I've taken the other route. Take unnecessary stuff out of the car. :)

I figure that if i just minimize the amount of time that i have cargo in
the vehicle, i reduce the chances of it being a problem by a significant
enough amount that I don't need to get anything additional. If I have a
need to carry more things more regularly, I'll either tie it down to the
hooks in the back, get a cargo net, or decide that it's time to get a
truck or car instead of an SUV. The worst thing that i have in the car
on a regular basis is my laptop bag, which sits nicely behind the
drivers seat where it can only come out when the door is open.
