I cut off the buckles and loosely tied the straps on one side to the strap on the other side. When you put your seat back on, most of the slack will be taken out and it will fit snug. For the rear strap, I cut off the buckles and straps and used a piece of rope.
It took me awhile to find the "sweet spot" for the cover to fit also but after a little bit of messing around with it, I got it. It's not gonna fit like a glove, it'll wiggle a little but it's a whole heck of a lot cheaper than buying a custom seat....
Just put mine on yesterday when I replaced the battery. I got rid of the snap ties and used the Dremel on the female end grinding down so just the plastic rectangle part was left. Then I threaded in a 24 inch Hook and Loop cinch strap through that. I had to remove the entire rear buckle system and go through the loop. Looks clean and fits like a glove very snug.
