  • Installing a cargo Barrier

    Hi
    New forum looks good.
    I have at last got myself a cargo barrier - only issue is there were no instructions on how best to install.

    It probably not too difficult - however i want to get it right - does any one have some instructions - aftermarket or MMA original . I have a an NP model.

    Hope you can help

    my brothers NM cargo barrier and my home made one both pick up on the rear seat handles, useing the orriginal screws, or in my case easier to remove bolts. The bottom picks up on the tie down points. thats the extent of my knowledge, enjoy

      I have copy of Milford fitting instructions. File is 1.6mb so can't post it here but if you wish to pm with your email address , I can send it.
      For mine I had to buy fitting kit which was $60 from TJM then had it fitted by a guy nominated by TJM. - TJM will only fit new barriers so I was told.

        Just dropped you a pm - look foward to the instruction manual.

        I was looking at the possible location - noting you have a nm/np model and was wondering why the special bolts - could use the bolts which hold the rear grap handles mounted near/on the roof lining??

          Do not use the seat handle screws - they are not strong enough to allow the cargo barrier to do what it needs to do in an emergency.

          The concertina sections in the arms are not there for decoration - they're designed to pull straight and absorb some of the energy from all your luggage trying to join the passengers in the front of the car. That should give you some idea of the forces involved in an accident. The grab handle screws are not that strong, and the cargo barrier will simply rip them out and come forward with all your luggage.

          Proper mounting points are threaded plates inserted into the body of the car and screwed in place. The bolts are about M10 in size, so they won't shear in a hurry. I've used the tie down bolts for my bottom arms, because I wasn't happy with the genuine Milford arrangement.

          If you're not going to mount your cargo barrier properly it's cheaper to install a net.

            Robsrock,

            Largish email sent re fitting. Mine was an original Milford/Mitsi barrier with the clear perspex rearward opening port hole. It came with the two lower brackets and one top one. I had to fabricate another top one. To fit appeared not that hard but it needed a certain size hole (22mm) I didn't have that large a metal cutting bit. To buy one from Bunnings was about $40ish so I had it fitted for $60.
            I suppose you could bend/make upper brackets to fix to rear grab handles if enough strength.

              Looking at the instructions and considering the load factors possible -i will go with the fiiting kit - which i will need to obtain from milford stockist.

              I look at the weight i carry when we ventuire out for weekends - fridge - toolkits - tents ,food - 110kg +++ thats a lot of stuff .

              thanks for all your advice and information - very helpful all round.
