Doors off, now what to do with the floor mats

please excuse my ignorance since this is my first jeep. When the doors are off the floor mats want to fly out. What do people do to resolve this minor issue. I've contemplated Velcro but thats my only idea so far.

I had a similar issue when I had a JK and the weathertech mats. I used velcro.
My LJ I just used heavy Michelin mats and they don't budge.

Fronts are fine, I roll the back mats up and put them under the back seat

Rubber all weather mats will hold the carpet down.

Run a bungie cord from the rear seat mounting legs around the front seat mounts and back to the rears. It works just fine for me.

I zip tied mine to the back of the front seat post. Punch small holes and fed the zip ties through and around.

I run without doors all the time. Floor mats have never left the Jeep yet. Started with Mopar slush mats and now using Q-tec floor liners.

Punching holes in things, zip ties, clamps wow! More than one way to skin a cat I suppose. I'd personally choose industrial strength velcro. I've yet to run out of uses for it, the stuff is awesome. I get mine at home depot. It's invisible, requires no modifications to anything and works great.

rears never move, I have both front seats all the way back so there covered anyways, tow strap is rolled up and is behind my drivers seat so that one isn't going anywhere. As for the fronts with the hooks they stay put. Only a handful of times has the passenger one caught the wind right and wanted to lift off. But other than that the hook keep em in.
