2011 Acura TSX Wagon: Nice Tie Downs
July 07, 2011
Hadn't noticed this tie down before in the TSX. It's hidden out of sight in the corner of the cargo bay just above the floor loops. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the hook is actually made of genuine metal. Yep, no chrome painted plastic here.
This might seem like a given for a hook that supposed to secure things, but it's becoming less and less common as manufacturers look to shave cost and weight at every turn. I also like the fact that it's a "T" hook as a loop isn't nearly as useful for hanging bags and such.
