  • Who has a Cargo barrier with Family Pack

    Hi Folks,
    Just a quick question for those that have a VRX Family pack Wagon & chose to have a Cargo barrier fitted.

    Interested to know if the Genuine Mitsubishi item is the only one compatible with the side/curtain Airbags..? ( After a quick look on the Milford website, looks as though their barrier is not suitable for side/curtain airbags)

    Also, does anyone have a Barrier with the Perspex centre section that opens.

    Any ideas on alternatives that are Airbag compatible / General costs fitted also.

    Any feedback in general appreciated,

    Merry Christmas,

    Pug.

    I have a dealer fitted cargo barrier with the Family Pack, the only caution that I had was that the barrier can not be used in the forward position due to the side airbags.

    My barrier does not have the perspex in it, it is the standard cage. It might be worth chatting with the Milford guys, as the first dealer I spoke to told me that the cargo barrier was not available if I took the family pack.

    Cheers
    Mark

      I have the FP and Cargo barrier fitted. The genuine Mitsubishi item IS a Milford Barrier. Unlike all other barriers, it does not taper vertically after it goes above the head restraints. This means that you do lose some space, but it will not interfere with the airbags. I know that blackwidow have a barrier for the NS for use with their drawer system, but you would have to talk with them to ascertain that they have tested it to ensure there are no problems.

      If any dealer tries to tell you it is incompatible - they are talking rubbish. It just cannot be fitted in the forward position.

      Mitsubishi were good in that they designed the airbag deployment to allow for a barrier. On the Prado, the VX and Grande models are unable to take a barrier due to the airbag deployment which is absolutely stupid for a touring vehicle.

        Hi Folks,
        Thanks for the replies so far, I had an idea that Milford are behind the barrier for the Pajero, but it's confusing when they say on their site that the barrier to the general public is not compatible, maybe just a typo or the like.

        As for it only being able to be used in the rear most position, that's fine for what it's wanted for us. Will be interesting to see if it can be had with the perspex type centre though as that would be a bonus.

        One question i did'nt ask before though was how far back the rear seat can be reclined with it in place....again no biggie though.

        Any rough ideas on what The price was in the package to supply and fit..?

        Hope everyone has had a Great Christmas,
        thanks again,

        Pug.

          Hi, just a point on the perspex type barrier that I have on my NM Pajero. It suffers from bad (distracting) headlight reflections from oncoming and following vehicles. The perspex is also easily scuffed further reducing visibility. If I could get a barrier without the perspex I would go for it without a second thought.

            Which is what I thought until one day the rear door nearly closed with me in the rear. At least there's an escape route with the perspex.

              I'm amazed that it's legal to sell a car with third row seats, where they're too stingy have a door opening lever on the inside of the fifth door.

                  Hi,
                  Apparently Hayman Reece has a Cargo barrier that is compatabile with rear air bags. 4 screws for quick release, but not sure if verticle above rear seats- hence lost luggage space. Can't be used for two postion, just behind second seats. Cost about $500. Does any body advise this brand, or others, especially compared to Milford.
                  Thanks
