Seat covers make sense, especially when carrying animals and / or young children!


This set of Walser seat covers has been designed to provide a very good fit to the widest selection of cars, using a smart velours centre panel with a high quality stretch fabric on the sides and back; detailed specifications are shown below.

  • The headrest mountings are another Walser patent, allowing you to choose the positioning of the headrest posts without damaging the seat covers.
  • 3 year guarantee.
  • Check out the image above for washing instructions.

Walser is a global player in the car seat covers market, an Austrian brand which is highly respected in the auto industry for its intelligent designs, good quality and, above all, innovation. The most significant innovation in these seat covers is Walser's patented "CLIX III docu-sewing-system" which emulates the airbag stitching found in the seat itself and, subject to approval, permits the seat covers to be used on vehicles with side airbags in the front seats. Almost every new car and seat combination has been fitted with Walser's CLIX III covers and then tested and approved by the German TÜV - an expensive process for Walser but where safety is at stake there are no shortcuts. For more information about Walser, and about CLIX III safety, please see the separate tabs.

Check out the video to see how easy they are to fit.

Summary: Good looking and comfortable side-airbag-compatible seat covers that are easily fitted and removed.



These seat covers will not fit if your vehicle has fixed headrests, i.e. you cannot remove the headrests.

Walser, based in Austria, is Europe’s seat cover specialist. They have offices on several continents, have an ongoing commitment to R&D, a reputation for innovation, and they keep tight control of materials and production by having their own factories.

They have a wide range of smart designs, and use high quality technical fabrics, but what really makes Walser stand out from the crowd is their patented “CLIX III” technology side airbag system which allows their seat covers to be used on cars with side airbags. All the Walser fabric seat covers that we sell have this system.

Walser use the German TÜV to test and approve a CLIX III seat cover on every mainstream vehicle seat type; this is a very substantial ongoing investment, but is fundamental to their success.

Walser tell us that other seat cover side airbag systems, usually Velcro or elastic straps, either do not work or are very unreliable. Some manufacturers leave a gap down the side of the seats - this is a good solution for the air bags, but creates a poor fit for the seat covers. The core message is that side airbags are crucial to passenger safety, and that Walser’s solution is both reliable and unique. There’s more detail about CLIX III safety on a separate tab.

Walser Clix Airbag

Side airbags are crucial to modern vehicle safety. Approximately one in four accidents is a side collision, but the probability of serious injury and death is twice as high as it is with front or rear collisions, due to the narrow space between the passengers and the doors. Side airbags must work as designed, and not be impeded by e.g. elastic straps or Velcro fastenings. The sensors will trigger the airbag 5 ms (5 thousands of a second) after a crash. 10 ms later the airbag is fully inflated, just in time to protect the passenger who will hit the airbag 10 ms after full inflation. After another 15 ms the bag starts to deflate. [Source, Walser marketing literature]

The CLIX III docu-sewing-system emulates the seam in side airbag seats. Computer controlled equipment measures the thread tension, the thread denier, the thread composition and the stitch length, and if all is well it generates a unique code that is stitched into the front seat covers. Walser record these codes. Customers may return their registration document to Walser who will match up the code to check that the seat cover is a genuine Walser product. (We do of course purchase all the Walser seat covers we sell direct from Walser!) Walser's TUV approved system

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our Standard two to four day service is £6.50 (£11.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Express Delivery (one or two days) is £9.50 (£14.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (courier, usually Express Delivery).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Express Delivery need to be received by 2pm.

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday.

What about Next Working Day delivery? 
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express Delivery’.  Many Express Delivery orders will arrive on the next working day, but some will arrive on the second working day, or be split between these two days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can, and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, all courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
