"CARGO DIVIDER + owners" You like it?

Dealer tells me my smart ETA is September 24 so I'm thinking about adding a Cargo Divider +, the one that also has a net so I can pack more stuff in the back.
I searched the forum about this option but didn't find much feedback.
I wonder how you feel about it in respect to practicality in daily use and it's quality.
My concern is when the net is anchored or up than it may be a pain to put things in the back because I guess you would need to get out of the car and open the hatch, thats ok with me.
Is it practical to leave the net down until it's needed?
Is the net permanently attached to the lower portion or is it removable.

Gus

Its removable, it is a hassle that you can't reach back and put stuff back there when its up. I got the rear cover, it goes about half way up the seats, I rarely stack stuff higher than that, but when I do, its that large pack of toilet paper from Costco. The seats themselves seem to keep most stuff from flying forward. But having either the rear cover, or the net helps keep stuff from falling under the seats.

Also the regular divider is $83 less so that's another consideration.

Can you order directly from smart instead of getting overcharged at MB?

Number 11 in the picture is what most people get. I have it and it is great. I had the car for a month without it and it was tough keeping things from rolling off the ledge and fall behind the seats.

best thing since sliced bread!

we got the regular cargo cover and a boot tray, which is about the same price as the net cargo divider - money better spent imho. The divider securely fastens at the bottom to the carpet via velcro, and the boot tray offers even more stability in preventing things sliding forward thru the divider.

Very happy with the arrangement - it is the finishing touch on the cargo area!

of course, if you really intend to load up the cargo area towards the ceiling, I can see how the net divider might be a necessity.
