Toyota Dog Guard fitting instructions / help

I've acquired an alleged genuine Toyota dog guard which was removed from a 3-door 2001 RAV by the previous owner about 10 years ago (so they've forgotten how it was fitted) and it's baffling me how to fit it into my 2001 3-door RAV.

I've worked out that you have to remove the back seats, and that the bottom of the guard clamps to the back seat retainer recesses, but I'm blowed if I can work out what the top of the guard should bolt to.

I've tried removing the rear grab handles, but the fixing points on the guard don't reach the available holes that are left as a result, nor are the screw holes for the grab handles large enough for the supplied bolts to fit into, even if the guard did reach them.

Has anyone got any clues? Or - better yet - a relevant installation guide? There's isn't one on the Toyota website that I can find.

Many thanks
Simon

My guess is there was another bracket the went to both grab handle holes with a nut welded on the back for the bracket attached to the dog guard.

You a re missing some pieces but you can try to make a bracket and attach it to that hole with a bolt. It should be fun.
