Hi. Just curious if any of you guys have taken off your nets. I was going to remove mine and it seems the bolts are a strange design. Probably for a reason. The nets are the only thing that use these bolts. They kind of look like torx. Possibly something In between t30 and t40. Although none of my sets offer that. I tried to remove one and it started stripping. Some sort of special fastener I guess. Thanks for the help.

Mine came off 2 nights ago. The brackets were held on by Metric Allen screws. After I removed the nets, I put the brackets back on thinking that in the back by the box, I might bungie cord something back there and the extra bracket might be handy. Also I think they may have put "Lock Tight" on the threads as some were a bit tough to remove.

They work great for bungee tie offs.

I plan to leave all my nets in place. Don't want to lose a rug rat. I have way too much time and attachment to those:D

I chose to keep the nets on for the kids and grandkids. The driver side net is rolled up tight and out of the way.

Well I ended up getting them off. I only took the front nets off. Kids will not be driving. And me and my wife are pretty calm. I don't see us flipping it over. Plus is speed increases the seat belts will be on.

I removed all my nets right after getting my machine. Don't have little kids and can't see us using them. Just get dirty and in our way. I left all the hardware in place tho. The brackets have proven to be good for securing bungee cords, garage door opener, sun glass cases, etc.

I took the nets off the 1st day. But, driving through thick brush makes me wonder if I should put them back on for certain trails. Been whipped in the face a couple of times already. The screws were a strange size but I got something close and just barely got them out.

Anybody know the size and bit type to get the net brackets off? Nothing I have is the right size. It's kinda Torx and kinda not and in-between standard sizes.

Mine are off. They do make good bungee locations. Also good place to mount custom accessories. Ive seen a few on here. I'm using the front left and right corner under the roof for interior light mounts.

On my P5 I folded them longitudinally and using the existing fasteners affixed them to the B pillar. In this way on the job site easy to deploy and play time just fold and store.

Be sure to save the bolts. I took them off and then when I put the hard doors on, the instructions said I needed to re-use them. I got lucky and found them again even after eight months of being in my less than organized shop. lol

Took my nets off the first day, I left the screws and brackets, a couple days later I removed the doors. I like it a lot better without the doors but I'll probably put them back on for the winter.
