long # MPG201 are comparable to most roof rack systems with a capacity of 165 lbs max and minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches. The rooftop tents like the Yakima SkyRise Tent for Roof Rack Crossbars - 2 Person - 400 lbs # Y07407 or 3 person # Y07406 distribute the weight differently than most other roof mounted accessories due to the stabilizing ladder and tray. The weight of the 3 person tent for traveling is just 120 lbs and the...

  • 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.

  • Availability of Roof Rack Crossbars To Carry Kayaks on 2006 Pontiac Vibe With Factory Side Rails
  • The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack, part # MPG201, is a correct fit for your 2006 Pontiac Vibe with the factory installed raised side rails. To carry two 45-lb kayaks on the roof of your Pontiac Vibe you will want to first check the weight capacity of the roof on your vehicle. If it is lower than the 165 lb weight capacity of the Malone rack then you will need to go by the lower weight capacity as your guideline. I have done some research and cannot verify the weight capacity of the roof...

All of our aftermarket roof rack options for the 2009 Rogue with this type of roof setup are shown on the page I linked for you. The two very-low-cost roof racks we can offer you come from Malone, their 50-inch bar rack # MPG201 and the 58-inch bar version # MPG202. Both racks have the same 165-lb weight rating but the longer bar rack may well provide a nicer fit for your SUP...

The Malone square bars have the same dimensions as the Thule square bars and the Malone rack can be positioned along the rails of the Crosstrek to match the bar spread requirements of the basket. I have linked video reviews of both products for you.

  • 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ Roof Rack and Roof Basket Recommendation
  • To install the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 59504 that you referenced you will need to first decide on a roof rack on your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee. If your Grand Cherokee has existing side rails that run front to back on your roof, then I recommend the Rhino Rack system that includes the # RRVA118B-2 and # RRSX100. In this system the # RRVA118B-2 is the Rhino Rack Black Vortex Aero style of crossbars. The # RRSX001 is the SX series leg kit that connects the crossbars to your...

  • Inexpensive Cargo Box Recommendation for a 2002 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • There are a few things to consider before choosing a cargo box for your 2002 Subaru Outback Wagon. First, do you have a factory roof rack with crossbars on your vehicle? If not, you will need to add a set of crossbars like the Malone SteelTop, # MPG201. Both the Malone crossbars and the factory crossbars are adjustable along the side rails on your vehicle so you should have no problem using the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Carrier, # SR7018. This cargo carrier requires a crossbar spread...
