    To anyone who has begun to use seat protectors for your child seats or boosters: Do you have any recommendations for brands or styles that fit well, or any feedback about what you don't like?

    My main concerns are fit and underside adherence. I don't want the covers to get all bunched up with the weight of the seat, and I don't want the covers to mar my Ultra White seats. I have shopped a bit, but would like some real-world feedback on fit.

    Thanks..

    Sorry, just trying to update those color threads so people post everything in the group album. It was a lot of copy/paste, but I think it has much better functionality.

    Plus, doesn't everyone love my beautiful avatar peppering up their feed?

    I am fine with it! The new group albums are great.

    Your avatar is much larger after the TMC update, it definitely catches the eye (like seeing a Model X in the wild!)

    Hi, have you gotten any feedback since then? I really liked the White perforated interior..but upkeep sure isn't easy. So far I'm just using beige color sofa slip cover (which is UGLY) for it. If you have any other feedback or found any other places that sell it, please do share, thanks.

    My wife's solution was a bit outside the box, but it works well so far. We have the white seats and instead of getting a seat cover she bought white bath mats with a white rubber underside and cut them to size. They don't stand out since they are also white, and they have grip on the bottom. IMG_1954.JPG IMG_1953.JPG

    Cool solution. Be careful with the underside - the biggest complaint on the rubberized seat protectors (at least judging by Amazon reviews) is that they adhere to the seat and damage it. So if it's hot, or on long trips, you might want to take them off from time to time and adjust them.

    That's good to know--I'll definitely keep an eye on the underside.

    I am getting my X on Wednesday and also have the white seats. You should call your car seat manufacturer. If you use something that they haven't approved, it voids the warranty on the car seat (and they would potentially not be liable if the car seat ever malfunctioned and you sued them). I have a Clek Foonf seat and called Clek today. They make a pad specifically designed for their seats that has been crash-tested, so I ordered that one. But as someone else mentioned, be careful with using a bathmat - people have had lots of issues with mats melting inside of a hot car and ruining the seats. I don't know if a bathmat would do that, but better to be safe than sorry!
