Driver's mat - how to keep it from sliding out of place?

I hate the fact that my mat slides forward all the time. It's so annoying.

Has anybody here figured out a way to keep it in place?

Happened to me for the 1st 2 months I had my car. My dealer gave me 2 sets of mats and both sets didn't have the pads already installed. Then I discovered that the velcro pads were in a plastic bag under my trunk where the spare wheel would be. Go check there. They're 2 little round disks.

Thanks all for your tips.

I do have the velcro pads - but somehow they lost their grip.

I will try replacing with new pads.

My car came with plastic hooks that go through the eyelets in the mats and screw into the floor. Had them on my last car too and they work great.
