How to Buy a Good Quality Seat Gap Trap

How many times have you dropped an item in that gap between the seats, only to find yourself blindly waving around under the seat trying to find the item? For this exact reason, seat gap traps were created. These handy little items, also called seat gap fillers, do exactly that – fill up the space so you can’t drop items.

A seat gap trap fits snuggly between your car seat and the center console. It fills in the extra space, effectively eliminating the possibility of dropping things into the gap. Some things to keep in mind when getting a seat gap trap include:

  • Size: Seat gap traps can be bought in various sizes in order to fit your car perfectly.

  • Additional features: Some of these seat gap traps come with added features such as built in pockets to store items.

  • Color and material: They also come in a variety of colors, and materials so that you can find one that fits your tastes, and of course your budget. Look for a heavy duty material or a cloth with a tight weave.

  • Ease of installation: Examine the packaging well to see how easy it is to install, if it will fit snugly or still leave a gap, and how it will hold up over time.

The seat gap trap was developed to stop items from falling down that annoying little gap between the car seat and center console.
