The main similarities


Both liners are made from durable materials and are designed to withstand heavy duty use whether you’re transporting dogs, goods or sports gear. Durable liners have a long lifespan and many customers say they last the lifespan of their cars and they only come back to us when they change cars.


The liners offer waterproof protection for the boot of your car so you can be sure that your car will be protected from wet dogs and equipment and to keep your boot clean.

Easy to fit

As the liners are specifically made to fit your car, they mould to the shape of your car boot perfectly and are easily secured with Velcro, elastic looks, hooks and adhesive fasteners.

Designed for specific models of car

Both liners are made to measure for each car model. Rhino UK takes the specific measurements of your car from you to make sure it’s custom made. At Hatchbag, we scan the boots of the car models we supply to make sure it’s a complete, secure fit.


Many cheaper boot liners are good for short-term solutions but they do not last and water and dirt can still get through.

Both Hatchbag and Rhino UK boot liners are made with high-quality materials to provide your car with full protection from anything you choose to transport.

Many boot liners simply offer a mat to cover the base of your boot but high-quality liners are high sided and protect the interior of your car too.

Accessories & additions

Both Hatchbag and Rhino UK are available with a number of additions to offer further protection to your car and boot, should you need it.

Options include:

Bootliner extension: The boot liner extension allows you to extend coverage of the liner to the rear passenger area if you feel you need additional space for dogs, fishing gear, mountain bikes, DIY equipment etc.

The main differences

Dog friendliness

If you like to get out and about with your dog in all weathers, you may find that your boot gets dirty quickly and smells are hard to get rid of and getting them dry while you’re out is nearly impossible. Hatchbag boot liners are designed to offer full coverage and prevent water and dirt from getting through to your boot whilst protecting your boot from muddy feet.

Our boot liners are made with soft, padded material which means your dogs will have a more comfortable journey in the boot of your car and, due to the way our boot liners are fitted, will not slip or slide around.

In addition, you do not need to remove the liner in order to clean it so any mud and dirt can be easily wiped away, taking the smell of wet dog with it.

At Hatchbag, we also supply quilted blanket-style mats to fit the bottom of your boot which is designed to repel dirt and hair and eliminate bad odours.

If you want to prevent your dog from slipping around the boot, we recommend a Rubber Mat which will help them to stay secure and stop them from slipping when you turn the corner or brake.

Flexibility for different car models

At Hatchbag, we scan the car boot of each of the models we supply boot liners for. This allows us to account for every contour of the boot and create a boot liner that is perfect for your car boot. Our boot liners will mould to the style of your car and adjust to meet your exact needs.

Car models and boot shapes may stay the same but accessories such as lights or sockets can change position from model to model as car manufacturers look to tweak models. This means that we do not supply gaps for these as we want our liners to offer as much coverage as possible. The material of our liners does not fray so you’re able to cut small gaps with a Stanley knife to expose boot lights or sockets in your car.

We also supply a range of custom mats for the bottom of your boot to help prevent luggage or pets from slipping and to offer added protection.

Secure fit

The Hatchbag boot liner is secured using hook fasteners and hook and loops to loop onto the headrests in your car to keep them in place. Some of our liners are supplied with elastic loops and rubber bungees which attach to suitable points located around your rear seats to ensure your liner stays in position.

Easy to clean

Using your boot to transport fishing gear, dogs, sporting gear or anything that causes your car boot to become filthy can ruin the inside of your car. However, adding a boot liner can protect your car but what happens when the boot liner becomes dirty? Many need to be removed and machine washed which can be a pain if you still want to use the liner to protect your boot while it’s being washed.

The Hatchbag liner is made with wipe clean material so you can clean it while it’s still in your car without having to remove it. The fabric used means that the dirt comes off quickly and easily, without leaving any odour and, as the liners fit so perfectly, there is minimal risk of the dirt and water seeping through to your car.
