General Boot Liner fitting instructions
- Bootliner - Requires NO fixings
- Tailgate Cover - Requires NO fixings
Every Hatchbag boot liner has been designed to fit a specific vehicle.As every vehicle is different the method of fitting WILL vary from vehicle to vehicle. These instructions are a GENERAL guide to the different fixing methods
Hatchbag boot liners are generally designed to follow the contours of the carpet in the load area of your vehicle
We weld “hook fastener tabs” onto the boot liner fabric – these attach directly to the carpet in the load area of your vehicle (We will refer to this as “hook fastener friendly carpet)
Please note none of the photographs are specific to your vehicle
- Remove the load cover. In most cases it may be replaced later.
- Set the floor level / the seat incline to suit the specification of your order, if applicable.
- Place the boot liner into the car boot with the Hatchbag logo at the seat end. Flatten the base so it fits snugly against the edges.
- Hook fastener welded onto the boot liner will attach directly to the carpet.
- PLUS / SPLIT VERSION ONLY - fasten the hook & loop fasteners between the side panels and the seat panel.
HOOK / LOOP
- Starting with the middle headrest, loop the hook & loop fastener straps around both headrest posts. Make sure to hold the front part of the base in position as not to pull the boot liner too far up. Repeat the procedure with the left and right headrests.
ELASTIC / BUNGEE
- If elastic loops or rubber bungees are sewn into the front panel of the boot liner, these attach to suitable points
located around the rear seat. Make sure to hold the front part of the base in position as not to pull the boot liner too far up.
REAR PLUS VERSIONS
You MUST unfasten the hook fasteners + the headrest straps before you recline the rear seat uppers. (‘Please refer to REAR PLUS / SPLIT options on website to see details)
SIDES & BACK
- Carefully position the side panels snugly into place.
- The hook fastener welded / sewn on the reverse face of the panel will attach directly to the carpet.
ADDING OPTIONAL EXTRAS
- If you add a rear plus / rear split option then when you fold your 2nd row seats down, there will be a small gap at the top and side of the seats left exposed. The rear seat flap or boot liner extension will cover theses - see optional extras
- If you decide to purchase a seat flap, bumper flap or boot liner extension at a later date, then you will need to stick the loop fastener strip onto the liner yourself, rather than it being securely sewn on.
Please note the following photos are non-specific to your vehicle
- The seat flap is designed to protect the top of your rear seat giving additional protection from drooling dogs etc.
- The seat flap can also be used in conjunction with the rear plus or split option(s). With the rear seats in the folded position the seat flap covers the exposed gap at the top of the seats. (image 3)
- Lower the headrests.
- Attach the seat flap to the loop fastener strip that has been sewn onto the boot liner just below the top of the rear seats. (image 1)
- The flap is then placed over the rear head rests and down the back of the passenger seats. (image 2)
- If the seat flap sits over large headrests and obstructs your rear view: carefully create openings in the flap to accommodate the headrest posts.
- The hook fasteners welded to the reverse face of the panel will attach directly to the carpet.
- Fit boot liner.
- Attach the bumper flap to the loop fastener strip that has been sewn onto the base of the boot liner. (image 5)
- The bumper flap either folds into the vehicle OR can be detached and stored elsewhere when you close the tailgate.
- The “floor extension” offers superior protection to the rear seats when purchased in conjunction with a REAR PLUS option. (image 6)
- The floor extension is designed to attach to a rear plus/rear split version liner.
- It offers additional protection to the back of the front seats and the extended floor area when the rear seats are folded flat.
- It will offer no protection to the rear doors
FREQUENT USE KIT ( hook fastener friendly carpet only)
- If you frequently remove/fit your boot liner from/to your vehicle please note that the carpet will “fluff” up –and to prevent this from happening we have an alternative “Frequent Use Fitting Kit” (image 7+8)
The frequent use fitting kit can be found under the models’ respective accessory page, labeled as “Frequent use tabs”. These can be purchased any time.
