Default Clutch Peddal Catching on Floor Mat

Like the title says, my clutch peddal is catching on my floor mat (driver's side, duh). I've resorted to taking it off of it's "knub's" and pull it back as far as I can. This works temporarily, but my feet push it forward and I have to reach down evey so often to pull it back.

Wondering if anyone else has this issue, and if so what've you done to solve it?

TIA

Not sure anyone's floor mat has come up like yours.

You can buy floor mat clips at any auto parts store. They are sturdy spring like clips that grab your mat. The back side has nasty looking dagger-like prongs which dig into the vehicle carpet. These do the job, but they will rust over time (faster if you spill liquid on them).

Similar to these:

These look like they'd do the trick, thanks!



I just wonder if I could make a temporary version out of:

to "train" the mats to lay flat?

I have put black strips of velcro with double sided tape.. Easy, cheap and effective.

I just used a pair of scissors to trim off the area where the clutch pedal would catch, and used a heat gun to create a smooth edge. Not a single problem since.
