Default What are your trunk storage solutions?

My wagon had the nice storage net and cargo tray which kept things relatively secure in the hatch area.

Now that I have a sedan, I am interested in how other owners have resolved keeping "stuff" secure in the trunk...

Members here always have such creative solutions.

You can add a cargo net to your sedan as well! When I saw that on scoobymods I knew that's what I needed and I really love it now.

I only keep my toolbox, tire iron, flashlight and the like in my trunk (I have a Sedan). I keep those secured from rolling around by sticking velcro to the bottom of them... like a few strips on the bottom of the tool box etc. That way it sticks to the carpet and doesn't roll around or slide into things.

Wow - that is nicely designed product. But I'll have to think about it at $75...

WRX-pilot, Thanks for sharing the velcro idea...

I've used the 'milk crate' type swuares in the back of my jeep. standar size seems to be a little bigger about 18" x 18" but there are narrower ones also.

Okay - I ordered the net for my STi. I'll post again on the installation and looks.

Thanks again for the link.

I'm going to have to get me one of those nets too.

For storage of my air compressor, jumper cables, tools, etc I have one of those nylon trunk storage bags/organizers from Target or somewhere that come with velcro strips (the hard plastic part) attached to the bottom that sticks great to the fabric of the trunk floor covering.

Also, a couple of times I opened my trunk to find the flimsy trunk floor covering all bunched up with things everywhere, so strips of velcro between the covering and floor fixed that.

Walmart (and most other stores) carry what looks like a a rubberized mesh that provides a really cheap solution!

Look where they keep the shelf liner stuff at. You'll see this stuff in rolls.. works great!!

OK...I have a cargo net already from a previous car....where can I get the nifty hooks to hold the net up without buying the whole kit from Subaru?

In my WRX, I bought one of those generic elastic cargo nets from Autozone. It just happened to fit the trunk perfectly. I attached the mounts directly to the grey trunk liner at the rear of the trunk) along the wall just inside the trunk opening. I made sure to use large washers on the backside of the liner do ensure the screws didn't pull through and never had a problem. Maybe cost me $20.

Here's my solution. Subaru cargo net at the back, then a very stretchy generic net that clips into d-rings and partitions off the back foot or so of the trunk. Finally, a quilted moving blanket is always useful for padding or wedging smaller items so they don't roll around.

If you're referring to the OEM net, it comes with hardware.

The aftermarket net I used already has the plastic hooks attached. I used some generic stainless D rings from Home Depot. Be careful where you drill of course, and dab a bit of primer on the holes to keep them from rusting.
