Malone Autoracks


Fold-down kayak carrier
Malone Autoracks - Downloader
Item: 165762-000108
Price: $169.95
Availability: In Stock



The DownLoader is Malone's premium J-style fold-down kayak carrier with features for low clearance, ease of loading and universal fit for most load bars. These carriers include aluminum corrosion proof frames, molded strap bales and replaceable padding for the base and frame. For increased satisfaction, the MPG351-XL Telos Kayak Load Assist can be integrated with this system (sold separately). 

Note: The base of the carrier has a rectangular "cutout" that has been included for square cross bar fit. This "cutout" does not affect the fit or function of the carriers when installed to round or oval shaped cross bars. 

Note: All Malone carriers come with two lengths of installation hardware (hex bolts). Cross bars can vary in thickness and having two lengths to choose from allows the consumer to select the best fit for their application. We recommend that the unused set of hardware be retained for future use with a different vehicle or cross bars.
