Mat Attachments

#01 What are Mat Attachments?

Mat Attachments refers to a “part” or means by which OEM Manufacturers secure their factory floor mats to the floors of their vehicles. The use of mat attachments is relatively “new” to the automotive industry however as of late, has become a staple aspect of floor mats for automobiles. Almost all cars made from 1999 to current will use some sort of method to attach floor mats to the carpets. Some vehicles will only have them in the driver mat and others will have them in all of the mats. To keep things easy and simple, we’ll normally refer to these attachments as “grommets” since in most cases, we’ll use a metal grommet in our mats to work with the “hooks” or “posts” you have in your floors.

#02 How do Mat Attachments work and what do they do?

From the factory, the carpeted floors of your vehicle (not the “floor mat” but the carpeting which lies UNDER the floor mat) will have some type of Snap Post, Twist Post, Hook, or Velcro installed. The factory floor mat for your vehicle will have a “receiver” for the hook/ post to pass through the mat and secure it to the floor and prevent the floor mat from slipping.

#03 What do they look like?

Almost every car manufacturer uses a different type of mat attachment method ranging from Snap Posts, Twist Posts, Hooks, or Velcro tabs. Not only does the type vary by manufacturer but also by model, chassis or year manufactured.

Many car companies hold a patent or trademark on the style or function of their mat attachments so what we have done is develop several Grommet “receivers” that will work seamlessly with your factory “male” posts. Note that for BMW’s from year 2000 to present day, we’ll use the same OEM-Spec Velcro attachment discs that BMW uses. Receivers

#04 Does know where the attachments go?

In most cases, yes! However we may want to speak with you to reconfirm size, location or style. In some cases, we may ask to send you a copy of our pattern for you to review or test fit and confirm our grommet locations are correct. If for some reason they are not, we can always work with you to get the correct locations figured out and installed correctly.

#05 How do I order mats from with Mat Attachments?

When ordering mats for your car, you will be asked “Does your vehicle have Floor Mat Attachments?” Select "Yes, Only Driver Side Mat Attachments". If you’d like to have grommets in both your front driver and front passenger mats, select "Yes, Driver Side + Front Passenger Mat Attachments" for an additional $25. If you’d like grommets installed in your rear mats, please contact us to discuss pricing and availability.

#06 How much is it going to cost?

Since your driver’s mat security is important to us, we do not charge to install mat attachments in them. However, note that if you’d like mat attachments installed in the front passenger side mat, there would be a $25.00 charge for parts and installation. We normally don’t install mat attachments into rear mats however if you would like them please contact us to discuss pricing and availability.

#07 Do I need Mat Attachments on my mats if my car doesn’t have any way to secure the mats to the floor?

Mat Attachments are not necessary for many cars including almost all vehicles made prior to 2000. With the combined strength, weight, rigidity and custom fit of our mats, we’ve designed our mats to not slip or cause issues while driving. If you want Mat Attachments but your vehicle does not currently have any installed, contact us to discuss After-Market Mat Attachments available.
