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.

again thx for the pics

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.

Use mine all the time to hold all kinds of stuff, especially the school books that are always in there. Works great.

nice, they quoted me $49....you should buy all they have, you could probably sell them for like 35-40 on ebay, easy profit, as its probably less than a $1 to ship

Damn, I've had my car three years and never noticed there was two more clips to hold the net open!

Are there any tools needed for the install? It looks as though the hooks can be screwed in by hand or maybe plyers.

Even better- does anybody have the instructions in pdf form? I would like to take a look.

Thank you in advance!

No. They just screw/unscrew. Takes all of 4 minutes to install the cargo net.

Those trunks are filthy. Someone needs to break out the vacuum cleaner.

You don't screw or unscrew anything. The net slips over the hooks.

He asked how you remove the hooks. To remove them you would just unscrew them.
