Trunk Carpet wont stay put, SMH

Anyone have a work around or DIY for keeping the trunk carpeting in place. Mine keeps swooshing around.
Maybe some latches?
Thanks,,

I used industrial-strength velco. Carpet hasn't moved since. I just stuck one side to the car body underneath the carpet and the other side to the bottom of the carpet. Use about (6) 2-inch strips around the outside edges of the carpet.
Old Bones and sheila like this.

If you're concerned about it not sticking to the carpet, you can get the kind that is sewn in place and use that on the carpet.

HTH.

I have found the best way to prepare sushi is to dip it in batter and deep fry it.

I've had that industrial-strength velcro in place for years now and the carpet has never budged once. That stuff sitcks to just about anything. It works REALLY well.

I've also used it to secure my small red-brick sized clsss-D amp to the carpet as well as my under-the-seat subwoofer to the carpeting. :-) Never had an issue with any of the items moving.
