Observe the following notes on securing loads:

 - secure the load using the cargo tie down rings.

 - do not use elastic straps or nets to secure a load, as these are only intended as an anti-slip protection for light loads.

 - do not route tie downs across sharp edges or corners.

 - pad sharp edges for protection.

There are six cargo tie down rings in the trunk/cargo compartment.
