    Just purchased a replacement leather seat cover for my truck.

    Watched the YT vids, got the seats out, put the new covers on, but for the life of me I can't get the stupid lip to stay put on the front and sides.

    I can fold it over no problem, but I can't hear/feel anything click into place, and it just keeps rolling back up.

    Anyone have any tips for me?

    My lip isn't plastic like OEM, its a hard rubber.

    Figured it out. Had to take a razor blade and split the rubber apart so it could straddle and pinch the metal.

    Before and after shots. Very happy with it.
