Safety net*

Updated 7/23/2018

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

The safety net is fitted into four mounting points.

Safety net

For reasons of safety, the safety net must always be fastened and anchored as described below.

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

  • Rear fitting - behind second seat row.
  • 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.

Installation

Warning

It is necessary to ensure that the upper securing points of the safety net are fitted correctly and that the puller-straps are hooked in properly.

Damaged safety nets must not be used.

Note

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

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

Hook one retaining hook of the net into the front or rear roof mounting with the anchoring strap locks turned towards you.

Hook the net's other retaining hook into the roof mounting on the opposite side - the telescopic spring-loaded retaining hooks facilitate alignment.

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

Rear fitting: With the net fitted in the rear roof mountings, hook the safety net's anchoring straps into the front floor eyes in the cargo area.

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

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.

Tension the safety net with the anchoring straps.

Important

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

Removing and storing

The safety net can be easily removed and folded up.

Reduce safety net tension by pressing the button in the anchoring strap lock and feeding out a little of the anchoring strap on each side.

Press in the catches and detach both of the anchoring strap's hooks.

Undo the upper attachments and release the net from the roof mountings.

Press the red button on the rod to enable folding and then roll up the net.
