Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding - 2 Kayaks - MPG115MD

Average Customer Rating:  4.9 out of 5 stars   (15 Customer Reviews)

Post-style carrier lets you transport 2 kayaks on their sides on your vehicle's roof rack. Arms fold down when not in use. Foam blocks attach to crossbars to protect kayaks and bars from scratches. Clamp-on installation. Tie-downs included.


We needed a carrier solution that folded down easily because of our garage door height. The Malone Pro2 Kayak Carrier has performed flawlessly over the past year. The kayaks remain stable and never shift even at freeway speeds. The foam blocks fit our crossbar well and offered a rattle free ride, which is nice. The one drawback to this system is how difficult it can be to actually route the straps. Without a ladder, it can be nearly impossible to get the strap over the kayak and hooked into the carrier properly. After you find a system that works for you, it becomes easier but I still think that the stationary carriers are more user friendly in that regard.


Ordered and received three products; a Yakima DoubleDown 4 bike rack, a Yakima hitchlock, and a Malone Stax Pro kayak carrier. The website contained a ton of information which allowed me to make an informed decision re which type/model and manufacturer of each item to choose. Ordering was simple and I received the items on the estimated date of delivery. I detected a manufacturing flaw in one of he items, however when I contacted the manufacturer the customer rep immediately shipped me the necessary parts and tools to repair the item. The installation of the rack and carrier was simple, especially having observed the videos on the etrailer website. Thus far we have transported two adult bicycles on the Yakima DoubleDown and the ride was very smooth as if there was no rack or bikes. We have also transported one kayak using the Malone carrier system and like the bike rack, the ride was very smooth and quiet as if there was no 10' kayak on the roof. The bike rack is on our 2015 Subaru Forester and the kayak carrier on our 2010 Chrysler Town and Country. Overall a very good experience and I would highly recommend etrailer and the Yakima DoubleDown and the Malone Staxx kayak carrier system (as well as purchasing the HitchLock to prevent the theft of the rack and bikes!).


Fit well onto my crossbars. Included everything you need to be able to use it right out of the box. I prefer the versatility of the post style over the cradles. Seems like solid construction that I anticipate lasting.


This is a one-year anniversary of purchasing the hitch for my Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV. I've kind of had time to forget how painful it was to crawl around under my car for a couple of hours, struggling to tighten the last bolt. But now it all feels worth it. I got a solid hitch that looks great and works great for way less than I would have if I had the dealer install it. Worth some discomfort lying on the ground cursing tight spaces on the underside of my car.


I have had these for 1 year now and have used them several times. They have worked exactly as advertised. Keeps my kayaks secure and once you have the process of mounting down it is pretty easy. Nice product.


Very helpful with no issues switching mounting plates


Ship to canada quebec in delay as they give


Very helpful and package arrived on time


Great product, well made and not too expensive. Actually using 2 pairs, side by side to carry 4 kayaks.

  • Best Way to Carry Two Kayaks on the Roof of a 2016 Ford Escape
    I do have an option for you but it is very unlikely that you would be able to use two of the Malone SeaWing Kayak Carriers part # MPG107MD side by side on the roof of your 2016 Ford Escape. Instead, I recommend using an upright carrier like the Malone Stax Pro Kayak Carrier part # MPG115MD. This carrier or a similar design will give you the best chance of fitting two kayaks on the roof of your Escape in addition to being much more cost effective. They will however be a little more difficult...

  • Recommeneded Foam Padding to Use for Kayaks on the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit for Utility Trailers
    If you want to use foam blocks to secure your kayaks to the Malone TopTier Load Bar Kit # MPG493 then I recommend using the Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD which comes with foam blocks plus an upright for a quick and easy way to strap your kayaks down. You should be able to cut down the uprights to a different size if you like but you need to make sure they are all the exact same height. Malone doesn't have a set install/removal time but it shouldn't take too long if you leave...

  • Will Malone Foam Block Fit 2018 Subaru Impreza Sport with Factory Crossbars
    Yes, the Malone Foam Block # MPG168 that you referenced will fit the aero-style factory crossbars on your 2018 Subaru Impreza. This particular block is designed to be a replacement for one of the blocks included with the Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD.

  • Will the Malone Stax Pro2 Fit on Square Crossbars
    Yes. The Malone Stax Pro2 # MPG115MD is designed to fit on a variety of crossbar shapes, including the square bars of the Malone SteelTop Roof Rack - Square Crossbars - Steel - 50" Long # MPG201. I've linked some review videos of these parts for you to check out, as well.

  • Can I Carry 2 Kayaks Without a Carrier on Malone AirFlow2 Crossbars
    I can't say that it's not possible, because with enough tie down straps, I've seen plenty of people do worse. However, it's not something I would advise you to do because you're not going to be able to properly stabilize the boats on their sides without a carrier. The very least thing I would recommend using with the Malone AirFlow 2 # MPG216 is a setup like the Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding - 2 Kayaks # MPG115MD. The Stax Pro2 gives you a post style...

  • How To Carry Kayaks On the Malone MegaSport Outfitter 3 Tier Trailer
    The Malone MegaSport Outfitter 3 Tier Trailer part # MPG550-O that you were looking at is going to be an excellent option to transport kayaks. That said, it doesn't actually come with any kayak carriers pre-installed but we have have plenty for you to choose from. The Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier part # MPG115MD for example is an excellent option for this that attach to the pre-installed crossbars. If you are referencing the uprights on the Malone MegaSport Outfitter 3 Tier Trailer, these are...

  • Differences Between Rhino Rack Kayak Carrier # RRS520 and Malone Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD
    The Rhino Rack Kayak Carrier part # RRS520 and the Malone Stax kayak carrier part # MPG115MD are both very similar but the big reason the Malone is listed for only 2 kayaks is because it comes with two foam blocks for kayaks to rest on and then the Rhino Rack does not come with the blocks so it's possible to add additional kayaks without carrying them in a different way. Either will work great on a Malone roof rack as well.

  • Will SportRack Crossbars And Kayak Carrier Be Compatible With Pop-Up Trailer
    The SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack - Square Crossbars - Steel # SR1020 has telescoping bars that are adjustable between 80, 83 or 86 inches long. It has 4 roof-rack feet that prmanently bolt to the roof of your pop-up camper and all parts needed for installation are included. They will fit pop-up campers with a maximum width of 85-1/2 inches. The rack will add 3 inches of height to your roof. You can adjust the distance between the crossbars prior to assembly and I recommend centering...

  • Recommended Economical Roof Rack System For 2 Kids Kayaks And A Paddle Board On 2014 Subaru Outback
    On your 2014 Subaru Outback, I recommend the Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding - 2 Kayaks # MPG115MD for the most economical option to securely transport your 2 kids kayaks. For your paddle board, I recommend the Rhino-Rack Pad # RRRWP05. This combination will give you everything you need to transport your watersports equipment to the water. The tie-downs are included with each kit.

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Kayak Carrier For Carrying 2 Kayaks On 2021 Jeep Wrangler Hard Top
    Yes, the Rhino-Rack SG Roof Rack # RRSG59 is a great roof rack for transporting kayaks on the roof of your 2021 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Hard Top. This roof rack only has a weight capacity of 88lbs so I recommend installing a lightweight kayak carrier setup such as Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs 2 Kayaks # MPG115MD. This kit only weighs 8lbs total, leaving you with 80lbs that can be added to the roof rack which should be enough for 2 standard kayaks. The maximum boat width allows...

  • Kayak Carrier Options that Can Fit TracRac Truck Bed Ladder Rack
    The load bars of the TracRac ladder racks are much thicker than standard roof rack crossbars which allows them to have the higher weight capacity but also is what prevents roof rack accessories that need to wrap around the bar from fitting. But the kayak carrier solutions that fit into the top channel of crossbars like the Rhino Rack Nautic 580 # RR580 will work so this would be your best solution. We do have one foam block solution that can fit around the TracRac load bars with the part...

  • Recommended Post-Style Kayak Carrier For Adarac Ladder Rack Top Channels
    We can get you set up to carry four kayaks with a post-style kayak carrier and your Adarac ladder rack utilizing the top channels. You were definitely on the right track, and the Adarac's bars have standard channel dimensions so the Malone T-slot mounting kit will work, but it isn't compatible with the carrier you mentioned. To carry four kayaks, you will actually need two of a different Malone post-style carrier, as there isn't a 4-kayak carrier that will work. So, exactly what you need...

  • How to Carry Two Kayaks on a 2014 Kia Sorento LX
    The Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, # 59784, is the recommended roof rack for your 2014 Kia Sorento LX with the flush mount factory side rails. The crossbars that come with this kit are 47-1/4 inches long, which should accommodate 2 kayaks easily with the right carriers. The kayaks may not fit if you just lay them down side by side on the crossbars, so I recommend using a 2-kayak carrier like the Malone 2 Kayak Carrier, # MPG115MD. This carrier will hold the kayaks on their side and it is...

  • What Kayak Carrier Works with 2-Inch Round Pipes?
    The recommendation for a great kayak carrier partly depends on your vehicle. With that being said, the safest way to go with guaranteeing a fit of kayak mounts on 2-inch lumber rack pipes is the Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs - Post Style - Folding - 2 Kayaks # MPG115MD. This will work best as far as the compatability with your lumber rack pipes because the Stax Pro2 foam blocks simply attach and clamp onto the bars. In order to clamp around the bars, I confirmed with Malone...

  • Roof Rack and 2-Kayak Carrier for a 2011 Toyota Yaris Sedan
    SportRack semi-custom roof rack # SR1002 is listed as a fit for your 2011 Toyota Yaris sedan. For an inexpensive kayak carrier that can support 2 kayaks you can use # MPG115MD. You would just need to add two additional ropes, # SR0704, to secure the second kayak. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Toyota for the roof weight carrying capacity of the vehicle prior to loading.

    The SportRack semi-custom roof rack # SR1002 will fit a 2008 Toyota Prius 5-door model (4-door and rear hatch which in 2008 I believe they all were). To carry 2 kayaks on their sides and tie them off to one carrier I recommend carrier # MPG115MD. If you want each kayak to have its own carrier I recommend using 2 J-style carriers # SR5511. There isn't really enough space on the roof to carry the kayaks hull down and side by side. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Toyota...

  • Recommended Carrier for Transporting 4 Kayaks on 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    The Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier # MPG115MD lists a 2 kayak capacity as determined by the manufacturer. You could technically add another kayak on each side of the posts by using some additional Foam Blocks # MPG168 but this hasn't been tested so I don't recommend doing this. As you mentioned this particular carrier features a 50 pound capacity per boat anyway so it would not work for your application. Your best option is going to be with the Thule Stacker # TH830, which features the...

    We do have foam blocks like the Malone # MPG152 which will fit over your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbar # RRVA137S but the only time that we really recommend using only foam blocks for your kayak is if you are just driving across town. If you plan on doing any length of traveling that is more than across town you really need to use a kayak carrier like the Rhino-Rack # RRS520. If you would like to utilize the foam blocks with a post-style carrier then I recommend using the Malone Stax...

  • Best Honda Odyssey 2012 Roof Rack Option For Carrying Cargo & Kayaks
    If you don't have raised side rails on your 2012 Honda Odyssey, then get these # e99033. They look almost identical to the OEM rails. If you have them already or not, both our rails and the OEM rails will work with a roof rack system like the Malone AirFlow 2 # MPG216. This would pair good with a cargo basket for storage # C18115-117 or a kayak carrier # MPG115MD. I've included videos for you to watch to get an idea of what you're getting!

  • How To Carry 2 Kayaks On 2018 Silverado 2500 While Pulling 5th Wheel Trailer
    You will first need a roof rack on your 2018 Silverado 2500 single cab (work truck). I recommend the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Round Bars - 48" # 298-SX6000B. Then you will need a kayak carrier such as Malone Stax Pro2 Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # MPG115MD which can accommodate 2 kayaks. This may work for you without anything else, but since you won't be able to extend the kayaks over the bed, the kayaks may overhang over the front of the truck too much. To solve this, I recommend...
