Trunk Hooks!

Trunk Hooks!

Fantastic idea!


Anyone know of any other options? It says it's a M6 bolt...

Yeah, after seeing friends and family 3D print things for their cars, I'm not convinced that that will be strong enough to hold a bag of groceries after being heated up on the next sunny day.

Just go to home depot and get some supplies and rig your own.

I've seen some pictures of people using hooks with magnet at the other end. You can get them in the strength you want. I've seen some that can hold 65lbs.
I haven't tested yet but I hope the trunk is steel.

Anyone with some working methods, please chime in!

Just use the built-in ones in the frunk?

Look on Etsy for the hooks. Price is $9.

$20 meh!

Looks to be 3D printed as well. Maybe it is Nylon or a better material than PLA.

Yeah, I do not have faith in 3D printed, at least not for so much...

I have even less faith since their "photo" of the product in the car is clearly photoshopped. In the close-up you can see there isn't even a screw in the mounting hole. Who knows if they even tested it in a real car.

Don't waste your money on 3d printed pieces. They will get warm in the summer and fall apart with a heavy enough bag.

I used to have a Jetta that had a similar hook to this in the trunk - Really liked them because they folded out of the way when not in use.

If you're feeling adventurous then a couple of ~6mm holes should let you install these.

Here's a hook install someone did. I have not done it yet myself, but intend to.

Not when I print them. ABS with an acetone bath to bond the external striations together. Although, if you hang a bag of cement on them, sure they'll break.

I'm the one who published this hook on Thingiverse:

There are 2 versions. One threads directly onto the M6 bolt that hangs down from the roof of the trunk. The other needs an M6 nut to thread onto the existing bolt.

If you buy a printed version from someone or if you print it yourself, make sure its made with ABS and not PLA. PLA will get soft and warp in warm weather. ABS is stronger and will not warp.

The 3D print items shown, seems to be printed in low quality.. If its printed in high quality and 100% filled is should hold up.. Ask how much fill was done to the 3D printed part.
