Easiest way to prevent large stuff from sliding around trunk?

    My main trunk area is generally empty except for my wife's wheel chair. The issues is the wheel chair slides around the trunk when I accelerate and worse, when I decelerate it slides into the rear seats.

    Has anyone come up with a solution for this?

    Do the trunk liners provide enough additional friction that this issue would be reduced? (I haven't noticed the issue in other vehicles we've used w/ this same wheelchair. but the model 3 trunk is by far the cleanest).

    Are their velcro/friction solutions for the model 3? Are their ties down spots I haven't found yet (Since we take it in/out frequently I'd prefer a solution that was quick).

    Or should I just add a spacer against the read seats so it can't slide front to back..

    My low tech solution: I have a couple of old pillows that I use to cushion in front and behind loads. Doesn't alter the car and seems to work well for me.

    Yea, that's the type of thing I was thinking for a "spacer" Pillow, or rolled up blanket..
