Our seat covers go through a rigorous design process to ensure they not only offer a tailored fit to your specific seat design, but they are also designed to be as simple as possible to fit. Let’s help get you ready for your #blackduckadventure!
We recommend unpacking each seat separately to avoid mixing up the driver, passenger and rear seat parts. Remove the covers from the packaging and lay them out to check that you have all the correct parts.
You should have:
- Seat base
- Backrest (sometimes base and back are attached)
- Armrest (if applicable)
- Each piece is identified on the inside with a white label. On the Driver and Passenger seat label, there will be a ‘DR’ to indicate Driver and a ‘PA’ to indicate Passenger. If you have seat fitted air-bags, the teal AIRBAG label will go on the outside/window side of the seat
- Vacuum your original seats and remove anything from the seat pockets.
Fitting the seat base:
- Slide the cover over the seat base, ensuring it is clear from any levers and buttons, line up the seams of the cover to the seams of the seat and massage into place
- Once the cover is in line with the seams of the seat, push the centre flap through the seat base until you can see it pop out the back of your seat. (In some models you may need to detach the carpet on the back of your seat to allow access)
- Pull the side flaps around and attach to the centre flap. Check to make sure none of the seat's levers and buttons is obstructed
- If included in the seat cover design, pull straps under the seat, clearing all tracks and fittings. Pull tight and fasten to the opposite side – test movement of seat to ensure nothing is obstructed
- Seat base fitting complete
Fitting the backrest:
- Remove headrest (if applicable)
- Slide cover over the top (like a jumper), make sure the back of the cover does not catch in the pocket on the back
- Line up the seams of the cover to the seams of the seat and massage into place
- Push the flap through the base of the seat, just like you did with the base
- Pull through tight and attach to the back of the seat
- Slide the headrest cover over the headrest with the label on the front and secure the flaps. This is designed to be a tight fit so make sure you have the seams lined up
- Replace the headrest.
- Backrest fitting complete
Repeat this process for the passenger seat and rear seats.
Once you have had your covers for a couple of weeks, we advise that you re-tension them as they will mould to the shape of your seat over time. This will leave you with the best fit possible.
Only Black Duck SeatCovers that are labelled as being air-bag compatible are to be fitted to vehicles with seat fitted air-bags. Black Duck SeatCovers must not be fitted to seats containing side-impact airbag components unless they are the correct seat covers with the appropriate certification. Black Duck SeatCovers accepts no responsibility or liability if this warning is not adhered to.
Our heavy-duty canvas seat covers are developed specifically for applications that require a hard-wearing and durable product. Black Duck SeatCovers has been a staple in vehicle fleets for over 35 years across a number of industries such as;
- Mining and Resources
- Construction and Trades
- Public Services
- Recreational and 4WD
Our canvas' tensile strength and tear resistance are tested across both directions of the material. This means that the material your Black Duck canvas seat covers are manufactured from is a high-quality, Australian made material with proven durability and stress metrics.
To achieve its water resistance, Black Duck heavy-duty canvas utilises a proofing treatment method where the material is immersed into a proprietary waterproofing solution which is squeezed into the fibres. This ensures that the material is both water-resistant and breathable as the surface is not simply sealed by the coating material. The material is allowed to breathe, making it not only comfortable throughout the Australian climate, but also resistant to rot and mildew.
We currently have patterns to suit a wide range of vehicles and all patterns are tailored to fit each specific seat design. This ensures all safety features and functionality of the seat is retained, including armrests, cup holders, levers and adjusters. The tailored fit, specific to each vehicles' seat design, also ensures that minimal dust and dirt reaches the original seat. Your seats are one of the first areas of your vehicle that starts showing signs of wear and tear, so keeping these protected can have a positive impact on your vehicle's resale value when it comes time to trade it in.
The Black Duck range of air-bag compatible seat covers is dynamically tested and certified to ensure Vehicle Standard Australian Design Rule 72/00 (Dynamic Side Impact Occupant Protection 2005) is not adversely affected. We use advanced manufacturing techniques which allow the required air-bag release in the event of an accident, without compromising the safety of the occupants of the vehicle.
