Important safety notes

WARNING
Distribute the load on the cargo tie down rings evenly.

Otherwise, vehicle occupants could be injured by objects being thrown around if you: Х brake sharply Х change direction suddenly Х are involved in an accident

Please observe the loading guidelines.

Observe the following notes on securing loads:
Х secure the load using the cargo tie-down rings.

Х do not use elastic straps or nets to secure a load, as these are only intended as an anti-slip protection for light loads.

Х do not route tie-downs across sharp edges or corners.

Х pad sharp edges for protection.

Х only use tie downs that have been checked in accordance with applicable standards, e.g. lashing nets or lashing straps.

Х fill the spaces between the load and the cargo compartment walls and the wheel mountings in a form-locking way. Only use dimensionally stable transportation aids for this, such as chocks, wooden fixings or padding.
