Thanks for the tip.

 When I purchased mine at the show, it was actually just taken off an exee that was on display and it came with no fitting instructions. I made notes of the fitment points, but I guess I got it wrong.

 When I contacted Milford, they suggested that I use the recessed child seat attachments to attach the barrier.

 Since this last thread, I have checked it out again and yeah you are right, Milford gave me the wrong information.

 DO THEY EVEN KNOW THEIR OWN PRODUCT ???

 Thanks for the tip guys. The DIY is appreciated.

Re: Milford Safety Net


 Using Johns (Dunoon) excellent install instructions, I finally fitted the Milford Safety Net into the exy. About a 6 on a 1-10 difficulty scale, but well worth it. Took about 4 hours and the result was fantastic. Easy to remove and looks very sturdy.
 Thanks John.

Interestingly, there are two existing threaded bolt-holes very close to where the holes had to be drilled. Why doesn't Milford utilise them? Perhaps in some other part of the world Nissan sell a net or screen that is easy to fit.



Hi John,

You're right!

There is indeed an genuine nissan net that gets attached to the existing threaded bolt-holes and it serves as dual purpose net.

There is also another accessory, which is the cloths/wet suit hanger/s that uses these existing bolt-holes

I'll be looking at the option of ordering the dual purpose net soon emoticon

Re: Milford Safety Net


These Milford Safety Nets look like the sort of thing we have been looking for.

We just want something we can temporarily put up to block our dog from jumping into the back seat. Still getting him used to driving in the car at all - but unless we restrain him he would be on the drivers lap if he could.

Not to mention his black hair is a little hard to get out of the back seat.

A net like this one could be what we were looking for.

Can people with these installed comment on what the rear vision is like with the net up?

Any chance of some pics with the net down - does the whole thing just lie on the floor?

Cheers.

I really like the look of this dual purpose net too - did you ever follow up getting one?

Re: Milford Safety Net


Michael,

Sorry mate, can't supply pics as my vehicle is still in the shop. But I can tell that vision through the safety net is not an issue. You cant event notice it there. To remove it, you turn two round handles 180 degrees and the whole top support comes undone. This allows you to lay it flat against the back of the seat or on the floor.

The install was very easy, but as with all such projects, the initial cuts into the roof lining are stressful. Perhaps your supplier can do that part for you.

The net is perfect for dogs and naughty children, so feel confident it will work.

Nope Michael, I haven't ordered one yet as I was too busy chasing the hyper roof rails. Will look into it shortly.

No problem. I was showing this one to my wife and she asked if it folded up on the roof?

Little hard to tell from the photos with all the junk in the car - I initially thought it fold back against the seat - but it doesnt look like it would fold back onto the roof.

Post when you find out more.

(BTW - those rails look awesome)

My understanding that it will fold up on the roof, just the way it is shown in the photo on the right.

Thanks for the quick feedback Brett. I don't think I'll be pulling the trim off the car anytime soon emoticon Might be a job for the supplier.

I'm sure with our dog I could hang a sheet up there and it would be enough to put him off. While the opening is there he will dive in - but put a wet paper bag in his way and it would be all too much bother.

Been experimenting with an "extra" dog lead secured in the back that will hold him in place - give him some flexibility to move about without making it over the seat or choking himself getting halfway. Still working on the best position. At $2 it might be a better option.
