Attachment points

I don't see good attachment points for rope tiedowns under the front and rear bumpers of my 2014 GC Laredo, so I can secure my kayak. Any suggestions?

Re: Attachment points

I know this is an old thread any you probably found something. I took some old strap material, and folded it in half. I then took a heated nail and cauterized a hole at each end. I found two screws under the plastic covering the front grill and attached the strap ends to the screws. The strap stays in place under the hood when I am not using it. I pull it out and have a "V" shaped strap to attach the bow tie down. For the rear, I have a trailer hitch so I have a place.

I found some short loops made from webbing, tied a knot in one of them, big enough to hold it in place when I close the hood. Part of the loop extends out from under the hood. That's my front attachment point. I use a similar loop, tied in a girth hitch thru one of the cargo rings just inside the rear hatch, and the loop hangs out the rear when I close the hatch. That's the rear attachment point.
