Block Gap in Six Seater

Had my X for almost two months. Yesterday had cargo, groceries) slide forward between the middle seats and crash to the floor. What solutions have others found for leaving back row down and blocking that gap without being too unsightly?
I purchased an expandable cloth storage bin that has three compartments and I place it lengthwise across the back of the trunk so it blocks the open space. The bins are great for placing bags of groceries in so your bags don't roll around preventing items rolling around in the trunk.
One way I manage this issue is to lower the trunk floor to the lower level so it’s no longer flush with the 3rd row folded seats. This will block anything that rolls from being a projectile. In the older Model Xs (mine’s a 2017) there are hooks just underneath the 3rd row vents that can secure a cargo net as well - not sure if this is still present in newer models.
