    How to keep box from sliding?

    Right now my box isn't carpeted which I believe is the majority of the problem. I'm wondering what I could use to keep the box from moving around in the trunk. Right now I have a board wedged up between that and the end of the trunk. Do those "feet" things work well at all? I don't really want to bolt it down since that would be one more thing I'd have to drill on my box.

    It really is best to bolt it down....imagine your box becoming a projectile in the event of an accident...

    Re: How to keep box from sliding?

    i used industrial velcro when i had an uncarpeted box, sometimes it was hard to get it un-velcro'd from the carpet.

    never moved an inch, box was huge as well 6 cubes net with 2 l7's

    Re: How to keep box from sliding?

    Yea, I understand that, but it's sealed off by the trunk. Plus, it wouldn't make it through the wall even if it were slung hard enough to break through the seat: the box is too large to fit. I was looking at those rubber feet. I dunno, I might just go ahead and screw it down, I just didn't want to because I would have to unscrew it everytime I take it out, which is a couple times a month.

    aside from the industrial velcro

    i found the clear plastic spiked matts u put under your computer chairs so they can roll on the carpet work well... assuming your trunk is carpeted.

    Seems like a good idea, but how did you secure the mat to the box. Seems like if the two weren't somehow tied together very strong, the box would slide all over the mat?

    Re: How to keep box from sliding?

    I've found the stuff that's sold at Lowe's and Home Depot as toolbox lining, and at kitchen-type places as cabinet lining, works really well underneath boxes to stop them from shifting. Hard to describe it...comes in a bunch of colors, made up of a bunch of cells of sticky rubber/foam...

    X2... home depot sells adhesive backed rubbery foam strips that work awesome as well.
