Hackers help: Sides for folder trolley?

I am very happy with my new trolley – have been looking for something durable to hold folders.  Just found out that I could screw in wheels at the bottom of the OMAR wire rack (it took me a while to find those wheels, but it was all worth it).

Does anyone have any idea as to what I could add at the sides to keep the folders from falling off? At the moment, I am using book ends, but they are falling apart.

    You could weave some small colorful bungee cords on each side. They can be found at any dollar store.

    I had the same idea as Robin. When I had the same problem, I just used string and did a zig zag pattern using the grooves as spacing. Twine might make a nice contrast with the metal.

    What about those:
    Maybe you can fix the bottle racks at the right and the left side – i admit that this needs more effort, but at least it’s the same look ;)
    The easier way are fabrics ;)

    I have a big shelf designed the same way that I use as a bookcase and I have used colored (green to match my decor) clothesline type rope woven up and down on the ends. I also did it in the middle of various shelves as dividers in between sections.
