    Does anyone know of a compact solution to prevent luggage in the 6-seater Model X from travelling forwards in a potential crash? I'm hoping for a net or something, not a rigid board like in this link https://www.amazon.co.uk/…/B000PJD…/ref=ox_sc_saved_title_5…. It's odd Tesla didn't provide a solution, or at least attachment points.

    Thanks. They look useful, but I’m looking for something that would prevent items flying forwards in case of an accident. There are some hard walls available, but these seem impractical when taking in and out frequently.

    Just a (cheap) suggestion, while on roadtrips. See video:
    (sorry, Dutch spoken only, but you get the point)

    That's a great solution!
    A little peeved I didn't think of that myself though...

    There's a couple of soft options available too.

    1. A trunk mat cover with a forward flap. I originally used this when I had my dogs, then I started using it all the time. I only recently stopped when I ordered some suction hooks to use as for a place to hang my suit jackets, which leads me to...

    2. Grab some suction hooks they attach to pretty much anything - glass, glossy seat backs, the wood trim. I have these things all over the place holding up various things like garbage bags, kids backpacks, and a cargo net.

    For the cargo net, I have suctions on the seat backs and I pull the cargo net across the opening. I'm using one I had from my old minivan, but a universal one would work. Most stretch out.

    Thanks Yinn, useful stuff. I like the idea of suction hooks, as opposed to drilling holes for screws. However I believe they wouldn’t hold if heavy items moved forwards quickly.

    I’ll check out the trunk mat option!
