Malone MPG202 Roof Rack Fit on 2018 Toyota RAV4


I have a 2018 Toyota RAV4 with side raised rails that run from front to back. I am concerned that the Malone Rack might not tighten down securely to the side roof rails because I cannot tell from the photos online if the rubber coated clamps that partially fit around the side rails are stiff or flexible. It would seem that if there is a stiff metal underneath the rubber coating then the clamp would be secure to the side rail. I am concerned that a flexible clamp would slide up and off the side rail since the clamp does not wrap entirely around the side rail. Are the clamps made of a stiff metal or are they made of something else that will not provide a secure fit to the side rail on my 2018 RAV4? Thank you.

The Malone SteelTop Roof Rack - Square Crossbars - Raised, Factory Side Rails - Steel - 58" Long # MPG202 are a confirmed fit for your 2018 Toyota RAV4. This system will use metal reinforced plastic to give you a strong connection to your raised side rails. It will be a secure system for your vehicle.

If you want the peace of mind from having a complete wrap around your side rails, then I recommend the Inno Square Crossbars # INB117 and Feet # INFR. This system will give you a secure fit with the reinforced strap instead of the clamp style foot.
