    ¡Hola! I came across this solution from several different sources and added my two cents to it too, so gracias to all of the contributors. I figured a write up may be helpful to others too, so my apologies if another exists previously.

    While I think this could work for any floor mat of standard thickness that lends space for hole perforation, I used my current, fairly new passenger WeatherTech floor mat. I know the WeatherTech floor mats are a Love/Hate for most but I will keep mine until they eventually wear out. So this is what I did to help the pesky passenger side floor mat from sliding and the following parts were used:

    58694-76010 - Floor Mat Retainer Upper

    58698-76010 - Floor Mat Retainer Lower

    OEM Oval Floor Mat Clips


    https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-GENUIN...ING-CLAMPS-4PCS/171842317970?epid=14013360121


    One more advance apology, I inadvertently deleted some of the photos I intended to save (thought I had saved) for this write up...

    Start by placing the passenger floor mat in the desired location. Followed by taking one of the “OEM Oval Floor Mat Clips” upper pieces and selecting the best place on the floor mat to place it. The arrows were placed vertically to match the driver’s side floor mat.

    5DF4E54C-5B4B-496E-A47B-4F7C4B9BCBB1.jpg

    CEBA45F0-DBE6-405F-BE65-A84F6890B636.jpg

    Using a pen or Sharpie, trace the inside oval and around the outside rounded square. The “rounded square” is the reverse side that will protrude through the floor mat.

    With a sharp knife, carefully cut inside the traced lines, as to ensure a snug fit between the floor mat and the OEM Oval Floor Mat Clip.

    66D67D1D-2AD1-45AC-A298-5BB6D656185A.jpg


    The cut hole will allow for the upper OEM Oval Floor Mat Clip upper piece to fit through. Make sure to snug up the floor mat to seat the upper piece flange.

    F3D13694-04C7-47DA-A5ED-0C7B4FB5FB58.jpg

    Now take one of the OEM Oval Floor Mat Clip lower pieces and align the diagonal arrows with the reverse side of the upper arrows and then firmly press the upper and lower OEM Oval Floor Mat pieces together.

    0E390ABD-0FB6-4550-9F94-F35A501E2074.jpg

    Repeat the process for the other floor mat clip.

    3E3120C1-FCDA-4060-AF6A-2E4EE3F215B5.jpg

    Use a scrap piece of copy paper or light weight cardboard to make a quick template for the twist latching “Upper Floor Mat Retainer: 58694-76010”.

    6D63AE1C-813D-4EA6-818D-2BE6CF2BA5F0.jpg

    13CCEEC1-B3EF-4060-A6B6-386E3296E8BD.jpg

    The grip spikes are used to easily pierce the copy paper. With light pressure, mat around the rectangular like clips to form a general indentation of the area to clip out.

    16EF1554-7C2B-4205-B58B-D53FB1907B93.jpg

    Now it is time to remove each the passenger side kick panel and passenger scuff plate. There are plenty of threads on here to review on how to accomplish this.

    This allows for access to place the “Lower Floor Mat Retainer: 58698-76010” by gently pulling up on the carpet enough to gain a forearm’s reach. More on this in the upcoming steps.

    74E46AED-FADF-4036-9EEA-9982E6CDE8B6.jpg

    Make sure the floor mat is still where you would like it to remain. Start with the corner of the floor mat closest to center console to work on first.

    Purposely place the “Upper 58694-76010” on your template in one hand while using the other to gently lift up the floor mat corner enough to set the “Upper 58694-76010”, with template, to align properly with the oval opening of the floor mat when gently setting back down onto the carpet.

    (Lo siento, lost pic)

    Remove the floor mat completely while being careful not to disturb the template placement. Next remove the “Upper 58694-76010” off of the template. Now with the template remaining, take a sharp knife and cut out the rectangular shape. The cuts should be shallow and done with care as to not have the blade contact the floor board. This is primarily to preserve the knife’s blade more than the floor board.

    If the truck is stock, then generally there is relatively no chance of cutting into wiring or the like. However, be assertive, as only YOU can be sure of what is underneath the carpet area! There was absolutely nothing under mine but some small padding on the underside of the carpeting that was of no consequence.

    5EDA8E63-053D-4432-874A-6B13B0D9818D.jpg

    The initial cuts that were made were a tad bit too small. Therefore, it is suggested to cut slightly outside the lines of the previously made template.

    997513E9-DA02-4616-8B1A-6CAB515FCB7F.jpg

    8C658DC7-C94F-4546-825A-BB947F5D84E5.jpg

    Now pull up the carpeting and take one of the “Lower 58698-76010” pieces under the carpeting to the newly cut hole. Make sure to snug the “Lower 58698-76010” into carpet hole exposing all prong/clips. Now with the other hand place the “Upper 58694-76010” into the carpet hole. The joining of the two pieces will make an audible clicking sound when firmly pressed together.

    8C3C748B-04DF-4312-9F2E-DAA6E0C30073.jpg

    Now return the floor mat to inspect fitment. Now repeat steps to complete the second and last oval floor mat hole. Reinstall both the kick panel and scuff plate.

    272CFFFB-BB28-4AA7-B678-114CD7EB011B.jpg

    Gracias for your patience and I hope you enjoy a non-sliding passenger side floor mat!

    Nice, but I wonder if putting these openings in the mat will then allow moisture to seep through to the carpets below?

    Yes, I had the same wonder/reservation too.

    However, the carpet that was not covered by the floor mat was 100% exposed to the junk of winter (because my passengers would neglect to correctly affix the floor mat each time). This way if any weather or moisture happens to reach the carpeting it would be minimal in comparison to what I had happening prior. So that was the trade-off for me. Thus far, I am pleased and have not seen any down sides yet and winter for us continues on... ugh!

    Thanks for checking in!

    You said you did this on a weather tech mat. Do you have any pictures with them installed on them or just the all weather mats from Toyota?

    Perhaps, I may be mistaken... I did this on the Toyota floor mat that I believe is made by WeatherTech...?

    Thank you @ElNopal ! I made a template from my driver's side floor mat retainer clips and installed the passenger side in the mirror image.

    It was close, but it lined up with the weathertech mat's molded circular portions. In hindsight, I really should have just cut the holes in the weathertech mat and used that as my template to reduce the risk of failure, but it worked out.

    I also modified the factory mat to fit the new hooks as well - since I had to slice through some of the mat's channels, I cleaned the mat with alcohol and then layed a bead of rtv before compressing the retainer ring insert halves together. Seems to have worked out well, although I leave the weathertech mats in for more coverage, so my usage of the factory mats was limited.

    This is a lifesaver of a post. Been using the "eagleclaw clips" but not a ton of success. Starting this project this month will update on how it goes!

    Tyler, you will need 2 of each of the part numbers for a total of four parts to complete the passenger side. I used another couple of sets to complete the rear mats as well.

    The “uppers-the ones that twist to lock in the floor mat” are set into the lowers with the carpet in between. Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

    Just did this little project over the holidays and figured I would add my 2 cents...

    Similar to OP, I made a full cardboard cut out of the floor mat and traced out the holes I would be cutting into the passenger seat.

    When actually trying to get underneath the floor mat, it was helpful to unclip the little plastic binding on the side of the truck, allowed for much more arm space to get under the mat to place the under retainer.

    Finally, the clips listed at the beginning of this post off ebay do obviously work, but I found that calling Weathertech and asking for a duplicate pair of their clips that they put on the driver side mat fit a little bit better (again this is splitting hairs and is mostly just my OCD kicking in)

    Again, thanks to @ElNopal and all others commenting on the post, this problem was so frustrating for awhile and very relieved to say it will no longer be a problem.

    Thanks for posting with an update. I am glad I went this direction for anchoring the passenger mat (and rear one) and I feel that you will be too! Nice work! :thumbsup:

    Thanks for the DIY, I was just thinking about this yesterday after i saw my passenger mat slid up into the footwell.
