Clazzio seat cover install question

I am installing my seat covers and have a question for those that have them.
On the driver's seat, it says in the directions to remove the part of the original seat that attaches to the bottom with the rubber band things. Then, it says to tuck it in the back of the seat.

I sure as heck can't find a way to tuck it in because it's hard plastic!

I left mine on but, unhooked the bottom so I can run the seat warmer cables to the side easier. The Clazzio has new hooks so I put them together and rehooked to the bottom of the seat.

Ok--yeah, I figured it out. they want you to tuck it in between the clazzio and the original seat. It kind of leaves a buldge.

I will tomorrow. It got dark really quick and I finished just in time. I was planning on finishing tomorrow morning, but went ahead and completed it tonight.

It turned out pretty well! I took my time and it took me about 2.5 hours to install. I took a 5 min break here and there included in the time.

One thing that i don't like about them is--they go over the hard plastic panel on the backs of the rear seats. I may look and see if I can take the backs off and reinstall over them.

Here's some pics. On the back of the drivers seat--you can see some buldges--I think I'll put something in there to take care of that. On the back seat, the cover goes over the hard plastic backing--I still need to pull mne down because it's getting caught on the latch--the hole is not lined up and it will eventually tear it. It even has a thread coming out and I've only closed it down a handful of times.

It looks great, though! I'm pretty happy with the covers.

I'm pretty happy with them. After letting the truck sit out in the sun, I was able to pull the back seat cover down a bit to make the latch hole line up. We'll see if it stays there.
