The best accessories for your car boot liner

Our Boot liners are available with a range accessories and add-ons to enhance their performance and offer solutions for different needs. In this guide we talk you through accessories available to accompany the Hatchbag boot liner.

The accessories:

Why do I need car boot accessories?

Boot liner accessories provide added protection for areas around the boot, such as your bumper, the top of your seats and the tailgate. This helps ensure that the majority of your car is fully protected, making it the ideal solution for dog owners, as well as customers that regularly transport dirty or heavy loads.

The bumper flap, seat flap and boot liner extension should be ordered during your boot liner purchase as the fixings for these add-ons need to be securely sewn into the boot liner.

Boot Liner Extension – for a fully protected boot

Boot Liner Extensions do exactly what they say on the tin: they offer extended cover, when the seats are folder flat so that the whole area up to the back of the front seats is protected.

A boot liner extension is perfect for a variety of uses:

  • Fishing gear
  • Mountain bikes
  • Golf equipment
  • DIY sailing
  • Trips to the tip
  • Camping

Bumper flap – to protect from scratches

A bumper flap acts like an extension of your boot liner, protecting the bumper when loading or unloading so that it doesn’t get scuffed or damaged. It also helps to prevent scratches on the bumper when dogs jump in and out of the boot.

The bumper flap is attached by hook and loop fastener to the rear of the liner, meaning it is easy to put on when you open up your boot and remove once you’ve loaded it or your dog has jumped in. You can then fold it up and store it neatly in the back of the car. Easy!


How to buy:

  • Click on boot liners
  • Choose manufacturer
  • Choose car model
  • Look at optional extras and find rear seat flap

Rear Seat flap – to protect your seats

Seat flaps will fold over the back of your seats adding protection to the top of your seat and your head rests. It can also be used to extend the length of your liner when folding the rears seats down in conjunction with a rear plus or rear split liner.

Like the bumper flap, the seat flap attaches with hook and loop fastener and is easy to remove and fasten on, so you can use it all the time or simply attach it when you need it.

Just like our boot liners, our seat flaps are custom made to fit your specific car model. You can add a seat flap to your basket on the main boot liner product page for your model.


How to buy:

  • Click on boot liners
  • Choose manufacturer
  • Choose car model
  • Look at optional extras and find tailgate cover

Tailgate cover – to protect the back of your car

Tailgate covers are used on the back door of your car. If you have a large load that may scratch up against the back then a tailgate cover may prove useful. Tailgate covers are available for most models of boot liner we make, and are custom built to fit each specific model and boot door shape.


How to buy:

Odour mat – to stop the smells

To help prevent smells building up in your car, we sell odour mats with an active charcoal ingredient that absorbs and reduces nasty odours from your dog. Our odour mats some extra comfort too since they are made with quilted material. Our odour mats are tailored to fit each specific model.  We also offer them in a generic size range (available in 3 standard sizes) which are more suited for use around the house or on the car seats.


How to buy:

Rubber mat – to protect from heavy usage

Our rubber mats are designed to add extra protection for heavier loads. The stud design reduces slippage during transport as well as allowing heavy objects to move across the mat without snagging when loading and unloading the boot.


How to buy:

Hatchbed mat – dog boot protectors

The Hatchbed mat is specially designed for dogs. It has a unique non-slip ribbed rubber backing that won’t slide around as your dog gets in or out of your boot or during transit.

The mats are designed to provide extra comfort for your dog, with a soft pile that is approximately 25mm deep. The product is recommended by vets and pet care professionals to offer your dog the most comfortable ride in the back of your vehicle.

We sell these mats in pairs so you will always have a spare, clean mat available. The mats are machine-washable.
