Homemade Rear cargo divider

Why did LR not make a net cargo divider, I have got a travall metal divider but it's a lot of hassle to take in and out ad hoc when I need the two rear seats, also if I'm out and the kids need 2 mates to jump in they can't as there is no where to put the divider......so I have made my own net one Very Happy
Its ok, doesn't quite reach the sides, 80% happy with it.

what size would be better for you ? I've 3 different ones and might be able to point you at a source for a slightly wider one.

This is 100cm x 60cm but my issue was fixing it.
I could stretch this more to the sides but nowhere to attach.

have you made a net divider yourself

not yet !

I kept buying different ones for SWMBOs Antara after trying stitching a couple together and being told it looked c Censored p.

stiff black tube might make the top easier to keep at or near the roof ?

One of the primary purposes of the metal cargo divider is to stop the cargo flying through the motor under heavy braking or in a collision. While this looks pretty and is probably better than nothing ..it isn't going to prevent things from entering the main cabin.

true its not as good but I really only have fairly light stuff back there, on camping trips when I load it up the metal one will go in.

I'm just trying to find a solution to having the flexibility of using the 7 seats and having a cargo barrier when I'm only using 5.

Any other ideas Thumbs Up Very Happy

It's a balance of requirements for sure ... as long as the limitations are anticipated Smile

for sure you're right Thumbs Up

Just wish there was a LR option that I could have and keep the option of using rear seats

hi


just an idea Whistle , but have used some clear perspex before now, ( alas not in my current landy ) used cardboard to make a pattern , then after cutting the perspex to shape i’ve fixed a piano hinge so i could fold it up out of the way when not in use

don’t know if fitting a piano hinge horizontally , so that u could fold the top half down when u wish to use the back seats or have all of them folded down , or which ever arrangement is best

i also drilled a few small holes in the perspex so that it didn’t bend when i closed the door

will get my coat Laughing

hi crip10

would it work with the perspex folded in half either placed behind the back of the middle seat or tucked down the side with the rear seats up Whistle

shame there wasn’t a way of utilising the rear handles as a fixing point , so a sheet could be hinged up onto the headlining , then released down when the rear seats weren’t in use

hope u find something that suits ur requirements Thumbs Up

Can you do anything with the load net the comes with the discovery? I use it on the cargo barrier so the kids have somewhere to stash all the coats you may be able to make it reach across.
