Video Transcript for Malone QuickLash T-Style Bow and Stern Tie-Down Hood Loops Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Malone Quick Latch T-style hood loops for bow and stern tie-downs, part number MPG308. So once you have your kayak in place and you have it strapped down to the roof rack system, you do need bow and stern tie-downs for each end.However, if you don't have any tie-down points underneath or you don't have a hitch in installed in the back, one of the options you can utilize is the quick latch hood loop. So pretty much what these do is create tie-down points for the hooks of your bow and stern tie-downs and they have an end cap on the inside which is closed inside your hatch of your hood or the hatch of your trunk while you tie these down.The end caps are made from a polypropylene and are injection molded to this T-shape for superior fit and durability. This has a load capacity of 150 pounds, come in a quantity of two, and has a one year warranty.When comparing this to other products, two that come up are going to be the Rhino-Rack anchor strap, part number RRRBAS and the Thule Quick Lubes, part number TH530.As far as the most economical choice, that's going to go to the Malone. As far as quantity is concerned, that's going to go to both the Malone and the Thule as it comes with two hood loops or two loops with the Rhino-Rack strap only coming with one.As far as durability is concerned, that's going to go to the Malone as it's made from a harder material.Now that we've gone over some of the features, let's go ahead and show you how they work. We have our two hood loops here on our table.

This is pretty much what you're goin got get with the kit once you buy it.First, to install these, at least for our front portion of our tie-down, we're going to have to pop the hood open. With our hood open we have to find a good spot for our quick lash to set into place. We found that this area here will work just as long as it's in a spot where it's not going to get crushed by the hood.So with that in place we can now close our hood and our front quick lash is installed. Now we'll do the same at the rear. Again, making sure we're to putting it directly on the hatch, set it inside and we'll close our hatch on it and now we have our tie-down here as well.With everything in place, now we can attach our bow and stern tie-downs with no problem.

And there you have it for the Malone quick lash T-style hood loops for bow and stern tie-downs, part number MPG308.

So far so good. Product is easy to set up and instructions are easy to understand. Mounted on a 2018 Subaru Crosstrek with OEM crossbars. It feels sturdy and durable. I like the folding feature easy to raise and lower.



- MPG308
by:

I had no good place to tie down the bow of my kayak when mounted on my Suburban. The Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops fit perfectly under my hood and showed no signs of weakness!



- MPG308
by:

The tie downs are fine. I like the inflatable roof rack for transporting my kayak, but take it off your car if it’s going to rain, because the rain flows down the straps and inside the car!



- MPG308
by:

Exactly what I needed to attach a bow tie down for my kayak. (My car's front tie-down loops were unfortunately removed, so I really needed something like this. Solid material, super secure.



- MPG308

Very useful for both SUV hood and back hatch.

Hi haven't had a chance to use them the roof rack I ordered from you arrived damaged & I'm waiting for a update the anchors look very durable & I can't wait to use them!

Excellent product. Easily installed



- MPG308
by:

Great, easy way to secure my kayak. I have nothing to easily tie off to in the front of my vehicle, so being able to just close the hood on this and tie off to it is a great convenience.



- MPG308
by:

e.trailer as always is a great place to get boating accessories, including kayaking and canoeing, and I go there first before REI or other websites. Website and transactions are excellent, and shipping is fast. The online email included a PDF and two UTube videos of how to use my hood tie downs. This show some real thought to after purchase help for customers.

by:

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.

Ask the Experts about this Malone Accessories and Parts



  • Can Two Kayaks Be Secured with One Set of Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops Part # MPG308
    Yes, you can secure two kayaks to the Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops part # MPG308. I have attached a photo to show how the Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops are used as well but the photo is only with one kayak. You may want to center the hook more if used with two kayaks. I called Malone to confirm this.

  • Size of Mounting Brackets on the Malone Downloader Kayak J-Rack
    The Malone Download, part # MPG114MD , will definitely fit the width of your bars, as they have a 3-1/2 inch opening, but to get the height, you'll need to use the included 70 mm bolts to make up the difference if they're thicker than 1 inch. The Download can handle up to 1-3/4 inch thick crossbars when using the larger included bolts. I recommend also purchasing a kit of Malone Quick Lash T loops, part # MPG308 to add easy to use mounting points to your hood and trunk for the bow and...

  • Does Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier Fit 2015 Subaru Outback With Factory Roof Rack
    The factory roof rack on your 2015 Subaru Outback will absolutely be able to mount a pair of the Malone kayak carriers you asked about: - Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG107MD These have universal mounting clamps to fit your Outback's crossbars, and your bars also have the correct spacing to use the SeaWing # MPG107MD; I verified this fit for you with the manufacturer. This carrier comes with the needed tie-downs, but if your Outback doesn't have easy attachment points...

  • How Do I Secure A Kayak To My Roof When There Are No Anchor Points On The Front Of My Vehicle?
    The Yakima SweetRoll Kayak Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # Y04074 can be attached to basically any sturdy hooking point on the front of your vehicle. I took a look at the front end of the 2021 Kia Telluride and I agree that there appears to be no good hooking point for the kayak tie-down straps to attach to. Luckily, there is a solution. You can simply use Malone QuickLash T-Style Hood Loops for Bow and Stern Tie-Downs - Qty 2 # MPG308. This comes with two T-style loops; one can be installed under...

  • Best Kayak Rack for a 14 Foot Tandem Kayak on a 2009 Mazda 6
    I reached out to Sport Rack to confirm if the Sport Rack Kayak Carrier, part # SR5513 can be used with tandem Kayaks and they confirmed that it is useable with tandem kayaks. I do recommend adding a set of Malone Quick-Lash loops, part # MPG308. These will extend a tie-down point from your hood or trunk and make securing the kayak overall easier.

  • Putting Two 10 Foot Kayaks on a 2013 Honda Odyssey
    For your 2013 Honda Odyssey, I recommend two of the Malone J-Loader, part # MPG118MD. This J-Style Rack will help you load the kayak up onto the vehicle with the integrated ramps, helping to support some of the weight. The J-loader also includes a complete boat, bow and stern tie down kit. You can add some quick upgrades to the kit with the Malone SpeedLash, part # MPG309 and Quick-Loop, part # MPG308. The Speed Lash kit uses a pulley system to make the bow/stern tie down process quicker...

  • Best Kayak Carrier For 90 lb Old Town Fishing Kayak
    The best option for your heavy Old Town fishing kayak is from Malone: - Malone MegaWing Fishing Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG207 The MegaWing # MPG207 has a 150 lb capacity, and is the best option because it is the only carrier that has the needed capacity to carry your Old Town that weighs just over 90 lbs. It will fit your 2012 Outback's factory crossbars, and is easy to mount to your crossbars with its clamping system. The carrier even comes with load straps and bow/stern tie-downs...

  • How to Determine if Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier is Compatible with 2019 Hobie Outback
    The Lockrack Adjustable Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX is design to carry a watercraft with the gunwales down. If you choose to load it on the hull or an additional carrier then that is your choice. I really don't think you'd be able to get another carrier to fit like you are thinking though. We don't have a fit guide for which watercraft fit with this carrier but I can give you some dimensions that you can use to determine if your 2019 Hobie Outback is compatible or not. This has...

  • Using Lockrack Watersport Carrier on 2019 Subaru Outback Limited with 2016 Hobie Mirage Outback
    The Lockrack Watersport Carrier # 339-LRUNISETX will work on your 2019 Subaru Outback. I checked with the manufacturer and they confirmed that it will work on the factory crossbars with your 2019 Subaru Outback. This is an awesome rack and it won't have any issues carrying your Hobie Mirage Outback, but since it's rather long, you may want to consider using something similar to # MPG309 and # MPG308 to secure both ends of the kayak for some added security when traveling long distances.

  • Malone AirFlow2 and Thule Hull-A-Port Kayak Carrier Compatibility on a 2010 Subaru Forester
    I went out to our warehouse and tested the Malone AirFlow2, part # MPG215 and the Thule Hull-A-Port J-Style Kayak Carrier, part # TH834 together to see if it fit. I have a picture attached of the resulting fit. They did go together well and did not have wiggle between the carrier and the base thanks to the Hull-A-Port's universal mounting feet. Purchasing the Malone QuickLash Hood Loops, part # MPG308 is a good way to increase the stability of your kayak carrier by improving how your...

  • Kayak Carrier for 2016 Honda CR-V with OEM Roof Rack Crossbars
    You are correct. For your factory crossbars on the CR-V you can use foam blocks like the Malone Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - Foam Block Style - 12" Long # MPG154 which will give you the components you need to secure the kayak as well. For a better hold, I recommend using a J-style carrier with your factory bars like the Swagman Contour Rooftop Kayak Carrier System with Tie-Downs - Fixed Arms - J-Style - Universal Mount # S65148. This is much better if you will be doing highway driving...

  • How To Secure a Wenonah Spirit II Canoe On a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I do have some options for you but the Load Stops for Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars part # RRRLH2 that you referenced are not going to be sufficient to secure your Wenonah Spirit II Canoe because they don't offer enough support/stability. This canoe is going to require a much more secure carrier for which I recommend using the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs part # MPG112MD which will fit your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars. The Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier has...

  • Carrying a Kayak on a 2007 Honda Civic Sedan
    For your 2007 Honda Civic, you'll want to keep it simple, as the height of the car means there's no reason to go with bigger, expensive load assist carriers. Since it sounds like you are just looking to carry a kayak, a simple, easy to remove roof rack is the best pick. Prior to using the roof rack, you'll want to verify your roof capacity with your owner's manual or manufacturer. This capacity will include the weight of the kayak, carrier and roof rack, and will be limited by the lowest...

    There is one option for a saddle style kayak carrier that is going to both fit your 2015 Subaru Outback and have the 90 lb capacity you need, which is from Malone: - Malone SaddleUp Pro Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG110MD I verified with Malone that the SaddleUp Pro # MPG110MD fits your '15 Outback, and has a 90 lb capacity, so it meets both those criteria. It will also work with the width of your kayak so you're all set in regards to those specifics. But more than just technically...

  • Availability of Foam Block Kayak Carrier Compatible with Square Profile Crossbars
    Although there are still a few square profile crossbars available, many are getting away from them slowly because the aero-style are much quieter. A block system like the Malone # MPG162 is compatible with both square and aero-profile bars. Once the kayaks are strapped down to the roof rack and at the bow and stern, it doesn't really matter what profile the blocks are compatible with, because the force of the straps holding the kayaks in place will prevent the blocks from moving. I found...

  • 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon Kayak Racks for Factory Roof Rack Systems
    For the 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon, I recommend the Malone DownLoader, part # MPG114MD. This is a flexible, J-Style rack that installs quickly onto your crossbars, and folds flat for when you don't have time to pull it off immediately. The carrier also includes small load-assist ramps on both J's of the carrier, helping support at least a little weight of the kayak as you get it onto the roof of your vehicle. Additionally, the DownLoader can support kayaks up to 36 inches wide, so you...

  • Recommended Kayak Carrier to Carry 2 Kayaks on a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche with Factory Roof Rack
    I recommend the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073 for your 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche. It's confirmed from Yakima to fit your factory roof rack and can hold both kayaks. The JayLow is versatile and can carry one kayak when in the J-style position or 2 kayaks in the vertical position. It can also fold down when not in use. All of the tie-downs are included for one kayak. You'll need to add a second set, part # Y04031, for the second kayak. I also recommend adding the Malone QuickLash Hood...

  • Will Rhino-Rack Nautic Kayak Carrier Fit on Square SportRack Crossbars
    Yes, the Rhino-Rack Nautic roof kayak carrier, part # RR570, does fit the SportRack square bar crossbars of part # SR1002 on your 2007 Honda Civic. The Nautic includes tie-down straps but I recommend adding the Malone QuickLash hood loops, part # MPG308. They fit into the trunk and hood of your Civic and make it easier to find connection points for the tie-downs. Take a look at the video I attached to see how they work.

  • Fitting a Yakima Jaylow to a Nissan XTerra with Factory Crossbars
    I contacted Yakima and the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073 is a confirmed fit for the 20112 Nissan XTerra's factory bars. I strongly recommend adding a Same Key System 2 Lock set, part # Y07202 to your JayLow to help improve the rack's security. Additionally, a set of Malone Quick-Lash loops, part # MPG308 can be extremely useful for quickly adding easy to access tie down points to your hood for the bow of your kayaks. They also work in the trunk's hatch, but are a little harder to tie to.

    You have a great range of options with the 2017 Toyota RAV4's factory roof rack. You'll want to ensure that the weight of the carrier plus the weight of the kayak. My research shows that your RAV4 is rated for 100 pounds on its roof, though you'll want to verify with your owner's manual the exacts of your configuration. For a carrier, I recommend the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073. This carrier includes small side ramps to assist with loading the kayak onto the vehicle, and also folds flat...

  • Does Thule Kayak Stacker Fit on Factory Crossbars of 2018 Subaru Outback
    Thule confirmed that the Kayak Stacker, part # TH830, does fit the factory crossbars on your 2018 Subaru Outback; however, if your kayak is over 10 feet long you want to use the JayLow, part # Y04073, instead. Both carriers include tie-down straps to connect the kayak to the carrier as well as 2 more for the bow and stern. I recommend adding the Malone QuickLash Loops, part # MPG308, to make the bow and stern connections easier.

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch for 2018 Honda Civic With Truck Bed Extender for Carrying Kayaks
    It is possible this will work but you won't be able to put much weight on the MaxxTow MaxxHaul Extender # HTAD. The only available hitches for the 2018 Honda Civic are Class I with a 1-1/4" receiver. Assuming you have a sedan without the center exhaust, the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver # 11604 is a good choice. You will also need the Curt Cam Buckle Stabilizing Strap for Hitch-Mounted Accessories # 18050. These are required for all non-trailer loads as shown in the installation instructions...

  • What Options do You Have for More Support for a Canoe Mounted on an Adarac Rack on a 2013 Silverado?
    I have a solution for you. Unfortunately, there is not an extension of the Adarac ladder rack # A70510 available. As far as having additional support of the bow of the canoe on your 2013 Silverado's cab, I recommend the Malone Foam Block for Canoes - 6" Long - Qty 1 # MPG160. The Foam Block will serve as a point to mount the bow down to the roof of your cab to make sure the kayak doesn't bump it during transport. In addition to the foam pad, you will need the Malone Hood Loops for Bow and...

    SeaSucker doesn't currently produce a dedicated kayak rack, however, if you have a kayak that is less than 45 pounds, you may be able to use the SeaSucker Surfboard Carrier, part # 298-BX1806 as a viable alternative. The Surfboard/SUP carrier does include the tiedowns for securing the kayak to the racks, but not a bow or stern kit. For that, I recommend using the Malone Quik-Lash, part # MPG308 attachment points and their Speed-Link system, part # MPG309. This will give you a quick...
