    Just got a set of Wet Okole's for my front seats and rear. Anyway, the rear ones went on easy but I am having some difficulty with the fronts. I got the bottom portion on alright but the backs are tough. I can't figure out how to attach the velcro on the bottom end to the back (basically wrap under the seat to reach the back of the seat back). I can't see how it fits - there is this plastic piece when I try to tuck it under. Hope this makes sense. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :devil:

    get a sheet of plastic, like painters use, cut it so its big enough to drape over the front and back of the seats. Drape it over, put seat cover on (the plastic makes the seat cover slide easier over the surface of the seat) and then pull out the plastic from the back. Repeat process on other side.

    No I can't get it through the seat to attach to the back of the seat.... some plastic piece is in its way.

    the plastic peice hanging from the top of the seat is clipped underneath. Reach below the seat and you will feel two elastic straps clipped anb holding it to the frame, remove them and I guess fold it up under the seat cover.

    I believe that plastic sheet is connected using metal hog clips. Open those up and heat up the plastic a little bit to make it a little more flexible. Then fold it so that it sits against the back of the seat.

    I guess you would have to see them to appreciate, they are the best thing I could have bought for my truck and I got an entire set for about $500. They are custom fit to your seats, I mean super snug with every little detail included for seat belts, air bags, sport seats, child car seat hooks etc. They are made from neoprene ie wet suit material, so clean up is a breeze and never any stains on the original seats. They are great for my dog in the back seat.

    ***AWESOME SOLUTION***

    I read this post right before I got my Okole's in, and didn't really understand what you were talking about.

    GO OUT AND BUY YOURSELF SOME 3M VELCRO TAPE, OR COMPARABLE. Get the width of regular scotch tape.

    1. Remove Seat
    2. Unclip plastic "plastic backing" seat clips from underneath the seat
    3. Install bottoms
    4. Stick the matching velcro for the Okoles to the plastic smooth side of the "plastic backing"
    5. Slide the seat cover over the seat, and velcro the front portion to the velcro tape that you just stuck on the smooth part of the plastic backing (the underneath)
    6. Velco the Okole seat cover to the carpeted back portion of the "plastic backing".
    7. Reclip the "plastic backing", and clip the wet okole's under the seat

    No more funny looking nipples from bending the "plastic backing" up into the Wet Okole seat covers.

    Sorry, no pics. The damn financee had the camera when I was installing them.

    I did the folding up option with mine, after awhile the "funny looking nipples" go away and you can't even tell its under there.

    I heard of them from other TW members. GOOD THING TOO!!! They're are awesome.

    I just got back from a hunting trip. My friend and I were out scouting on the Sunday before, and it was pooring rain out. I new truck not worrying about anything because I had Weathertechs on the floor and Okoles on my seats. I paid about 600 for fronts and rears, but they're worth it.

    This is exactly why people join forums, to figure out what the good shit is for _______.

    I was going to write "lets see the Proof"... but thought that sounded a little perverted..
    Glad to see you have a sense of humor! :D
