1. What is the purpose of a trunk hook?
Its main purpose is to hook grocery bags and prevent them from sliding or toppling around the trunk while you’re driving. If you permanently attach a bag to it, it can change the way you use your trunk.
While the bags are hanging from the hook, there’s going to be some movement. But there’s no risk of spilling your groceries all over your trunk unless you’re doing some really hard driving.
Another benefit of the trunk hook is added safety. The trunk hook covers the exposed bolt and prevents you from injuring the back of your head when getting items deep from the trunk.
We consider the hook a must-have accessory for any Model 3 owner due to its low cost, and straightforward installation.
2. Does the Model 3 come with any trunk hooks from the factory?
No, Tesla didn’t include any trunk bag hooks from the factory. This is the only way to easily equip your rear trunk with a hook.
3. Do these hooks work with the Model Y?
No, the hooks featured in this article are entirely incompatible with the Model Y. Although the Model 3 and the Model Y are very similar vehicles, the latter features a bigger trunk with a different design.
Being able to hang grocery bags onto hooks is very convenient. You don’t need to stick them in the corner of the trunk, then find something that might support the bags on your way home and avoid potential breakage or spillage.
Having a bag dedicated to the hook can change the way you utilize your trunk, and reduce annoyances such as hearing items rolling around in the trunk. No need to chase the bag contents all over the trunk.
This is an accessory you’ll love as soon as you install it, rest assured. We recommend the OzniumX Aluminum Hook due to its strong structure long arms.
