I am hoping this has already been addressed. I am looking for a solution for how to keep stuff from flying around in the trunk when going around a corner. I generally have a laptop, bag of books, ice scraper etc. I have to really be mindful of corners currently (which is no fun at all).
Anyone have a method to secure stuff that is fast and easy?

Ya. I even got a price for a custom harness with LOTS of velcro. But b4 I went that route thought I would ask to see if anyone already had a solution.

Ice scraper goes in the glove box.
Put the books on the floor behind the front seats so they only move in between the back of the front seat and the back seat.
Learn how to "wedge" large objects.

VW's have velcro L's that I use. My sister gave them to me after she got rid of her Bug.

EvilGenius >> I wanted to avoid that only because it tore up the seats in the last car. Granted it took a long time, but these are leather so don't want to go that route.

Hillyard >> Yes! Looked at those. They are available from Ford for the hatch. The only issue I had with them would be having to remove them when the wife wanted to go grocery shopping. So kind of a pain in the butt.
I was thinking of this. Sewing velcro to one side of the laptop and bag, with the 'scratchy' side attached (somehow) to the trunk liner. The problem I predict, will be that when I grab the items, the trunk liner will want to come with it. So it's not a very good solution either.
Thanks for the input.
