Seat covers adapt with the times and outboard strongbox holds a spare set of keys


Clean seats
Side-impact airbags and child seats have put the kibosh on traditional seat covers. So when you want to slip a protective layer between you and the seat, check out Seat Keeper, which uses non-skid backing and optional fastening loops to keep it in place.
$40-$80, seatcoverspecialties.com


Safe space
Never lock yourself out of your vehicle again with the HitchSafe, a small steel box that attaches to a trailer hitch receiver. It has a combination lock and enough room for an extra set of keys and other small valuables.
$70, hitchsafe.com
