To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
So the new is 3/5 in quality, fastners, clips and general size but based on the cost and overall value I place it at 4/5 rating. Good enough for full size sedan, soccer mom/dad SUV, or compact truck. Too large for compact car/SUV. Too small for larger trucks. Solid enough for interior trunk usage but I don't think the net or hardware clips can survive in a truck bed for 3 years.
Look at the pictures and you can see I have two nets in my Camry 2015. The net closest to the bumper was purchased as only a net and an exact fit for OEM hooks. It is well made, and has closing hooks, and a good height. 5/5
The net further inside is meant to prevent my storage box from sliding. I have accelerated on a freeway or exited it and the box hit or bumped the trunk latch open while driving. So it is highly necessary. As you can see the net is tall enough to cover the entire trunk of a full size sedan but I didn't want it like that. s you can see it is still loose but I can't mount the screws any deep because it is an empty space or into the car panel.
Second the screw hook mounts were harder too install because you have to pre-drill the holes and then hand tighten them. Luckily I have strong hands. Other models use a screw so you can drill the hole and screw it with a tool or drill. The screw is solid but if it had different threads I could've used a pre-drill hole but the dimensions of the net would've been too low and loose. So size of the net is an issue. I used clips to take up the slack. The other clips I think only work if you have a eyelets to clip into but they are flimsy. I think they would break in trunk bed situation.
What makes this nice and the reason I chose this one is the inclusion of the additional hardware. My car, a Honda Accord, has hooks at the top to attach to but nothing at the bottom. I used the snap hook hardware which is shown assembled. It has a snap on retainer but it requires removing the snap buttons to get access. I then drilled a 3/8": hole through the liner, inserted the snap hook through the hole and pressed the locking cap in place. A word of caution. Many of the little buttons that hold in liners and such have two discs visible when installed. Make certain you only pop up the smaller disc or you destroy the pop-in and will be visiting the auto parts store. I thought about using the screw in kind but didn't because I didn't want to blindly drill into a hydraulic or electric line.
I purchased a similar cargo net to hang from the roof of my '03 Honda Element. I think I paid $10 for just the net. When I realized I would need some screw-in tie-down points, I checked Amazon and found a set for about $7. But then I found this which included the net, tie-down points, mini carabiners, clips, and a pouch for a couple of bucks more. Durability is pretty good. I mean this isn't a heavy duty cargo net but it holds light items such as clothes just fine.
But to help keep my dog from jumping in the front seat she's very crafty on getting through the smaller ones that just block that little bit of the in between the seats even though I do have a small car POTUS to try to keep her out and so far as there's no way she can get all the way around it by the second one to keep things from sliding around the trunk and that's working okay but it stretches a little bit more than I would like but I would buy again if I needed to
My best advice for you is to look at the measurements and see if that fits your trunk. Also look in your trunk to see where you can place the hooks to hold the netting. It comes with 3 options to hold the netting- small carabineer clips (you may need to get larger ones), plastic hooks that hold up surprisingly well and can fit in small hole, and a plastic bolt with a plastic clip that can be placed where an existing screw is. The idea is to have the netting folded like a hammock where you can hook the top of each side either together on the same hook or 2 hooks close together and at the same height. I have a Toyota Tundra limited and this netting is not wide enough, but I also have an old Ford Ranger and the netting fit that truck better. This netting also works in my compact Infiniti car. This is a great way to be organized and prevent items from sliding all the way back in the truck bed.
This net is working just fine in my BMW X3 for over 2 years -- The corner elastic cording was folded (down and back) to give the correct length in My cargo area. The snap hooks are not great quality but adequate for the job. I mostly just stuff my cargo under the net and it keeps most item secure as I round the corners on my way home. I don't think I would use this net with a roof rack but inside of a trunk or the rear of an SUV it works just fine.
I bought cargo nets with end seams (which I love!), but I picked up this one also for when I want to slip long items into it. I run them lengthwise on each side of my 4Runner (with the seats down), so popping in a couple skis, snowboard, etc, works well. Could also be used other ways, since it is made for versatility. I'm happy. The bag is nice, but the carabiners are cheap (one broke on first use). No biggie...I have lots of carabiners.
It works fairly well. I had to figure out my own way to fasten it because there wasn't really a place to put any of the hooks in my Mercury Mariner. But it holds and keeps everything in. If you're imaginative and can work with tools, this shouldn't be an issue.
What’s not to love? The quality was very good. The instructions were very precise. All of the parts and hardware seem to be of good quality. And finally, it certainly does the job. I am very pleased with this and can highly recommend it.
