No they are for holding the back seat up when it's folded and tumbled. You girth hitch it around the roll bar by the drivers seat belt. Fold the back seat up then slide the loop over the pin on the back seat. The raised end holds it on there and keeps the back seat standing up to increase storage.
Edit. Here's where it goes. I leave it there in place permanently. It stays put top down. I'd show it in action but there is a car seat you can't see on the other side I don't feel like taking out.
