    Glad you find it useful. If you have problem with installation, I will show my tip.

    If you look at the photos, the bag has an adjustable strap with a buckle that would be used to hang it off the back of the seat. Instead, it’s long enough to loop around the floating center console.

    Just use a long think stick to hold the clip into position.
    Ordered another one yesterday. I hope it arrived as soon as you get your, so I will show some pictures.

    A think stick! That must be a stick that knows exactly where to position the clip behind the hole, right?

    I think you meant "thin," but with one letter changed, you might have meant "thick," too. A thick stick might hold the clip against the hole better than a thin stick, but it probably takes a thin stick to get the clip where it needs to be.

    I meant thin but what ever as long as you can hold the clip and put it through the square opening to reach the farther hole. Since I am not good at words, I took 1 screw off and take some pics for reference 20180911_150410.jpg 20180911_150419.jpg 20180911_150729.jpg 20180911_150611.jpg

    Hi Jim,

    I’m looking to put the cargo net in but I think I like your install better then Honda’s. Which ancher points did you use for the bottom?

    Since I don't want to drill my car, I hooked the bottom of the net into the corner of the black plastic piece, it firms and holds the net pretty good. 20180914_093650-1.jpg

    Hi Jim, I'm trying to install the cargo net the way you have but I realized after I took the clips out that it wouldn't really "lock" the net hook in since I can't reach the back of the hole. Could you tell me how you did it? Thanks.

    For the cargo net, I replaced the original clip with the hook ring which bought on Ebay and used the small plastic wall anchor to install it in to the hole

    I used Vice Grip to hold the nut in place (in installing OEM cargo hook, which otherwise would require some specialized tool)

    That's awesome. Thanks! I didn't want to drill the hole nor did I feel like spending $30+ to get the rivet nut tool just for this.
    It's crazy to me that these manufactures have these accessories that requires us drilling holes in their instructions.

    I followed your tip and used a small vice grip and it worked great! I used the clips supplied as bolts and only needed to add a washer for the larger hole. The bags perfectly reach the trunk floor. Thanks everyone!

    Thanks for the tips on installing the cargo bag holder. It was a pain to install, but everyone's tips plus the pictures helped.
    Now on to the cargo net...
     
  20. This was great. Also installed the hooks using this method--works perfectly.
