Re: Cargo Barrier


Lads,

I'm looking at getting an ausguard cargo barrier for my sunroof equipped x-trail. Has anyone had one fitted before, or does anyone know where the connection points are? I can't find any reference to this in this thread so far. The guy who installs them in Brisbane (the only place I can find that does them) is on holidays emoticon

I'm keen to ensure that it sits as close to the rear seats as possible, and also that the mount points are to my liking. I'm not that keen on having them mounted near the tailgate with a long piece of metal running back to the rear seats.

Any help appreciated.

Previous page, Naff said he had the Ausguard barrier.

I don't think there are actually any defined fixing points for the barrier.

Naff had fixing points installed for rear-seat and front-seat positioning.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Gooday all,
We are planning a trip across to Perth soon and I want to fit a barrier behind the front seats.

We seldom use the rear seats as seats,so figured that area may as well be flat to fit in all the stuff tha missus wants to cart from one side of the country to the other 'just in case she needs it'.

Has anyone got this set up and able to post some pics or maybe even a copy of the templte/instructionsd to fit same.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Gooday Kev, yep, I saw that info from Nath but that barrier in the pic is fitted behind the rear seats, I want to fit our behind the front seats if thats a possible.
Nath does say there are mounting points at the front seats but I can't spot them.
Maybe someone has a pic of the forward installation.

(still haven't got to that Nubira mate, the daughter's been using the car while over here from Perth. It will happen though.)

Lance, the first pic in Nathan's post is showing the additional anchor points which are located above the rear passenger doors. These are additional anchor points that are put there at the time of the installation and I don't believe the factory cargo barrier has them in their set-up.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Lance,

 My suggestion may seem weird, but what about just using the original rear mounting points, and then having a metal fab shop make up some extension rods so you can mount the barrier at the front and still use the rear mounting points. Hard to explain, sorry. (if you know what I mean)

 EDIT: Forgot to add, my Pajero was set up in a similar way and it worked a treat. Sorry, can't find any pics.

Re: Cargo Barrier


Brett,

While your suggestion is workable you gonna have to remember that fitting a cargo barrier must conform to safety standards and the mounting points chosen by each cargo barrier manufacturer takes that into account.

Somehow I don't think that driving around with such long metal extension rods would be a good idea, considering the fact that they could potentially end-up like swords inside the car in case of an accident!

Re: Cargo Barrier


Ok, version 2.

 You are going to face a problem of securing the base of the barrier, due to it sitting over the rear seat footwells.

 Why not secure a piece of 12mm marine ply to the floor to give a flat surface to work with. Simply use the existing bottom barrier securing points to the ply. If you make this ply long enough, the weight of all the contents will keep it pretty secured. You could also 'self tap' some screws into the floor, if you are sure that there is nothing underneath that may get damaged.

 As for the top, again get some small extensions made up, but use the rear grab handles (once removed) as your anchor points.

 How does that sound ???

 JUST THINKING OUTSIDE THE SQUARE.. emoticon
