Heated and Air Conditioned/Cooled Seats

Ruff Tuff seat covers may impact the performance of heated and air-conditioned seats. While there is a minimal difference in heated seats, the impact is much more noticeable in air-conditioned seats.

Seat-Mounted Airbags

Warning: You must not obstruct the deployment of the impact airbags. If your seat has airbags and your seat cover has not been properly modified either with velcro or a cutout, DO NOT INSTALL this custom seat cover. It could interfere with the deployment of the airbags. Please call the company at 800-453-8830 for more information. We will make the necessary modifications to accommodate the airbags in your custom seat covers.
Warning: The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration recommends that passengers under the age of 12 not travel in the front seat of motor vehicle.

The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration also requires new light-duty vehicles to be equipped with advanced airbag sensors that detect a front passenger’s body weight. In case of a frontal crash, if a front passenger’s body weight is less than 70 pounds, a sensor deactivates airbag deployment to avoid causing death or serious injury that may result from the force of an airbag deployment.

The extra weight of an aftermarket seat cover may be detected by an advanced airbag sensor as part of a passenger’s body weight. This extra weight could cause an airbag to deploy in case of a frontal crash if a person’s body weight is slightly less than 70 pounds because the sensor may add the aftermarket seat cover’s weight to that of the passenger and thus assume that a front passenger’s body weight is actually more than 70 pounds. A front passenger airbag may cause death or serious injury to a person who weighs less than 70 pounds.
