Luggage compartment Tiedown rings

The tiedowns in the rear compartment are not very solid - screwed into plastic with self tappers. I'd like something which can reliably tiedown fairly heavy stuff, like a fridge and an auxiliary battery.
Has anyone replaced the factory tiedowns with something more substantial? I'm looking for ideas!
Thanks,
Russell

Re: Luggage compartment Tiedown rings

If you remove the plastic you'll see they're actually screwed into metal (on my '14 anyway) although it's not a particularly beefy connection. I think they would work ok for a fridge however an automotive battery might be pushing it. I mounted my second battery in the wheel of the spare tire.
