    If you carry one of these in your boot i advise keeping it well strapped down. Imo the case isn't strong enough to be sliding all over the place, crashing from one side to the other especially with all that weight in there.

    A boot-tidy is the way forward. Of course the crates slide around a bit, but at least everything stays in one piece.

    I'll spare you the details of what's in here other than to say it's my winter load-out minus the blanket, doormat, shovel and old trainers. The bottom of the orange crate has this in it. Ooh - and it's on sale right now again! Are Halfords becoming the new DFS?




    Yeah, I've got two tailgate lights. What of it?

    Dismounting it without getting bitten is far more difficult though.

    I picked one of those crates up Chris, very useful. I was considering getting some Velcro strips and sticking it down.

    Notice that because of the loads I'm expecting them to carry, I use zip-ties to hold the crates together.

    If you orientate the "tails" correctly, you can get the cut-off bits to bind in the carpet which reduces the movement. Not totally of course, but enough that after a drive you don't end up with a jumbled mess of stuff all over the place!
