Malone Hanger Trunk Mount 3 Bike Rack Review

Speaker 1: Today we're gonna be taking a look at the Malone Trunk Mount Hanger 3 Bike Rack, part number MPG2139.The Malone Hanger 3 Trunk Mount Bike Rack is a fast and easy solution to carry your bikes from one place to another. It can carry a wide variety of bikes ranging from your mountain bikes to your alternate frame bikes to your kids bikes and to road bikes as well.In some cases, when loading your bikes, especially those with alternate frames or kids bikes, you may need to use an adapter bar to have it fit properly on the bike rack. Malone does carry these, and you can find them on etrailer.com's website.It holds your bike in three locations. We're gonna have two straps up at the top tube. Our third point's gonna be the strap around the side here, and that's gonna be referred to as our anti-sway cage, which is gonna keep your bike from moving too far back and forth and causing bike to bike contact.The cradles are padded and have these grooves in them so that the cables on your bike will fit inside those instead of getting crushed up against your frame once it's been initially installed. The cradles are stationary, meaning they can't move back and forth or anything like that, but they are movable to accommodate different mounting styles.

Let's take a closer look and show off some features here. Starting at the ends of the arms here, on the one end, we will have the bottle opener which is pretty standard for most Yakama bike racks. On the other end here, we'll have an integrated cable lock which you pull out, wrap around the front most bike, and then attach it to this point here, and lock it into place. Therefore, both of your bikes are gonna be secured to the rack once they're installed.The cradles are stationary but they do have this super cush material, the frame of your bike is gonna be resting on so to ensure that there's not gonna be any scratch to your frame once it's being installed.

Let's go ahead and show off some of the features here.Starting at the ends of the arms, we're going to have the patented Yakima bottle openers on either end. The cradles themselves are stationary, but they do have this SuperCush material to help protect your bike's frame once it's being installed, and make sure that it doesn't get any scratches on it once you're installing it and transporting it.These do also have anti-sway cradles back here, which you can push up out of the way while loading and unloading, which is going to make it 10 times easier as opposed to having to shuffle the bike back and forth to get it into place. It does grip your bike by three points. We'll have two ZipStrips up at the top of the frame, and then one off to the side, which again is that anti-sway cradle to help keep the bike from moving too far back and forth and causing bike-to-bike contact.Let's go ahead and take the bike off.

Trunk Bike Racks Questions and Answers

  • Which 2 Bike Rack Will Work On A Ford Escape Without A Trailer Hitch
  • Since you do not have a hitch on your Ford Escape you can use a trunk bike rack. Thule and Yakima will both have two choices each that will carry two bikes and fit a Ford Escape. The Thule Passage 2 Bike Carrier, # TH910XT, will fit on a Ford Escape. It has a weight capacity of 70 lbs. and attaches to the vehicle by six straps for added stability..

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback
  • Typically we do not recommend using trunk mounted bike racks on vehicles that have spoilers. Most plastic and fiberglass spoilers cannot handle the weight of a bike rack and bikes and will bend or even break sooner or later. If the spoiler on your 2013 Mazda 3 hatchback is metal and part of the rear hatch, rather than a separate plastic or fiberglass spoiler, then you can use a trunk mounted bike rack without having to worry about the weight of the rack damaging the spoiler. You can...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation and Comparison of Yakima FullBack and HalfBack 2-Bike Trunk Racks
  • Honestly, the best way to prevent scratches to your vehicle's paint is going to get a hitch mounted rack. The difference between the Yakima HalfBack # Y02636 and the FullBack # Y02634 is that the FullBack comes with integrated locks that lock the bikes to rack and rack to vehicle. We typically recommend a fresh wash and wax before installing any trunk rack. It is important that the rack be installed securely to reduce bouncing or movement, which causes scratches. But honestly it...

  • Recommended Bike Carrier For 2015 Honda CR-V
  • There are a couple different style bike racks that may work for you. You stated you want a bike rack that goes behind your CR-V and not on the roof. We offer trunk mount bike racks and the other style bike rack we offer would be a hitch-mounted bike rack. The trunk mount bike rack I recommend is the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier, part # SA805. This is an easy bike rack to put on and take off the rear of your CR-V. It uses 6 straps to secure it to the back of the vehicle and has an...

  • How to Prevent Theft of a Trunk Mounted Bike Rack
  • The only anti-theft device we have for using a trunk mounted bike rack like the Thule Passage part # TH910XT is the Thule Passive Security Strap # TH533. You will basically loop the nylon covered steel strap around the frame of the rack to form a slip knot and then would close the puck of the strap in the trunk so that the only way to fully separate the rack from the vehicle would be to open the trunk. Another option is the Thule Raceway trunk rack part # TH9001PRO. All of the straps...

  • How to Carry a Womens Bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack
  • All you would need is an adapter bar to carry a women's bike with the Saris Bones 2 Bike Rack part # SA805BL. An adapter bar like the part # 64005 would attach to the seat post of your bike and at the steering stem to provide a horizontal attachment point for the bike rack. Check out the review video I attached for this product as well.

  • What Trunk-Mount Bike Carriers Will Clear Rear Spoiler on 2010 Lexus RX350
  • A rear spoiler often poses a challenge to the fit of a trunk-mount bike carrier. Several manufacturers offer carriers designed expressly for compatibility with this feature, but note that in most instances it is recommended that only a 2-bike carrier be used on such vehicles, including your Lexus RX350. Note also that a rear wiper cannot be used with a trunk-mount carrier installed. I have provided a link to our product page for trunk-mount 2-bike carriers that can be used on your RX350....

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes with a Toyota Prius V
  • What you have read is correct. The only hitches available for the Prius V are Class I. The bike rack and hitch manufacturers all agree that more than 2 bikes should be carried on a rack installed in a Class I receiver. Two factors contribute to this, the low 200 lb tongue weight capacity of the Class I receiver and the fact that any additional bikes after the second one would extend the load far enough rearward of the receiver opening that the extra leverage exerted could either damage...

  • Trunk-Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for an Audi Q5 Without A Trailer Hitch Receiver
  • Vehicles like your 2013 Audi Q5 that have a rear roof-level spoiler can pose a challenge to fitting a trunk-mount bike rack. However, you can use the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 2 Bike Carrier, part # HRF2. This unique 2-bike carrier is designed expressly to be compatible with roof-line spoilers by its use of upper arms that extend above and over the spoiler. Please refer to the linked photo and video that illustrate this carrier and its installation. If you need to transport more...

  • Recommended Bike Rack To Fit a 2012 Fiat 500C Convertible
  • For your 2012 Fiat 500c, which is the convertible model, I would recommend to use a hitch and a hitch bike rack. A trunk bike rack will not be able to be used on the convertible model. The hitch I would recommend would be the Draw-Tite Class I 1-1/4 Inch Hitch, part # 24873. This hitch will bolt-on to the rear of your vehicle. I am including a link to the installation instructions and a link to a video of the hitch being installed on a Fiat 500. You will be limited to hauling 2...

  • Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2015 Toyota RAV4 XLE
  • For a trunk mount bike rack that will hold 2 bikes and fit your 2015 Toyota RAV4 I recommend the all-new Yakima FullBack # Y02634. What's not to love about this rack? The arms can move up and down independently of each other to accommodate a wide range of bike styles. The ZipStrip straps are easier and faster to use than rubber straps, features an integrated cable lock, and it uses just 4 straps to secure to the vehicle. It is also a good looking bike rack. Installing a trailer hitch...

  • Recommended 3-Bike Trunk-Mount Rack for 2007 Honda Odyssey Van
  • For your 2007 Honda Odyssey the trunk-mount bike rack that I suggest is the Hollywood Racks Over-the-Top 3 Bike Rack # HRF2-3. This unique carrier features an innovative arched frame design that allows it to work well on vehicles with spoilers. Many otherwise excellent racks cannot be used on such vehicles but the HRF2-3 will avoid any interference with the rear spoiler. If any of the bikes does not have a horizontal top frame tube, such as some women's and alternative design bikes,...

  • What Rear Mounted Bike Rack Will Fit On 2005 Honda CRV With Outside Mounted Spare Tire
  • For your 2005 Honda CRV with the outside mounted spare tire, the Thule Spare Time Bike Rack # TH963PRO would be a great choice.The Spare Time has a total weight capacity of 75 lbs. for two bikes. The Yakima SpareRide 2 Bike Carrier, # Y02599, also might work if you take two measurements to be sure. First, the diameter of the center hole in your spare tire wheel needs to be larger than 1-3/16 inches. Second, the distance from the back of the wheel, where the mounting plate will bolt to...

  • Differences Between the Thule Archway, Gateway and Passage
  • The best of the three you mentioned is the Thule Archway XT part # TH9009XT. This rack has an integrated cable lock and upgraded frame cradles. Aside from that it is the exact same as the # TH9006XT. The big advantage the two mentioned racks have over the # TH910XT is the adjustable arms. This rack has a fixed position for the arms of the rack so the bikes might be carried at a sharp angle. The other two racks allow you to adjust the angle of the arms so that the bikes can be carried...

  • Thule Raceway Platform 9003PRO 2 Bike Rack Upgrades From the 9003
  • I spoke to my contact at Thule and she informed me that the differences between the Thule Raceway Platform Bike Rack part # TH9003 and TH9003PRO include upgraded support arms for the tray assembly. The cable ratchet assemblies now lock on both sides of the rack instead of just the one side. And finally the frame clamps have upgraded padding in them that uses their RDT padding (Road Dampening Technology).

  • Can you Open the Trunk when the Saris Bones 2 Bike Carrier is Installed on a Mazda CX-5
  • If you need truck access often, I have a solution for you, but bike rack manufacturers do not recommend opening the rear hatch or trunk with a bike rack installed. The door hinges are not designed to hold the extra weight and the rear door could come down on whoever is underneath. There is also a chance that the bike rack could fall off and scratch the paint. If you need to access the trunk often, I suggest a hitch mounted bike rack which can fold down, giving you access to open the...

  • Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback
  • There are many different styles of bike racks that you can use on your 2012 Chevrolet Sonic Hatchback, but due to the spoiler that comes on the rear hatch of your vehicle, I would recommend using a roof or hitch mounted bike rack over a trunk mounted bike rack. The rear spoiler on your vehicle was not designed to support any type of weight and it will be forced to support the weight of a bike rack and bikes when you use a trunk mounted bike rack. Instead, I would recommend looking into...

  • Using Trunk Mounted Bike Rack on 2007 Honda Odyssey
  • Thule does not recommend using any rear strap-mounted bike rack on the Odyssey, due to the fact that the rear hatch that the rack would attach to is not strong enough to bear the weight of the rack and the bikes. Hollywood Racks makes a trunk mounted rack that would work for you. Their Over-The-Top model is available in a 2 bike version as part # HRF2 or as a 3 bike version, part # HRF2-3. The rack is designed differently than the Raceway Pro 3 you're asking about. The Over-The-Top uses...

  • Recommended Carrier for Schwinn Meridian Adult Trike on Toyota Prius
  • All of the hitches for the Toyota Prius are Class I hitches with 1-1/4 inch receivers, so as long as you have a Class I trailer hitch you can use Hollywood Racks Sport Rider # HR1000R (for longer wheelbases) or # HR1000 and then add Trike Adapter, # HRTRK-ADP, to carry the trike. This set up is Class I compatible. I have linked instructions for you on the racks and adapter. You will need to stay within the 200 pound tongue weight rating of a class I hitch or the tongue weight rating...

  • Are Adapter Bars Required to Load Womens Bikes on the Thule Passage Trunk Mount Bike Carrier
  • If you will be carrying any bikes that do not have a top frame bar that goes straight across (like a typical men's bike would) then I recommend using bike adapter bar # 64005 as a lower cost alternative. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level and will provide better ground clearance. I have to use these adapters and without them my wife's bike would be at a severe angle and I would not be able to load my son's bike at all. I have linked a video showing how the adapter works.
