Autotuning is a broad topic and affects the entire car. Not only the body, the engine or other attachments are tuned, but also the interior of the vehicle. Of course, in addition to the dashboard and the seat upholstery, it's also worth the effort Foot mats placed. These should round off the overall picture of the interior and be no foreign body. Due to the individual interior design, the floor mats will be of individual design. Thus, it may be necessary that the standard floor mat fixtures are no longer usable and new floor mat fixtures are necessary.
What mattresses are there?
There are different variants to attach the floor mats. One is the meanwhile most common variant, the push button conical attachment. In the footwell while a push button is attached in the form of a blunt cone. The counterpart is on the doormat, which looks like a small hole with plastic edge. The hole is pressed onto the cone and by the special shape it locks with the doormat. Another variant is the screw cap. Here is a screw cap in the footwell and in the doormat an elongated slot with plastic edge as a counterpart. The screw cap can be passed through the slot in a certain position. Then the screw cap is rotated by 90 degrees and locked so. Another very simple variant is the use of Velcro. If the footwell is made of carpet, the attachment of the barbs of the Velcro strip on the underside of the doormat may be sufficient to fix the doormat. Otherwise, in addition, the counterpart of velcro in the footwell to install. Even a simple solution is the use of double-sided adhesive tape. This is mounted on the underside of the doormat and the doormat is then pressed on the appropriate place in the footwell.
Advantages of Doormats?
An advantage of floor mat fastenings is that the mat can not slip, thus optimally protecting the footwell from dirt and wear. Nor can she thereby disturb the driver when operating the pedals. Furthermore, floor mat fixings also allow the fixation of individual floor mats, which just give the tuning object an individual touch. Doormats can be invisible from the outside (double-sided adhesive tape, Velcro) or, if desired, can be made to stand out in color from the mat (knob, push-button).
Disadvantages of floor mat fixtures?
One disadvantage of floor mats is that they may not always fit into the interior design. The use of Velcro and double-sided adhesive tape is not durable and requires regular renewal. Moreover, it does not look quite professional. If new floor mats are used, often the fixings have to be exchanged. The old fortifications can leave unwanted marks that are difficult or impossible to remove. Maybe even a new one can do so vehicle carpet be necessary.
What to look for in floor mats?
It is important to ensure that the floor mats are color-matched to the look of the interior. Furthermore, the floor mat fixtures should be suitable to connect the doormat firmly with the footwell. Therefore, double-sided adhesive tape is only partially suitable for carpeting.
