These kayak carriers do exactly what we wanted them to do. They hold the kayak safely and securely. Easy to use and easy to install or remove. Our only problem was that we had to but longer carriage bolts for it to work on our Nissan Xterra. I definitely recommend this product. I just wish they included longer bolts.

The Malone J Racks Work perfectly and fit my kayak well. They are well made and I would highly recommend them.

I bought two sets of these to go on the Malone trailer I bought last year from etrailer and they are the perfect solution for my paddling gear. I have these mounted on the outside of the bars, leaving plenty of room for my canoe to slip in between our two kayaks. The price was right and shipping was over a month in coming, but with the virus causing delays it was to be expected. etrailer kept me updated and let me know the day they came in and were ready to be shipped. A quality company that I highly recommend. Thanks to you all at etrailer !

Ordered a replacement J Hook part and a new set of J-hooks from etrailer. Both work great, and the price was right. The delivery was quick too (paid for 3 day delivery but came in 2 days!)

Very cool system. I put these on an atv trailer and now I can safely transport 4 kayaks. Installed in about one hour and thirty minutes. I highly recommend this product.

Review from a similar J-Pro in Watersport Carriers


The product was just what I ordered. I'm expanding my kayak trailer to hold up to 4, so I ordered wider cross bars and another carrier. A little frustrating to find it was not really in stock, however, communication from the etrailer team was outstanding.

I've owned several different kayak j-hooks, but the Malone racks are definitely made with superior quality. I would definitely purchase them again and highly recommend them to anyone looking for kayak racks.

Review from a similar J-Pro in Watersport Carriers


These were exactly what I needed. Wanted something that had the ability to use the t-slot as the VW cross bars don't fit the universal adapters easily. With the Malone t-slot adapter kit these fit perfectly.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Watersport Carriers

  • Comparing Malone J-Style Kayak Carriers
    You're correct the J-Pro2, part # MPG117MD, is a newer model of the J-Pro, part # MPG116MD. The difference between the two is the J-Pro2 has more padding to protect the kayaks. Other than that and the color they're basically the same. The J-Loader, part # MPG118MD, goes a little further to add the ramps which help with loading. You slide the kayak up and over the ramps helping to guide it in place instead of having to lift it over the ends of the carrier like with the J-Pro and J-Pro2....

  • Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier for 2019 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Crossbars
    The Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG117MD will fit your 2019 Toyota Rav4 only if the crossbar spread on your factory crossbars is at least 24". They are designed to fit most types of crossbars, including round, square, aero, elliptical, and most factory crossbars. If your factory bars don't meet this crossbar spread requirement, this and most other kayak carriers will not work. If your RAV4 has factory installed raised rails, you can replace your factory crossbars with a roof rack that...

  • Kayak Carrier for Fishing Kayak on 2011 Ford Escape with OEM Crossbars
    I've seen factory aero-shaped bars have a slant to them like you're describing and it can make items that only fit to one bar sit crooked. Accessories that attach to both bars, like a cargo box, are okay because when they grab both bars they sit level. In my opinion your best option is to replace your factory crossbars, especially since you already have the Malone J-Pro2, part # MPG117MD. The AirFlow2, part # MPG215, is a great economical option that fits both the Escape and the J-Pro2....

  • Higher Weight Capacity J Style Kayak Carrier Compatible with Malone MicroSport Trailer
    When it comes to carrying your 88-lbs kayak carrier on the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG462G2, it's not the trailer with that capacity but the Malone J-Pro Kayak Carrier # MPG117MD that has the 75-lbs capacity. You're not going to damage the trailer, but the carriers may not be able to handle the additional weight. With that said, you could swap out the Malone carrier that is included and use the Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carrier - Fixed - Universal Mount # S510 and can carry up to...

  • Malone Kayak Trailer for Malone J-Style Kayak Carrier
    The J-Style Kayak Carrier for Malone XtraLight Trailers # MPG566 are designed for use with Malone XtraLight kayak carriers, which have been discontinued, though there are Malone kayak carriers and trailers available. I recommend the Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G or, for easier storage, the version with a folding tongue, the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer # MPG460XT. With these trailers the kayak carrier I recommend, depending on how big of a kayak or kayaks you want to carry,...

  • Kayak Carrier That Fits on Thule TracRac Crossbars
    I have a solution for you, and the reason you're having such trouble is that the crossbars on the Thule TracRac Ladder Racks, similar to the # TH43002XT-501, are slightly larger than normal crossbars that are used on roof racks. Because of this, you won't be able to use any kayak carriers that mount with clamps or U bolts around the bars. With that being said, you will be able to use the Aero Style Crossbar T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG6604 to mount the Malone J-Pro MPG116MD or J-Pro 2 # MPG117MD...

  • Can Malone MicroSport Trailer Be Used to Transport 40" Wide Canoe and Kayak
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G that you referenced is perfect for transporting both your 40" wide canoe and an additional kayak. This trailer can support up to 500 pounds of weight with the integrated crossbars and offers plenty of width for both your watercrafts. To secure the canoe to the crossbars I recommend the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier # MPG112MD, and for the kayak the Malone J-Pro # MPG117MD will work perfectly. Both carriers include the needed tie-down straps...

  • How to Carry Two Kayaks on a 2018 Toyota 4Runner with Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack
    The Malone J-Pro2 Kayak Carrier part # MPG117MD is going to be your best option to carry two kayaks on the roof of your 2018 Toyota 4Runner. The J-Pro2 has a weight capacity of 75 lbs but you will need to make sure the weight of the two kayaks, roof rack, and carriers do not exceed the weight capacity of the vehicle's roof which is often different (less) than that of a roof rack like your Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack part # MPG216. The J-Pro2 has padded uprights to protect the kayak's finish,...

  • Transporting Two 68-lb Sit-on-Top Fishing Kayaks on 2017 Honda Ridgeline
    Since your fishing kayaks are fairly heavy at 68-lbs each you could be above the total weight capacity for the roof on your 2017 Honda Ridgeline by the time you add the weight of the Yakima roof rack and the two Malone J-style kayak carriers. Their Downloader # MPG114MD and J-Pro # MPG117MD carriers weigh 12-lbs each so two of these is another 25-lbs or so in addition to the 18-lb weight of the Yakima roof rack. The kayaks and these items total about 179-lbs and that is more than most vehicle...

They are the MaloneJ-Loader Kayak Carrier # MPG118MD, the Malone J-Pro2 # MPG117MD, and the J-Pro # MPG116MD. There are other styles that are also compatible but the J-style carrier is by far the most popular.

  • How to Carry Two to Four Kayaks and Two Bikes with a MicroSport Kayak Trailer
    Because you already have the Thule Glide and Set Kayak Carriers, I wouldn't recommend getting the Malone MicroSport for 4 Boats, part # MPG462G1. The reason for that is due to that particular trailer having carriers built on them, making your Thule carriers obsolete/useless. Instead, I recommend the 78" version, part # MPG460G. This will allow you to mount your kayaks in the same way you always have, just on the trailer instead of your roof. Along with that, you can use the Lippert...
