I know about the 3D printed parcel shelf tethered Model 3 Etsy iteration, but need some ideas for the MS. I am tempted to just pour silicone into the pit and
cover with electrical tape but anyone know a better solution short of drilling into the lever? Anticipated thanks.

OP, so this is a “permanent” mod then, ie you can’t put the seats down after? Do you routinely keep valuables in the trunk? To me, the stickers will prob do the most to have a potential thief move on.
They unlatch from the trunk allowing backrests to go down.

The false bottom trunk may be the safest place, especially with a trunk liner and a storage organizer box above it.
