Hey, do you have pictures of what you mean? Are you talking about relief cuts in the edging of the mats to allow it to bend up without binding the edges of the mat?

(yes, I realize this is an old thread, thought I'd bump rather than create new)

I went out to the truck to take that picture and discovered that I didn't cut the rubber OEM floor mats after all. I just plunked the lock box down on top of the floor mat and called it good. It's worked fine ever since - the seat locks down as designed.

ok thanks.

I'd like to be able to remove and clean those rear mats easily since I'll probably have the kiddos back there a lot in the winter.

Someone mentioned possibly trying spacers under the Tuffy box to keep it off the floor a bit. I'm about to buy one of these, I might have to just wing it and see if I can get spacers to work.

I got my tuffy installed today and used spacers to keep the front lip of the box up off the mats enough that they can be removed.

Even with the spacers, the size of the mat makes it a PITA to install and remove with the box in there. It still might even be easier to remove the box to take the floor mat in and out... but at least this way we have options right?

You'll need a 5/8" tall spacer and a M8 1.25 pitch 40mm long bolt.

The bracket on the passenger side of the box is already adjustable so you can simply mount it higher up to make more room for the mat underneath

Here is the spacer in place and the new bolt compared to the bolt that came with the tuffy box:
