I have a '98 Mustang, and I can't, for the life of me, figure out a reasonable / safe way to secure my box. Right underneath the trunk is the gas tank... so I can't screw down.


So, how do you guys secure your boxes?

Once I carpet my box's they don't slide around or anything, unless your looking for more of a "anti-theft" device than a way to bolt it down.

Secure so it doesn't slide around: Velcro/carpet the bottom if not done
Anti-theft: Put an eye bolt in the back of the box, and run a chain/cable through it and to a seatbelt bolt or something, and then loctite the crap outta it

I never thought of that. My box isn't carpeted... Do you think I can just velcro the bottom of the box and where I want it to stay on my carpet in my trunk?

I had a smaller box in my trunk at one point, and from day one I carpeted it, never once did it slide around or anything. When I built my current box, it took me a few days to carpet it, and it was sliding all around when it wasn't, once I carpeted it (being about 6 months ago), I haven't had it slide since.

You can get a roll of 36"x? (wanna say 30") of carpet at wally world for $8, exactly enough to do my box

Well, my box is already in my car, and it's so **** hard to get out. I literally struggled for at least 45 minutes last time I put it in... I've done it maybe 3 times? And every single time I wonder how I did it, and swear never to do it again. If I can just flip it and put Velcro on it, I'd be happy with that.

I guess it might work, not sure how good it would stick to the trunk carpet though
