It is not recommended to put anything between your vehicle seat and car seat and if you must, one layer is the maximum. There are however instances when in installations, I have used drawer shelf liner, cut to fit the car seats bottom, to reduce excess slippage in installs. I can count on one hand the amount of times I have resorted to that however. So in summary, abstain from using that or other similar types of products and if you *must* have a protective barrier (new car and such) use shelf liner at your own risk. There have been instances in hotter climates where shelf liner has melted to the vehicle seat. A simple towel can also add a protective layer.

I'm pretty sure I've heard they're a no no. But I'll wait for a tech to weigh in.

No, they are not safe. You may use a thin towel in a single layer or the grippy shelf liner you'd find in the kitchen section of the department store as long as neither give the illusion of a secure seat when it is in fact not secure.

WHAT?? I don't even want to hear that it is unsafe! I have one under all my carseats. It collects the random milk,juice,food ect and protects my seats.

Seriously if so much crap isn't safe WHY are they selling it:

I really love my car seat mats, so are you guys telling me that I need to ditch them?

They haven't been crash tested. Use a receiving blanket if you need to.
