    Our little one is growing faster than our Model X could ever be ... grin, she can now kick the seat back. We thought Amazon would offer some great idea, only finding ourselves drown by ocean of choices, and we don't even know if some of the kick mats may fit. So what kick mats do you use or recommend?

    I agree, but having 2 kids, I’d rather have the utility and protection for my seat backs than the sexiness and foot prints/scuffs.

    You can remove your kids' shoes before they learn not to kick the back of the seat.

    My husband actually removes the kids' shoes and put in a storage bin (underneath the driver seat) every time he put the little kid in the vehicle (2 years old), and the big kid (6 years old) does the same thing by himself (lol). I was lazy plus I moves the seat up far enough from the little feet so I didn't remove his shoes. My little son keeps asking me to take his shoes off but I refuse to do it; and one time he positions himself close enough to kick the back seat so I had to remove the shoes for him. He said "Momy, you made it dirty. You didn't take my shoes off." OMG :confused:.

    This link now points to an air compressor. Would you mind fixing it or letting us know the details for the product you were intending to refer to?
    I'm looking for kick mats with storage that work well with the Model S seats, so this definitely sounds interesting :)

    Seems like they done make the same ones I purchased, but this one is almost identical and also has a 4 star rating on amazon. Hope this helps

    So I picked them up anyway (http://a.co/d/8ahrsbB). They are great. The straps are stretchy so they can get around the large headrest and seat base. Working fairly well so far except the bottom isn't fully covered so that part gets dirty. Can't win everything. But for the most part it does the job.

    I just installed the Brica mats yesterday but haven't field tested with the kids yet. Anyway, I was able to tuck the strap (including the clip) underneath the headrest so that its not at all visible from the front seat. If I get some time, I will try to post some pictures, but these should work great.
