The Diono Grip It and the Diono Ultra Mat are different in the following ways:
1. The Ultra Mat is designed to completely protect car upholstery from scratches or dents caused by a rear or forward facing car seat. It does this with "Pentalock technology" - basically 5 layers all sewn carefully together to protect against any dent or scratch to your vehicle seat . The Grip It is not designed to provide that level of protection for the vehicle seat but is still going to offer some protection.
2. The Grip It is designed to hold / grip top and bottom surfaces. This prevents car seats from sliding around. This can be important depending on the car you drive and the style of upholstery. For example on leather seats your Grip It will offer some tack to help keep your car seat still.
3. The Ultra Mat has a pocket for your child's books, toys, nappies, or whatever, so you can securely tote their gear with you too.
