I traced my particle board thinger in my trunk onto a piece of 3/8" plywood and then screwed on chunks of scrap oak moulding in the shape of an 'L' for each corner. Never moved again...

Mine's uber heavy, so it never moves around on me... but I guess I would just say L brackets and screws...

My box is made with 1" MDF and doesn't move. But they have these holders for coolers on boats. I have them on my boat and they hold my big ol cool filled with ice. They are essentially plastic Ls that hold the cooler at each corner. You would have to screw them down to the car, but not the box. You could accomplish the same thing by doing what finch said. Or if your really lazy you could get 1" strips of velcro, if your box is lite enough to slide around velcro will hold it fine. Is your box wrapped in carpet or is just plain MDF. If its just MDF then thats the reason its sliding around so much. Chances are your box has carpet, but you never know.

You don't have to screw the brackets into the box, just the base support board. The vertical part will just be against the box to hold it in place.
