Odds are they just wanted to simulate what someone would be doing on a day-to-day basis and not exactly test the shelf to its rated threshold - the entire video is like that.Someone commented on the video about the weight that the shelf was shown to handle. the shelf is rated for 700 lbs, but only 400 lbs were stacked on top as those bags are 80 lbs each.

- In the lowest position, it serves as a load floor for maximum storage
- In the middle position, it creates a secure storage area beneath the floorboard
- In the high position, the area underneath increases to create a cargo floor that lines up with the fold-flat second-row seats
- Removed and stored vertically against the back of the second-row seats
