Great heat, but poor attachment, and SHORT LIFE!
on December 4, 2011
I bought this for my 2003 Jeep Wrangler. It's a soft-top, and I drive it daily... and while the heater is great, coming outside after work and it's 3 degrees is not an enjoyable ride home.
I put the seat on last week, and I am very impressed with the heat. I turn it on high, and within about 20 seconds I can feel the warmth coming from the seat. In fact, I can't leave the seat on high for longer than five minutes, or I'll start sweating.
Despite the heat, however... I can't figure out how to make the seat-portion attach to my seat. There are two elastic straps for the back, which slide over the back of the seat. However, there are just two elastic straps that hang down from the front of the seat. These straps have small "loops" at the end. A small envelope included had five oddly-shaped "hooks," but there are no instructions explaining how to attach the seat so it doesn't slide around.
I've tried it a couple different ways, but I can't find a method to keep the seat cover stationary, so when I step up-an-in to the Jeep, I don't have to rearrange the seat warmer.
So bottom line... it works well, but needs some explanation of the best way to keep it in place.
Edit - Purchased November 2011. It stopped working mid-February 2012. Very disappointed in the entire thing.
