I am about to fit a draw system & cargo barrier to my GU Patrol and wondered if a half barrier did as good a job as a full barier in the event of a roll over. Also , if fitted behind 2nd row seats, rather than front row seats - is the driver as well protected? ( not that I'm planning a rollover!),

Go for the full barrier. When you move it forward you will find it invaluable for positively securing articles in the rear compartment. The full barrier, in my opinion, will give greater rigidity and therefore safety in the unfortunate event of a rollover.

Too right.

I am also sure many more vehicles get rear-ended than rolled over.
This is wher cargo barriers are most valuable.

There was a post on here not long ago regarding a severe injury to a driver being hit by his own tool box in such an event.

I won't even let my grandson bring hard toys in the car when we go to town as they can cause severe injury in the event of an accident.
Any loose hard object becomes a missile in an accident.

Gday mp, yer I,m putting a half one on top of my drawer system ,I can,t figure out how to put a full one[ because of the angle of the back seats??] Behind the FRONT seats would be the best, but, I think it would be like driving/riding in a ''paddy wagon'[not that I have done ether, lol] When away ,I only carry bags & soft stuff on the rear seats. If anyone out there with a GQ & outback _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx has a full one , behind the 2nd. row, let me know how the hell they did it ![ without leaving the seats out] cya...... Phil

According to Black Widow, half height barriers provide full protection and theirs complies to ADR specifications.
