    I just got my Coverking Neoprene Seat Covers from Costco.
    I'm having the same problem as LATACOMAGUY.

    http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2n...-seat-cover-100-off-costco-2.html#post3382043

    I have a 2011 Double Cab TRD Off-road.

    Here are some images:

    These are the flaps that are supposed to tuck through:
    [​IMG]

    This is the back of the seat, no place to tuck the flaps through:
    [​IMG]

    Looking from the front, this is all the junk under the seat:
    [​IMG]

    Before I just take them back to Costco, I thought I'd post and see if anyone has done this and can tell me how these are supposed to go on.
    The "instructions" are not helpful to me at all.

    Are other seat covers easier to get on?

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Thanks, Dave

    If I remember right on my 2009 bench seat it has a plastic cover (not fabric like the bucket seats) but the same kind of thing as yours. You undo the flap, install your covers and put the flap back on.

    On mine I don't recall how the flap was attached but I'm almost 100% sure it involved no tool of any kind and took like a couple seconds.

    That pic looks like the passenger seat? My 09 has the flat folding passenger seat option so it didn't have the flap and was fairly easy to put on.

    For the drivers seat, I believe that flap is just hooked on to something on the bottom of the seat. Just need to unhook it. I got the rear and passenger seat done and plan to put the driver seat cover either Friday or Saturday. If you can hold on until then, I can post a follow up in this thread. Oh btw, I also got the coverkings from Costco.

    Thanks, I'll hang on.

    The carpet "flap" appears to be held on underneath with some "cords" attached to the seat. But I didn't see how taking these cords off would help.

    There's got to be a way, I'm just not seeing it.

    Thanks, Dave

    I think those cords are made of a bungee cord kind of material?? If so, they probablly have a loop at one end and that loop goes around a button kind of tab.

    Just feel around and you will find it.

    That's what she said!!!!!!!!!

    I'm old enough to be Joe Dirt's Grandfather. I was using that joke at work for a while to drive somebody nuts because it's sooooo old.

    In reality I belong in one of those 40 something, youngins GTF out kind of threads.

    Yeah, I had the same problem. Not really a problem though. Undo the carpet thing under the seat (I think I ended up cutting the bungee thing, if I ever put it back I use a piece of rubber band or so to attach it). Then, fold back that whole carpet piece all the way until it is flat against the seat back (the back side of the seat back). Then put the cover over it.
    With the cover installed, you can't put that carpet piece back, it won't work (as you discovered), but that does not matter, the covers fit perfectly over that piece folded back all the way.

    The same for the Wet Okoles.
    You have to undo the flap clips & fold the carpeted piece under itself not to impede the new fastener system on the new seat covers.

    Ok, just put the seat cover on the the driver side today and here are some pics that I took during the installation.

    Here's how the hooks from the flap looks like when I unhooked them from under the seat:



    Put on the bottom portion of the seat cover where I pulled it through but didn't put the straps on yet:


    This is the flap where I folded it up against itself and have the top portion of the seat cover partially over it:



    So the seat cover is over the flap now and have pulled the seat cover through but haven't velcro'd them together yet:



    Here's the finished product:



    Let me know if anybody needs specific pics of an area.

    Fit and finish was pretty good. $300 for these Coverkings vs. $500+ for the Wet Okoles, I'd get these any day.

    Thanks. So did you keep it or did you return it?

    The pictures showed how to do it, but I decided to take them back.
    I'm not ready to bend or fold anything on my brand new truck yet.

    I think I'll do like my old truck. Put them on at 8 years when the seats look bad, and sell the truck at 15 when no one cares how the seats look. ;)

    The pictures are a great guide for everyone out there like me.
    I just couldn't figure it out on my own.

    Thanks again.

    Dave
