With the use of bungee cords, this net can easily be used to cover a large load or it can be rolled out just a little to cover one small item that might blow out the back of your truck.
Polly, I'm glad you asked that question. My husband used wood screws and screwed them through the net and into the pipes using his electric drill. He placed a washer between each screw head and the net. The screws are about 7 inches apart. I took a picture to post with this feedback.
We are still using the same net and it's been in the truck in all the weather for about 10 years and is still not showing signs of deterioration except for a little rust on the screws.
Litter blowing out of truck beds is a problem everywhere. Another way to secure the load is to put your loose items in a trash container and secure the top with a bungee cord. The lid will not blow off and the empty container will not blow out if the lid is secured with the bungee cord.
A bungee cord across the lid of your trash container is also a good way to keep animals from getting into your trash.
We do not have anything in the pipes to weight it down and it works just fine for our needs. This net has been in the back of our truck for probably 5 years now and has show no sign of deterioration. We use it all the time.
