Sony Radio keeps sliding out

I don't really expect this question to get answered because it's kinda "out there", but last night my sony radio started to shift out of the slot.
can anyone suggest a way to get it to stay in one place?

1) put the slot on the top.
2) your kit should have came with a piece for the back of your radio to slide on the factory I-beam support
3) stuff card board behind the tabs that hold it behind the bezel.

use the factory screws that are used to hold the factory radio (above the a/c controls). It will still hold the aftermarket radio kit in place

with my radio and kit ive found that I needed to do all three to get that bastard to stay put and feel solid.

with out the support (#2) on back of my radio it still wanted to tip down and slide out. it would then pop out even with the card board behind the tabs (#3) the only way i could put the support on was if i put the slot on top (#1). then i could attach the support im talking about to the radio. it will also let you adjust the tilt of your radio. your kit looks to be a tiny bit different so yours may very.
now that my radio rides that factory rail and i have the card board in, you cannot remove my radio from my dash with out taking the bezel off. its solid and cant be budged.

time for a new radio adaptor kit... had this problem a few year back. the reason for it sliding is broken 'clips' that clip to the radio bezel.

or flip it over. with the pocket on the bottom, you lose two of the clips. pocket on top, you keep all the clips. I actually enjoy pocket on top now...perfect radio adjustments with my hand on the shifter ball. lol.. had it on the bottom before, that's when other snaps broke..
