    Last fall, I bought a (new to me) 2015 Limited Crew Cab Tundra in the fastest color possible (pic attached of my loyal 2006 Nissan Xterra meeting his Tundra successor). Being able to roll down the back window was a huge selling point for me (as was this forum and its shared expertise).

    Fast forward to today--the high today in Raleigh, NC is 75. Tomorrow's high is 79. There is a 100% chance that I roll down all six windows in my truck today, tomorrow, and maybe the next day. However, like some people, my rear seatbelts flap in such windy conditions. I have read some posts regarding remedies such as plastic clips, magnets, etc., but I have not read anything that provided a definitive solution. Those of you that have solved this issue, please share what worked for you.

    Lastly, please share any summer mods that you enjoy. At the very least, I plan to tint my windows and install a remote starter that can roll down all of the windows with the remote. (note-the truck came with WeatherTech floor mats and a Rugged Cover tonneau cover, so I have been effectively indoctrinated in both of those camps).

    Would buckling them help?

    @Jerry70 great looking truck, hope you get some warmer weather up north.
    @Ps3udonymous I will give that a try. Simple solutions are always the best.

    What’s your sixth window? Mine only has 5. There are clips built into the side column in my truck for the rear seat belts. Tucking them into those clips almost completely eliminates the flapping. But you have to do it after each time they’re used, so I never realize they’re loose until we’re on the highway and it’s too late.

    I think his "sixth" is the sun roof

    @TXTundra2722 correct, I count the sun roof as a sixth window so I can give my buddy with a F-150 a hard time. @polymerhead I do not have clips on the side column, but that sounds very promising. Maybe installing said clips is my best bet, and just making the habit of always tucking them when they are not in use.

    Makes total sense. I’m sunroof-poor over here. I’ll look at my clips tonight and let you know if they’re integral or something you can add on. Might be a very cheap part to buy!

    I have found that all windows down just cause turbulent flow around the cab. I keep the rear sides up most of the time (except for the dog). Fronts and the rear work fine.

    Dunno, full down doesn't do as much for me.

    These are the clips on the side of the seat, they are hard to notice. Keep the seat belt in there and you won’t have any flapping
