I have a 2010 Civic. If I have to transport stuff that sticks out of the trunk and won't allow it to close, how can I do this?

Normally, in other cars, you can take a bungee cord (which I have), connect it from some latch on the trunk door to something on the bottom.

I couldn't find anything suitable on the trunk door though for this; the actual closing mechanism is like an inverted V-shape, and there's nothing I can clasp the cord to.
