I was considering looking into that but it sounds like it would not make a difference, and it wouldn't be any stronger. I don't ever plan on anything super heavy needing to be stopped by the net so maybe it is a moot point
Makes a difference from a looks/function perspective, but you're not going to gain any strength, it's just a little screw in there. If you were fabbing something to mate to the seat belts that would be a different story. I'm using some little angle brackets from the Depot for my ghetto-net.
Mine gets the job done, but I'm definitely considering one of the nicer ones that Eddie sells for the future.
edit: and no, my DS handle isn't missing, it's right where it belongs (above the driver's door!)
