Good Morning,
Has anyone figured out how to use the cargo net with the cargo liner installed? I dont think there is a way to use both at the same time... Has anyone else given this any thought...?

I do not want to add cut-out slots to the liner and not really keen on just using one or the other. Anyone have any ideas? solutions?

Hi there, what's the reason for using both at the same time? Just curious.. Thanks
I/we run the liner all of the time and when we finally got around to trying the net I did not want to have to pull the liner out to use the net, I thought that they should just work together...

Ditto for me - turns out not to be a big clearance issue ...
Roger, A question for you... Maybe I have missed something but the rear mount points are... (trouble finding the words) really down / below / under the liner. Do you just flap the liner up to secure the rear hooks?

Sorry, I really need some more coffee this AM....

Thanks in advance!!!!

You could make small slits in the liner to access the cargo net mounting buckles....

We could but that would not make my wife nor I very happy:(

I think that if it were designed a little better there would not be any interference, I really didn't want to go there I just wanted to see what others may be doing..:|

There is not need to make any cuts on the liner. Just push it down a bit. I will post a pic of mine tonight

I'd be afraid to cut into the liner as well, which goes for making adjustments to anything unless left with no other option after all possible options have been weighed out.

We run the liner always too, and I just snap the net kinda under and beside it - Leave it hooked on the back and stowed behind my bins. See Juan's pic or when my car gets back (bride is off with it for now) I can take a pic also. You are talking about the regular liner (about 1 inch on the sides) NOT the big one (about 4 inch sides) right ? ...

Roger, Thanks.
Yes, The regular liner. I was worried that the liner would be buggered up if bent for any length of time... and hey, While I have you here, How do you like those bins? (saw them in your garage pics) I have one on my wish list but I wanted to see it in person before spending the $60 to get one....

Thanks again for the help!!:)

I LOVE them - and when ordered with the car they were only $40. There's also a larger version that folds up in 2 different configurations - these don't - but these do fit edge to edge (long) just perfectly. I like having them in the car all the time, which usually keeps me from needing to use the net ;)

Mine do the same, although now looking at Juan's pics, I sorta agree with Joe's observation and concern. I never thought about it before, but could be tempted to carefully trim the liner a few mm. I'll look into it this weekend if I'm not stormin' the North Carlolina mountains for another run at some twisties ...

I only mentioned that because the Q5 version has "cutouts" to accommodate the eyelets for the cargo net hooks, see pic. It obviously wouldn't be ideal though.

I guess I just assumed the liner would be like the Q5's with those cutouts. Interesting. I'll be watching this thread to see if a clever solution to using both is devised since I don't yet have the liner but am considering it.

I bought the Weathertech liner and also had to push it down for the net too, about the same amount as Juan's pictures. I had the net out the other day to load some pavers and the liner snapped right back into its normal shape. But now I'm intrigued by these bins you speak of and off to investigate that.

That's what i was thinking as well.

Forums usually attract a lot of hands-on folks, so we should hopefully see something soon enough!
