You know, sometimes it’s the simple hacks that get our attention. If you have a roof rack, and use it often to shuttle things around, adding these stow-away, front tie downs might be for you.
Most all cars will have a few bolts along the top of the fender that ties into a semi-rigid or structural part of the vehicle. [Andrew Morrow] used about 12 inches of nylon strap, added a hole to the both ends, and attached them to the fender bolts. With the hood closed, he now has a convenient tie down location for what ever he’s hauling around. We love that when not in use they simply can be stored beneath the hood. Hidden away, but not something you’ll forget to bring with you, or easily lost. Just make sure that they don’t come in contact with moving engine parts, or hot exhaust manifolds.
