Golf Cart Seat Covers

When you are in the market to purchase golf cart seat covers, you need to consider several factors. You will need to find a reputable dealer that sells golf cart seat covers.

A specialized dealer will have access to a higher quality supplier and a greater variety of materials.

There are Universal Fit Seat Covers, but you should still verify with the dealer that your particular model can use this product. Upholstery needs to do more for you than just look good. The upholstery needs to be durable and look good. You should shop around until you find a high quality selection of fabrics in a variety of styles.

You should ask the dealer that you are using how much foam backing they will use on the golf cart seat covers. Foam backing is important for added comfort. A comfortable seat will be more enjoyable.

When you have made all of your decisions and have bought your golf cart seat covers, you will need to prepare your golf cart for installation.

An "S" hook should be provided with your golf cart seat cover and you should fasten the elastic straps under seat with supplied "S" hooks. Tie the supplied cord in position to ensure that the seat cover is held in shape. With a razor blade, cut small holes for your headrest or latches only after the golf cart seat cover is completely installed. After the holes are made, re-insert the headrest into your seat.

To maintain the quality of your golf cart seat covers, periodic and timely maintenance is required. Liquid stains should be allowed to dry and then cleaned with a sponge and a common household detergent. Dirty oil and grease stains should be first spot cleaned with a cleaning fluid containing Naptha to remove the solvent soluble matter. Any stain residue should be cleaned by an upholstery or rug shampoo.

It is always best to use a carpet cleaner on the Seat Cover while it is on the seat. That way you will avoid unnecessarily taking your golf cart seat covers off and on the seat. Always read the instructions carefully before cleaning any seat cover fabric to make sure that it is compatible with the fabric being cleaned.

Your golf cart seat covers dealer will let you know the fabric type at time of purchase. Even though manufacturer instructions are pretty clear about what fabrics can and cannot be cleaned with their product, always clean or test a small area of your golf cart seat covers before applying large amounts of cleaner.
