Anyone know of a truck mat that allows for access to the lower area

So, I want to buy a trunk mat, but none of the ones I've seen have a cut-out, or access to the lower part of the trunk. I think this would be a great idea, but I have not found something like this. Has anyone here seen anything similar?



Thanks.

The 3d MAXpider has a cutout for the pull handle.
And a crease where it bends.

This true on Model 3 and Model X.

They actually take the design of the car into account.

Unlike the Weather Tech Outsourced mats Tesla Sells.

I literrally could not open my lower trunk on my Model X with the Tesla Cargo Mat. It was a total joke. Returned it.
It grabbed on the sides and buckled (once did manage to open it with 3 hands).

With MaxSpider it's one hand and bends nicely.

Weird- no issue opening mine with the Tesla trunk mat in my 3 (which has a cutout for the handle).... FWIW I'd probably have bought the MaxSpider ones except they didn't exist when I got the car (the floor mats did, and I have em, but the trunk/frunk mats didn't come till later)

Same here - I have the Tesla trunk mat, but find it really easy to lift up the access panel to get in the lower area. Did they make different versions of the mats, I wonder?

One more vote for the OEM mat. It has the cutout and opens fine. It might be slightly better if the mat was actually hinged or something so it wasn't trying to push down on the compartment as much when you pull it up, but it works fine for me.

The Tesla mat works fine. It has a cutout for the loop and is flexible enough that it is easy to open. Here's a video:

Bump. Wondering if there has been anything new introduced in the last 8 months or so. Lots of options on Amazon but most of them look really cheap.
