How to Install a Cargo Liner in Four Steps

Loading and unloading various kinds of stuff on your vehicle could mess up your cargo area. Securing it with a good and durable cargo liner will keep it from all kinds of dirt and substances that could damage it. Cargo liners are available for all types of vehicles-may it be a sedan, an SUV, or a van. There are custom-fit liners for the specific make, model, and year of your vehicle to ensure that it will cover the area entirely. Here's a four-step guide on how to install a cargo liner on your vehicle in 30 minutes:

Required skill level: Intermediate

Needed tools and materials:

  • Clean cloth

  • Cleanser

  • Screwdriver set

  • Velcro pads and strips

  • Cargo liner
  • Preparing for installation

    Clean the cargo area thoroughly with mild cleanser and water and let it dry. This helps in keeping the cargo liner more durable.

    Assembling the cargo liner

    Before removing the affected parts of your cargo area, it is best to assemble the cargo liner first instead of doing this while you are inside the vehicle. Attach the Velcro strips and pads to their respective locations. There are usually 15 pads that you need to attach to the external area of the cargo liner and two strips on its two opposite sides facing up.

    Removing the parts

    Now that the cargo liner is ready to be installed, remove the tonneau cover and the headrests of your vehicle's second row seats. Fold the seats and install the cargo liner.

    Installing the cargo liner

    Insert the tabs to their respective places. Secure the liner's edges to the cargo area floor lid and attach the Velcro strips and pads one by one firmly into place. Make sure that they are aligned.

    Tips and warnings

    • Using alcohol wipes, clean the areas where the Velcro strips and pads will be attached before setting them. This is to ensure that they will strongly hold the cargo liner in place for a longer time.

    • Once installed, keep the cargo liner clean and spotless by scrubbing it with mild detergent on a soft cloth. Wipe it dry afterwards.

    • Husky Liners vs. Weathertech: Search for the Best Cargo Liner 26 February 2013

      Durability, easy maintenance, and value for money-these are just some of the characteristics of a good cargo liner that you should be looking for. Husky Liners and Weathertech, two of the brands that offer the widest array of cargo liners, have taken the challenge of getting head-to-head to know which brand offers the best and the most durable cargo liner there is. Here's our report:


      Color and finish

      The color swatches of cargo liners offered by Weathertech and Husky Liners are almost the same. Both brands have gray, black, and tan cargo liners that can blend perfectly to your car's interiors.

      WINNER: Weathertech and Husky Liners


      Material

      Weathertech cargo liners are made of thermoplastic polyolefin, a material that is known to last even when exposed to UV radiation. It is said to be both wear- and weather-resistant. Husky Liners, on the other hand, manufactures rubber cargo liners that boast of its non-slippery surface that prevents cargo shifting. This material is resistant to almost all kinds of substances, such as water, mud, snow, and even oil. It is also guaranteed to last without cracking or breaking.

      WINNER: Husky Liners


      Warranty

      If upon installation or months of use, your cargo liner wears out, Weathertech offers a three-year limited warranty for it. However, Husky Liners generously covers their cargo liners with a lifetime warranty.

      WINNER: Husky Liners


      Price

      In terms of price, for only $80, you can already avail a piece of Husky Liners' rubber cargo liner that is backed by a lifetime warranty. A Weathertech cargo liner, on the other hand, costs around $100 and above.

      WINNER: Husky Liners


      The verdict

      Although both brands offer several options that could help you choose the best cargo liner for your vehicle, apparently, Husky Liners has proven that it is durable, easy to maintain, and affordable. However, you still have the final say to which brand you will award as the best cargo liner.
