      Re: your recent article on the Backseat Drawer System:

      The author talked about storing folding tables, pop-up awnings, etc on the top of it. I would be concerned about the danger of these items tearing loose and coming forward at head-height with great force during an accident.

      In my never-particularly-humble-opinion a system like this also needs a safety barrier between the front and rear such as:

      That barrier is pretty cool, but all of the items mentioned in Jeff’s article are tied down. You can see that in the photos. Even his spare tire is tied down.

      The spare tire is secured with what looks like some pretty heavy-duty straps. The stuff on top of the cabinet seems to be held in place with a bungee cord. I wouldn’t trust that to hold in an accident.
