    could use a thicker knuckle for the buckle! That’s my only advice!

    Ha! You made me actually laugh out loud. That's funny.

    For anyone wondering that hasn't bought one, I make a wood frame out of 1x2s to prevent the platform from bending during shipping.

    Awesome product btw! I think I got one of the last ones before you sold out of the full length. Saved my back seat from my puppy haha. The one question I have is if there is a better way to secure it to the seat latch hook? It rattles a lot going over the crappy roads we have around here and I notice the clips ride up the hook.

    You could DIY something to make it a little more secure, I designed it to be able to move on purpose because everyone will have different stuff behind their seats so the platform will sit in different positions for some people.
    An idea would be attaching a bungee cord of sorts to something behind the seats and pulling on the pin part of the attachment system from the backside so it pulls the platform back into the back of the truck if that makes sense. I would love to hear if others have better ideas for that as well but its purposely designed to be more accommodating of how much gear people can store behind the seats.
    Also it's a pretty simple design so I could keep costs as low as I could for everyone.

    The new batch of 100s, 60s, and 40s should be in stock somewhere around 5-7 weeks from now. I know it's kind of a while but I am pushing as hard as I can, lots of material shortages and longer lead times have backed up production due to the shutdowns over the past year. I also probably should have gotten started on the next batch sooner than I did but did not anticipate my first batch to sell out so quickly. Should be better next time as I progress!

    Thanks for that answer, I understand the throught process. I might try and 3d print some ideas next week when I have some time. Do you happen to have an stl file of the current clip that I could tweak? If not wouldnt be too hard to recreate.

    This bungee idea might be gold... I'll attempt it later and provide feed back!

    I may also try this but I'd have to get some bungie cords first.

    For me personally it should work great because I have the CNC molle panel behind my seats but I cant fully remember if there is a good place to hook a bungee with the factory plastic cubbies. Let me know!

    Need to buy some shorter bungies... got this one double wrapped and pulled through, need a better option.

    Really think maybe a semi curved knuckle pushing back from the middle of the latch and then sliding in the T-lock would be a decent option.
