Re: Milford Safety Net I also support the safety net over the cargo barrier. The best aspect is that you can easily remove the net to fit large items in the back. Say, when you go the HN to buy a DVD player and the wife talks you into buying a 42" plasma. I saved $75 on delivery, so the net has almost paid for itself. I just unhooked the net, rolled it up and placed it behind the front seats. Easy. You couldn't do that with the barrier, now could you.
I also have one (soon to be two) car seats with the cargo net and as John mentioned, there is NO obstruction.

Re: Milford Safety Net Just adding another thanks to Dunoon (John) for his DIY and Pics. The Milford guide is vague to say the least, and Dunoons pics and guide aided greatly. I would like to add I highly recommend using coat hanger wire moulded to same shape as the slim wire provided. Gives you a bit more 'holding power' on the retaining bracket once its slipped inside the panel before tightening, and minimizes scares when the supplied wire bends and pulls through Once the bracket is tightened the coathanger wire pulls out easily enough.
Cheers again John, a picture tells a thousand words
Have to add I have just discovered a 18kg 9 year old blue heeler can fit down the side if he really wants....I bought it for the luggage and safety value with a bub so am happy, but I dont think it would hold back a determined dog!
