How secure sliding drawers

Hi,

I'm about to install sliding drawers in my Suburban 07. The third row will not be removed.
I haven't figured out how to secure the frame from tipping over when the drawer is extended to its full length (the trunks depth). The frame will be made of wood.

Any ideas or someone with experiance of the matter?

Thanks in advance.

I'd look at utilizing the cargo tie-down bolts to secure it.

But wood would make me really nervous. In a crash, the wood will break and you'll have splintered wood flying around the cabin. Personally, I wouldn't want someone throwing a wooden chest of drawers at the back of my head at 60 MPH. Sounds like a less-than-optimal outcome.
