Ford Escape: Positive Retention Floor Mat
WARNING: Always use floor mats that are designed to fit the foot well of your vehicle.
Only use floor mats that leave the
pedal area unobstructed. Only use
floor mats that are firmly secured
to retention posts so that they
cannot slip out of position and
interfere with the pedals or impair
safe operation of your vehicle in
вЂў Pedals that cannot move freely can cause loss of vehicle control and increase the risk of serious personal injury.
вЂў Always make sure that the floor mats are properly attached to the retention posts in the carpet that are supplied with your vehicle.
Floor mats must be properly secured to both retention posts to ensure mats do not shift out of position.
вЂў Never place floor mats or any other covering in the vehicle foot well that cannot be properly secured to prevent them from moving and interfering with the pedals or the ability to control the vehicle.
вЂў Never place floor mats or any other covering on top of already installed floor mats. Floor mats should always rest on top of vehicle carpeting surface and not another floor mat or other covering.
Additional floor mats or any other covering will reduce the pedal clearance and potentially interfere with pedal operation.
вЂў Check attachment of floor mats on a regular basis. Always properly reinstall and secure floor mats that have been removed for cleaning or replacement.
вЂў Always make sure that objects cannot fall into the driver foot well while the vehicle is moving. Objects that are loose can become trapped under the pedals causing a loss of vehicle control.
вЂў Failure to properly follow floor mat installation or attachment instructions can potentially cause interference with pedal operation causing loss of control of vehicle.
вЂў To install floor mats, position the floor mat so that the eyelet is over the retention post and press down to lock in.
вЂў To remove the floor mat, reverse the installation procedure.
