Default Securing floormats

Anyone found a good way to secure aftermarket floormats? I bought a plain gray set (since the dealer didn't throw any in with my SLE), and the driver'* mat is sliding around a bit despite the plastic spikes on its bottom. The driver'* factory floormat in my old car (96 Dodge Avenger) had a hole in it, that attached to a small hook bolted to the floor. Any similar ideas for non-factory mats?

The hook side of velcro?? Carpet tape? Give it a week or to to adjust to the shape of your floor and it should be fine

Those are both good suggestions.
I find the rear mats move around a lot more then the front ones.

My 91 had buttons to keep the two front floor mats from moving around.... too bad it didn't have it on the back two mats.

I too have the snap on mats. I don't have a problem with the rear mats sliding. I don't hardly let anyone ride in my car.

Awwwwww. Bummer

Seriously, tho, if you're talking about the rear floor matts, the hook side of velcro should work. Stick it to the back of the matt, and it should grab the carpet. For the fronts, the best bet is time. They will eventually get used to the shape of the floor and be fine. (But the velcro couldn't hurt)

My drivers side floormat rotates clockwise, go figure, and all the other ones end up slinding as far back as they can.... No idea how that happens... But i've had Velcro on my list for almost a week, Getting my helmet fitted distracted me...
