This review is from: SafeFit Kick Mats 2-Pack in Black (Discontinued by Manufacturer) (Baby Product)
Let me start with the fact that these are very well made, and the fabric is nice. IF these work for your car, I would recommend them. But the versatility of the product makes me have to put it down to a two (possibly even a one).

This fabric has an elastic band that slides over the seat (Elastic strap is on the driver's side of the seat). At the top of the seat it has a velcro strap that goes around the head rest.

These will NOT work if your seat belt is connected to your seat. That was the case with my Suburban. My parent's GMC Acadia also have the same type of seat. The elastic strap slips over the seat belt, leaving it unable to be pulled out.

These will also NOT work if you have a nice lumbar support at the bottom of the seat. This was the case with our Jeep. The seat was too thick for the strap to work. Once the elastic was pulled down it protruded and actually bothered me when I sat in the seat.

The other thing that I didn't love was that it wasn't quite long enough, so some of my taller kids that still have swinging feet, still kick the bottom of the seat. The mat can only go down as long as the elastic on the other side of the seat can go down. Our seat had another four inches below that point.

If I were to redesign this, I would make it long enough for the whole back of the seat, and have velcro straps that go around the bottom corners of the seat where the seat bolts to the floor (legs of the seat). This would allow it to be much more versatile. Again, the material and construction are nice, but the fact that so many cars can not utilize this product makes me have to rate it low.
