DIY: inexpensive sliding all season floor mat fix

I like the oem all season mats but hate how bad the velcro is. Here's a diy to keep the mats from sliding that costs almost nothing:

Parts required:
2x furniture bolts (bolts with a flat head)
2x nuts

Drill a hole in each plastic velcro pad and two holes in the mat. The flat headed bolt provides enough threads on the velcro pad to be screwed back into the floor. I placed a nut on the bolt to keep the mat down and prevent dirt from going underneath. It's not the most elegant looking solution but I'm ok with it for my E91 daily/winter beater. Maybe look for black bolts or hit them with black spray paint for a better look?

Never had an issue with my mats moving, maybe you just need new velcro pads. Neat idea, perhaps use shorter bolts that aren't such an eyesore or won't be stubbing your feet into?

A shorter bolt with maybe a black cap can be a bit more pleasing to the eyes. Good idea however, for those who have this issue.
