    Are there any nets/strap OEM solutions to securing stuff in the boot.
    My boot is empty as hell so if I ever put some shopping etc in the back it ends up flying around

    I use one (or sometimes two) of the largish robust cardboard trays that bananas are delivered to the supermarket in.

    They hold two or three supermarket bags each and keep them upright. They can also 'wedge' items against the boot sides to stop them sliding about.

    And they are free, unlike the pukka plastic collapsible crates I would otherwise get.

    Think there were side and floor nets for CLKs in the past, but new ones are not available nowadays.

    Probably best to scan Ebay, maybe Ebay DE or worldwide, to see if any pop up.

    MB still offer model independant plastic crates, and the velcro floor 'barriers' may be they would do?

    I have an OEM folding crate, to which I glued four velcro round pads, so it sits still, and an aftermarket net, though it's hardly ever used.

    I mostly use the Mercedes cargo net to secure anything in the rear.

    You can buy cheap nets online and I have in the past done this but I have to say the Mercedes net is way better made and has a double layer so you can open it up to secure light items or use both layers for a stronger grip.
