Video Transcript for Review of Malone Watersport Carriers - Canoe - MPG112MD

Today we're going to take a look at the Malone Big Foot Pro Roof Rack Canoe Carrier with Tie Downs. Now these universal mount gun wale brackets with the padded bases will let you transport a canoe on your roof rack cross bars. It's also great for carrying a ladder, lumber, or any open hull boat. Basically when you install these on your cross bar, you put them across from each other, just like that. Then what you put in there is how you would carry it, sort of like a channel there.Application: This will work on round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory cross bars. The padded brackets grip the canoe.

Protect them from scratches and abrasions. They do have high sided bases here that will hold the canoe in place during transport. It does come with the two load straps with the cam buckles to secure your canoe to your roof rack. If you notice under the buckle, they do have nice padded protecting padding under that to keep it, the cam buckle from scratching your roof. Strap length on these is 15 feet.

Also comes with two bow/stern tie downs which will anchor the canoe to your vehicle with these hooks.It's a very quick, easy installation on most cross bar styles. There's no tools required. Basically when you go to install these, they use these universal jaws brackets which secure to the cross bars with the integrated hand knobs. These brackets are a steel bracket. Have a nice rubber vinyl coating over them to protect them when you tighten them down.

Basically what you would do is take your bolt, drop it through there, just like that. Then put your bracket on there so your bolts come through there. Then you use your wing nuts here to just tighten it down on both ends. That's how you'd install it to your cross bar.Now if you notice, they did give you two different lengths of bolts here because it depends on your cross bar thickness. They give you eight of the 50 millimeter long and eight of the 60 millimeter long bolts.

So you choose the bolts that will would fit your thickness of cross bar.The other nice feature on these . if you look on the bottom of them, that slot right here, that allows it to fit onto a T slot cross bar. But you do . it does require a T-slot hardware kit which we do sell separately and that will allow you to slide it into a T-slot cross bar. A T-slot hardware kit that we sell separately on our website is part number NPG915.We also sell a truck rack, ladder rack accessory kit that will allow it to attach to a truck rack, ladder rack. Again, we sell it separately on our website. It's pare number NPG1498.Now these are nice molded nylon brackets, very durable, corrosion resistant. This does come with everything shown here on the table. Nice set of detailed instructions on how to install everything.A few specs on this: the minimum cross bar spread it fits on is 24 inches. Carrying capacity is one canoe. The weight capacity on this is 165 pounds.But that should do it for the review on the Malone Big Foot Pro Roof Rack Canoe Carrier with Tie Downs.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Watersport Carriers

  • Economic Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier Compatible with 2019 Subaru Forester
  • 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 To Secure a Wenonah Spirit II Canoe On a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • I do have some options for you but the Load Stops for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRRLH2 that you referenced are not going to be sufficient to secure your Wenonah Spirit II Canoe because they don't offer enough support/stability. This canoe is going to require a much more secure carrier for which I recommend using the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG112MD which will fit your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars. The Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier has...

  • Malone Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier for 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • We can help you figure out a workable roof rack/canoe carrier option for transporting your Old Town Saranac 146. This boat is 14-feet 6-inches long, 36-inches wide and weighs 79-lbs. 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...

  • How to Carry a Canoe on the Roof of a Class C Motorhome
  • The best roof rack for your Class C motorhome would depend on the shape of it's roof. As long as your roof does not have rounded edges and does not exceed 85-1/2" in width then I recommend the SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack part # SR1020. This system will provide you with 2 square load bars that have a capacity up to 200 lbs. If your roof does have rounded edges or exceeds 85-1/2" in width then I recommend using a track system like Yakima HardTop SL Roof Rack part # Y01618 which comes...

  • How to Carry a Boat and Three Small Kayaks With 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • That's a lot of kayaks! The best thing for you to do is get a roof rack to transport the kayaks and a trailer for the canoe, which can be used to carry kayaks when the time comes for the little ones to make the transition to larger kayaks. To start you will need a trailer hitch for your 2007 Honda Odyssey, Draw-Tite # 75270, and Wiring Harness # 118438 in order to power the lights on the trailer. I've added links to installation videos of both parts on an '07 Odyssey for you to check...

  • Canoe Carriers for Use on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer
  • The Malone MicroSportXT trailer # MPG460XT does come with 78-inch square crossbars and these are the widest part of the entire trailer. Longer crossbars could pose a hazard so I do not recommend changing. Since the Old Town Saranac 146 has a base weight of 79-lbs and a width of 36-inches your existing bars should work fine to let you use two of the Malone MegaWing Carrier # MPG207. Each MegaWing carrier can handle boats up to 150-lbs. If you prefer a carrier that will allow you to...

  • Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier Recommendations for a 2008 Chevy TrailBlazer
  • If you are looking to set the canoe directly on top of your roof, then you will want a carrier with foam pads like the Swagman Propsector Canoe Carrier, # S65155. This carrier was specifically designed for vehicles with or without a roof rack. The foam pads will protect the canoe and your roof from scratches. The straps are sold separately, so you will want to pick up part # S65137 for straps and part # Y04031 for bow and stern tie-downs. Based on the weight of your canoe and depending...

  • Gunwale Style Kayak Carrier for Yakima Round Bars
  • I recommend the Malone BigFoot Pro gunwale-style carrier # MPG112MD for use on your round Yakima roof rack bars. The BigFoot Pro features tall bases made of molded nylon for durability and corrosion resistance and it includes both load straps and bow/stern tie downs. Its 165-lb weight rating means it's good for kayaks and also for canoes. The similar Thule Portage Canoe Carrier # TH819 also fits your round bars but it has a slightly lower weight rating than the Malone.

  • Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier Recommendation for a 2000 Toyota Camry
  • To carry your canoe on your 2000 Toyota Camry, I strongly recommend installing a roof rack and using a canoe specific carrier on the roof rack. For a roof rack, I recommend using the Rhino-Rack square crossbar roof rack which consists of the following parts: 46" Euro Bar Crossbars # RREB118B 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA Euro Bar Adapter # RREB-FK1 Custom DK Fit Kit # DK110 This roof rack uses square steel crossbars that are more than capable of supporting your 95 lb canoe and...

  • Will SportRack Roof Rack Work on 2012 Mazda 2 Hatchback to Carry Canoe
  • The SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack # SR1010 will work straight-up without any adapters on your 2012 Mazda 2 hatchback and allow you to carry a canoe, so long as you remain under its 130 lb weight capacity. There are canoe carriers you can use that work as loadstops; foam blocks are an option as well but do not offer the same type of security which is why I strongly recommend the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG112MD. The Malone carrier uses brackets which are...
