The Malone AutoLoader is result of years of extreme testing, technical upgrades, and Malone's commitment to providing only the best. The AutoLoader is the classic J-style kayak rack but with a twist. The rack almost more of a c-shape and the back is designed to flex a little to help conform to your boat's hull. Built into the rack are two holes that allow you to very easily anchor your tie down straps.
The installation of the Malone DownLoader is super easy with their Jawz universal mounting adapter. This adapter allows for tool-free installation on round, square, and factory oval load crossbars. Each rack arm comes well padded with two long strips of rubber synthetic rubber. These not only protect your hull, but also help grip it and prevent it from moving around in the rack. Another great feature about the AutoLoader are the built-in boarding ramps. These eliminate the need to lift the kayak up and into the carriers. Instead, you can just set you boat up against the rack and slide your boat into place!
Car rack accessories should make kayaking easier and more enjoyable by allowing you to maximize your time on the water. At Malone, we strive to give the consumer the best value in the market with every product we make, providing simple-to-use innovative solutions to your transports needs through state-of-the-art engineering and design. The Malone AutoLoader was the first J-style kayak carrier in the market and the first carrier in the industry to feature a built-in boarding ramp and corrosion-resistant composite construction. Installation of the AutoLoader is quick and easy on any type of cross rail – round, square, or factory oval – with our universal Jawz adapter. Simply use the bolts and T-knobs provided to attach the carriers to the cross rail.
Before loading your kayak, you should pre-dress the straps on the carriers. Loop the straps through the top slot on both carriers until they’re even and place the straps over the front and rear of the vehicle. Loading your kayak is much easier with the AutoLoader and its built-in boarding ramps. Lift and place the kayak on the boarding ramps. Change your grip on the kayak, so that you can push it up the boarding ramps until it drops securely in the carrier. The deep draft and rubber padding of the AutoLoader holds the boat securely in place. At this point, you are free to tie down and secure the kayak whenever you’re ready. Simply bring the front and rear straps over the kayak. Thread the free end of each strap through the inside bottom slot. Wrap the free end down under the cross bar and up through the slot on the boarding ramp. Thread the free end through the buckle and tighten. The AutoLoader will gently flex to fit the kayak for superior hold and protection. Remember to always secure your kayak with bow and stern lines for added security. It’s really that easy and that affordable. If you found some free time to get out on the water, you don’t want to waste any of it struggling with loading and unloading your kayak. Malone’s AutoLoader is another revolution in the paddle sports market that’s changing the way you get there.
