Video Transcript for Review of Malone Watersport Carriers - Bunk Style Kayak and Canoe Cart - MAL54ZR

Hello everybody. This is Jeff at etrailer.com. Today we're gonna take a look at this Malone Traverse TRX-S Bunk Style Kayak Beach Cart with the balloon tires. Now this bunk style kayak and canoe cart will help you transport your large boat by yourself. It uses these adjustable padded bunks here to accommodate most hull shapes. And it does have foam padding on these bunks to help prevent damage to your hull.

What's nice about this is these bunk posts can be adjusted horizontally anywhere from three inches out to 19 1/2 inches wide to accommodate most kayaks or canoes. And just to show you how you would do that let me spin this around and show you on the very back. You'll notice the bottom here, it has these black adjustment knobs. You just loosen those and that'll let you slide these posts horizontally. As we mentioned anywhere from three inches all the way out to 19 1/2 inches wide.

And when you find the right one for your application you just tighten these down and it'll hold it in that position. Also what's nice is these posts can be adjusted vertically. Has two different positions here. Right now I have it in the highest position. Also has a lower position, but that's pretty simple too.

All you have to do is pop out this clip and that'll let you slide it down. You just find which works best for your canoe or kayak. Might be the high position, might be the low position. And then once you find the right one you just put your pin back through there. And get the hole lined up.

There we go. Put the pin through. And once the pin goes all the way through, you just you clip it and it'll hold it just like that. So it is adjustable both horizontally and vertically. Also, if you notice, it does come with the two-piece cam-buckle load straps, which will secure the boat to the cart. Basically once you get your canoe or kayak on there you just wrap these around there, tighten it down and it'll hold it in place. We mentioned the balloon style tires on here. They roll easily over sand and other soft terrain. So this cart is great for use on beaches. Now it does include this nice hand pump for inflation of the tires. Even comes with some adapters here that allow you to blow up other water equipment. Now this cart will disassemble for easy portability. Basically the wheels just pop off with the push of a button. The frame will flatten by removing the two safety pins here. And just to show you how to do that, what we're gonna do, is I'm gonna zoom in on the end here. There's a little push, spring loaded push button on the axle. You just push down, that'll release the tire, just like that. And we'll do the same on this side. Push it down. And that'll release the tire. Oops. And with the tire off, just like that put our cap back on. End cap popped off. And then all you have to do is pop your clips, out here. Pop this clip off, pull your pin out and then both these posts can be removed. And once you get both of those removed. So basically you can see it all, pretty much can store in a small area. Could even probably take this on the canoe or the boat with you and put it under a netting. Hold it in place. Now the frame on this. It is a Marine grade aluminum frame. Has nice silver anodized finish to it to resist corrosion. A few specs on this. The load capacity is 250 pounds. Overall weight when this is all put together is about 11 pounds. And the last thing I want to do is put this back together and give you you a few dimensions on this. So again, what we'll do is just go ahead and push the button, slide the tire and wheel back on. We'll go over here, push the button, slide that tire and wheel back on. And then we'll go ahead and take our post. And we'll line that up. Put our pin through there once we get the hole lined up. Once the pin goes all the way through, clip that, and we go over here, and we'll do this one in the same way. Just, get the hole to line up, push the pin all the way through, clip it. And now you're all ready to go. It's all back into one piece ready to tow your canoe or your kayak. Basically the overall dimensions on this. If we go from one end to the other, 36 inches wide The length on these bunks are gonna be 24 inches long and then the height, depending again what position you have it in. Right now it's in the high position. So the overall height from the ground up to here is gonna be about 19 inches tall. If you dropped it down to the lower one it's about a four inch difference, be 15 inches tall. But that should do it for the review on the Malone Traverse TRX-S Bunk Style Kayak Beach Cart with the balloon tires..

Product delivered fast and arrived as expected. Easy to assemble. Even had an air pump to get the tires inflated. I’m excited to try it with my kayak on the ocean beach sand.




by:

Excellent weight capacity and decent build quality. Simple to put together out of the box. I would recommend to Malone that the back-plates for the screw adjustments be changed to a less corrosive material like aluminum.
