Expert Answers about Malone

  • 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 #...

  • 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 the Best Rack to Transport 4 Womens Bikes on a 2015 Volkswagen Touareg?
  • The Malone Pilot 4 Bike Rack, part # MPG-2112-2115, is an extremely versatile platform mount that will work well with the women's bikes. The adjustable frame lock has 90 degrees of range, being able to adapt to a number of frame types and positions. Frame locks on most platforms actually attach to the front wheel or front of the frame, avoiding the need for an adapter bar. I recommend putting the frame lock against the downshaft of the bike to avoid damaging the frame. I also recommend...

  • Malone Roof Rack and Rhino-Rack Cargo Basket Fits on 2014 Jeep Patriot
  • The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 is a confirmed fit on the 2014 Jeep Patriot that has raised roof side rails that run front-to-back. This rack's aero-style bars will be quieter than most other roof rack bar shapes. The Rhino Rack Roof Cargo Basket # RMCB is an excellent choice for use on this rack. This carrier will fit the aero bars perfectly. With rooftop cargo carriers we like to suggest certain accessory items that can make using these a lot easier. First, please consider...

  • Distance of Mounting Hardware to Edge of Malone Cargo Box
  • Unfortunately, we don't have any additional photos of the Malone Cargo Box # MPG902 that shows the mounting hardware as of yet but I can tell you the mounting points are adjustable. They're on tracks that can be spread apart from each other from 25 to 40 inches front to back.

  • Recommended Crossbars And Kayak Carrier For 4 Kayaks On 2009 Nissan Murano
  • For your 2009 Nissan Murano with factory roof rack, you can add the Malone AirFlow2 Universal Roof Rack for Raised Side Rails - Aero Crossbars - 50" Long # MPG215 to your system to give you aftermarket crossbars rated for up to 165 lbs. To carry up to 4 kayaks, I recommend the Thule The Stacker - Rooftop Multi-Kayak Carrier # TH830. This comes with straps for 2 kayaks, but you will want additional tie-downs for 4 kayaks. I recommend the Quick Loops for Thule Bow/Stern Tie-Downs -...

  • Kayak Carrier to Fit Rola GTX Roof Rack on 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • The Rola GTX roof rack part number # 59967 is a fit for your 2016 Jeep Grand Cherokee and would work well to carry a Malone Kayak carrier part # MPG116MD that you are also interested in. These two would fit and work well together.

  • Will Malone Roof Rack MPG201 Fit a 2016 Ford Escape with Panoramic Roof
  • Since the Malone roof rack # MPG201 attaches to factory side rails that run front to back on the roof of a 2016 Ford Escape and not to the actual roof it will work with the panoramic roof! I have linked a video review of this rack for you.

  • 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.

  • 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 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...

  • Does Malone Roof Rack MPG202 Fit 2016 Ford Escape with Raised Side Rails and Sunroof
  • For your 2016 Ford Escape with raised side rails the Malone roof rack part # MPG202 is a confirmed fit that would work well. Your sunroof would not be an issue at all but you'd want to have the rack removed before opening the roof as that will make for quite a bit of noise.

  • How to Reduce Rattle Coming From a Cushioned Ball Mount
  • The Malone Anti-Rattle Hitch Lock System, # MPG908, would work well with your Convert-A-Ball Ball Mount, # AMSC8. The Malone anti-rattle device will help stop the unwanted movement between the ball mount and your vehicle's receiver hitch. However, by using an anti-rattle device on this ball mount you will loose most of the cushioned function of the your ball mount.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Kayak Carrier for a 2017 Lexus RX 450h with Raised Side Rails
  • As of yet (July 2017) Yakima does not have a roof rack fit for your 2017 Lexus RX 450h, but I did call them and my contact said that they will be finished testing and have a fit in a month or two. Because of this I recommend going with the Malone AirFlow2 # MPG215 which is confirmed to fit your raised side rails. This roof rack option uses Aero style Crossbars which will help to reduce wind noise and drag. These will install quickly and come with built-in locks to secure the roof rack...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2007 Toyota RAV4 with Rear Mounted Spare Tire
  • While there are spare tire mount bike racks that will fit your 2007 Toyota RAV4 the Malone RunWay # MPG2148 will not due to the spare tire cover. You would have to take off the whole spare tire cover so all that is left is the spare tire and then you could mount this rack. What I recommend is a rack that mounts using the same location as the spare tire such as the SpareRide # Y02599. However, the available racks that do fit, like the SpareRide, hold 2 bikes maximum. To carry 3 bikes...

  • Is Malone XtraLight Trailer Easy to Assemble, Good on Highway, Easy to Move, Comparable to Yakima
  • Most of the assembly of the Malone roof rack on wheels # MPG525G is just turning wrenches which is to say simple and straight forward. The instructions are some of the best I have seen with easy to understand explanations and color pictures. I have included a link to them for you. I have no doubt that you would be able to assemble the trailer without any problems. Small trailers like this are fine on the highway when loaded. What can make a trailer, any trailer, bounce or sway is the...

  • Small Trailer Recommendation with Yakima Crossbars Installed
  • If you are wanting small trailer with Yakima crossbars we have just what you need. The Yakima Rack and Roll trailers like part # Y08106 are setup with Yakima crossbars on them already and would be your ideal solution. The Malone trailer part # MPG525G is a great trailer but it's not designed to have Yakima bars installed on it. If there ever was a trailer designed for a Toyota Prius to tow it these would be them as you really aren't going to find any lighter weight options.

  • 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.

  • How to Secure Girl's Bike without Cross Tube on Hanging Style Bike Rack
  • In order to transport a girl's bike (or any bike with alternative style frames) to a hanging rack like the Malone Hanger 4 Bike Rack # MPG2124, you will just need a bike frame adapter bar. I recommend the Kuat # UB01 because of how easy it installs. This will connect to your bike's seat post and handlebar stem post to provide a horizontal attachment point for the bike rack. This will ensure level transport and improved ground clearance. I have included an image that shows how this works...

  • Recommendation to Transport 5 Bikes with 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
  • The Malone Roof Rack # MPG216 referenced in your question is indeed confirmed to fit your 2008 Ford Explorer Sport Trac, however I cannot recommend securing 5 bikes onto the crossbars. The reason is that there will simply not be enough space to mount 5 bikes side by side on the roof of your vehicle. You will also want to check the capacity of your Ford's roof as listed in the owner's manual, as its possible the roof is not built to hold the weight of your bikes. The best option for transporting...

  • Kayak Load Assist for a 2006 Honda Element With Factory Crossbars
  • Though the Thule Hullavator # TH898 will not fit your 2006 Honda Element, there is still a load assist option that will make transporting your new kayak much easier. The Malone J-Loader Kayak Carrier # MPG118MD combined with the Telos Load Assist for Malone J-Style Kayak Carriers # MPG351 will give you a way to load and haul your kayak. To use the load assist you will raise your kayak vertically from waist high to the J-style carriers by raising the two cradles. Since your Element is...

  • Are Kayak Carriers Required to Carry Kayaks on the Malone XtraLight Trailer MPG525G
  • Not necessarily though you would still have to tie the kayaks down to the trailer. You could mount a kayak, possibly 2 depending on how wide they are, directly to the crossbars on the Malone trailer # MPG525G. But having the kayaks on a carrier will limit the contact between the bars and the kayaks, protecting them, and also will free up some space on the trailer should you need to carry other items. What I recommend is to use the Rhino-Rack carrier # S512 with the expansion arm # RRS512X....

  • 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...

  • Does Malone Pilot 2 Bike Platform Rack Fit on 2010 Chevy Impala with Spoiler

I attached a picture of it installed on a similar vehicle that has a factory spoiler for you to check out as well to show how it fits over it. 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...

  • 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...
