I have a 2018 Accord Touring 1.5L. When I want to take my kayak somewhere, I fold down the rear seats, slide the kayak into the trunk, place a towel over the top of the kayak and then tie the trunk down. On prior Accords, there was a loop under the car near the center of the bumper that could be used for a rope to tie the trunk down. This is not there on the 2018 Accord. Any thoughts on how to best tie the trunk down to haul the kayak??

You may need to splurge on a roof rack in this case. I couldn't find a solution unless you want to weld on you own loop somehow.

Also came across this issue. I found a hook in my basement about the same width as the latch loop (bumper side). Keep the keys away from the trunk and press it into the trunk latch opening and it will lock around it.

That gives you something to attach at the top of the trunk. Now you need something to tie that to on the bottom. The bottom tie down spot is what its missing.
