Just wanted to share with all the xterra owners here .Easy way to secure cargo with bungee cords and spring nuts. These can be found at Golden Screws Ras Al Khor. 

Pictures are self explanatory

These can be used in any car which has these kind of rails in the cargo trunk.

You can use as many as you want to make it more secure and modular.

Very nice solution !

Unfortunately I don’t have these rails and I’m still searching for a proper solution...

Dear @Emmanuel, there is a hard plastic cover on the rails (as in pic below)which needs to be removed to get access.

I am not sure why your X doesn't have these as mine is basic version and has it . Frankly I was going bonkers with moving stuff in the trunk.  After fixing the hooks look tight and secure enough to hold items in place with 2 to 3 strong ropes /bungee. Will update how sturdy it is in desert after few drives for sure.

PC @Shamil with thanks

@Chaitanya D if these bungee cords fail, which will happen in few drives.

Go with spider net from ACE and use your same hooks to secure it.

Secure the Jack, in case of flip it will bounce all around and may hit someone on the head.

As Gaurav said above,

 

I have a big military bag with everything in the bag (multiple compartments, yes also the jack). I always secured it with bungie ropes (or how do you call these things) up to last week when I made a big jump.

I realised that it might be not strong enough if you start rolling or in worse case scenario a forward flip. Don't underestimate the g-forces that occurs during an accident. (Imagine your jack flying on to your head)

After this incident, I bought tie down straps and secure the bag firmly. Yes, it takes more time to secure, but we are talking about your life.

How many drives did the plastic container last? 

I used a similar setup for first newbie drive, which ended up container being shattered.
