    Those are coat hooks but you can use them to hang whatever, keeping an eye on things that are too heavy though, haven’t been keen to test their strength...

    I have found a 25mm M8 bolt, washer and a matching eye nut means you can add a nice spot to clip things onto like my photo.

    I also have a prototype which adds an IKEA curtain behind the drivers seat as a way of shutting off the drivers seats if you are camping, I’ve sized the unit to fit into the forward coat hooks, they’re pretty handy

    Have you ever seen one of these cargo mesh units? or even a photo or part number for one?
