Not designed for Volvo's
on 2 September 2015
The product is divided into two parts: the back rest and the seat. This is to allow you to use the seating bit for baby car seats and booster seats which don't necessarily mark the seat back rest.
For those needing the back rest protection, this can be velcro'd to the seat section.
The base / seat section is firm but not solid. It is wide and tapers upward slightly at the sides. The area is more than enough for all car seats that I'm aware of so no issues there and the chance of dents appearing in the leather of the car seat is very unlikely.
I bought this for my new volvo xc60 which has turned me into an obsessive, shouting father should my 3 and 5 year olds so much as look at the leather. But with this seat protector I'm slightly more relaxed.
The downside is that the bit at the top of the back seat rest section is supposed to be kept in place by pushing the back headrest down and that will secture the item in place.
However, a Volvo's head rests don't do this and so the back rest bit can't be firmly secured in place and I have to rely on the pressure of the child seat pushing against the back seat. This bit needs re-thinking as it is a tad annoying to realise the item can't be used correctly and as intended.
That said, it's in place and protecting my new car's leather seats.
