Frequently Asked Questions
Will Eagle Klaw Work For Me?
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.
It takes about 3 minutes to install 2 fasteners for one floor mat. Having pre-installed grommets saves time even more.
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.
Our product is designed to work in all cars that have carpet flooring with sufficient padding or space under it.
No. Eagle Klaw securely fastens car mats that are made of rubber, vinyl, soft carpet or other materials.
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.
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.
Yes. The cap post fits pre-installed grommets with 3/8” holes and larger.
Yes. Most automobiles subject to related safety recalls had car mats with nib backing, which did not provide secure enough retention.
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.
If you can flex or move the retainer in the carpet, it may come off when you least expect it.
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.
To remove mats for cleaning, simply unscrew the cap with your fingers, coin, flat screwdriver or 7/8” socket.
You will need two retainers in the back of the 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.
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.
Theoretically, yes, but proper installation can not be guaranteed.
