The shelves (x 2) are full-length and lined, with no stupid dividers to frustrate you when trying to get to that tin that has got itself wedged in somehow behind the seatback and just out of arms reach...

The snaps you see hold the seatback cushions in place as additional prevention for anything coming adrift - although I've not ever needed it yet.
