The specification discloses an improved floor mat mounting system which consists of a retaining means molded out of plastic or other similar materials which, in one of its embodiments, has one smooth surface adapted to be glued or otherwise fastened to the underside of a motor vehicle carpet floor mat to prevent movement upon the entry and exit of occupants of a motor vehicle. In another modification, there is disclosed a retainer having bristles extending from both sides thereof, which is adapted to be used by itself, and be placed at various locations on the car carpet with the standard motor vehicle floor mat placed thereover to engage the bristles on one side of the retainer, with the bristles on the other side of the retainer engaging the motor vehicle carpet, thereby preventing movement of the carpet floor mat by persons entering and exiting the vehicle. Regardless of which modification is used, the frictional engagement between the bristles on the bottom of the retainer and the motor vehicle carpet prevent movement of the carpet floor mat of the motor vehicle.
