    When I go pedal to the metal, my third-party cubby often flies out. Does anyone have a hack to keep the cubby in place?

    I see some vendors selling cubbies that lock, but they are pricey and not that attractive.

    Reply, I don’t have a cubby drawer, but I have an ID badge I keep on that shelf. I have a refrigerator magnet stuck to the badge and one stuck on the shelf to prevent it from flying out. Maybe something similar will work for you. I don’t know if there is enough space in your case.

    I have the RPM Tesla one. It doesn't "lock," but it slips under the lip enough to stay in place and it's never slid out on me. I don't think it's much/any more expensive than the rest of them.

    Ive never had any issue with mine either, im pretty sure its a "topfit" or "tesla home" that being said.

    I have the same issue, I am thinking to stick on flat magnets on the cubby drawer and the far back of the cubby that should keep it in place.

    Well yeah, double sided tape and velcro strips are a tesla owners best friend.

    I use velcro to hold on my door scuff guards, and double sided tape for my accent/mood lighting strips (mounted under the seats) my dash mat is also held down by velcro.

    All exterior stuff i used 3m double sided tape
