Tailgate Net

 

Things falling out of the cargo area when you open the tailgate after a rough ride on a backwoods road can be a problem. If you have about 20 feet of webbing left over from the Cargo Net project, you can put it to use by constructing a Tailgate net.

 

I used aluminum pop rivets and washers to secure 8 female webbing clips to the edges of the tailgate area. The short length of webbing keeps the clips horizontal and facing each other.

 

On the left side, the second clip from the top (left photo, bottom) is secured 3 inches behind the carpeting, and there is 3 inches of extra length with a triglide to enable the clip to be adjusted to allow the locking mechanism to protrude into the cargo area. The horizontal strap is NOT riveted to the left-most vertical strap in this area, in order to allow the webbing to wrap around the lock mechanism when the tailgate is closed.

 

The straps on the right side are fitted with triglides in order to allow tension adjustment (the horizontal strap at the back of the vertical webbing is NOT riveted to the vertical strap).

 

In order to keep my tools secure, I use a heavy canvas tool bag secured by a heavy duty Kryptonite Cable Bicycle Lock wrapped around the Roll Bar.

 

The tools in the high impact plastic case (under the canvas bag in the photo bottom, left) are inaccessible with the cable in place and the canvas tool bag on top.

 

Installing a cargo area net also allows you to secure the straps of shopping bags to the net with a carabiner (photo bottom, right) to keep contents from spilling out.

 

If you use the cargo area (with the rear seat folded up) to transport your pet, you can secure your other cargo between the net and the tailgate so that it doesn't end up flying forward in a sudden stop situation. If this is what you want to do, then extend the 5.5" length of the (left & right) ends, so that you can adjust the clips on the ends of the net so that the net extends into the cargo area in front of your cargo.

 

 

Diagram showing dimensions for DIY tailgate cargo net using reflective webbing.The diagram at the left gives measurements for constructing the Tailgate Cargo Net.

If you use the reflective webbing referenced in the text, you can mark out the rivet holes on the reflective portion of the webbing, and drill the holes with a high speed drill or Dremel Tool.

If you use standard webbing, you can punch rivet holes with a standard punch, or apply Super Glue to the spot, allow it to dry, and then drill the hole with a Dremel Tool.

Care must be taken when drilling the webbing. If the webbing is cheap, or not woven tight, your drill may jam, and you can be injured thereby.

Removable tailgate net with cargo area empty.

Right side of cargo net is adjustable with triglides. Rear part of strap attached to the male clip (behind vertical strap) is NOT riveted to the vertical strap. Triglide on the strap can be adjusted for net tension.

The strap next to the lock mechanism is 3" longer, secured 3" behind the carpet. The matching horizontal strap from the net is NOT riveted to the vertical strap to allow the lock mechanism to protrude into the cargo compartment without stretching the net.

Husky (16") canvas tool bag and Socket set in plastic case secured by heavy cable lock. Shopping bag secured to netting with carabiner.

The Tailgate Net (bottom of photo) and the Reflective Cargo Net (top of photo) with the tailgate open. Even if the Jeep is parked facing up a steep hill, contents of the cargo area are prevented from falling out.
