Installing Headrests from your Katzkin Kit

In our latest installation video the ShopSAR restlylers give you some tips for a successful install on some brand new headrest covers which are included as past of a Katzkin Upholstery Kit.

Just remember these three tips if you are tackling this job yourself:

1.       You must compress the foam.
2.       You must firmly grip the new cover in a way that you support and protect the seams as they can easily split and tear during install.

3.       Cover the foam with a thin plastic bag. Two great examples are a dry cleaning bag and the grocery store fruits and veggie bag. 

Watch the video and enjoy your new interior!

Zkintech - The Newest Look From the Leather Experts at Katzkin

"Consumers have come to expect a full interior transformation, not just leather seating."

Katzkin has met this challenge by taking interior design to the next level. With their new Zkintech series they introduce a new collection of design choices that offer an elegant enhancement of the factory look with tailored stitch lines, all the way to elevated luxury with additional hints of color, texture and detail.

More single tone interiors with tailored details like stitches and perforation. Seats wraps are high contrast to the rest of the interior. More use of seat faces, not inserts or body. Katzkin’s new line of exclusive designs feature tailored stitch and trim options on some of their best selling leather interiors including:

  • Hyundai Sonata
  • Ford Mustang (Coupe and Convertible)
  • Chevrolet Tahoe
  • Chevrolet Silverado
  • Chevrolet Suburban
  • GMC Sierra
  • GMC Yukon
  • Honda Accord Sedan
  • Toyota Tundra Crewmax
  • Ram 1500
  • Jeep Wrangler

These kits may come in several colors designed to compliment the factory interior, but cannoy be customized further (ex. different two-tone combinations, embroideries, etc.) and each style is specific to the vehicle that Katzkin has designed it for.
