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.
