    I'm probably the only knucklehead here that didn't already know this,but.....One of my pet peeves has been when I use the fold flat feature of my DC back seats,I often forget to hold up the female end of the seat belts so they are accessible the next time I have passengers back there.Usually it's my three kids and as we're getting ready to pull out of the driveway and I ask"everybody buckled?" I hear"I can't find my seatbelt".Then we have to empty out of the truck while I fold the seats forward and fish out everyones buckle.:mad:(mad at self).

    Well today,while vacuming the back seat after a particularily messy donut eating session back there,I discovered little pockets at the bottom of the seat backs I presume are designed to hold the buckles while you fold the seats....While stowed there,you can fold the seats up and down and they stay put,and also,they prevent the buckle from getting lost in the cracks when not in use.:)

    Again,I'm likely the last Taco owner to discover this,but I was so pleased at my discovery that I had to share.:eek:

    I have just the opposite problem. I tuck mine in the pockets and people are always complaining that they can't find them. I won't have that option any longer though. I've got my seat covers coming in soon!

    I have used both of them and no good news at all, even there is difficult to close the seat belt male connector against the female this last one is not rigid and most of the time get stucked in middle of the seats.

    Thanks for posting this, squad314!

    Yeah my dealer showed me those pockets too. Mine however are covered up by my Wet Okole seat covers these days. It's amazing though that when I do have people in my back seat, almost all of them complain when the seat belt receiver is lost between the cushions and ask what they should do. It reminds me of that line from the begining of Old School. I always say quote "I recommend you stop being such a faggot, you're in the backseat!"

    i knew about those, but i felt pretty stupid when (after owning my truck for 6 months) i discovered how the headrests are kept in those little holes when the seats are folded down. i got all pissed off because i would have to let them slide around in the back and fall on the ground when i opened the back door.

    I just ran out to my truck to check...holy cow...never knew that. I did know about the head-rests.

    It's the little things that excite me. Thanks!
