  • Securing rear drawers

    Hi all
    I'm wanting to build my own drawer system to put behind the rear seat of my SX. For those who have done or know about these things ... what's the best way to secure the drawers in the back? Should I follow the Drifta method and use turnbuckles onto the tie downs and the rear seat belt bolts or is there another way?

    cheers

    I have the Drifta drawers in my 120 and the turnbuckles secure the drawer system well. I can remove my drawer system in 10 minutes when required with the unwinding of the 2 turnbuckles, pull the drawers out and unscrew the 2 bolts in the back of the carcass that secure it to the floor. I have replaced these bolts with countersunk allen keyed bolts which make it easier to remove with a stubby battery drill I have.

      Thanks for that craigm. It looks like the Drifta 3door solution has turnbuckles onto the rear seatbelt bolts as well as the front tie downs. I might go down that path and make up some brackets that fit under the seatbelt bolt.
      cheers

        Some photo's of your fitout would help here too. I have a shorty I would like to put drawers into as well.

        Cheers,

            Sorry for the delay Suitcase. They look great.
            Marine ply 15mm?
            Does a fridge go on top to the tiedowns?

              Hey there shorty owners,
              I ended up removing my rear seats, filling in some VicRoads paperwork and having the vehicle registered as a 2 seater (sports car).
              I fitted some adventure kings 900mm draws and cable tied the sh#t out of them to the existing rear seat latches on the floor, then used turnbuckles on the 4 sides.
              So hopefully this will be pretty secure....
              Cheers, Shane.

                Fitted a false floor to my 120 then bolted drawers and slide to that. Used original tiedowns through ply floor and made clips to fit into tiedowns. post #8

                  Hi there, new to the forum, haven't quite figured out my way around here yet, trying to create a new feed, but, I have just bought my first Prado. 2018 GXL, very happy indeed.
                  It came with a lot of extras which I'm stoked about. Including ARB drawers - with the rear seats sitting loosely on top of these drawers, bolts and brackets also.
                  My question is, does anyone have an easy installation guide or removal guide for me to take them out, and install the rear seats, or the other way around?
                  I wouldn't mind the flexibility to quickly remove the drawers if I wish to use the rear seats.
                  I do appreciate any help given.
                  Cheers.

                  P.s I do apologize for the intrusion
