Video Transcript for Malone J-Style Kayak Carrier TelosXL Load Assist Module Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look, the TelosXL load assist module for J style kayak carriers. Part number MPG351XL. This system can be especially helpful for assisting you when loading up your kayaks. It's also great if you have a taller vehicle or if you've been kayaking all day and you just don't have the strength to load it back up.The Malone Telos is great for getting your kayak safely on the roof of your vehicle. Now as you can see, once we have our top plate secured, its designed to slightly bow, making a ramp for our kayak. That way it's easy to push up when we get all the way to the top.It's gonna work with your Malone downloader, or Malone J loader.

Once it's in place, it telescopes out to the ground for support. From there, we can set our kayak in place and begin raising it up. Once it's at the top, we can just push it in place.Once our kayak is in place, it's as simple as unhooking the Telos and collapsing it down and stowing it in our vehicle. The cradles themselves ratchet up in inch and 3/4 increments, making it easy to get to the top. They also feature a lock to prevent it from dropping.

The cradles are padded for grip, they're also gonna prevent any damage to our kayaks.The Telos features two points of adjustability for various vehicle heights. At its lowest point, it measures 58 and 3/4 of an inch. To adjust it up, we'll first pull out the top cylinder here, loosen up the two knobs and we're gonna pull it all the way out to about here to where it's flush with this bracket knob here. Then we can tighten it up. Then we can adjust out our telescoping foot.

Loosen up the knob here and then pull it out.At its highest point, it measures about 98 and 1/4 inches. Here at the bottom it features a folding foot. This is so we can stand on it while operating it. It also features a hole so we can anchor it. You will have to provide your own anchors.The whole system is made out of heavy duty plastic and aluminum, that way it's easier to handle.

It has a weight capacity of 75 pounds, so you wanna be sure that your kayak doesn't exceed that. It also features a limited lifetime warranty. Now we'll show you how to get it set up.Once you've got your J loader or downloader in place, we'll simply just clip it in. From there, we'll adjust out our upper cylinder first. Once again being sure not to pass all the way through the first bracket, hen we can tighten it up. Then we'll adjust out our bottom cylinder. Now when you adjust out that bottom cylinder, you want to be sure you get the right angle, that way it doesn't come in contact with your vehicle.You can see I've got about an inch here, I'm gonna give it just a little bit more and then tighten it up. Once I've got one installed, the second one installs the same way. Now at this point before you even think about grabbing your kayak, it's important that you first fold in your mirror. Otherwise you could risk breaking it off. Now that we're all set, let's grab our kayak and set it in place.We wanna be sure that it's even front to back and center. Then we'll put one foot on the plate and begin raising. We'll go up, roughly six to eight inches and then go the other side. We'll continue working our way up until we reach the very top. Then we'll just push it on.If you're unloading your kayak, you simply just reverse your steps. Now you may be thinking you'd like to raise both sides up at the same time, however, it's not recommended. Just take your time and do one side at a time.If you're working with two kayaks today, one on this side and one on the other side, we can simply unhook it and then go over to the other side. You will however wanna be sure that it's the Malone downloader or the Malone J loader to work with the Telos system.And that's gonna complete our look at the Malone TelosXL load assist module for J style kayak carriers. Part number MPG351XL.

Second order from etrailer, first was for a hitch on the rav4 this one was for a kayak rack and lift assist. One reason for the initial and revisit are the videos. They are well thought out , provide enough info without being boring, and prices that are in line with any other retailer. I will do business with them again. 670024

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! 517109

Installation instructions need improvement. They have black and white photographs. It would help if they were in color. Also, it would help if there were multiple views for each step, not just a single view. Some of the written instructions were vague and unclear. Two different length mounting bolts were provided but instructions did not specify which to use. I installed my DownLoader with the AirFlow 2 cross bars. Even the longer 70 mm bolts provided I feel are too short. I would prefer more thread engagement. While these do fit the AirFlow 2, it seems a little bit of an awkward match. The carrier brackets have a square notched cutout which appear designed for square bars instead. These worked for me, but I’m not in love with this system. 658848

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!!!!! 436149

by:

Used the product for the first time last weekend. My kayak is heavy and wide. The straps that came with this are not long enough if you load via product instructions. Otherwise they worked great. Take note that when putting them on a truck, they get very high in the air to load your kayak easily if it has any weight - mine is 100lbs. You will need a load assist of some type or 2-3 people and some step ladders. Quality product! 514450

The Malone AirFlow 2 Roof Rack is the most ridiculous bargain I've come across in a long while. I'd been preparing myself to spend $4-$500 on a Thule. A product I was familiar with and had used in the past with great success with Volkswagen's. After some simple research, Malone kept coming up as a affordable, comparable alternative . These days when you see something that is literally less than half of what your planning to spend, your first thought is "too good to be true" or "you get what you pay for". After calling and consulting with Stacey at etrailer.com I purchased the system and COULD NOT be HAPPIER !! It took me less than 20 minutes to have it completely installed on my 2013 Tucson. The construction of the racks and hardware is top quality. My main use of the system will be hauling kayaks and canoes which this will far exceed. Other than the fact that I saved about $300, etrailer prides itself on customer service and that I can, and will attest to their claim. I called and had a bunch of questions before ordering, Stacey was extremely helpful, knowledgeable, patient, and most of all courteous !! There is no doubt that etrailer.com has become my new source for any towing or recreational needs for my vehicle. 690018

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. 636101

Great service from etrailer.com! The Malone roof racks and Kayak carriers arrived on time, went on easily, and seem to be very sturdy and reliable. The only thing I could wish for is that the buckles on the tie-down straps had some kind of a rubber coating. Thanks! 540418

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. 667508

Review from a similar Downloader in Watersport Carriers


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. 737726

  • Side-Load Kayak Carriers for 2007 Yukon XL
    For a tall vehicle like your 2007 Yukon I recommend two side-load kayak carriers that face to the outsides of the vehicle since these will make loading easier. My kayaks are the same size as yours and although they are not particularly heavy (about 40-lbs each) I like not having to lift them any more than necessary! All side-load carriers that fit factory roof racks are shown on the page I linked for you and they are all pretty similar, but in terms of features and value it's hard to...

The carrier also includes small load-assist ramps on both J's of the carrier, helping support at least a little weight of the kayak as you get it onto the roof of your vehicle.

If the curve is too close to your vehicle roof, then move the crossbars closer so the load can be properly supported.
