    Best way to transport cargo with infant in car?

    Hi all, my friend is expecting in February and is a professional musician. He frequently needs to transport a drum kit in his car.
    Should he install a cargo net? Also does anyone have any experience with the Urbini Omni infant seat in a Honda CRV?

    Re: Best way to transport cargo with infant in car?

    The problem with many aftermarket cargo net/barrier type products for vehicles is that they really aren’t designed to withstand actual crash forces. My suggestion would be to transport the drums in cases, and to either use ratchet straps to secure them to the cargo tie-downs inside the vehicle or to have a cargo basket installed on the roof and transport them there. Good luck to your friend! My father in law is a musician and our children love going to his performances.
