Cargo Net

I was wondering if anyone uses their cargo net? I haven't, but I went food shopping for the first time and wow... either I need to slow my driving down around turns, or I'm going to start using the cargo net. Nothing stayed put.

Any pictures out there for the best way to hook up the net ? I've personally found two different ways so far.

Used it one time to hold some stuff down over the cargo floor. I like the cargo organizer better. It holds plenty of grocery sacks, a toolbox, etc.

I used the cargo net all the time for groceries to make sure things didn't get thrown all over the back of the car. But I've now gotten the cargo organizer, and I like it much better! It does a great job of holding things in place and easily folds up out of the way when not needed.

The Cargo Protector is so slippery you have to have something there to hold your stuff. So my cargo net is always up and used all the time.

I would also be interested in some good pictures and a detailed description of how it works and how much you like/use it. All the pics online that I have seen have been very small or very poor quality images, and I can't tell how well it would work and if it's really worth the price.

I never use mine because I've never figured out exactly how to get it set up. Guess I'm cargo net impaired. Pictures of a properly set up net would be great if anyone has them.

As an alternative to the net, I have my groceries bagged in plastic and then hook them on the little hooks on the back of the rear seat head rests. Kind of a pain to reach in and hook them, but keeps the groceries from scattering all over the back.

The rear seats on my Morano have little bars on them. Did you buy hooks to hook into those little bars? How else would you have hooks? Did it come with Grocery hooks? A picture would be appreciated as groceries is my life (I know it's sad)

I've tried to use the cargo net as a basket at the front of the trunk opening using the upper and lower loops. Unfortunately, the cords cannot stretch that far to make it happen. Luckily I kept the cargo net from my old Maxima and that has a much better reach.

It's a shame that the Mo's cago net can only be used to keep down items in the trunk and not hold them, as I mentioned above.

I set mine up like an envelope. I just pull it open and put things inside it. It also works as a divider... you can see I have my golf clubs behind the net and can use the front side of the net for other things. Here are some pictures I took real fast a few min's ago.

I have mine set-up exactly as TheGymKid has except rather than making an envelope, I have one side connected to the rings on the floor right behind the back seats so the net is sort of "L" shaped. I place the grocery bags between the net and the rear hatch, and when I have something that needs to be secured down, I slide it under the net.

My Murano didn't come with a net, so I had to purchase one. I bought the hammock (envelope) style for around $23 and I use it all the time. Great for groceries and any other small items.
