Or got to home depot and buy the stuff they use when putting a rug on hardwood or another slick surface. It looks like a checkerboard design. Works real good and its pretty cheap.

Default idea

I used double sided tape on my old buick to keep the carpet in place. It worked really well. As for the holding the box in place... depending on your box shape you could use L brackets and screw them to the trunk floor but be careful of the gas tank and stuff like that. And as for the security thing. I know someone who lined the underneath side of their box with razor blades. Which if a person tried to steal your stuff they could sue for cruel and unusal punishment. And they would probably win. I don't know if ne of this stuff will work, but if it sounds like a good idea. Email me and tell me if you think that

They could sue? When they aren't even supposed to be doing that. Stupid legal system...

yep, they can. the law is pretty stupid on this IMO. Some people used to put razor blades along the sides of their radio too so if it got stolen they'd cut their hands all up when they try to pull it out. Most people stopped doing it though because the theives would sue and usually win.

That'* an easy one to win. B&E has it'* own complications, if you get a lawyer that knows their stuff you can easily counter sue for "extreme emotional distress". If you can convince a judge that you are absolutely fanatical about your car you can claim any damage to your vehicle is damage to yourself.

I see you got a cap. I was wanting one, since my lights and stuff will flicker when turned up, is it hard to install.
