The Malone Trailer Tongue Kickstand with Wheel helps keep your trailer level when unhitched from your vehicle and also makes it easy to move your trailer around by yourself. The Malone Trailer Tongue Kickstand with Wheel folds up easily to store under your Malone Microsport Trailers tongue, but is easy to drop down when you need it with a push button release. The Malone Trailer Tongue Kickstand with Wheel also pivots 360 degrees to allow you the maximum amount of flexibility when trying to position your trailer in just the right spot once it has been unhitched from your vehicle.
I bought this to go on my Yakima kayak trailer and another for a small utility trailer I have. It works great and folds nicely out of the way. I will be buying two more for family members that have kayak trailers.
This was purchased for a Malone MicroSport Trailer. The instructions directed it to be mounted to the trailer tongue using bolts placed through the “inner holes” of the top and bottom mounting plates (the inner holes are intended for the bolts on each side to be immediately adjacent to the tongue). However, the inner holes on one side of the bottom mounting plate were too close to the welded adjacent kickstand support structures, thereby preventing placement of the lock washers and nuts on that side. I solved the problem by placing the bolts through the provided outer holes of the plates on that side. The plates on that side became slightly bowed with the bolts and nuts tightened up, but appear to be stable. Because this seemed to work, I needed the tongue support accessory immediately, and there was no guarantee the next one would be any better, I did not send back the product for replacement. Otherwise, it seems well built and is very functional. I wrote Malone and ACK notifying them of this.
Malone has identified this issue and correcting the tolerances so this isn't a problem in the future. Using the outer holes is acceptable.
Do yourself a favor and get this for your Malone trailer. No more gymnastics trying to slide a bucket under the trailer tongue with the weight of kayaks and gear are on you. It works great with the retractable tongue. ACK top notch on delivery; as usual.
I give it five stars! I am so pleased how the tongue kickstand wheel completes the trailer assembly. My wife and I can push our two kayaks around our property and various boat laucnhes with minimal effort even over rough surfaces. The assembly was a snap, using the same quality hardware and assembly illustrations as the trailer assembly itself.
