Review of the Malone Roof Box on a 2016 Acura MDX

Speaker 1: Today on our 2016 Acura MDX we're gonna be doing a test fit of our Malone Cargo 12 Rooftop Cargo Box. That's part number NPG901. As you can see, this is a very simple but effective cargo box, it's gonna hold up to 12 cubic feet of cargo. So it's gonna be great for taking any cargo that we don't want to store in our Acura. It features a locking mechanism to make sure that our cargo is secure while we're out and about. To open the cargo box we're gonna simply turn it to the unlock position and lift up on our lid.

Inside we're gonna have four clamps that are gonna secure our cargo box to our crossbars here. These claps come in three parts, one part is gonna fit under our crossbar, second part is gonna fit on top and then the third part is going to hold them together. We're gonna screw down into place. So we're gonna insert this up from the bottom, through the pre-drilled hole in our cargo box, you're gonna insert the second piece and then tighten down our third piece.Now these are going to fit the arrow style crossbars like we have shown here, they're also gonna fit round, square, elliptical and most factory style crossbars. Once we have that tightened down as far as we can by hand, we're gonna use this included tool, it's gonna give us more torque and tighten it down the rest of the way.

Once we have that tightened down, we are ready to load our equipment and close the lid. Now while this cargo rack, or sorry, cargo box does not allow us to open it from the other side like some others do, it does give us enough room to store a bike rack or other equipment on the other side of our roof if we so choose. And it's also going to give us plenty of room to open our back hatch to get any cargo out that we have stored back here, so that's gonna do it for our test fit for our Malone Cargo 12 Rooftop Cargo Box on our 2016 Acura MDX.
