Luggage carrier

GENERAL INFORMATION


Car loading

In interests of preservation of good dynamics of the car watch uniform distribution of cargo.

Heavy subjects place as it is possible further ahead, i.e. closely to backs of back seats or closely to forward seats (address to an illustration) at put backs. Cargo should not support the upper edge of backs of seats.

Pressure in tires should correspond to car loading – address to a pressure sticker in tires on a cover of the refueling hatch.

At all do not exceed full admissible weight and axial loading. Their admissible values are given in car documents.
ATTENTION

Remember that in transit heavy subjects dynamic qualities of the car change because of shift of the center of gravity.

Therefore the mode and speed of movement respectively should get out.
Cargo place whenever possible in a luggage carrier and with the lifted and latched backs.
By means of safety сетки* or inelastic tension tapes fix cargo for lifting loops. It reaches the greatest degree of safety.
In order to avoid hit of exhaust gases to salon never move with completely closed, and furthermore with an open door of a luggage carrier!



Lifting loops


In a luggage compartment four lifting loops (arrows) are located.

By means of these loops it is possible to fix cargo.

Safety сетка*

The safety grid is in a luggage carrier pocket. By means of a grid it is possible to fix luggage carrier cargo reliably.
Enter grid hooks into lifting loops.

After use combine a grid and lay it in a pocket.


For installation and fixing of forward hooks enter hooks parallel to a loop, and then turn them – address to an illustration.


Straighten in a luggage carrier a safety grid. Thus the inscription of "TORAHS" should indicate up, and an arrow in the movement direction. The free end of a lifting belt should indicate in the direction of a door of a luggage carrier.

Combine up both regulators and weaken lifting belts – address to an illustration.

Place cargo that it whenever possible completely was under a grid.

Pull back lifting belts and achieve their hard tension.

Cargo holding grid

This grid can be used only for fastening of easy cargo.


The grid interferes with shift of cargo of a luggage carrier. For fastening of cargo pass hooks in lifting loops.

Bed curtains of a luggage compartment

The bed curtains of a luggage compartment can be used for clothes subjects.
ATTENTION

Do not put on bed curtains of a luggage compartment heavy, firm subjects. At sharp braking they represent danger to passengers.



Besides, subjects rubbing about back glass can damage system of its electroheating.

When opening a door of a luggage carrier the bed curtains of a luggage compartment at the same time rise.

In need of transportation of bulky cargoes the bed curtains can be removed.

Bed curtains removal


In bed curtains junctions in a door of a luggage carrier liberate lock loops (1).

Pull bed curtains (3) back and take it from holders (2) – shooters.

For installation of bed curtains enter it forward in lateral holders and fix lock loops on a luggage carrier door.
