What the FAQ?
They always said there’s no such thing as a stupid question, so ask away! If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, hit us up via the contact page and we’ll be all over your questions.
Here are a few common questions to get the brain juices percolating. If you think of something else, we’re standing by and ready.
How long do the covers take to install?
It depends! For a beginner, a bucket set (driver and passenger seats) will take around an hour. Once you get the hang of it, it will take 20 – 30 minutes. Rear seats are about the same, 40/20/40 fronts take a little longer.
Do they block the airbags in the seat?
No. Nope. Uh-uh. We make dang sure you’re as safe as possible. Rather than cover the airbags up or leaving a gaping hole for them to deploy from, we’ve created a safe, good-looking solution. We use a special thread in the airbag area that allows the airbag to come through the cover when it deploys.
Are they washable?
For sure. Take the covers off, dump them in your washing machine, and say adios to the grease, dirt, and Potato Olés that have found their way into the cover. General care instructions:
- In most cases dirt, debris, spills and pet hair can be removed by wiping with a damp cloth.
- Seat covers can be removed and machine washed on low-temperature setting using a mild detergent.
- Drip dry or machine tumble dry on a no heat cycle.
- Straps should be coiled and secured with rubber bands for machine washing and drying.
- Soil may be removed with spray cleaner or detergent and water.
- Do not use bleach.
What about waterproof?
We prefer the term water resistant (We aren’t allowed to say waterproof because sewing makes tiny needle holes). They’re also coffee, soda, and motor oil resistant. If you spill something, you can wipe it off and move on without worrying about who is going to shampoo your seat.
Are TigerTough seat covers a universal fit?
Nope. We’re pretty proud of our custom fit. Each cover is designed to be make, model, and year specific. If you need help figuring out what cover you need, you can get that here.
What color can I get?
While Henry Ford was cool with only offering black, we thought it was nicer to offer more options. You can get black, gray, tan, and four different camos.
How much do they cost?
It depends on what your dealer is selling them for, but MSRP is between $182 and $379 depending on what seat configuration and fabric you get.
Do you make headrest covers?
If your vehicle has headrests, we cover them. Headrest covers are always included with TigerTough seat covers.
The exception to this is if your vehicle has Active Headrests or an Active Headrest Restraint System. You can’t cover those or the headrest won’t function like it is supposed to in the case of an accident.
What fabric are they made from?
Our IronweaveTM and Tactical seat covers are made from 1000 denier Cordura®️ fabric that has a custom urethane coating and a waterproof coating. The SportweaveTM covers are made from 900 denier fabric with the same coatings.
What is your warranty?
The TigerTough warranty is a two year, unconditional, no BS warranty. If you break it, we’ll fix or replace it. If you need more details, they’re here.
How long do they last?
We guarantee them for two years! How long they’re going to last is hard to answer though. It depends if your vehicle is your weekend baby or if it is a police car that’s on the road 24/7. They’re going to last a long time.
What vehicles do you cover?
Well, since fleet vehicles are our specialty, we cover all the common fleet trucks and vans. We also cover all the usual police vehicles. We don’t make covers for tractors, UTVs, or construction equipment yet. To find out if we make a cover for your vehicle, look it up here. If it’s older than 2010, give us a call at 507.246.3545
