For those of us that need to carry larger items like a snow blower or a lawn mower I find it really absurd that there are no trunk tie downs in any Tesla SUV vehicles. I really need this...anyone find a solution or have any suggestion?

True but since tie downs are not in any other Tesla model that is an assumption. Just curious what current owners use when they have to secure larger items in the trunk.

here's a video from Bjorn with some options for a partition wall for the X to prevent items from moving forward into the main seating area


Bjorn had another video showing how he attached cargo straps to secure things, but can't readily find it.

I believe that the problem Bjorn is addressing is specific to the 6 seat configuration of the model X with the opening between the 2nd row seats. 5 and 7 seat configurations of Model X don’t have this issue nor will Model Y.

Those are indeed tie downs!! I assume there are a matching set on the left side of the trunk area?
Yes they are on both the left and right. I just couldn’t see a good way to get both sides in one picture and still show it clearly.

I have the 6 seats variant and the tie-downs are present in the back of the third row fold-down seats and in the trunk

I was just sitting in the 3rd row of my X - something I don’t often do - and noticed another tie down on each side, higher up. Has a flippy cover so a bit hard to photograph, but here is an attempt.
