Rear cargo hooks 2009 2.4L Vibe Base

Post by BelleHarper »

New here. Just bought this nice 2009 Vibe and maybe, just maybe, someone can answer a question. The set of 4 higher plastic hooks in the cargo area...what are these for? Not the sturdy lower metal rings, the higher ones. They seem to have some specific function but I'm stumped. Thanks!

Hello and welcome! I have a 2009 base also. I use the hooks with a small diameter rope, maybe para cord that you can get at walmart, to keep things from rolling around in the rear area, sometimes to keep them standing up (like a 5 quart jug of oil.)

It's hard to get a knot to hold on that little hook, but a clove hitch with a small flexible rope will work if you pull it tight. See number 6 below.
