Expert Answers about Malone

  • Kayak Carrier That Works With TracRac Ladder Rack
  • There is a solution which is going to help save your kayaks from any further damage. To mount them on your TracRac # TA27000-01 I recommend using the Malone Foam Kayak Block # MPG159. These are going to fit directly over the four-inch bars on your Trac-Rac, and you would need two of them per kayak. For tie-downs you would want to use the Malone Bow and Stern Tie-Down Kit # MPG306. I've added links to review videos on both of these products for you.

  • Will Malone Profile18S Cargo Box Fit a 2014 Chrysler Town and Country with Factory Roof Rack
  • The Malone Profile18S cargo box # MPG910 will fit the factory roof rack on your 2014 Chrysler Town and Country if the center to center distance front the front bar to the rear bar is 25 to 40 inches. If you have a bar spread that is outside of those dimensions let me know what the spread is on your van and I can make other recommendations.

  • What Crossbar Spread (Distance Between Bars) Does Malone Cargo Box MPG911 Fit
  • The Malone cargo box part # MPG911 can fit on crossbar spreads of 25-40 inches like what you mentioned. This means that if you measure from crossbar center to crossbar center on your roof rack and that dimension is between 25 and 40 inches this box will fit and work well.

  • Recommended Dual Hitch Receiver Adapter for RV Bike Carrier and Tow Bar for Towing Small Car
  • To attach a hitch mounted bike rack while flat towing a vehicle behind your motorhome, you will need a dual hitch receiver like the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544. This will allow the top raised portion of the adapter to accept an RV compatible bike rack and the lower portion will accept your tow bar. This adapter will reduce your hitch receiver's tongue weight capacity by 50% but that won't be an issue with what you are looking to do as long as you are flat towing instead...

  • Malone Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Subaru Forester with Raised Side Rails
  • We have a Malone roof rack confirmed as a fit for your 2017 Subaru Forester with raised roof rails that includes bars that are 58 inches. For that you would want the # MPG202.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Mazda CX-5
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack # 59767 referenced in your question is not confirmed to fit your 2017 Mazda CX-5. If the roof on your CX-5 has factory installed rails that run front to back, I recommend looking at the Malone Roof Rack # MPG215. This is a nice roof rack system with an aerodynamic profile to reduce wind noise and a weight capacity of 165 pounds. The kit will include the two 50 inch long crossbars, 2 towers with keyed locks, 4 end...

  • Fitting a Malone Square Bar Roof Rack to a 2016 Subaru Impreza Wagon
  • The Malone Square Bar Roof Rack, part # MPG201 is a confirmed fit for the 2016 Subaru Impreza and the Inno Grab Max Ski and Snowboard Carrier, part # INA940 will fit these square bars. Keep in mind you'll want to have your friend verify the 2016 Subaru Impreza's roof weight capacity with his owner's manual or manufacturer prior to moving onto other accessories for heavier objects so he doesn't overload their roof and damage it. I've included a video review of the Grab Max and an...

  • Comparing Malone and Yakima 12-Cubic-Foot Rooftop Cargo Boxes
  • There is indeed a noteworthy price difference between the 12-cubic-foot Malone # MPG901 and Yakima # Y07191 rooftop cargo boxes. Both share many common features like the same compatibility with different types of roof rack bars and included locks. The primary differences consist of weight, 24-lbs for the Malone and 30-lbs for the Yakima, and that the Yakima offers dual-side access while the Malone does not. Both are covered by a manufacturer's limited lifetime warranty. When I put...

  • How to Install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons on a Malone MicroSport Trailer
  • I have two options that will allow you to install the CE Smith Post-Style Guide-Ons for Boat Trailers part # CE27620 on your Malone MicroSport Trailer part # MPG460G. The first option would be to install the guide posts in front of the wheels just before the a-frame of the trailer comes together. You can see this location in the attached photo. The other option I have for you would be to relocate the taillights. Once the taillights are removed (2 bolts), you can then install the guide...

  • Hitch Mounted 2-Bike Platform Bike Rack that Can Tilt with Bikes Loaded
  • I can comment on the issues this customer took with the Malone Pilot bike rack # MPG2112. First, for any bike rack like this with the same design you are supposed to fold the arms down, then load a bike, and while holding the bike steady you raise the arm and push the hook down onto the front tire as close to the fork as it will go. The way this person describes how they wish it worked isn't how it is supposed to be used. They also complained that the arms are not long enough but that...

  • 4 BIke Platform Rack that Clears the Spare Tire on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler
  • If you haven't picked up a hitch for your vehicle yet, I recommend the DrawTite Class III hitch, part # 76104 as this has the widest range of compatibility with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited bumpers. This will require that you either have the Mopar offroad bumper or all modifications and excess welding removed to install this receiver. I've included a video of our install team showing this on a 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. For standard tires on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, bike racks...

  • Malone AirFlow Roof Rack for a 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with Factory Side Rails
  • I did a little research and found that the correct AirFlow roof rack for your 2016 Volkswagen Golf SportWagen with the factory side rails is # MPG215. There isn't a 211 that will fit your Golf but there is # MPG201. The difference between it and the 215 is that the 201 has rectangular bars and 215 has aero bars which are quieter and have less drag. I have included links to videos covering the features of these 2 styles of roof rack. If you can tell me what you want to carry on the roof...

  • How does Roof Rack Bar Sizing Work?
  • Roof Rack sizing is a little different than what you'd expect it to be. Each rack's length is measured by the length of the bar from end to end, letting you pick the amount of distance the bar goes past the bars on the top of your Jeep. The other measurement, called "Cross Bar Spread" is the recommended distance from the center of one bar to the other bar. This helps you pick the size of the roof rack or cargo bag that you can put on top of the vehicle, as well as if a surfboard...

  • Using a Five Bike Rack with a 2018 Honda Odyssey
  • The Malone Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver, part # MPG544 will work as a rise for your hitch. However, you'll reduce the tongue weight capacity of the hitch by 50%, dropping your total capacity from 525 pounds with the Draw-Tite Max Frame Class III, part # 76170 down to 262 pounds. This may also increase the amount of ground contact you experience, as there is some length added to the rear of the vehicle with this extension. You'll want to be conscious of the weight of the individual...

  • Availability of Roof Rack Crossbars To Carry Kayaks on 2006 Pontiac Vibe With Factory Side Rails
  • The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack, part # MPG201, is a correct fit for your 2006 Pontiac Vibe with the factory installed raised side rails. To carry two 45-lb kayaks on the roof of your Pontiac Vibe you will want to first check the weight capacity of the roof on your vehicle. If it is lower than the 165 lb weight capacity of the Malone rack then you will need to go by the lower weight capacity as your guideline. I have done some research and cannot verify the weight capacity of the roof...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for 2005 Honda CR-V
  • Best option for a budget friendly bike rack for your 2005 Honda CR-V would be the Hollywood Racks SR1 part # HRSR1. This is confirmed as a fit for the spare on your vehicle and would be a great way to carry up to 2 bikes. If you plan on carrying any womens or alternative framed bikes without horizontal top tubes you may also be interested in purchasing a Kuat Bike Frame Adapter Bar # UB01 to provide a horizontal top tube on your bikes to provide an attachment point. I attached a review...

  • Does Malone Roof Rack MPG202 Fit 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan with Raised Rails
  • For your 2013 Volkswagen Tiguan the Malone roof rack part number # MPG202 is a confirmed fit that would work well. Malone has test fit it on your vehicle and found that it fit and was perfectly safe. It has a weight capacity of 165 lbs. It does not need to fit into the pin holes of your rails and instead clamps tightly to the bars. When it is tightened to the rails of your roof it would not push back on them from the wind. The rack has a limited lifetime warranty that would protect it...

  • Working the Pulley Catch on the Malone Canoe and Kayak Hammock
  • I went out to our demo warehouse and put together the Malone Canoe Hammock's (part # MPG346) catch pulley together with both ropes to experiment a bit with how the pulley catch worked. What I found out is that the catch is very solid and exactly what you're looking for in this sort of product. It's a little tricky to get the catch to release. The best motion to release the catch is a smooth downward pull on both ropes to raise the weight a little before the catch will release and let...

  • Recommended Dual Hitch Adapter For 2017 Kia Sorento for Bike Rack and Pop-up Trailer
  • Your 2017 Kia Sorento has a towing capacity of 2,000 to 5,000 lbs depending on what motor and transmission you have. I recommend checking your owner's manual to make sure you are within the manufacturer's specifications. For a trailer hitch, I recommend the Draw-Tite Max-Frame Trailer Hitch Receiver - Custom Fit - Class III - 2" # 75908. This will give you a 2 inch opening that will allow you to use the Malone 2" Dual Purpose Hitch Receiver # MPG544. This will allow you to tow your...

  • Recommended Dual Purpose Ball Mount with 8 Inch Extension
  • The Malone # MPG544 does not come in an 8 inch extension, however I do have exactly what you are looking for from another manufacturer. I recommend the Curt Dual 2" Receiver Tube Adapter, 8" Extension # D-192. Using an adapter like this will allow you a second receiver, but you will want to follow the capacity reductions associated with use of an adapter like this. A hitch extender like this will reduce your trailer hitch's overall tongue weight capacity by 50%. If you want the anti-rattle,...

  • How To Haul Two 10' Kayaks In The Bed Of A Truck
  • In order to haul two kayaks in your 2016 Toyota Tacoma without placing them on the roof of your vehicle, you will need to use a load extender such as the Malone Axis Truck Bed and Roof Load Extender part # MPG907 if the bed of your truck is empty. The extender can be positioned for both vertical and horizontal load extensions. In your case, you will want to place the kayaks flat in the bed. This will not interfere with your tri-fold tonneau cover and will safely allow you to haul the...

  • Will the Malone Roof Rack Fit on a 2013 Subaru CrossTrek
  • The Malone Roof Rack, # MPG201, will Fit on your 2013 Subaru CrossTrek as long as it has the factory raised side rails that run front to back (see photo). If your CrossTrek has a bare roof without any rails (see photo), then you will want the Thule Podium Roof Rack. The Podium roof rack consists of the 50 inch crossbars, # THLB50, the Podium foot pack, # TH460 and the Podium Fit Kit, # THKIT3068. This roof rack will install on fixed points on your roof.

  • Boat Loader Kayak Accessories for Rhino Rack Aero Roof Rack on a 2017 Nissan Sentra
  • I have a solution for you, however the Yakima BoatLoader Slide, part # Y04018 only works with round Yakima crossbars, and the Thule Outrigger II, part # TH847 , only works with Thule Square crossbars. The design of aero crossbars isn't made to accept slide-in attachments like these. The kit I recommend instead is the Malone K-Loader, part # MPG353. This clever device attaches a load guide saddle to the rear window of your vehicle and lets you rest it on the saddle, assisting in loading...

  • Will the Malone Spare Tire Bike Rack Fit on a 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The Malone RunWay 3 Bike Rack, # MPG2148, will work well on your 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The Malone rack will adjust to a variety of different width tires. The rack is light weighing just 13 lbs and can carry 3 bikes with each bike weighing up to 33 lbs each. You might want to consult your owner's manual or consult the dealer to make sure that the rear door of your Wrangler will be able to handle the bike rack and bike weight when opened. If you will be carrying a woman's,...

  • Malone AirFlow Roof Rack for a 2017 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Side Rails
  • The Malone AirFlow roof rack # MPG215 does indeed fit the 2017 Toyota RAV4 with factory side rails. The 2-7/16 inch measurement you have is actually 1/16 inch less than 2-1/2 inches that the roof rack fits.

  • Using the Malone K-Rack Load Assister with a Maverick 100x Kayak on a 2006 Ford Explorer
  • The Malone K-Rack, part # MPG353 will work for your particular goals. The K-Rack attaches via vacuum mounts on the bottom side, letting it connect to a variety of smooth surfaces quickly and easily. It does require that you load the kayak keel-down, meaning that you will always have to load it right side up.

  • Solution for Wind Noise with the Malone Roof Rack part # MPG201
  • Roof racks can add some wind noise. Luckily there is a solution for that. If you install a wind fairing you'll direct the air over the bars and the noise will go away. For a fairing to use with the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 the part # Y05017 would be what you need. You can also try moving the bars further back on your rack to see if that helps too.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2015 Dodge Dart for Kayak Carrier
  • The Malone HandiRack Inflatable Roof Rack # MPG452 that you referenced doesn't have a speed rating. Basically you would have to use your best judgment but most importantly stay under the speed limit. A roof rack like the part # DS126B and # DK402 which is a confirmed fit for your 2015 Dodge Dart would be a better option since it's a custom fit rack that by it's design would give you a more secure rack setup. This rack does not have a speed limit either beyond the speed limit of the road...

  • What is a Waterproof Storage Solution for a Roof Cargo Basket?
  • It is absolutely fine to leave a roof cargo basket on when it is not in use. This adds a rugged style to the vehicle and means that you will not need to find space inside your home or garage to store the rack between trips. A recommended setup for a cargo basket on a 2016 Jeep Renegade is the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack, part # MPG216 combined with the Curt Roof Mounted Basket, part # C18115. This provides additional cargo space and is expandable with the Cargo Basket Extender, part #...

  • Installation Of Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System Upside Down
  • The Malone Anti-Rattle HitchLock System # MPG908 holds the ball mount up against one side of the receiver opening. The location as the top or bottom does not effect function. The Hitchlock will be able to handle the weight in any of these locations as the ball mount and receiver are really doing the lifting and this adapter is securing the position to avoid rattle. You can see in the attached installation details that they have installed it in both ways and state "Note: The Anti-Wobble...
