Malone SteelTop Roof Rack

The Malone SteelTop roof rack lets you carry gear and accessories on the roof of your vehicle with raised, factory side rails. This complete roof rack system includes 2 steel, square crossbars and 4 towers. The full-length crossbars extend past the towers to give you more mounting space for carriers, and the towers have built-in locks to protect the rack from theft. The rack clamps onto your raised side rails and tightens down with the included tool, so it's easy to remove and install.


Strong, Steel Crossbars

Malone SteelTop Crossbar without Endcap

The durable crossbars are made of steel and have a black vinyl coating to protect them from corrosion and keep them looking new. The bars also have plastic endcaps to protect the interiors from the elements and to give your roof rack a finished look.


Durable Towers with Built-In Security

Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Towers

The towers are made of molded nylon that won't fade or wear down when exposed to the elements. Each tower includes a nylon cover with a built-in lock to deter would-be thieves from removing the rack from your roof. The covers also protect the towers' interior and hardware from the elements.


Easy Installation with Rubber-Coated Steel Clamps

Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Rubber Clamps

The towers attach to your vehicle's raised, factory side rails with rubber-coated steel clamps. The rubber coating provides a superior grip on your side rails and protects them from damage during installation and use.


Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Installation Tool

To tighten, simply turn the bolt inside the tower assembly with the included installation tool until the clamps are snug.


Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Rubber Spacer Blocks

Rubber spacer blocks are included to fit smaller side rails. If the clamps don't tighten enough to your side rails, just slide a spacer block onto the clamps before tightening them.


Once assembled, the towers and crossbars stay together as one unit, which makes removing, storing, and reinstalling the system a snap. To remove, simply remove the cover and loosen the bolts inside the towers with the installation tool.


Maximum Cargo Carrying Capacity

Malone SteelTop Roof Rack Full-Length Crossbars

The SteelTop includes full-length crossbars that extend past the towers. The increased length gives you more space to mount accessories and carriers to your roof rack. The bars are compatible with most universal, clamp-on accessories and carriers.

Rack was priced right and is compatible with any accessory I've thrown on it. Used with factory running rails on two different cars: a 2005 Subaru Impreza wagon and a 2013 VW Jetta Sportwagen. I like how they lock and I'm 100% confident they will stay secure. Only negative really is noise but that will be the same with any square rack. Get an aerodynamic rack if you are driving expressways a lot. Even in the diesel which has more sound muting than a normal car these things sing at 80mph.


Comments
A great solution for reducing the wind noise with a square bar roof rack is to add a fairing to help better defect the wind. For a fairing that will fit your Jetta Sportwagen and Subaru Impreza, I recommend a fairing around 34 inches such as the Yakima WindShield Fairing # Y05016
Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 34" Long
$125.00
. Another, slightly smaller, option is the Rhino-Rack Fairing at 32 inches long, # RRRF1
Rhino-Rack Fairing for Roof Racks - 32" Long
$93.60
. A fairing is a bit of an investment, but if you find you are driving at interstate speeds often, it is a great way to help quiet your roof rack.

Very good basic roof rack. Fairly easy to install. The only thing that takes a little more time then I would have liked is tightening the rack onto the roof rails with the allen wrench. That takes several minutes for all four attachment points. Other than that a basic reliable roof rack.

Easily installed, sturdy well-made rack, great price. This rack is 2" wider than a 4' sheet of plywood making it ideal for transporting sheet goods. It will also be great to carry ladders which I do frequently for painting. Because it is a Malone brand it will pair perfectly with my Malone 2 kayak rack, (also a great product, but that's another review!)

3 star is for the product, but I should mention that eTrailer.com got 5 STAR for the service. Now to the product: Pro: Easy to install, light weight and seem strong/durable. Con: wind noise At 40mph the noise/whistling sound came in, and above 60mph is noticeably loud. I don't have anything to compare, since this is the first crossbar I've installed. I will try to move the bar around and see if it makes any difference. The good thing is I can remove this crossbar (and it's easy and quick to do it) and just put it on when I need them, and therefore I'm keeping it. But I don't think I would recommend it to anyone, especially if they own the same car like mine, because maybe this just a car issue, many other reviewer shares good experience with it. I will update this review if I can improve on the wind noise.


Comments
Leonard,If you are having trouble with wind noise I would recommend part # Y05017
Yakima WindShield Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long

. This Yakima fairing will deflect the wind around your roof rack reducing wind noise.

Wind noise from a square rack is always an issue but racks go off and on easily. They have held up well. Although the clamp onto my roof rail is not a perfect match if works well and is totally secure.
Ross H - 07/18/2021

Thank you for your follow up. Roof racks can add some wind noise. Luckily there is a solution for that. I recommend the fairing part # INA261
Inno Fairing for Roof Racks - 40" Long - Black
$95.28
. The fairing will divert the wind up and over the bars to cut down on the noise.

This has proved to be a fine rack, easy to get on and off. Sturdy for several kayaks and I could use my Thule kayak rack on it. The gripping device is not perfectly tailored for each individual car but it is a solid attachment system. You can't go wrong for the price. As for the whistling, yeah they do. Mine did not for a while, then started whistling. I tried to plug up the little gaps in the attachment and the noise got worse. Go figure. I take if off for long trips because I find it irritating. Others may whistle as well, who knows. Otherwise no complaints.


Comments
Works great for the price, sturdy and easy to put on and take off. Oddly, it does whistle at times, more during the winter. Go figure.

Shipping was fast, product came pretty much assembled. It took about 5 minutes to adjust and install. I used this to support my wives car top carrier as she needs to deliver mail. It seems very sturdy and it will even fit on our Honda odyssey if needed. I would recommend this to anyone.

Still holding strong. My wife uses them to hold a top carrier for delivering packages as a US MAIL Rural carrier and really gives them the abuse bouncing down all these country dirt roads.

So far so good, a little wind noise but I was used to it within a day. Doesn’t bother me just alert your passengers so they are not startled when in the car. They took a bit of time to figure out because I kept trying to snap them into place but you don’t need to do that. If you sit them in place as much as possible, start tightening the screw and it will pop itself into place. After they were tightened, I pulled down just a bit to make sure they are locked tight. Overall super quick delivery! One downfall was only with the delivery but that is bc of USPS. It was raining and the mail person left the box on the porch in the rain vs 3 inches further under the overhang. Etrailer was great!!!!

The crossbars I recieved from etrailer worked out great. They will help us add space for our family vacation.The customer service I received from Ashley was top of the line as well. I called on a Thursday night and asked if I could possibly get it by the following Wednesday and she said I should recieve the crossbars no later than Tuesday. That was perfect for me. On Saturday I received a message saying my order has arrived. How about that for service! I will definitely use etrailer again.

Solid bars, no rattling, no issues, have had on the vehicle for a year. Left the bars on for the winter but took off the bike racks I had mounted on them. Still look and feel good, will put up the bike rack as needed. There is some wind noise but that's pretty minor and is not an issue for me.


Comments
The bars look and function as the day I installed them, no rattles, sturdy and strong. The square shape does promote some wind noise, which I still dont mind much.

I liked the product out of the box, and appreciated steel instead of aluminum. They were plenty sturdy to hold up what we needed, but not to stay on the vehicle apparently. The parts where the bars fit across the factory-installed rails seemed fairly sturdy compared to the previous bars I had. So after securing these brand new sturdier cross bars to the parallel factory-installed rails on our 4Runner, we loaded our two kayaks on top and headed off to the Buffalo River. A little over halfway there, the cross bars ripped off the factory rails and our kayaks flew off our roof into the road behind us. Thankfully the kayaks weren’t damaged and the cars behind us didn’t wreck. We are fairly certain we installed the bars correctly; the screws were tightened to the point of lightly denting the factory parallel rails, and they fit snugly. We installed the covers and locks. When we inspected them after the accident, it just looked like the screws vibrated loose. Maybe we should’ve used some thread-locker or something? But good bars cannot fly off your vehicle with your cargo.


Comments
When transporting kayaks, it is important to make sure both the bow and stern are tied down to your vehicle. Securing the bow and stern help reduce the movement of your kayaks during transport. There should be more information on securing the bow and stern in the owners manual for your rooftop kayak carrier. I have also linked a help article with more information and helpful tips

I have owned the rack for 1 years now. Very good construction stays rock solid. Really like having the ability to make small adjustments to the spacing of bars if needed. I feel it is a good product for the price. With that being said this is the first after market rack I’ve had on a vehicle. I will not purchase square bars for any future racks. At about 40 MPH you start to hear the wind noise and it gets louder as you go faster. I seen this in other reviews when I was purchasing and just thought they were making it seem worse then it could be, it certainly is annoying. Depending on what you have attached to the rack it will he’l help the noise. When I have Either of my Thule boxes on top it completely eliminates the additional noise, thanks to the aerodynamic box.

2007 Toyota FJ Cruiser

This product solved a problem for me. I have a Toyota FJ Cruiser 2007 and the original poles on the rack broke on the plastic part. Could not find that replacement and had to go and find some so I can carry on my kayaking gear. This product arrived quickly to Puerto Rico and they were easy to install. Had no problems and been using them for the whole year. They are a little bit taller than the original ones and also dont forget the tools to move as you might need to move them. I now carry the tools so if I need to move it I can do so. Definitely would buy from etrailer again. Thanks!

This rack is great value vs some of the "name" brand options. Would give it a 5 star but it's a bit noisy when we don't have the Thule carrier on it. Rides quiet with the carrier on and it's a breeze to take on and off.

Sturdy and easy to attach, it scarred the rails a bit and makes a lot of noise unless loaded. I take it on and off because of this.

  • Recommended Inexpensive Roof Rack for 2016 Jeep Cherokee with Short Bar Space
    The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack part # MPG201 which is 50" long or the Inno Square Crossbar System part # INB117 and part # INFR which is 46" long are the two best options we have for a 2016 Jeep Cherokee with shorter bar space in mind. These are both excellent cost effective options but the Inno Roof Rack has a higher weight capacity and is a bit better quality so that's what I recommend.

  • Square Bar Roof Racks that Fit 2019 Toyota RAV4 with Roof Rails
    If the rails on the roof of your 2019 Toyota RAV4 were raised rails (you could put your under them) then yes, the Malone roof rack part # MPG201 would fit and work well. But since you said you have flush rails (rails without a gap between them and the vehicle roof) the best option we have is the Thule square crossbar roof rack part numbers # TH712200, # TH460R, and # THKIT3177. This rack is essentially the nicest square bar roof rack that fits your vehicle.

  • Recommended Roof Rack to Use the Yakima ShowDown on a 2013 Toyota RAV4 with Raised Rails
    If you are interested in the Malone square bar roof rack then I recommend going with the 58" bars # MPG202 over the 50" bars # MPG201 for your 2013 Toyota RAV4. Reason being that the Yakima ShowDown # Y04081 requires that the crossbars extend at least 3-1/2" beyond the towers and I don't think you will achieve this with the 50" bars. As far as best goes, the Malone roof racks are good but they are entry level roof racks so they aren't quite as nice as other name brand options. In my...

    I do have a solution for you, however the Malone SteelStop Roof Rack # MPG201 referenced in your question will only attach to raised factory rails with a gap underneath and won't work well with the flush rails on your New Zealand Subaru Outback Wagon. There is not a traditional roof rack system available that is designed to mount to the flush rails on your vehicle. Your best option for installing a roof rack on your Outback Wagon is with the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B....
