    I finally fixed one of the things that annoys me about my 3rd gen Tacoma. The passenger side floor mat. I’ve researched multiple options to keep it from sliding when passanges enter and exit the truck.
    I decided to go with the eagle klaws, purchased on amazon for $10.96
    https://www.amazon.com/Eagle-Klaw-Anti-Slip-Fixing-Retainers/dp/B06WGMQTQV

    They seem like they are made with a strong plastic that will last. They came packaged well from amazon. The package had installation instructions that where easy to follow.
    Took me less than 10 min to install them. I took my time positioning the mat and making sure I had the klaws where I wanted them. I used the cutting tool provided to cut the hole in the mat. I used a rubber mallet to secure them in place.
    End result the mat is in a fixed position and does not move any more.
    They are easy to unscrew and remove mat as needed to clean.
    I may be buying more for the others mats I have that move. 53B21CA3-0995-4FE2-A786-82E4E206135A.jpeg 3BA2ED88-9611-4C6E-B6E9-E0C008EE9773.jpeg

    I was making sure it’s what I wanted to do. I didn’t (and still don’t) like the idea of cutting a hole in my all weather mat. Kind is defeats the purpose of all weather when there are holes in them.
    We will see if water and melted snow goes through the holes and onto the carpet.

    I haven’t had any issues with leaking yet and used them all winter. I guess time will tell how they hold up over the years.

    I figured the eagle klaws in the back wouldn’t last because of the kid. They’ve taken a beating and are still holding up with no leaking either.

    I used a hammer to get through the floor mats. To get the claws in I beat them like they owed me money.

    I shot 2 holes in my passenger mat with a 44, knawed a hole in the Amazon box, opened the plastic wrapper with an axe, shoved the hole punch in a red potato and shot it out of my tater gun, screwed the Eagle Klaws into the mat, tried to stomp barefooted, realized the Klaws were installed incorrectly, got the flat bar to detach my floor mat from my foot, watched a YouTube video, put on a work boot, got'r done!

    That was one thing I noticed on the 2018 is they have this from the factory. I guess in 2016 and 2017 they didn't think it was a big deal as there are no pedals on that side.
