This fit kit allows you to mount a Malone kayak or surfboard carrier to your truck bed ladder rack with top channels. Electroplated hardware resists corrosion.

You get far more than what is pictured. You get 4 short screws, 4 long screws, 4 nuts for small T-slots, 4 nuts for large T-slots, 8 washers and 1 allen key. Required a few more extra washers to make the short screws work with a Thule Probar Evo. The roof rack required the large nuts. Would buy again.



by:

Work well, on the older Downloader carriers. The new ones have a slightly different profile which cause the bolts to be about 1/8" to 3/16" too long when going to an Overhaul HD top bar. Solution is to get a few washers and insert, in my case 3 was the ticket. Otherwise the bolt bottoms out in the bottom of the slot prior to engaging T nut. On my older downloader, it's a perfect fit, maybe half a mm clearance below the bolt to the bottom of the slot when fully tight.

  • How to Install T-Slot Fit Kit in Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Crossbars
    The rubber strips in the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack are supposed to accommodate the T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287 by pressing them down. It may be a little tight but they were designed this way to help limit the amount of wind noise that is heard when the wind passes over the crossbars.

  • T-Slot Nuts to Fit Yakima HD Crossbars
    I recommend picking up the Aero Style Crossbar T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287 which comes with bolts, nuts, and washers that will fit in the Yakima HD Bar T-Slots like the 78" part # Y01159. If you're trying to find specific dimensions for your own hardware, the T-Slot measures 22mm wide and 8 mm tall and then the opening at the top measures 11mm wide (see attached photo).

  • T-Bolt Fitting Compatibility with Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack Crossbars
    Malone AirFlow roof racks like # MPG215 can use their own T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287 for Malone carriers or you can use another T-bolt fastener. I linked a photo showing a cross section of the AirFlow bar and the exact inside dimensions. I converted the millimeter dimensions to inches: 21.15mm = 0.83-inch 11.45mm = 0.45-inch 7.35mm = 0.28-inch This means the stainless steel T-bolts # 853-5648 will work fine. Most brands of T-bolt fittings and rack crossbars tend to be interchangeable...

  • Recommended Truck Bed Ladder Rack For 2018 Ram 2500 That Is Compatible With Inside-Rail Bed Cover
    As long as your Line-X bed cover mounts inside the bed rails, then you can use a ladder rack that mounts on top of the bed rails. The Adarac Aluminum Series Custom Truck Bed Ladder Rack # A76FR that your mentioned is confirmed to fit your 2018 Ram 2500 with 6-1/2' bed and mounts on top of the bed rails, so it is compatible with inside-the-rail bed covers. This ladder rack has crossbars measuring 66" long and the crossbars have an integrated top track for track-mounted accessories. I recommend...

  • J-Style Kayak Carrier Fit For Thule Truck Ladder Rack Crossbars
    So I believe what you are saying is you have a Thule ladder rack on your Tundra and want to add a J-style kayak carrier. We do have an option for you that will work, but you are right that the crossbars are too wide for the clamp-on hardware of a kayak carrier to fit, which means you'll just need to use the T-track (channels) on top of the ladder rack, which your Thule rack should have. What you can use is a kayak carrier and hardware from Malone: - Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with...

  • Will Malone T-Slot Mounting Kits Fit an ARB Awning Bracket
    Aero Crossbar T-Slot Mounting Kit # MPG915 is one of the kits that fit the Malone AirFlow 2 crossbars but it isn't the only one. There is also # MPG6604 which has longer bolts and a set of 4 of each part. There is also # MPG1498 with bolts that are in between the lengths of the other 2 kits. The bolts are not T-bolts. The way that it works is the square nuts slide into the T-Slot on a bar and the bolts will go down through the accessory being mounted and then thread into those square...

  • Will The Malone DownLoader Fit On Yakima HD Crossbars?
    The Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD-351XL will work with most crossbars you throw at it including the Yakima HD Crossbars # Y01158. If you wanted to install the DownLoader in the T-Slots on the crossbars you just need to get this T-Slot kit # MPG8287.

  • Will Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier Fit 2022 Subaru Outback With Subaru Thule Crossbars?
    The Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style # MPG114MD should fit your Subaru/Thule crossbars without an issue. But to verify, this carrier fits the Malone crossbars which measure 3-1/16" wide and 1" tall so if your crossbars are within these specs then it will fit for sure. If the crossbars on your Subaru happen to be larger then you can simply use T-Slot Adapter # MPG8287 to install the carrier into your crossbar's T-slot channel.

  • How to Get Malone Kayak Carriers w/ T-slot Fit Kit to Slide Into the Channels of a Roof Rack
    In order to use your Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier # MPG114MD with T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287 in the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG216 you will need to remove the rubber stripping (gasket) in the T-slot channel. You can remove, trim, and re-insert the strips around the mounting hardware of your accessories to keep the crossbar channel capped and quiet. I have included a picture that shows what the channels will look like with the strip removed and the carrier with fit kit installed.

  • J-Style Kayak Carrier Fitment with Thule Xsporter Pro Ladder Rack
    The etrailer J-Style Kayak Carrier # e98878 fit 3-1/8" wide x 1-1/2" tall crossbars while the crossbars for the Thule Xsporter Pro # TH500XTB are slightly larger at 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/2" tall so we need to look at a different kayak carrier for this application. For an alternative J-Style rack you can use one from Malone along with the T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287. The J-Pro2 # MPG117MD has fixed arms while the DownLoader # MPG114MD has the folding arms like our etrailer kayak carrier kit. Both...

  • Hardware for Mounting Accessories to Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack
    The T-Slots on the Yakima LockNLoad Platform Rack # Y05044-39 have the same dimensions as standard crossbars so you can basically use any brand of T-Bolts to accomplish your job. For example, you can use the Thule Square T-Bolt # 853208914 or the Malone T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287.

  • Can Cantilever Extension for Thule Ladder Racks be Used to Haul Longer Kayaks on 2018 F-250
    Yes, the Cantilever Extension for Thule Ladder Racks # TH24001XT will work great for hauling longer kayaks with your 2018 Ford F-250 Super Duty. This works great with the TracRac G2, TracONE, and T-Rac Pro2 ladder racks. If you let me know what bed length you have on your truck I can recommend one of these ladder racks if you don't already have one. If you don't already have kayak carriers I recommend checking out the Malone DownLoader # MPG114MD. This will fit into the T-Slots of the...

  • Mounting a Go Power Solar Panel to Roof Rack Crossbar T-Slot
    To mount the Go Power solar panel like # 34282182 to the Rhino-Rack crossbars you would need to adjust the crossbars to the correct width for your panel. Then you can use the Truck Rack T-Slot Fit Kit for Malone Kayak Carriers # MPG8287 or Crossbar Adapters for Rhino-Rack J-Style Kayak Carriers S510, S511, and S512 # KC-FK8 with the security tool to give you enough hardware for two of the solar panel brackets.

The Malone AirFlow2 crossbars are 3" wide x 1" tall and the DownLoader will fit this so you can use these dimensions as a reference plus if you have the T-slots on your crossbars you can use the Fit Kit # MPG8287 and not have to worry about the clamps fitting at all.

    All of the crossbar sizes of the Inno Aero crossbars that we have listed as confirm fits for your 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLA 250 are the available size options that Inno has for you based on your crossbar length needs for the vehicle. Depending on what accessories/cargo you need to transport, you can use more or less crossbar space. The length does determine how long the crossbars stick out past the feet. If you are planning on transporting a kayak, I recommend the longer roof rack bar system...

  • Using Adapter Kit for Malone Downloader on Aero Bars
    The Malone DownLoader Kayak Carrier with Tie-Downs - J-Style - Folding - Side Loading, part # MPG114MD, should attach to your aero bars without the Truck Rack Crossbar T-Slot Fit Kit for Malone Kayak Carriers, part # MPG8287. The DownLoader comes with four 7mm bolts and four 8 mm bolts. These bolts are long enough to go around your vehicle's aero bars. The T-Slot kit you ordered is designed for customer's who want to attach the DownLoader via the t-slots of their aero bars, that is why...

  • Comparing Malone J-Style Kayak Carriers
    You're correct the J-Pro2, part # MPG117MD, is a newer model of the J-Pro. The difference between the two is the J-Pro2 has more padding to protect the kayaks. Other than that and the color they're basically the same. The DownLoader, part # MPG114MD, has the ramps and is compatible with the Telos XL, part # MPG351XL, which is the additional load assist available from Malone. The upright arms can be folded down when you're not using the carrier for better roof clearance in case you park...

  • Kayak Carrier That Fits on Thule TracRac Crossbars
    I have a solution for you, and the reason you're having such trouble is that the crossbars on the Thule TracRac Ladder Racks, similar to the # TH43002XT-501, are slightly larger than normal crossbars that are used on roof racks. Because of this, you won't be able to use any kayak carriers that mount with clamps or U bolts around the bars. With that being said, you will be able to use the Aero Style Crossbar T-Slot Fit Kit # MPG8287 to mount the Malone J-Pro 2 # MPG117MD in the T-slots...
