Re: Cargo Barrier


On a similar subject, one of the things about wagons that has always concerned me is the fact that anything in the luggage area can be easily stolen if someone wants to smash a window (Cargo blinds may stop people from seeing valuables but sometimes they can also make people think it might be worth having a look underneath.).

So, I wonder if the standard or Milford barriers could be fitted with a horizontal metal barrier that would prevent thieves from easily getting at anything stored underneath it? Shouldn't be too hard to anchor it except maybe at the rear door end.

I had a horizontal barrier made for the Jeep and, because it was just below window level, the only way they could get to anything underneath it was to open the rear door. Not foolproof, I know, but it meant they had to pick the lock - they couldn't slide a hooked bar in to spring it like they could with the side doors.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Hi,

I understand that Milford sell a vertically fitted net barrier. I am not sure how it is fitted. (I have seen one in a Volvo)

Has anyone any experience of this?

I was also wondering if a net barrier would still allow the rear blind to be used and clipped to the seat backs. I would think that a metal barrier would not allow that.

Dunoon.

Hi John,

[url=[sign in to see URL] is the Milford safety net that you mentioned.

I think with this set-up, you will still be able to have the cargo blind, but you wont be able to use the portion that attaches to the back of the seats.

Re: Cargo Barrier


I can confirm that a metal cargo barrier will not allow you to clip the rear blind to the seats. I was wondering where they were supposed to clip on! emoticon

When I bought my exy, it had the cargo barrier in it and I've not removed it since... so wasn't aware of the seat clips for the blind anyway.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Naff, with regard to clipping the rear section of the cargo blind back to the cargo barrier, when I had mine fitted in the vehicle I cut a couple of small sections of the black riser tubes or similar you use in the garden for the sprinklers, then split them down the middle with a stanley knife, slipped them over the corresponding bar of the mesh on the barrier & hey presto it clips back again. Hope this simple idea helps

Phil

Re: Cargo Barrier


Question re Fitting:

I am thinking of a Milford Net and would want to fit it myself. So, I am fishing for a little info before I get too keen.

Can anyone tell me how either the steel barrier or the net are fixed to the upper section of the vehicle on either side?

Is their already provision for a nut or bolt to hold brackets or similar or has a hole to be cut into the metal support?

In other words, what has to be done at roof level to fix the barrier?

Many thanks.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Dunoon,to fit the steel barrier 3 holes either side need to be drilled for the upper mounts. The centre hole is 20mm dia to allow the mounting bracket to be slipped in & then a plastic cover plate is screwed in position by the outer 2 holes. The centre hole is for the barrier screw when the barrier is in position.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Jalal, sounds good but make sure the fitting kit comes with it as if it doesn't it'll cost you another 90-100 dollars on top of the price to buy it!!
