Also empty on mine.

That looks like it would be a good spot to keep a locking lug nut key

I'm curious what the tool on the right is. I noticed it for the first time the other day when I was changing a flat, and I couldn't figure out what to do with that one. :unsure:

Inside the rear hatch in one of the compartments I see 2 tools here and one empty space.on the left. Am I missing a tool?
Thank you!
I have most or almost all of the factory installable options.
Curious if anyone has anything there.
It's too small for the hex key w/handle that comes with the crossbars.

Nothing in my Limited ... and the manual only shows those two tools in that area.

It's the rear towing hook, screws into your rear bumper.
Haha. Mine is still in there because I forgot about it after installing the tow hitch. No need for it now!

Yes, Subaru tends to provide a "screw in" recovery hook, but once they OEM hitch receiver is installed, the mounting point is not there anymore. A 2" receiver Shackle is what many of us carry for the purpose.

Nothing there in a US Touring in either MY19 or MY21.

Can put the bumper cover hiding the recovery point there during use.
Thank you at least that sounds plausible!

My '14 Outback had an obviously crafted cubby with some sort of clip under the center console lid. Never was able to figure out / find out what that was for. It was way too big and awkward location for garage door opener, plus I had Homelink, and it was too short for a phone.

I like the idea of putting a small flashlight there, so I think I'll find one that fits and store it there from now on.
