They're called rod socks or rod gloves. They're real nice for basic protection of the rod and to keep the rod guides from catching on everything. I bought mine moons ago, not sure of the brand but they're the same idea as these from Rod Glove.

I originally had commend hooks mounted on the columns, but I have upgraded to this. The rods won't fall out over bumps...

plain awesome.... loving the hump cover action and I want a club like that! Although, probably unnecessary for the small trout we tend to catch in the Northeast.

@ZobiWan thanks! The cover I found on sale at a local hardware store. I'm catching red (sockeye) salmon up here in Alaska, so I need something a little more beefy..you should make a trout version!

I dabbled with the ideas here and buying a roof rack rod holder for a long time. Then a few months ago I found this >>

Rigged Fly Rod Cases & Portable Rod Carriers | Quik-Cast

Haven't looked back. Fits anywhere in the X and makes it really easy to hike or bike to more secluded spots with the rod broken down still.

I use the same storage setup as @Longboardr works like a charm. I use two small bungies to hold my reels from moving side to side towards the window

I use bungies too but i'm breaking down 12 foot surf spinning rods and 6500 Penn............I get too much "bouncing" on the ceiling due to the weight of the reels.
