Oh awesome! I just checked the pic out! I love it. I just called my dealership back and I’m even more confused now. Apparently there are two listed in the catalogue. Only one shows a photo. The second one is more expensive :( this should be an easy process lol

There are two different "cargo mats" on the official chevrolet accessories list. One of them extends up the back side of the rear seats and is called a "cargo liner". When the rear seats are folded down, there is additional protection against damage from whatever cargo is placed across them. I'm intruiged by this, and curious about the attachment mechanism to the back of the seats.

This is the more conventional cargo mat:
Premium All-Weather Cargo Mat in Jet Black with Chevrolet Script
Part No. : 42669376


This is the extended cargo liner:
Integrated Cargo Liner in Jet Black with Chevrolet Script
Part No. : 42750492


Weathertech has also released an aftermarket cargo liner, and I've had good use out of these on other vehicles. I especially like the high lip on the weathertech liners, although I find that they don't stay put as well as I'd hope (true for most cargo mats, IME).

I have the premium mat, the one without the seat back protection and the matching floor mats. My only complaint is that the cargo mat only works with the cargo floor in the higher position and not when it's lowered. I also like the Weathertech mats, have had them in multiple vehicles, but I used my points to buy the all the GM mats and Weathertech still doesn't have a complete set for the Trailblazer yet.

It's really quite ingenious. When the seat back frames were made, they removed some material, I presume to lighten up the seat. The mat has holes in it that line up with a hole in the seat back so all you do is lay the seats down and place the mat over them, use an awl to poke through the carpet on the back of seats through the holes in the mat, and then push in the supplied plastic pins to hold the mat in place. Someone for sure had there thinking ahead cap on that day :)

The GM cargo mats are nice, but I wish they would have designed them to work with the cargo floor in the lower position.

I hear you on wishing it worked on the lower setting. Would have been a bit more functional to have a bit of a well back there.

I do have to say in reference to the post above about flipping it to the smooth side over . . . good grief they couldn't have found a slipperier surface to use. We tried that side for about 1 minute and figured we better get a mat :)

How did you locate the unseen holes on the back of the seats? Or did you just push through the seats through the cargo mat holes?

Yes, I laid the cargo mat down and used an awl to poke through the carpet on the seat back. Like I said before, kudos to the designers on getting together on that because the holes under the carpet were right where they needed to be.

thanks for this, I also have this mat but couldn’t find the holes under the carpet to poke the awe through and didn’t want to go poking around until I was sure I found it. Base on your image it looks like I need to slide my mat down a bit. I had it almost all the way to the top of the back of the seat almost touching the seat fabric.

Glad it was helpful. I would think if you had the mat too far off, the seat won't fold back up so hopefully you were able to install and avoid any frustration :) Enjoy the mat. I realize our vehicles are at most 8 - 10 months old but so far no complaints with the mat (or the TB in general).

how big are the holes? Can I feel them with and fit my index finger tip in them? Or are they just big enough for the awe or plastic pegs? I feel one hole I thought but it was way too big for the peg.
