I'm happy with the Malone Downloader with TelosXL Load Assist. I wanted help loading my kayak onto my Toyota Rav4 since I go kayaking alone (and I am a small but strong 60 year old woman). The TelosXL definitely helps getting the kayak up to the J cradles. I still need a sturdy step stool to push it from the loader to the cradles. The things that I think could use some adjusting: on the TelosXL I found that the foot pedals can slip on asphalt. I cut some non-stick pads out that I take with me if I'm loading/unloading on asphalt (see picture that I am including). Also with the TelosXL the assembly guides are too far apart. When the assembly is extended to touch the ground, only one of the guides still has the extender in it. This makes it less stable. Malone might consider putting one more guide between the 2. As far as the Downloader goes, the tie down straps need to have the buckle completed covered to avoid dings on the car. Also, the bow/stern lines should include a ratcheting system. I ended up paying extra to get the Thule tie down straps and bow/stern lines because they are better.




by:

We have 2 52lb kayaks. I was nervous about getting them onto our car and this downloader definitely helps.




by:

Seems to work very well, I was a bit concerned about how it would be to get it off the load assist into the J carrier, but it was actually very easy. I'm going on top of a truck bed rack, so it's up over my head at full extension of arms and all, not the safest place to be which is what I needed this to fix, seems great. Bonus is that the combination doesn't conflict with my awning mounted below t slot bars.




by:

Arrived on time. Packing very good. Setting up easy, used on Volvo XC60, 70mm bolts OK, however 80mm would be better. Looks sturdy enough for my 45 lbs. kayak. Loading and unloading quite easy. Straps could be longer, I tried to secure them inside the car but one of them slipped out through a door gasket. Rubber plugs at the foots of stays tend to fall out and I finally gave up. Those are minor items not decreasing any usability.




by:

These so far are excellent, I won't actually load my kayak until tomorrow, but so far so good. I found the poles fit better now that I know the bottom foot telescopes as well.

Malone Telos Load Assist is an amazing solution to lifting a kayak onto rooftop when one of you is Vertically challenged and the other has no upper body strength. Will be great for when we are 75 or 80 years old and still kayaking. We looked at Thule Hullavator and putting aside its big price, you simply cannot fit a second kayak in a standard cradle on most cars if you have a Thule Hullavator on the other side, the square crossbars you would need would extend way too far out. The Malone Telos is well made and ratcheting System is easy. I give the Telos 5 Stars however, Since I bought the Telos and the Malone Downloader as a package, I have to take off a star for the Malone Downloader because the knobs to tighten the rubber coated mount brackets to cars cross bars loosen with each trip and you have to check and tighten them regularly. I bought some longer malone bolts and added lock washers which helps some but you still need to inspect and tighten. Also, the rubber coating on the Malone attachment brackets cracks after tightening. etrailer’s Service by email and phone is outstanding though and I will certainly buy other products through etrailer again.

Malone Telos-XL with J racks has opened a new chapter in our retirement. Loading and unloading kayaks was becoming more difficult with larger vehicles. We researched other products but were immediately impressed with the design, quality, and price. Ease of use is best feature. A great product!

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


The Malone DownLoader is very good value for the money. The J-style cradle is nice when you have to muscle a kayak on top of a tall crossover or SUV. You can hook the edge of the cockpit onto the base of the cradle and flip the kayak up onto the metal hoop support. Carrier installation and removal is easy and doesn't require any tools. Materials are good, but not great and that's what prevents this product from getting 5 stars IMO. The foam padding is nice enough and has been durable, but the metal plate that attaches the carrier to the roof rails is plastic coated steel and the plastic cracks over time, and leads to rust on the steel plate beneath. Not a big deal, but it might compromise the plate over time. I also wish that the provided nylon straps were longer, and that the ratchet buckles were covered in rubber to protect the roof of the vehicle and the windshield when you're trying to get them around the hull of the boat. We quickly replaced these with longer aftermarket straps that have rubber covers over the buckles. Those minor points aside, the Malone DownLoader kayak carrier gets the job done easily and safely, and does so at a very affordable price point.

Used 2 sets of these for the first time today! I was nervous about getting 2 kayaks onto the car. The videos are incredibly helpful and made this easy for us to get onto our RAV4 with the Malone downloader. Great product and we had a fun time kayaking!

Sturdy build. Love the folding feature. These fit as advertised on my truck rack with the T slot adapter kit. I carried my kayaks on a 3000 mile trip and they always stayed securely in place.

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


These kayak carriers are excellent! We use these on our Malone roof rack which is on our Rav4. The carriers are easy to use and assemble to the roof rack very simply. We did order longer straps from a separate manufacturer just to be safe because we wanted to make sure they were long enough for our Pelican kayaks.

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


Mounted two malone downloaders on am aftermarket rack on my ram 3500. The cross bars are 3.5 inches wide but the rack hardware accomidates this no problem. I had to purchase longer bolts as the cross bars are thick amd the bolts that came with the racks were not long enough. Used the rack this weekend and theey are amazing. Loadinf amd unloading our 17ft seawards was a breeze and they were very secure during transport. Great rack great price great service!!!!!




by:

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers



The yellow pads on the crossbars are
pool noodles secured by zip ties. They provide padding for a third or even a fourth kayak.




by:

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


These Malone kayak carriers really do the job. Paired with the Malone Telos Load Assist, getting our sea kayaks onto the topper of our Toyota Tundra is easy for this 70 year old. No more major lifting causing aggravation for my back. Tying down each kayak is quick and easy.




by:

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


I used these on Toyota Sienna with the Malone aero cross bars. Like others have said, you will need longer bolts than provided to mount on the aero bars. I also used ratchet tie straps since I didn’t feel confident with the tie downs provided. (I had a 100+ mile trip coming up.)
Overall great quality, price, and service from etrailer. The short bolts are the only thing stopping it from a 5 star rating.




by:

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


The rack itself seems great, BUT neither 60mm or 70 mm mounting bolts work for the VA style 2500 series rack. I now have to go to lowes and buy AT LEAST 80mm if not longer so the T Knob can screw in tightly to Jaws adapter and that tightens to the cross bar. The T Knobs have about an inch before you get to the teeth and connect in order to tighten. The thick Jaws are almost too think and takes up room for screw length. The pictures I took you can tell it wont work on a series 2500 VA. I set the T Knob at the least I could before they fell off the screw. I'm surprised no one has complained until now. The other picture shows the parts with the 1 inch space inside the one T Knob

Malone DownLoader Kayak Carriers are a perfect design. Fold down locking mechanism when not in use is a great feature as well as adjustable upright angles for transporting kayaks. Easy to follow instructions along with sturdy tie downs. Highly recommended!




by:

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


I'm very pleased with the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier. Installation was a breeze, much quicker than I anticipated. Our tandem kayak (13.5' long), easily slid into place, fit well and secure in the carrier, and the tie-downs made securing the bow & stern a cinch - and there was plenty of room for our paddleboard! The best feature is the ability to fold the carriers down when not in use - so much better than having to take the rack off after each use.

The only disappointment I have with the product is the "universal fit mounting blocks". They are designed to fit a Malone roof rack with the rectangular cut out for the roof rack but my factory roof rack has oval shaped bars. The carriers do mount but they lean to one side.

Overall, I'm very pleased and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a kayak carrier!

I ordered two sets of these. One came missing the bag of bolts and screws. The good people at etrailer contacted the manufacturer and had a replacement parts bag sent out. Thank you etrailer! Otherwise product works well.

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


These racks are easy to install and loading our 40 and 50 pound kayaks is easy as well. We hauled over 1500 miles this year, many at max highway speeds, with no issues. All was snug, quiet, and safe. But, always a but, right away, the plastic strap guides popped right off (1 or 2 disappeared). Some black electrical tape fixed that. And the black plastic/vinyl coating on the mounting brackets cracked and peeled off right away too. More tape. However, both Etrailer and Malone were exceptionally responsive to my complaint and suggestions.




by:

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


These attached easily to our roof rack and worked well with the downloader rails. The straps that are included are not as well made as our old Thule straps which have much more padded protection around the buckle, so we will continue to use the Thule straps. The attached strap guide on top of the carrier bar is split for some reason which allows the strap (either brand) to slip out. Again, the Thule kayak carrier has a top threading attachment that works better.

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


So far so good. Product is easy to set up and instructions are easy to understand. Mounted on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with OEM crossbars. It feels sturdy and durable. I like the folding feature easy to raise and lower.

  • Will 2 Sets of Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Fit OEM Crossbars on a 2012 Toyota Sienna
    Installing 2 of the Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD on your 2012 Toyota Sienna is definitely possible. When in the upright position these measure 17" long but you'll be taking a bit of that length away because you will be able to put the end with the loading ramp over the ends of your crossbar system. Even though you can fit 2 sets of the DownLoader on your Sienna it would still be worth mapping out the distance and try holding your kayaks at an angle inside that length. If...

    The arms on the TelosXL # MPG114MD-351XL are 12" deep with a bend at the end. I called my friend over at Malone and they confirmed that a 15" tall kayak was not unusual and would fit on the Telos XL arms. One thing to note is that the weight capacity is 75 lbs. While your tandem kayak sounds like it will be fine, larger kayaks also tend to be heavier which is why the arms were designed the way they are to prevent accidentally overburdening them.
