How to fit a car boot liner

A boot liner is an essential piece of kit if you regularly transport dirty or large items in the boot of your car, such as pets, sports equipment or other potentially damaging goods. Not only does a liner help to keep the inside of your boot clean, but it also protects against damage to the interior of your vehicle. In order to get the most effective performance from your liner, it is vital to ensure it is correctly fitted, so follow our handy guide to installation.

How to fit a car boot liner

It couldn’t be easier to fit your specially designed boot liner. Simply unfold your Hatchbag, ensuring that the base sits neatly in the boot. If you have Velcro-friendly carpet, the liner can be secured directly to this. Alternatively, you will need to apply self-adhesive Velcro tabs to the plastic or metal of your boot interior. Spread the liner over the base of the boot, and secure the back in position around the rear headrests, using the Velcro straps. Once the back of the liner is in position, secure each of the side panels with the Velcro tabs provided to either the carpet or the plastics.  Full Fitting Instructions will be sent out to you with your liner.

If you often transport wet dogs or muddy outdoor sports equipment, your boot liner may become dirty. To ensure your liner stays in great condition, simply wipe it down with a wet cloth to remove mud, grease or dirt.

Removing the boot liner

When it's not in use, it is simple to remove your boot liner. Loosen the Velcro tabs around the base and side panels, before undoing the straps around the headrests. Fold the side flaps down, followed by the back of the liner, before removing it carefully from the boot of your vehicle.

If you regularly take your liner in and out of your vehicle, you may wish to consider our ‘Frequent Use Velcro Patches’, which reduce the fluffing effect on the carpet. See our Accessories section for more information.

Each Hatchbag is designed to follow the contours of your specific model of vehicle, so you can be assured that getting the perfect fit every time is quick and simple. Check out our video for more information about fitting your car boot liner.

Essential Equipment for Fishing

Before you head out on your fishing trip, it’s important to ensure you have gathered the right equipment.    Though a great deal of fishing tools are tailored to certain styles of fishing, there is still a list of key items any keen fisherman would do well to heed.  Discover our essential equipment for fishing:

Essential Equipment for Fishing

Rods

Usually made from fibreglass or carbon fibre for increased pliability, modern fishing rods are categorised on a range of characteristics. Their responsiveness to touch, how well they bend and their core strength are all factors in choosing the right rod, given fishing conditions and personal preferences.

Reels

Whether it's pulling in a fish or preparing for another cast, the reel allows for smooth and rapid movement of the line along the length of the rod. High-end reels incorporate a ‘V’ spool for an even line-lay and drag systems to avoid over-spooling and being overpowered.

Line and Poles

These tools are the fisherman’s connection with his quarry. They are seen very much as workmanlike items compared to shiny reels and lures, but it is crucial to get them right. Lines come in different materials, such as braid and mono filament, and are classed according to variables such as strength, elasticity and visibility.

Hooks

Upon biting the bait at the end of the line, a fish becomes hooked through their upper lip. Shape, size and materials are variables that can be customised, depending on the type of fish intended for the hook.

Head Torch

The advantage of a head-mounted torch is that fishing is possible in poorer light without occupying one of your hands. And passers-by, such as cyclists and motorists, are alerted to your presence.

Boot Liner

When transporting a large amount of equipment that is likely to get dirty as well as wet, a good boot liner is key. A good-sized sheet of hardy material will ensure a minimum of damage and spillage inside your car’s boot.

Waterproofs

The fun of fishing can diminish very quickly if adverse weather sets in. Waterproof jackets and trousers at least keep the rain off, and layers will provide your body with good insulation.

However, if you want to avoid being left with a frayed and scratched car interior follow our top 3 days to protect your car boot.

Follow our top 3 ways to protect your car boot:

Boot liner for your Boot

The boot of your car often has a very tough life. Whether it's transporting muddy football kit, bikes, golf trolleys, pets or gardening supplies it can end up looking messy and uncared for.  You should provide protection for your car boot through a car boot liner.  They fit perfectly into the corners of your boot and are tailored to fit a wide range of makes and models.  They are made of a tough PVC material that can be easily cleaned.  It acts as another layer in your boot to keep it clean and fresh.

Floor mats

Placing mats in the boot will help protect the carpet from dirt being brought in from your goods, and in particular pets.  Adding mats will stop the hard task of removing mud from the material; instead you can simply remove the mat and clean it.  This is a perfect choice for animals that have dirty paws!

Preventing smells

Smells can be one of the hardest problems to remove from the material of your car- especially the smell of wet dog!  Although air fresheners can mask the problem, they can never get rid of the smell.  The odour control pet mat comes with a quilted blanket that contains carbon to absorb and eliminate the odour.
