What I love: Now that Ariel (17 months) is walking around while we out her shoes are getting just as dirty as Elijah's (7 years) which means she is also tracking that dirt back into the car. I had recently put an okay kick mat on the back of my drivers seat, which does it's job but until I had a DRIVE Auto Products Heavy Duty Kick Mat I didn't know what I was missing.
This is HANDS DOWN the best kick mat on the market. Super large it is 18" by 26" so it should fit almost any vehicle! Industrial strength this mat is made of 100% fiber reinforced commercial- grade materials. It protects your car seat back from mud, dirt, snow, rain, salt, mulch, sand and anything and everything else your child is stepping in. It's super durable, flexible, washable and reversible! To clean you could either just wipe it down or even simply hose it off and allow it to dry! I have no doubt this is the highest quality that will last us for years, if not the life of the car!
Installation is simple! Attach the quick-connect hooks to the headrest and connect the bungees underneath your seat. That's it! It stays put very well and has no problem shifting or sagging!
What I like about this best is Ariel's car seat is still rear facing but because of the quick connect straps for the head rest and super strong design it actually fits perfect on the backseat without interfering with her car seat's safety. It attaches right on the headrest and spans down the the seat bottom where I was able to tuck the straps in. I re-tightened the latch system against the very bottom just to be sure but now when she gets in, even rear facing I know my seat is going to stay clean no matter what she toddles through. I will be updating this post later with a photo of it with her car seat so you can see better how well it works!
Bottom Line: I really love it and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Would I recommend it to my family and friends? YES!
Would I buy it myself based on my experiences with this review? YES!
