I decided to fashion a few floor mat hold downs, I was tired of my mats constantly getting kicked around. I did some research and found this on another forum so I decided to do it myself. Everything I needed cost me about $20 because I went with all stainless steel components:



FIRST:

This is all I need to do the job

1 Large Washer

1 Small Washer

1 Blot with rounded head

1 Wing Nut

1 Bolt

1 Box Cutter



SECOND:

Start off by putting the Large Washer on top of the Bolt



THIRD:

Use the box cutter to cut your carpet in the spot you want the hold down. Make sure to cut it wide enough to slide the large washer in, and down in the middle far enough for the bolt to slip down and the full washer to fit under the carpet.

FIFTH:

Cut a slit in the area of carpet you want the hold down to be.



SIXTH:

Tighten the bolt down and tuck the cut carpet around the bolt.



SEVENTH:

Fasten the carpet down using the small washer and wing nut.

I'd say it came out pretty good used. I used 2 on my front two mats and 1 on each rear mat at the top middle and they all work perfectly!
