DVD Shelving

We're having problems shelving our DVDs and I'd be interested to hear how
others are doing it. We use standard book shelving with "zig zag" inserts
which display DVDs at a 45 degree angle; each zig-zag notch holds a maximum
of 4 DVDs (in Kwik security cases) and there are 5 notches per zig-zag.

The problem is more the security cases than anything. Because they're
narrow, and bigger on bottom than top, they don't stand upright very well,
and putting more than three side-by-side makes them tilt inward at the top
(that's one reason we're using zigzags and not placing them spine-out.
Other reason is they're easier to browse the way we have them now). The big
problem is that about 5 times a day someone accidentally plays dominos with
them. Only solution I can think of (outside of completely replacing the
shelving) is to find new zig-zag inserts which not only angle at 45 degrees,
but also tilt the DVDs slightly upward as well. Anyone know of such a
