Small Cargo Net

Referring to the small net usually attached in the front of the bed to keep things from rolling around (not the bed net that covers the whole bed).

Does anyone have the instructions that came with the net from Toyota. I have the net but no documentation nor hardware. I've secured it in the front of the bed in a makeshift manner but am wondering what the correct installation is.

I had one from another Toyota that I owned. I just strung it up using the little loops to stretch over the outboard nub of the moveable tiedown points.

Thanks,

I did attach mine in a makeshift manner and it's working - The two clips at the bottom are now attached to two loops of nylon cord I placed through the bed drain holes on either side (the knots under the bed retain the cord loops) and the top loops are attached to the bed cleats. However, I doubt that this is what Toyota had in mind and I was wondering what their prescribed method is. (I bought mine on eBay and saved a couple of bucks - but received the net without instructions nor any hardware.)

i got mine from the dealer, no instructions and no hardware either. I installed it on the front bed rail brackets like the previous posts described. I bought two more brackets for the front rail (6 brackets total now).

It is a handy addition to the truck. Does this count as a mod? :-)
