I got tired of looking at the saggy map pockets already so i found a cheap and easy way to fix them...



this is what we started with
Posted Image


the worn out factory elastic that has been there for the last 27 years
Posted Image



first step was to cut it
Posted Image


taped new elastic to it.
i found that 3/4" is too big and walmart didnt have 1/2" in black
Posted Image


used the old elastic to pull the new elastic into place
Posted Image


here is the old elastic after i pulled it out
Posted Image


i used a small binder clip just to hold the 2 ends together for the next step
Posted Image


stapled it 4 times.... i crossed my staples from opposite sides even though the factory only used 3 staples from the same side
Posted Image


here is the result, i pulled the binder clip off
Posted Image


i pulled it open and you can barely see the white elastic in there, the black was much more noticeable
Posted Image


here is the tan one all finished up
Posted Image


the result on the black one i used for practice ( first pic for comparison)

Importwarrior, i do not mind at all... Figured a walkthrough was a good idea because it struck me as being so easy once i looked at it and i know its a problem everyone in the community has to deal with being that our cars are as old as they are

Awesome!  I bet that would work for other vehicles too.  My little kids are always stuffing their books and homework in the behind the seat pockets many modern cars have and it gets all stretched out.  I'm wondering if the same principle applies.

Great job Demon.
