    Today I used my Harbor Freight hold down net, and it worked great. It was a tangled mess and now that it was spread out I would like to store it. Does anyone have any ideas about storing it so it is not so tangled?

    yes I have the answer! you will need to remove all of the plastic hooks from the net and then it will be more manageable to store, I have a Harbor freight net and that drove me crazy too. I think I found that answer perusing thru some youtube videos associated with the net. I take all the hooks and attach them all to one corner till I need to use it again

    As many as my wallet will allow
    wrap it around a 2x4.

    Replace hooks with carabiners. They won't snag in the netting. Get real ones not the key chain type.

    Got tired of all the tangles, so went with the OEM cargo net.

    Thanks for all the above suggestions. Will grab the old nets and try them.
