I have recently bought a large footlocker, and find that I still have some extra room.
I have to place this footlocker in the bed of my boyfriend's F150, and then we race down I35 for about 100 miles (not the smoothest of interstates, I'll be honest). I now realize that my precious Xbox will also have to sit in this footlocker. Since I bought the Xbox second-hand, I can't do what I did for my sewing machine (also in the footlocker) and just taking the packaging styrofoam and mount that to the bottom of the footlocker. 

Here are my questions:
-is there something I can use to pad this xbox into a standard size box so that it won't fling itself all over the footlocker?
-what do I do to to secure the box to the footlocker? I'm not sure 'industrial strength velcro' exists.

plus - I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place, I'm at a lost as to where to put it.

Feel free to visit my college-student-sews-out-of-a-trunk blog!
Just click here and be whisked away to a world of practical sewing. : )

You can use old grocery bags to pad the xbox, it's cheap and a good way to make sure things don't break. I'm not sure what you mean by securing the box to a footlocker, but I am fairly sure industrial velcro exists.

I hope I was able to help.
