Eagle Klaw is a patented multi-point tension fastener that grips the floor of your car stronger and installs much easier and faster than any other car mat clip.
And here’s why…
When you step on the cap or hit it with a hammer, the anchor bends inward and the spikes penetrate the carpet on a slight outward angle. When released, the fastener springs back flat and the spikes return to a vertical position, gripping the carpet.
The five-legged design provides optimal force distribution and ensures that all spikes are inserted at the same time. The fastener doesn’t move if you push the mat hard in any direction. It is also very difficult to remove the anchor by hand. You need to apply a significant force using a flat screwdriver to lift the spikes out of the carpet.
The cap, with a 1/2” long, partially threaded post, is designed to work with any common mat thickness or pre-installed grommet height. Its 3/8” post diameter fits most factory installed mat grommets or holes made with a 3/8” hole cutter. If a mat is thin, the end of the cap post can extend below the bottom of the anchor to keep as low profile as possible without compromising the fastening strength.
The anchor has a thread-finding recessed area to make it easier to screw the cap into the anchor.
Tightened with or without the sliding washer, the cap prevents or minimizes the possibility of water getting through the hole.
To remove mats for cleaning, unscrew the cap with your fingers, coin, flat screwdriver or 7/8” socket.
Due to the spike design, there will be no visible holes in the carpet if you have to remove the anchor, making it minimally intrusive…
The sliding washer moves along the unthreaded portion of the cap post to accommodate different mat thicknesses. When the cap is screwed in and tightened, the sliding washer is pushed up against the mat by the elevated portion of the anchor. The washer loosens, but stays on the cap when it is unscrewed.
The sliding washer doesn’t have to be used with hard car floor liners made from rubber or plastic if they are too thick. It’s also not needed for mats with pre-installed grommets.
In an unlikely event that a new anchor needs to be installed in the same place, it can be easily done by rotating the anchor and inserting spikes into the new spots. This is impossible to do with fasteners attached to the carpet at a single-point.
