Where are you meant to hang your coat or jacket up?

Post by 18ME » Tue Jun 02, 2015 9:36 am

I've looked and can't find a coat hook anywhere and the manual's index it does say coat hook but when you turn to the page (179) there's no mention at all. I would have thought there'd be one above the passenger seat belt bracket or within the grab handle, but nothing :?

Has anybody fixed anything to the bulkhead to hang things?

Had to have a look, but if you fit a grab handle from a touran you'll get a hook thats what I have in mine.

Thanks, I'll have a look but when I had a good look around the van again last night I did think if there was a hook within the grab handle that the jacket would block most of the window because the grab handle is positioned more towards the middle of the window rather than to the rear. I might see if I can improvise with something behind the passenger seat on the mesh part of the bulk head, maybe. I was looking at someones build last night and noticed a sunglass holder in place of the drivers grab handle which I thought was a great idea.

I just affixed a piece of wood to the bulkhead and screwed some hooks into that.

Sorted.

Good idea but just had a thought :idea: we sell these kitchen hooks in the shop which have strong sticky backs to them. Don't know if it would look a bit naff though and concerned that I wouldn't be able to get the sticky glue off the interior if I don't like it. I was thinking just above the passenger seat belt.

Got a hook bolted through each side with a large washer either side of the bulkhead. Will post a pic when I get chance

That is the logical place for a coat hook but there isn't one in the caddy, well mine anyway.

I'd be interested to see how you've done yours, cheers.

Simple cable tie through two of the holes at the top beside the side door. Then a bit of thin metal strip and curve the bottom, works a treat..

Aussie CrewVan I looked at today had what could only be a coat hook, above the seatbelts on the pillar on both passenger/driver sides
