I saw these hooks a couple of weeks ago...I'm still trying to figure out that they are used for.
The cargo net attaches to the 4 steel rings on the sides of the car...so it's not for that.

Wild stab in the dark - a way to hold the shoulder harnesses out of the way while carrying cargo? My van has some elastic for that.
Some of the specs around the net talk about "Cargo Area Tiedown Hooks".
 Bah, neither of those make any sense (I've been skimming the owner's manual).
They sound like vestigial appendages left over from the 2005 cargo shelf days.
Can someone post a pic?

Maybe LATCH anchors for child car seats?

Not latch anchors...the anchors are either in the seat, or on the back of the seat. These hooks are on the celing, back by the rear door, on either side. They fold flat to the ceiling. I guess they could be hooks for hangers...but if you hung clothes there, you would block the back window.

2010 For 18 months and I never noticed them since they blend into the ceiling molding.
They seem to hold a bar with the hook shape notch. At first I thought the cargo security shade would fit, but that attaches behind the rear seat.

I was in the Chevy dealer having a recall taken care of and asked a sales guy. They're clothes hangar hooks, nothing more. He says he seen a bar attached side to side, but it's not a Chevy accessory and it won't hold much weight. Using the bar will block your view in the rear view so I'd be inclined to leave it as is.

Thanks for asking. (I thought that tthey might be something more interesting than clothes hooks.)

In my first message, I point out that hangers will not stay on these "hooks", as they are wide, flat, and narrow - the hangers fall off. The bottom rail of the opening is too weak to hold any clothes if the hanger is put through the opening - it would break, and even if it held, it's too close to the sides of the car for a hanger to hang there. The unusual shape strongly suggest that it's for something else. My salesman said that he seemed to recall that Chevy once offered a clothes rod to extend from one of these "hooks" to the other, but he wasn't sure.

I use a hanger pole that attaches to both sides of Nox hanger hooks to hang clothes while traveling; the pole can be purchased at most auto part stores.
