How can I protect my leather seats from being damaged by my children’s car seats?
I just purchased a new vehicle and I’m concerned my children’s car seats are going to damage the leather seats. How can I protect the leather from the car seats?
Leather seats can be expensive to repair or reupholster, so protecting them is a great way to extend their life and keep them looking brand new.
Children’s car seats can damage the leather over time, but luckily there are a few ways to protect them by:
- Installing seat protectors (generic or specifically tailored for your vehicle)
- Laying out a mat or a towel
- Removing the car seat and conditioning the leather when the seat is not in use
There are many styles of seat protectors, and investing in a style that has additional pockets may make it easier to keep track of your children’s items and ensure nothing is lost under the seats or left behind.
When thinking about driving around with your children, you should also think about your car insurance and make sure you, your children, and your vehicle have all the coverage you need.
