Most cargo shades are simple to install. One side slips into a clip or a mount already in the vehicle. The other side has a compressed end that is pushed in. to shorten the rod and then mounts to another clip mount on the other side of the vehicle. Release the compressed end to lock into place. On occasion they do require drilling into the vehicle interior according to pre-designated locations or using a drilling template.
Care and Maintenance

Cargo Covers will not cause you any problems if installed properly and used with care
