securing rear seat storage

alright those of you who have things stored under your rear seat, what do you have to keep it there in the event or a roll over?

I have a ton of stuff back there that I don't need in the back of my head during a major accident. my thought is take a factory cargo net and drill a few holes along with a bracket or two and that would be one way.

thanks,
-James

Your idea would work well. But I'm pretty sure they won't come up without pulling the little rope loop on the end. What do you have under there? I have ratchet straps, crowbar, 2x4, mini air compressor and tree saver strap.

this idea might be the false sense of security I need haha. its mainly for the bigger stuff, I have a under that rear seat. Jumper cables, u joint, socket set, beaker bar, 1/2" extensions, ham radio, spare belt, extra clothing, bolts (5/8"-7/16") 4 d rings, other miscellaneous tool sets (wrench set here soon) that is more or less the list of bigger/ heavier items I have under there that are my concern. there are quite a few more items but those are all just smaller and lighter weight things. ( yes I know some of those aren't heavy that I listed)

In the event of a roll over, Ill have more important issues to address than the goodies I have stashed under my seats.

A net would work just fine and could be removed.

I'm not worried about losing the items I'm more concerned with them staying there and not flying around the cab.

Have never worried about that stuff under the seatin a rollover, but it is probably a wise idea. I seem to always have a lot of loose stuff on the floor, back seat, trunk etc.
I like the cargo net or possibly some canvas tool bags that could be secured by some hook, latch, d-ring etc.
I probably need a sticker on my dash reminding me that loose items around the cabin can become flying missiles in an accident

Why don't you guys invest in a tool box and ratchet strap it to the cargo cover clips on the floor like me?

There's only a couple things on your list that won't fit in a tool box.
