If you are tired of having stuff fall out of your UTV when you are tearing up the trails, a Corona, Calif. company may have a solution.

Pro Armor has introduced a new side net system (SNS) for the Yamaha Rhino 450 and 660 (2004-07) side-by-side vehicles.

The system, which uses high-strength nets to completely enclose the side of the Rhino, is designed to keep all belongings in the vehicle. Beyond its functionality, the SNS also makes the Rhino look like itís ready to race.

The nets are made of heavy duty nylon and are triple stitched to increase strength. They are protected from direct sunlight by a UV coating and Pro Armor says they will last for many years of continued outdoor use.

The SNS incorporates a roll cage brace that the company says will strengthen the stock roll cage because it links the front and rear of the cage together. According to Pro Armor, this also helps reduce some chassis flex and improves handling.

The netting is opened and closed with a seat belt latch. The system costs US$299.95.

For an additional US$149.95 a lower side guard is available. This bolts directly to the bottom of the Rhino roll cage with self-tapping screws. Pro Armor claims this provides improved protection and is a place for the bottom of the SNS to attach.
