Default Canoe tie-down points on Passat?

Hello,

I recently bought a yakima rack for my 06 Passat so I can carry a canoe.
I didn't realize until after I installed the rack that there are no obvious tie down points in the front or rear.

I discovered the screw-in tow anchor points hidden on the passenger side of the front and rear bumpers. Has anyone had experience using these as tie-down points for canoes, kayaks, etc?

Any other ideas for properly securing a canoe in the front and rear?

Thanks!
