What is a custom fit car mat?

Custom ­fit car mats are made to the exact specifications of your vehicle for that make, model and year. We measure every pattern and perfect the fit through an engineering process we have used for over 40 years as supplier to the best vehicles in the world. All of our mats fit the exact contours of your automobile, unlike many other mats whose shapes have been compromised to speed up production.

What holds the mat set in place?

The highest quality OEM standard anti-slip automotive backing on our custom car mats will assist in holding the mats in place. Additionally, for vehicles with retention floor posts over 10mm, grommets are installed to be placed over the floor posts to lock the mat in place. If the floor posts do not exist or are 10mm or less, Mat­Loc clips are included to lock the driver mat in place.

Note: The grommeted holes allow for total interaction of the backing with the floor carpet to efficiently aid in floor mat retention. This is GGBAILEY.com‘s way of providing exceptional floor mat retention.

What is a grommet and do I have one?

Grommets are metal or plastic posts that are usually found in the floor carpet of vehicles. These posts are fastening mechanisms that hold mats in place and they are anywhere from a 1/4 inch (0.64cm) to 1 inch (2.54cm) long. The grommet posts are most often found at the bottom end of floor mats (the end closest to the seat) and sometimes only appear on one or a few of the front mats. If grommets holes are included in a GGBAILEY.com mat, customers will not receive the Mat­-Loc clips in their order.

What is a heelpad?

A heelpad is an additional piece of carpet (8×5 inches US, 270 x 165mm for the European deliveries) that is applied to the driver ­side car floor mat under the driver’s heel area. This is an option not available from most re-sellers, and helps prevent wear and tear on your floor mat.  We offer two heelpad styles: round (not available for European deliveries) and rectangle which are applied with a special finished edge.

What is mat edging?

Mat edging is the finished border around the outside of all mats. At GGBAILEY.com we offer four edging options: Binding, Serging, Reflective and Ribbon. Binding, Reflective and Ribbon provide a smooth fabric edge, while serging is a stitched yarn edge. The difference is personal preference and all are made from the finest quality materials. We offer many colors to choose from.

How are our car mats embroidered and what type of embroidery do we offer?

Our personal embroidery and custom embroidered logos are directly stitched with intricate computer assisted sewing. Multi­colored logos are generally embroidered in the standard colors, but personal embroidery is available in many different color options. You can choose to have names (personal, teams, clubs, businesses, initials, numbers and designated characters) embroidered on both your front driver and passenger mats, as well as trunk and cargo mats.

We can embroider up to 10 characters (including spaces) on each front mat (up to a total of 20 characters on both mats) and up to 10 characters on trunk and cargo mats. Our exclusive logos have been specially designed here at GGBAILEY.com and look stunning on all mats.

How do I care for and clean my mats?

Our carpet utilizes one of the strongest, most durable and trouble­-free carpet fibers available today. When first installed, some pilling may occur because of the new carpet. Brushing or vacuuming the mats should remove these fibers and restore the mats to their original appearance.

To care for your carpets please vacuum regularly and remove spills immediately. Any residential carpet cleaning products may be used (follow manufacturer’s instructions). Also, please note that GGBAILEY.com mats are not designed for machine washing.

How do I care for and clean the Ribbon edging?

To care for your Ribbon edging, gently spot-clean by hand any stains with water and mild soap.

How often should mats be replaced?

Our mats are made from the finest quality materials and are very durable. However, GGBAILEY.com mats can be replaced as often as you like to maintain the interior of your vehicle or you may choose to change the design and color of your mats. Consumers may also choose to have an extra set of mats for special occasions or events.

What if I cannot find mats for my make, model and year?

If you cannot find mats for the make, model or year of your automobile, please send us an email at service@ggbailey.com with your vehicle’s information (including make, model, and year) and we will promptly contact you.

Will the carpet color match my automobile? Is the color on the website what I can expect in person?

GGBAILEY.com carpets are not an exact match to OEM interior carpet but coordinate with most interiors.

Additionally, computer monitors vary in their ability to show color accurately. Even calibrated monitors do not always represent the product color and texture precisely. We make every effort to show accurate color images online, but reproductions may vary from the actual product.

We recommend that you order carpet swatches if you have any concerns about color matching. We will send you 2×3 inch carpet swatches (5 x 7.6 cm in Europe) to assist you in your mat selection. Please click here to order swatches.
