I agreed this si the one short coming of the Tuxmats. Also Volvo has a wide tunnel there so the space was already limited. I took the hook side of the Velcro and put like 4 of them right along that area on the Tuxmat and let it hook to the Volvo carpet. I think it is holding I need to look. If it is not holding well then superglue idea is sweet. I also have some stranger 2 inch Velvro roll I can use thos larger hook strips and try.
