After about 2 weeks, my in-laws finally received a replacement protector that had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM!!!! The customer service rep. assured us that the product had been inspected by their warehouse. The whole situation has honestly been a complete mess.
Please be aware of this problem and think twice about ordering this product espcially if you have light colored covering on your rear seats.
Fortunately, it did protect from other markings and scratches and I was able to clean my seats well enough. If you have cloth backseats, this would be an ideal solution for protection, but I think overall this product and others like it might be overrated.
There are two drawbacks, however:
1) the protector doesn't go high enough up the back. There is still lots of wear on the seat back because of the lack of protection there. This is the biggest disadvantage for me.
2) it makes the seat slipperier. Tight installation of the carseat is more difficult to achieve, although that may be less problematic with newer carseat latch system. I do have the best method for tightening those seats that still use straps for installation. If you have the captain style chairs, install the seat tightly with the chair reclined and then push that seat back up as far as possible and your carseat will not budge, not even a millimeter; and the slipperiness of the seat protector is moot.
To install, you simply put the tab between the vertical and horizontal cushions of your seat. It will still allow you to access the hook points for the car seat without any trouble.
The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is the front pocket is effectively useless for any child whose feet dangle down. We tried putting things in the pockets, and our son kicked his feet and crushed the snacks we had placed there. I would have preferred that they either did not put the pockets there, or maybe make them hang lower. This is a pretty minor issue, and I still really like the cover.
If you ever take your carseat to an inspection point (our local hospital has these in the community a couple times a year), they will tell you that they don't recommend any third party piece, and I understand their concern, but I don't see any added risk by having it there. Nobody there could explain why this would add a risk for my son, they just said it was their policy. The key for me, is that the car seat doesn't move, and with this installed, the seat doesn't move.
Overall, a good investment for me. I like it, and I think it would be a great baby shower gift.
