Malone Crossbar Specs

Gunwale Bracket Canoe Carrier

Malone BracketsMalone Bracket front view

The Malone BigFoot Pro holds your canoe hull side up on your roof rack crossbars. These gunwale brackets are lined with foam pads to protect your canoe from scratches and scuffs while loading and during transport. And because the brackets are only 4-1/2" tall, you won't have to lift your canoe much higher than your roof when loading it from the side of your vehicle. This low-profile design also makes it less likely that you'll need to remove the carrier when you park in your garage.

Load Straps and Bow/Stern Tie-Downs


The carrier includes 2 cam-buckle straps to secure your kayak to the rack. A set of bow/stern tie-downs are also included to secure the kayak to the front and back of your vehicle. If your vehicle doesn't have any tie-down points, you can get an anchor kit (sold separately) which will let you create anchor points in the creases of your vehicle's hood and hatch.

Tool-Free, Clamp-On Installation

Malone Brackets installed

The carrier clamps to most crossbars without the need for tools. Simply set the carrier on your crossbars, slide the mounting brackets over the bolts, and secure them with the T-knobs.

Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Roof Rack w/ Tie-Downs - Gunwale Brackets - Clamp On - MPG112MD

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (20 Customer Reviews)

These gunwale brackets let you carry 1 canoe, hull side up, on your roof rack. It mounts to most crossbar styles, and it includes heavy-duty straps and bow/stern tie-downs to secure your canoe to the roof rack on your vehicle.


The Malone Bigfoot Pro Canoe Roof rack is excellent and is super strong. I have two sets of them now, one for a Malone Aero Bars Car Roof Rack, and one for a Rhino Aero Bars Car Roof Rack (both bought at Etrailer). The quality is first rate, so why the 4 stars? The reason is that the support back of the canoe racks is too high. It only needs to be one inch high which matches the rubber pad. Instead it is 3.75 inches high. Every inch higher than necessary makes it harder to lift the canoe over the backs of the canoe racks. If I could cut them easily I would do it, but it looks like it would be too difficult to cut the metal back down to 1 inch. The Canoe racks are even better using the T-Slot Integration Hardware Kit for Aero Styled CrossBars, MPG915. That kit has 5/8" long (functional length) bolts which fit the Malone Aero Bars Car Rack. For the Rhino Rack, it uses a different kit that has 7/8" long bolts. Using the T Slot allows full use of the entire aero bars.


I bought these brackets for my Ascend H-12 kayak. The kayak transports face-down on Thule roof racks. These high-quality brackets are easy to install/remove and inhibit any side to side slippage while providing a secure tie-down. I highly recommend these brackets for anyone transporting canoes or kayaks on their rooftops.

Using the Malone Bigfoot for a year now with absolutely no complaints!


Nice kit for canoe tie down. Would have preferred ratchet straps to hold the canoe. I changed them out for ones I already had.



Dont use ratchet straps on a canoe. You can, but you risk damaging it. Cam straps are great.


Just excellent. Holds tight. Easy to position and set up.


First off, when I'm looking for something for my car, truck or camper, etrailer is my 1st online stop. Their pricing is highly competitive and their service is tops. Finding and ordering the Malone big foot was no exception. Ordering was a breeze and communication about my order was very prompt. The product itself is perfect. It installed on my Yakima corebars in minutes, fits perfectly and seems to be of the highest quality. I purchased this product for hauling ladders, lumber and any number of long loads that need to be stable.


This is the perfect rack system for safety caring my new canoe!


These are great! Kept our canoe snugly in place driving from New Hampshire to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota. Loved this so much we got my in laws a set for Christmas!


It took some measuring and perfecting the layout but my canoe fits perfect on top of my Jeep. The info and description on etrailer was great. Shipped fast and I’m ready to go camping.


Perfect for a canoe - even a wide one with very curved gunnels. I put them on a 58in Malone square bar, but they would fit just about any cross bar I've seen.


well worth the money. canoe is very sturdy. more so than with any foam and straps I've used.


My experience working with your company was first class, as was the product. Your saleslady was very knowledgeable in answering my questions. My order was exactly what I needed, thanks to Mariah. A pleasure compared to the usual off shore representative that is reading from a book, speaks poor English, and knows little about the product you are calling about.


Easy to use and very effective.


getting a vehicle properly equipped to carry canoes is a daunting task.


Worked nicely, easy to install.


They got it here in record time AAA


Great quality and fast delivery. Exactly as described


Fast delivery and perfect transaction.

  • How Can I Carry A Canoe On My 2021 Ford Transit Connect
    The Malone SeaWing Kayak Carrier and Load Assist w/ Tie-Downs - Rear Loading - Clamp On, part # MPG113MD, carries kayaks by cradling the hull. Canoes should be carried upside down. Kayak carriers are not designed to conform to the shape of a canoe, so you could damage the hull. The safest way to transport a canoe is on its gunwales.

  • Can Malone MicroSport Trailer Be Used to Transport 40" Wide Canoe and Kayak
    The Malone MicroSport Trailer # MPG460G that you referenced is perfect for transporting both your 40" wide canoe and an additional kayak. This trailer can support up to 500 pounds of weight with the integrated crossbars and offers plenty of width for both your watercrafts. To secure the canoe to the crossbars I recommend the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier # MPG112MD, and for the kayak the Malone J-Pro # MPG117MD will work perfectly. Both carriers include the needed tie-down straps to...

    We can help you figure out a workable roof rack/canoe carrier option for transporting your Old Town Saranac 146. This boat is 14-feet 6-inches long, 36-inches wide and weighs 79-lbs. The Malone Steel Top roof rack # MPG201 uses square crossbars and is a confirmed fit on the 2013 Subaru XV Crosstrek with factory installed roof side rails that run front to back.

  • Malone Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier for Carrying Wide Canoe on 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    I have a perfect solution for you at essentially the same price point but it is not recommended to mount the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier # MPG112MD on the outside of the feet of the Malone SteelTop Roof Rack - Square Crossbars # MPG202 because this type of set up will not be as stable as the more centered option I recommend. Instead of the square crossbars, what I highly recommend for your 40-1/2 inch canoe is the BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier # MPG112MD with the Malone AirFlow2 Roof...

  • Will SportRack Roof Rack Work on 2012 Mazda 2 Hatchback to Carry Canoe
    The SportRack Semi-Custom Roof Rack # SR1010 will work straight-up without any adapters on your 2012 Mazda 2 hatchback and allow you to carry a canoe, so long as you remain under its 130 lb weight capacity. There are canoe carriers you can use that work as loadstops; foam blocks are an option as well but do not offer the same type of security which is why I strongly recommend the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier with Tie-Downs # MPG112MD. The Malone carrier uses brackets which are loadstops...

  • How To Secure a Wenonah Spirit II Canoe On a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee

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 correct parts for your truck are the following: - Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack # RR29XR - Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier # MPG112MD The BigFoot Pro carrier simply clamps onto the crossbars and keeps your canoe in place.

  • Thule Portage or Malone BigFoot Boat Carrier Comparison
    Since the mounting hardware of the Thule Portage part # TH819 is much easier to use than the Malone BigFoot # MPG112MD I would recommend it highly for your boat and 2013 Toyota Highlander with factory crossbars. This rack fits your vehicle and also has the capacity needed for your boat as well.

  • Recommended Trailer for Sea Eagle FishSkiff 16
    The Malone LowBed MicroSport Trailer part # MPG464-LB can accommodate boats up to 20' long and has crossbars 78" wide with a capacity of 800 lbs so it will be a great choice for a Sea Eagle FishSkiff 16. In order to secure the boat you'll need some sort of tie-down or a carrier like the Malone BigFoot Pro Canoe Carrier part # MPG112MD.

  • Gunwale Style Kayak Carrier for Yakima Round Bars
    I recommend the Malone BigFoot Pro gunwale-style carrier # MPG112MD for use on your round Yakima roof rack bars. The BigFoot Pro features tall bases made of molded nylon for durability and corrosion resistance and it includes both load straps and bow/stern tie downs. Its 165-lb weight rating means it's good for kayaks and also for canoes. The similar Thule Portage Canoe Carrier # TH819 also fits your round bars but it has a slightly lower weight rating than the Malone.

  • Canoe Carriers for Use on Malone MicroSportXT Trailer
    The Malone MicroSportXT trailer # MPG460XT does come with 78-inch square crossbars and these are the widest part of the entire trailer. Longer crossbars could pose a hazard so I do not recommend changing. Since the Old Town Saranac 146 has a base weight of 79-lbs and a width of 36-inches your existing bars should work fine to let you use two of the Malone MegaWing Carrier # MPG207. Each MegaWing carrier can handle boats up to 150-lbs. If you prefer a carrier that will allow you to transport...

  • Economic Roof Rack and Canoe Carrier Compatible with 2019 Subaru Forester
    The Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack 58" # MPG216 or the 50 inch # MPG215 are aero style roof racks that will fit your 2019 Subaru Forester. I would lean toward the longer option, but recommend you check the width of your canoe to determine your need. You can alternatively use the steel square bar # MPG201 or # MPG202 for a more economical option but I recommend upgrading for the minor price difference to reduce wind noise and give you the top channel mount for compatible accessories.

    In order to carry boats on the roof of a 2012 Honda Pilot you'll need to first start with a roof rack. If you have the raised side rails which shoulds like what you described then the best option to get the longer crossbars is with the Evo Raised Rail Feet for Thule Crossbars part # TH710401. These will then allow you to use the Thule ProBar Evo Crossbars like part # TH713700 which are 79" long but can be cut to fit. In regards to mixing a roof rack for bare roof and raised side rails,...

    I may have a solution for you, but with something the size of a canoe this is fairly common and there's not really a way around it by carrying your boat in this manner. For this reason I recommend getting a small trailer like the Malone MicroSportXT Trailer - 78" Crossbars - Retractable Tongue - 800 lbs # MPG460XT since it would get rid of everything that's going on with the vibrations.

  • How to Carry Canoe & Cargo With 2011 Subaru Outback With Factory Roof Rack
    While you can haul cargo as well as your canoe with your 2011 Subaru Outback, there's no way to mount a canoe next to a cargo box as the configuration would just be too wide. Crossbars would stick out so much as to be dangerous to anyone walking near your Outback, and there wouldn't be enough support at the ends of the bars. To carry your canoe as well as cargo, you would need a canoe carrier for your Outback's roof rack, and then a hitch with a hitch-mounted cargo carrier. So the best...

    The best roof rack for your Class C motorhome would depend on the shape of it's roof. As long as your roof does not have rounded edges and does not exceed 85-1/2" in width then I recommend the SportRack Pop-Up Camper Roof Rack part # SR1020. This system will provide you with 2 square load bars that have a capacity up to 200 lbs. If your roof does have rounded edges or exceeds 85-1/2" in width then I recommend using a track system like Yakima HardTop SL Roof Rack part # Y01618 which comes...

This is a canoe carrier though designed to carry one upside down. For a carrier that could either carry a kayak or boards the LockRack part # LR54FR would be the better choice.

While we do carry light-duty carriers that are designed to carry kayaks and canoes with built-in carriers like the Malone EcoLight Sport Trailer with V-Style Carriers for 2 Kayaks - 400 lbs # MAL43FR, they most likely will not fit the length of your Adirondack boat (the maximum boat length for the EcoLight is 14 feet).
