Yes! Gusts of wind, going at any speed can cause lifting forces that may damage your carriers and or cross bars – if this happens, this is not your cross bars “failing”. Using Bow and Stern lines will protect your systems.
Only at your own risk, we instruct to remove the roof rack to prevent damage to the product and or the vehicle.
Below are dimensions and diagrams of each Malone cross bar system that we offer. Using this information, you can inquire through the company who produces your carriers as to whether your carriers are compatible and or if they supply accessories that will allow attachment.

Water Sport Carriers:

All of our carriers will mount universally to all of Malone’s crossbars, factory, and aftermarket bars. A common misconception is that every bar is meant to be captured by the rectangular slot on the bottom of all of our carriers. This slot is meant for square bars, any other bar - up to 4 ¼’’ wide - is meant to be captured by the full base of the carrier (*if needed, we have longer bolts on our website to accessorize with, up to 90mm long). Regardless of the shape of the bar – our carriers will attach securely and transport safely. Being universal our bases will not fit exactly to every profile of bar, however when your boat is loaded and the front and rear tie-downs are applied, the system will level itself out. Again, allowing for safe and secure transport.

If your vehicle is equipped with factory installed cross bars, utilize our Fit Guide to determine if longer bolts are needed to attach any Malone kayak or canoe carrier to your cross bars - Click here to view fit guide

All the time! Malone provides Bow and Stern lines in all Canoe and Kayak carrier that are meant to be used every time a boat is transported.

No, unfortunately the rack is not height adjustable. To maintain structural integrity we recommend for the rack to be fully assembled as shown in our instructions. The height is 83" and the frame comes with six independent frame leveler feet allowing level placement on uneven surfaces. These levelers give the frame about 1" of leveling adjustability. Adding the FS Rack™ Caster Wheel Kit will add about 3" of height to the frame for a total of 86".
