Toyota Tacoma Bed Mat Review
Toyota Tacoma Bed Mat FAQ
A bed mat is crucial for truck bed protection when transporting tools and other stuff that might damage the bed. Besides, they prevent cargo from sliding. High-quality mats are waterproof, resistant to stains and chemical. That’s why they can be used even if there is no camper shell on the bed.
Usually, bad mats vary in size and shape. If looking for the Toyota Tacoma bed mat, for example, it’s possible to buy the unit according to the specific dimensions of the truck bed.
The mat’s installation doesn’t require any tools. However, they can be made of different materials (polypropylene, rubber, or plastic) that mean some differences in installation. So how to place the polypropylene units?
– First, unroll the mat when taking it out of the box and face it down on a clean surface.
– Take double-sided tape and stick its two segments on both sides of the mat.
– Get the upper layer of the strip off and put the mat in the truck.
– Set the mat in place and push it down.
Before installation, check your bed for wetness, debris, dust, etc. to make sure it’s completely clean and dry. Otherwise, the adhesive won’t hold the mat for a long time. To provide better adhesion with the tape, clean with alcohol the areas where the tape will be stuck to a truck bed.
Plastic mats also need double-sided tape (some manufacturers include hook and loop fasteners in the package) to be set. Rubber mats don’t need any tapes since their back area is ribbed or it has cleats to make the mat non-slip.
