For other stuff, I use my boots as stops the way Ultramaroon uses those things he linked above. I have the OEM Subaru trunk liner, and my boot soles are usually pretty good about staying put as long as I don't get too far sideways.
It don't damage nuffin?

Can't see what's bending in there. I can bend metal parts of this car with my bare hands. I wouldn't trust those soft plastic interior panels or even the metal behind them.

Sure you can bend a lightweight sportscars metal innards but can you bend a spoon?

Now you got me wondering, I'm going to check what that thing is pushing against.

I checked and it's against the those two upper clips that are in some metal panel behind the carpet. It's not ratcheted to where you could hang from it(it will crank down pretty tight though) but it's just enough to grab where it can't be moved by pushing and pulling it. More than enough to keep something from moving around back there.

Picture one that doubles as a rear shock tower brace. Make it with a quick release mechanism. You could sell tens of them.

I actually thought about doing exactly that but the bar is crossing paths of my sub box.

I picked up one of these from Costco, came with thermal lined shopping bags as well.

All folds down to sit flat, it does sit in the garage till needed though, the only bulky item in my boot is a first aid kit, which fits in my full sized spare under the boot liner.

Cost me about $25, well worth the small outlay.

Good idea. Just put little hooks on the ends of the shock tower brace to hook the net onto -

I used to use two bungee cords from the rear child seat locks running behind into the trunk, crossing over and connected to the roof of the trunk. Its usefulness was so-so.

Best I've done was pack the trunk with pillows from my couch when I transport a 3-ton jack and tools.

Right? You could make all kinds of adjustable collars or partitions.




...or you could just close the trunk on the bag handles.

i don't have a picture, but i have a cargo net i acquired decades ago from somewhere (it was either an rv surplus store, or a used-car clean-out at a dealer) mounted front-to-back on the drivers side, one hook hooks onto the front of the trunk mat, another to the seat frame up top, and then the rear 2 hooks, i drilled holes in the plastic trunk sill plate, and the upper pop clip tab in the center of the trunk opening.

it keeps my first-aid kit, a few towels, and my emergency tool set from moving around. and leaves enough space i can still use the trunk.

Well, I don't know how many people ol @extrashaky is grocery shopping for, but that wouldn't work for me. The width of the trunk lid for holding bags of groceries for mrs humfrz and myself would be OK, but the rest of the trunk is full of provisions for the three granddaughters -

It's just me, so it's not a big deal to lay the bags across the floor from left to right and shut the lid. Occasionally I'll use a bulk pack of paper towels and/or toilet paper as a backstop to keep things from swinging from side to side.

But our cars don't really have a giant trunk. If you're shopping for five, I would think you would pretty quickly fill up all the trunk floor space so that the groceries would simply pack themselves into a secure position.
