The Malone Telos Load Assist temporarily attaches to the J-style MPG114MD Downloader and provides a safe way to vertically raise the kayak from waist height into a position where it can easily be loaded into the carrier. You can detach the Telos and use it on the other side to load your second kayak into another DownLoader or store it in the trunk for unloading later. There is simply no other load assist system in the market with this versatility at this value.

Works great. Sure comes in handy when loading 2 kayaks on an SUV roof.
It's easy to assemble, easy to use and does the job once you get the boat onto the loader's cradles, but for a heavy boat (like a 63-lb. sit-on-top), you STILL need help getting it off the ground. Overall, I like this loader, but I've concluded that I need a trailer.
Had to sand down one end cap to get it to fit but love it now. Very easy to load. You may have to fold in mirrors if your kayak is very long.
Product really helps, especially if you have a heavy kayak or are doing it alone. Amazon had them for the same price, but with a 1-2 month wait! ACK got it to me in less than a week!
