15. A pop-up shelf for your SUV or minivan

Must have this. MUST. I need a  handyman who can help me build it. But wait….Instructables has instructions for us if we want to try it ourselves. It’s basically made with a wire closet shelf, some legs (you can buy them at Home Depot, they’re near the dowels or there’s a wide selection on Amazon), zip ties, and screw hooks.
