Leather seat protector?

I just got a car with leather seats and my BIL says that the car seat will actually cut the seat and that I should get a seat protector thing? Is that true or does he not know what he is talking about? Are those seat protectors even safe?

He does not know what he's talking about.

A seat protector is an after market product and a horrible one to boot. It gives a false sense of a tight install.

I have leather seats - my DD has had her Marathon installed RFing, in the center seat for 1.5 years. There are marks, for sure, but they go away when the seat isn't there for a while (like when we visit family out of state and the car seat is with us and not in the car).

I too have leather seats, & have switched the seat back & forth & the marks go away! For one reason or another I end up switching it every 6 mos- a year, & its always good.

Don't use the seat protectors. They can compress during an accident and cause the seat to be loose. My DH and I both have leather and no obvious damage to our seats at all.

You'll move the seat and think we were all crazy idiots, but the marks WILL GO AWAY!
