When you update the interior with new carpet, should the metal button anchor points for the old carpetat be ground off flush?? These things seem useless and dumb under a new carpet kit!!

Thanks for comments and guidance

Mike

What if you wish to add rubber mats to protect the carpet later?

I don't foresee mats that would fasten to these. Mainly because I would have to cut a big button hole in my brand new carpet. I have not see a single carpet install pic in the gallery that has them poking thru. Looking for someone who has installed new carpet to just confirm that they cut the useless things off. I guess I could punch circles out of the carpet padding and just span over the top of the buttons. Just don't know why I would ever want or need them.

The great thing about having mats instead of permanent carpets is that they can be removed to dry things out more quickly and easier, when the KG leaks. Notice I said "when," not "if?" KG's are like submarines and dams: they all leak, and if they didn't, there would be a problem! Laughing

They are for rubber mats not carpet. Leave them, a future owner will be happy you did. Carpet goes under.

Put some padding with the hole cut for the mat then put the carpet on top of the padding so the carpet lays flush, no need to put a hole in the carpet and you get to keep the pins for later use if needed.
