Cargo Net Ideas for Securing Items Stored on the Back Seat of a 2011 2dr JK

Last year I purchased a Tuffy Security Products Tailgate Security Enclosure, Manufacturer Part No: 282-01. It provides great security for items of value when my soft top is down---I am very satisfied with it!

When it's full, I use the back seat for overflow storage. On trail runs, I worry about stuff on the seat shifting when I'm traversing an incline.

Also, when I stop for gas or a meal at a restaurant I worry about theft. I don't feel comfortable leaving my vehicle unattended.

Has anyone used a cargo net to secure their items on the back seat? Would you please post a picture of how you installed it? Your recommendations are welcome for manufacturer, model and/or part numbers.

I'm searching for ideas that are lockable, have quick n' easy access when unlocked---and tough enough that it'd be difficult for a thief to get into it---at least the snatch n' run, opportunistic thief. If it takes them time and effort, especially in a public place---I figure it'll reduce the likelihood that they'll expose themselves to being apprehended.

eXomesh cage system might do the trick.

For Example:

Another idea is to use a custom made canvas cover or tonneau cover.

The challenge with these is that they probably will not fit over my rear Tuffy storage compartment with my mounted trail jack, shovel and folded down soft top in the way.

See prototype (idea) below that I'm thinking of....

Safari Straps - Cargo Nets

Does anyone have experience using cargo nets sold by Safari Straps (http://www.safaristraps.com). How rugged are they? Can a thief cut through them easily? Is one model better than another for being tamper proof and resistent to cutting?

16GA Steel Perforated Sheet Solution

Update:

Decided on a solution that I can live with. Went to Loucon Metal off Slack Rd. in Ottawa ON Canada. Purchased a 25" x 63" piece of "CR STL PERF SHT 16GA 1/2" DIA X 11/16" STAGGERED" and two 63" 50W STL ANGLE - BAR SIZE 1" x 1" x 1/4".

Dave at Capital Dodge in Kanata, ON Canada will assemble the three components and mount the assembly across the the tub of my JK over the rear seat.

He'll get some fasteners that allow me to secure n' lock the unit in place.

When I laid out the parts where I measured them to be---it was nice n' tight fitting.

Quite light too.

No carpet knife or tin snips are going to make it easy for a grab n' run thief.

Still no guarantees that I won't be robbed---but I can live with what I've got to secure my stuff on the back seat.

I really like what the final product looks like, and its utility. Here’s some updated images (Dave’s install yesterday). The assembly was spray coated with flat black truck bed liner protectant.

Ottawa Fastener Supply has my order for “SPAENAUR Security Hex Socket Button Head Machine Screws”

Once I replace the regular bolts with the security head versions, it’ll add a bit more of a theft deterrent for a quick snatch n’ run.
