Will Eagle Klaw Work For Me?

What makes Eagle Klaw car mat clips different from other floor mat fasteners?

It’s the way Eagle Klaw connects to your car floor. Unlike other fasteners that come loose, dislodge or break, Eagle Klaw penetrates the carpet at 5 points and tensions with spring-like action, thus preventing it from moving in any direction.

How long does it take to install Eagle Klaw?

It takes about 3 minutes to install 2 fasteners for one floor mat. Having pre-installed grommets saves time even more.

How durable is the Eagle Klaw assembly?

Being made from reinforced polymer, Eagle Klaw will not fall apart even under stressful conditions, such as emergency braking. Remember, you have to step on it hard to install it in the first place.

Does the car floor type matter?

Our product is designed to work in all cars that have carpet, rubber or vinyl flooring with sufficient padding or space under it. The floor material must be thick enough for 1/2" anchor spikes and softer than the anchor material.

See the dimensions on Why it Works page. Some customers make small holes in the vinyl floor using an awl and then install the anchors.

Does the car mat material matter?

No. Eagle Klaw securely fastens car mats that are made of rubber, vinyl, carpet or other materials.

Can Eagle Klaw be used with different floor mat thicknesses?

Yes, the Eagle Klaw cap, with a 1/2″ partially threaded post, works with most OEM and aftermarket all-weather car mats, such as WeatherTech.

Does the Eagle Klaw cap stay connected to the car mat when it is removed for cleaning?

Yes, if the mat thickness allows for use of the sliding washer that locks into the unthreaded portion of the cap post. You don’t have to use the sliding washer if the pre-installed grommets are too high or the rubber or vinyl mat material is too thick.

Do I need Eagle Klaw if my floor mat has nib backing?

Yes. Most automobiles subject to related safety recalls had car mats with nib backing, which did not provide secure enough retention.

Can the mat backing nibs interfere with the anchor?

While making a hole, punch out one of the nibs to provide more space for the sliding washer. Some nibs may be shaved off from the back of the mat, but usually it’s not necessary.

I have a retainer installed in my car. How do I know if it needs to be replaced with Eagle Klaw?

If you can flex or move the retainer in the carpet, it may come off when you least expect it.

Can water get through the cap mounting hole in the floor mat?

Tightening the mat down with the cap to the anchor, with or without the sliding washer, prevents or minimizes the possibility of water getting through the hole compared to a hook or post fastener design.

What colors does Eagle Klaw come in?

Eagle Klaw mat fasteners come in black, beige and grey colors.

Once Eagle Klaw is installed, how easy is it to remove mats for cleaning?

To remove mats for cleaning, simply unscrew the cap with your fingers, coin, flat screwdriver or 7/8” socket.

How many Eagle Klaw retainers should I install for each mat?

You will need at least two retainers for each car mat to prevent it from moving in any direction. Having only one mat clip defeats the purpose because the mat can still move or rotate around it.

Will there be a hole in the carpet if the Eagle Klaw anchor is removed?

No. Because of the spike design, there will be no visible holes left in the carpet if you have to remove the anchor, making it minimally intrusive. This comes handy if you need to install new car mats with holes or grommets that require the anchors to be in a different place.

Can the Eagle Klaw anchor be re-used?

Theoretically, yes, but proper installation can not be guaranteed.

What is the Eagle Klaw warranty?
