How to secure Subthump box so it doesn't slide

So I put a subthump dual rear firing 12" box in my car the week I got almost 2 years ago and I don't think at that time they offered the different box for 2012- newer camaros (not sure if the dimensions are different from 10-11 or what) and the box loves to come sliding towards the rear of the car on hard acceleration. Any one have pictures or ideas on how to keep this box locked into place. I would really like to avoid running screws through my sheet metal. Any suggestions? Or should I pony up and get the newer box? Anyone with the 2012- newer box have issues with it sliding out of place?

There are a few thing that you can do to get the box to stop sliding you can go down to th hard ware stor and get L brackets and Secured that way. But that leaves holes. Or go to the auto parts stor and get a role of Velcro and wage it at the top and bottom of the box and that will hold it

Hell ya it is. With that you can just use the hook side on the bottom on the box and it will hook the trunk carpet

Mine is pretty heavy with the 12 inch subs in it plus I have an extra layer of carpet that's pretty thick under it. It doesn't move at all.
