2) Toss the cargo net over your jeep and begin fastening the 3 straps around the top main sports bar. Don’t tighten fully, this keeps the net from falling off while you install it. (Pic. 2)

3) Then, starting on the driver’s side, begin attaching the plastic channel of the net into the retaining channel next to the door opening (Pic. 3)

6) Now, fasten the 2 side straps on either side of your vehicle along the side of the sports bar. If you have door surrounds on, just tuck the buckle under. (Pic. 7) Again, don’t tighten just yet, just enough to keep the net in place.
