DIY Trunk Velcro Mod

As silly as this may sound, all you guys n' gals out there running around with stuff in your trunk will quickly figure out that the carpet just doesn't like to stay in place!

All that stuff slides from side to side any time you turn left or right. When that stuff slides, it slides the entire carpet. I opened my trunk to find my bags all the way on the left side of my trunk and all my carpet bunched up.

Solution?

Velcro.

Talk about easy. Just run out to your local home depot, wal mart, target, etc. and pick up a couple small boxes of velcro. Lift up the carpet and line the bottom edges with the velcro cutting the strips to fit and then stick them the ones on the bottom in place. Take off the top sticky liner and simply drop the carpet in place securing it by pressing down firmly.

Pretty simple.

Cost?...$5.00 for two boxes

Time?...5 min.

I have not had a problem with sliding carpet since...and it just pulls right out if I need to remove the carpet. I know it may sound silly like I already said. But, I don't like my stuff sliding back and forth in the trunk.

I wondered what you were talking about when you said you were velcroing your trunk

I know it doesn't sound like a big deal. But, put stuff back there and take a turn. You'll wish you had the stuff secured in place and the carpet velcro'ed in place. It works.

Yea looking at used ones I noticed the carpet was off. Thought it was wreaked but now I know it's just not secured down. Might could also put some sound dampening material down on the sheep metal too.

I bought the rubber trunk mat for mine. It helps to keep stuff from sliding around and it looks great.

I haven't seen a specialized rubber trunk mat for the Camaro. Is there one? Not a bad idea.

I just put velcro down under the entire mat all the way around. I have not had a problem with it since.

PnC- I ordered one directly from my car dealer. Came in about a week and ran about $125 - can't remember the price exactly. It fits like a glove in the back and is very sound deadening and leakproof. It was the first thing I bought for my car and I'm very glad I did!

ditto. I wish they'd made rubber floor mats too though...you know...for when the weather is bad and you don't want wet/muddy shoes on your car's flooring.

I'll agree to that. Better yet, have them reversible. Carpet on one side and rubber on the other side for that snow/wet weather. Just flip them over for the rainy day and take them out and shake them when done. Clean them up and flip them back over to carpet when sunny weather again.

Damn....I'm a genius....

Thanks LadyinBlue! That's it, then...I'm getting one too. Perfect timing on your response, BTW. My allocation order is going in tomorrow. When the dealer calls me to confirm my options, I'll add the mat. $125 feels like a small price to pay for a bit more of a custom look, some sound deadening, and to keep everything in the trunk from sliding around!

Much appreciated!

This is a really simple solution. I like it. This also wouldn't hurt if you had to secure subwoofer boxes in place to avoid significant moving that could damage the box.
