Safety Tips for Installing Auto Accessories

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

When purchasing accessories for your car, you want to make sure they are properly installed for safety reasons.  All of our products are rigorously tested to ensure high quality and safety.  However, if not properly used or installed, any product purchased from any supplier can be considered unsafe.  To help you get the most out of your products, we have compiled a list of things to do, to make sure you are as safe as you can be when installing custom auto accessories.

  • Before installing your new floor mats, remove the old ones. If you place your new mats on top of the old ones, this may not leave enough room for you to move the gas and brake pedals effectively.
  • Secure your floor mats to the floor.  Many vehicles have special hooks that secure the mat.  These hooks are there for your safety. If you do not use these hooks, your mat may slide into an unsafe position.  If your vehicle does not have hooks, place your floor mats securely and be certain that they do not  interfere with your pedals.
  • Only use mats that are designed for your car’s make and model.  If you buy the wrong mats, the fit could make it more difficult to reach and operate the pedals.

When you purchase any accessory for your car, it is important that you test it out before you take the car on the road.  Try driving around in an open area to ensure that the car is running smoothly. As always, safety is the highest priority.
