Updated 7/23/2018

A safety net prevents loads from being thrown forward in the passenger compartment in the event of sudden braking.

The safety net that is fitted in four mounting points is available in two versions.

Safety net, version 1.

Safety net, version 1.

Safety net, version 2.

Safety net, version 2.

A safety net prevents loads or pets from being thrown forward in the passenger compartment in the event of sudden braking. For safety reasons, the safety net must always be correctly fastened and secured.

The net is made of a strong nylon fabric and can be secured two different locations in the car:

  • Rear fitting - Behind the rear seat backrest
  • Front fitting - Behind the front seat backrests.

Warning

Loads in the luggage compartment must be anchored well, and also using a correctly fitted safety net.

Attachment, version 1

Note

The easiest way to fit the safety net is via one of the rear doors.

Warning

It is necessary to ensure that the upper securing points of the safety net are fitted correctly and that the tensioning straps are secured properly.

Damaged nets must not be used.

Unfold the safety net and make sure that the split upper rod is locked in extended position.

Hook one end of the rod into the front or rear roof mounting with the anchoring strap locks turned towards you.

Hook the other end of the rod into the roof mounting on the opposite side - the telescopic spring-loaded retaining hooks facilitate alignment.

Take care to press forward the rod's retaining hooks for each respective roof mounting's front end position.

Front fitting: With the net fitted in the front roof mountings, hook the safety net's anchoring straps into the eyes on the rear of the seat slide rails - it is easier if the backrests are straightened and the seats are moved forward slightly.

If the seat/backrest is pressed hard backwards against the safety net then the net and/or its roof mountings could be damaged.

Tension the safety net with the anchoring straps.
