Default 2004 Vue Roof Rack - Cleats?

Hey fellas! Its been a while since I've posted but I have a quick question and hopefully I can get some good advice. I recently installed the roof rack cross bars on my 04 Vue. They are the same bars that sold at the dealer (the instructions are terrible btw). I installed them to use with a roof-top cargo bag. I've used this cargo bag on the roof of my old Explorer attaching it to the 2 cross bars similar to the way I will attach it to my Vue. However, my Explorer had movable eye hook attachments on the side rail so I could tie across as well. The Vue does not. I've searched and there were no accessories I can find specifically for the Vue so I started thinking I could screw in some nylon boat deck cleats into the side rail in order to secure the bag on the sides as well. I also found some Highland fold away cleats at AutoZone I think might work.

Has anyone done something like this? I would appreciate all suggestions and if you have pictures, part numbers, etc. that would be most helpful.

I picked a set of small nylon cleats at the local West Marine, screwed them into the side rail and was good to go. They worked like a charm and are small enough not to be seen.
