- Premium non-skid materials on both the top and bottom of mat help keep your child’s seat securely in place and prevent the mat from slipping
- Ultra dense molded foam padding prevents scratches and dents to your car’s upholstery through years of use
- Back panel folds to the perfect height for rear facing infant seats, no need to worry about tall mats falling over on baby
These function okay as a product, but made installation of the car seat very difficult since it was wider than my seats. I have 2 car seats and a booster on that row, so I had to overlap the two mats I purchased. On the positive side, it does stop the car seat from slipping once it is securly installed (correctly) but during installation I had a difficult time keeping the mat in place. It kept wanting to slip out of place with the car seat while I was trying to secure the belts and clips. It does work, though, for protecting the leather seats from creasing and possible ripping.
Same as Summer Infant Elite DuoMat
Check prices first. For some reason the same product is listed in two different pages by Amazon and at different prices.This item is the exact same thing as “Summer Infant Elite DuoMat for Car Seat, Black by Summer Infant, Inc. ” . They are both made by Summer Infant, Inc and are identical, but right now, have a $5 price difference.I purchased this item to use in our new car on our faux leather seats. So far so good, although I am nervous about the backing melting onto the seats that others have warned about but I decided to take the risk after looking at all the other options.I will try to remember to come back for an update after time goes by to let you know how it performs.
Very good quality. I have been using this mat for a year, and the car seat on top of it leave no dent to the leather seat in my car.[Updated June 2013]I have been using it for over 4 years now, and I have bought 3 more last few years. The mats and my leather seats are still in excellent condition. I have light color leather seats in both cars, and this mat does not discolor my seats.I notice some reviewers said the non-slip plastic at the bottom melted. I don’t have this problem with my mat. I park my car outdoor everyday at work, but I live in southern California and it’s not that hot here even in summer. So, depending on where you live, this mat may or may not be a good choice for you.
So far this seems to be a good buy. It is of good quality. It is thick enough that I believe that it will protect my leather seats. It also comes up high enough in the back to protect the entire seat from my 2 year old son’s carseat.
Good job at keeping my seats protected
I got this mainly so the car seat didn’t dig so much into the seats leaving a horrible impression into them when removed. This helped disperse the weight on those areas and is much more gentle on my (rather expensive) leather seats. It would probably also be useful for some spills, but I rarely allow food or drinks in my car anyways.
Protects the leather in your car!
I use this under my son’s car seat. It protects the leather in my car from snacks and from being permanently stretched by the weight of the car seat. It’s non-slip, and I do not feel that it impedes the safety of the car seat in any way. Would highly recommend.
Does the Job
We invested in three Kiddopotamus Elite Duomats for our 2-month old, 2-year old, and 5-year old. It’s used primarily to protect the leather seats in the minivan as well as to grip the carseats. Makes cleanup/vacuuming in the car easy since it picks up the tiniest of crumbs that can hide in the seat crevices. Overall, very pleased with the product.
YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED!!!
THIS IS A MUST HAVE FOR LEATHER SEATS! WONDERFUL PRODUCT/ GREAT PRICE. HAS A GREAT TOY HOLDING POUCH IN FRONT AND EXCELLENT QUALITY PRODUCT.WELL WORTH THE MONEY TO SAVE SEATS IN VEHICLE!!!
BEST THING EVER!!
I LOVE this carseat protector! I have White Lether seats and this protector has kept the carseat from cutting and leaving indentions in my seat. I love the toy holder too. I wish I would have known about these sooner as we have another car with cloth seats that has been ruined by the carseats. I only wish they came in different colors to look better with my interior. I would love to see these in White!
This is a great product! It fits nicely under the car seat and is non-slip so the seat is still really safe. It covers the whole area that the car seat touches the car (and I have a big car seat) and I am no longer concerned about my son’s car seat damaging my car. I definitely recommend this for anyone with a car seat (forward or rear facing) who doesn’t want any damage on their seats.
