mad cargo-nets what's out there?

Iím sick of having stuff in my boot floating around unattached. Tools, spotlight, cables, jumper leads etc. etc. Are there any E series cargo nets available, you know the elastic ones that are suspended from both sides of the boot that can hold loose items. I really think one would be handy. Are there any generic ones that you can pick up from supercheap or somewhere?

Cheers.

Re: cargo-nets what's out there?

How are they normally mounted? I haven't seen one in a faclon before. I'm sure you could buy a BA one but it'd cost your left nut from Ford. I guess you'd need a clip in the inside of the rear 1/4 panel??? I guess you could even mount one up near the back of the rear seats.

Not quite sure how they are mounted. Maybe they clip in to the boot carpet like some brands of carmats clip into the interior carpet. Although this could be a bit flimsy. I remember my grandparents beemers had them, there were clips in the boot carpet, and i think you could take the nets of as you liked. These were a pretty frim setup, the clips were most probably drilled into the actual chassis.

Re: cargo-nets what's out there?

Oh yeah I know them. Just googled it... seems to be a few incidents of eye injury from these things going spastic!

Anyway how about something like this
http://www.menda.com.au/shopexd.asp?id=215 ... also useful if you need to "dry your underwear in a public place inconspicously"
I might just check the cost of a ford one.

i googled to check my spelling and found out about the eye thing.The new ones have a plastic clip not a metal hook .Did you see the one about the trolley boy that died because his trolleys run away on him with the occie attached..over stretching the occie flinging off and hitting him in the throat ..killed him DEAD!.. its probably not funny but sometimes i cant help but laugh at others misfortunes

Re: cargo-nets what's out there?

Yeah I happened upon that article. It came up 1 on the search IIRC. It's amazing the things that can happen to people!

I prefer to lay my jocks on my plenum as I drive. Much more effective!
