Does its intended job. I love that it is tested and safe for use with Clek car seats, but I found it to be a bit bulky at the latch sites that made the car seat more difficult to install. I do like how it is affordable despite coming from a luxury brand.

The rubber used is this mat is grippy yet soft and able to mold a but to form of the seat. It does not smell rubbery or would stink up your car, very nice product.
  • Grippy and solid, definitely protects the seat.

The amount of grossness that this mat catches is amazing. Without it, All the food spillage would go right on the seat of my car. This also keeps the car seat from sliding around since it is made of silicone material

mat thingy
August 1, 2021
I bought this to go with my clek foonf in a 2021 Nissan Rogue. I felt the car seat was sliding on the leather seats and would not stay in the proper position for the incline. So far I have not had any problems with it not buckling in as I read in previous reviews and the car seat feels very secure. it doesn't feel like its moving at all. I've had this for about 3 weeks now. Bonus part is that it is also protecting my leather seats. so all around I like it.

Saves your seat
July 19, 2021
Clek products are very heavy so this has saved our seats. Though there is a little residual in-dent when removing it, the seat bounces back without time.

Reordered this product when we had a second child, - as well as, bought another Clek Foonf.

The Clek Mat Thingy is a cool item because it catches food and drink spills and protects the seat of your car from damage caused by the weight of the car seat. It is a cost effective item that will save you money in the long-run. Albee Baby shipped it out immediately and gave great service as always!

We bought our Clek Fllo carseats for many reasons but one of them was the Mat Thingy. There are very few carseats that per the manufacturer guidelines can be installed under a seat (want to see more about that ? I learned about it from @SafeintheSeat. I think she has a highlight about it). It's a nice quality rubber material and it extends over the front of the seat, which is nice.

If I could give it 4.75 stars I would. My only ding is that it's dimensions made it challenging to get to the LATCH anchors in my car (2021 CRV) because it's so wide on the seat. I was able to work around it but I'm not sure if I'd be able to have 3 carseats and 3 mat thingys back there because of it.
  • - Good quality
  • - Protects seat well
  • - Approved for use under Clek carseats
Best Uses
  • - Parents who want to protect interior of vehicle safely
  • - Owners of Clek carseats
  • - Does not protect the seat back in rear-facing kiddos
  • - Made it harder to get at LATCH anchors in my vehicle
  • - Not sure if I can get 3 carseats across in my car with 3 mat thingys

Love the Clek Mat Thingy. It keeps the car clean and avoids the "ruts" in the seat that car seats make. Nice thick quality.
  • Thick material. Quality.
Best Uses
  • To avoid car messes, or make them easier to clean up :)

Must Buy with Clek!
September 24, 2020
Upgraded our Clek car seat to a Clek booster and just got a new car. Decided it was worth investing in a cover for our leather seats. It's a narrow fit like others mentioned and we placed the booster in a smaller backseat, making the buckle a little challenging, but seeing how the weight of the Clek took a toll on previous cars we are eager for this protection. So happy with our Clek investments.

A Must

I had a seat protector for our infant car seat before purchasing the Clek Foonf. The seat thingy puts the last seat protector to shame! It’s a good weight and high quality rubber much like floor mats so it’s hugs the seat and stays in place and it even has a lip around the edged creating a spill reservoir.

This did everything I hoped it would-- catch crumbs/spills and protect my leather seats. It's installed under a Clek Fllo and the whole process only took about 5 minutes. The fit is really secure and the rubber traction is great so I don't worry about extra slipping/sliding.

This mat is great! It protects the car seats from spills, crumbs, and the damage done to the foam due to the pressure of installation. Additionally these are crash tested with Clek seats to ensure safety.
