Pardon my newbie-ness, but what is the purpose of these things? Perhaps to hang shopping bags so they won't roll around?

Thanks 8)

Thats what I use them for! :) If I don't have a ton of bags though. If I just have one or two, I'll use it for that purpose. I also hang my lunch bag from it on my way to work. I'm sure there are a ton of other creative things you can do with them as well! ;)

If you get the little pouch that Nissan offers (or one you can buy elsewhere) you can put your sunglasses, cell phone, etc. in the pouch and hang it from the hooks.

I don't have anything hanging from my hooks right now though.

I put a nice trash pouch on there I purchased at the local auto parts store. If you didn't already know there are 2 additional slots for them in the back seat area. I'll probably do the same thing there for the kids so I don't find wrappers or snot rags stuffed in my door handles. :no: Kids. No respect I tell ya! 8)

I discovered that my umbrella hangs from there (it has a little bungee loop on the end). Hurray! That item used to roll under the seat in my previous car.

I have saved the tiny store bags to use later as trash bags. I said in another post that I will make pouches out of after market carpet (bought at the local Wally World) sewn inside out.

remember the manual says like a maximum weight is like 2 pounds or less on that little hook.

I need to get hooks for my rear doors.

You are better off than those of us who bought them at MSRP! Here is your salvation: eBay item number: 230350009942

I bought a small black camera pouch with a carabiner on it. I put my iPod inside and hung it above the cup holders by the iPod cable insert. When someone looks inside they don't see the iPod and it's better then leaving the iPod in the cup holders.

Or you could just go to the DIY Ripples thread in the Interiors section.
After doing some pricing at a machine shop I went the route of the DIY. So I posted my results as the DIY post for Ripple Hooks. Unless I had a few hundred made at a shop I would be looking at something that I could not sell for less than $25 each.

I assume all cubes come standard with two ripple hooks in the front, and none in the back [only empty holes].
I had enough holes, and bungee's to do me for the front, so I moved the two hooks to the back. The back doors look more like they finished going through the assembly line now. As for the big keyhole shaped holes that were left in the front, I found some 1.5 inch sticky backed mirrors [$2 a pair], and they fit in the void just perfect. If I think of something later on to use the holes, or the ripple hooks for, then they should be easy enough to pull off.
I'm including a couple of pics to show what it looks like. If you use your imagination, they look like sight glasses, or even camera lenses. Either way it still looks better than empty holes.
By the way, I am a machinist. I work with mechanical, and electrical engineers. If anyone has any idea's, let me know, and I will see what I can do. Those ripple hook holes have endless possibilities. ;D
