The safety net is fitted into four mounting points.

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.

Attaching

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 snap hooks are hooked in properly.

Damaged nets must not be used.

Rear fitting

Fold out the safety net.

Hook the safety net's snap hooks into the front floor eyes in the cargo area. Make sure that the safety net's storage pockets are turned backwards.

Hook one of the net's retaining hooks into the rear roof mounting.

Hook the net's other retaining hook into the roof mounting on the opposite side.

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

Front fitting

Fold out the safety net.

Hook the safety net's snap hooks 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. Make sure that the safety net's storage pockets are turned backwards.

Pay attention to make sure that you do not press the seat/backrest hard against the net when the seat/backrest is moved back again - only adjust until the seat/backrest makes contact with the net.

Important

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

Hook one of the net's retaining hooks into the front roof mounting.

Hook the net's other retaining hook into the roof mounting on the opposite side.

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

Removal and storage

The safety net can be easily removed and folded up.

          

Press in the snap hooks' spring-loaded flaps and remove the snap hooks from the eyes.

Loosen the net's retaining hooks from the roof mountings.

Fold up the net.

The folded safety net can be stored under the cargo compartment floor.
