Cargo Net installed

Anyone have a pic of the official net installed in the trunk?

I bought one from Ebay but Im thinking its not really a true fit, just seems odd, was wondering if anyone could show me an official one installed so I could see, thanks in advance

Post up a pic of what yours looks like. I bought one from my local dealer shortly after I bought my car and mine doesn't look like that either.

The one in that photo is upside down. Hook the ends in the top hooks and then open the top of it so one side goes in the upper hooks on the rear panel to form a basket.
The part with two cords is the top.

If yours looks like that then it's installed wrong. As CWI said you have to open it up into a basket. A proper installation uses all 6 hooks.

I'm not sure what the metal loops are for.

I suspect its function is to hold cargo in place.

Everything in my trunk (detail stuff, tools, etc) rides in two husky bags that are held in place with a bungee cord under the speaker deck so it doesn't move and my trunk stays wide open. I wouldn't mind having a cargo net for groceries, etc.

The pictures above are legit. I don't open mine up but keep it closed and only on the back hooks strqight across so things don't move in it at all.

Now I get why the necro thread came back to life ... ha!


... and the Metal loops are used as anchor points for tie downs or bungee cords.

That's what I was figuring until I got to thinking "What would fit into the opening of the trunk that would possible require it to be tied down?"

I use it to teather cooler, camera bags, backpack etc ... stuff that doesn't fit into the cargo net or that will snag on the netting. Just to prevent the other stuff from sliding around (also since I have vert, to make certain that stuff doesn't get in the way of the top when raising and lowering).

Specifically helps to keep things from sliding all over when driving "spiritedly".

Besides the cargo net get the GM trunk mat also. It is a nice rubber mat and things do not slide around it the trunk with it. My laptops I carry for work never fly around back there with the rubber mat. With the carpet I heard them hitting the sides of the car all the time.

I have the Weathertech cargo mat so things are at too big for the net don't slide around anyway.

The cargo net is legit. Mine came with one installed and I use it daily.

That is a great ideal. Nothing is more annoying than hear a can of soda or something rolling around , Now my question is he Ebay one a piece of junk or should you pay 4x more and get the GM brand?If there is such a thing?

I got the ebay one for $30 i think, its appears to be the exact same thing, I wasnt getting the connect the front of the opening to the two front points so it was looking odd, now it looks right.

Stuff slides around the trunk real easy if you don't have the cargo mat. Then you have to go around corners real slow and not take off fast or brake hard.

Wow I would have thought the one on ebay would be cheaper than that. I paid $30 for one from my local dealer.
