How to keep car stuff in place

Whatever kind of driver you are, whether you drive a hot-red racing number or a conservative beige four-door, we’ll bet you’ve got stuff in your car that goes “clunk” when you stop, start, or turn a corner.

Besides being annoying, things slide out of reach, disappear under seats, and bang around in your trunk. It’s probably wearing out your carpeting, too.

To keep things in place, use pieces of soft rubber mesh, the kind used to line shelves and drawers and to keep area rugs from sliding around. You’ll find it can also provide good anti-slip traction for all sorts of items in your car.

A small piece on the dash or console keeps cell phones, sunglasses, and toll road change close at hand. Larger pieces in your trunk, on the back shelf, or on the floor mats keep packages, groceries, or your other stuff in place.
