Carpet mat clips

Recommended Posts

I have lloyds carpet mats that have little female clips attached to them that meet up with the male clip which is attached to the seat mount. Problem is there is only one male clip per matt. Where can I get two more male clips? Thank you

If you still have OEM Velcro buttons in foot-well carpet, I'd scrap the Lloyds tabs all together and just stick some 'fuzzy' (loop) side Velcro to back of mats. Then use an Xacto knife to trim off stitching holding female tab to Lloyd's mat back. Velcro will hold them just as / more securely plus you'll never forget to unclip mats when removing in future. 2" wide velcro (available in most hardware and craft stores) works perfectly. Although Velcro is adhesive backed, I also add a few dabs of super-glue to ensure they stay put... which they have for 2+ years even w/ monthly removal for cleaning, etc..

Basically, cut the loop side into four 2" x 2" squares (2 needed per mat). Mate it w/ the hook side in the foot-well. Remove tape over adhesive side and place 3-4 small dabs of super-glue on adhesive. Then, place mats back into foot-well keeping rear portion raised from Velcro and position as desired. Once in place, lower rear of mat onto super-glue/adhesive back of Velcro loop. Press firmly where Velcro is and wait a minute. Then, pull mat back out making sure to gently pull and reach under to assist release of loop Velcro (now attached to back of mat) from hook in floor button. Allow to cure overnight outside of vehicle and you'll be all set!

Otherwise, yes try Lloyd's or one of their resellers for replacement clips.

Good luck :)
