Default Screw under seat of suburban

Hello, I recently purchased a 2015 suburban LTZ. While cleaning I noticed a screw protruding through the carpet under both the drivers seat and front passanger. It appears to be homding a heatshealed under the vehicle however I dnt know why ut would be left uncovered. Does it have another use? Line for floormats or should it have a cover?

Likely not, You can buy some Dorman or other brand rubber or plastic covers for them at most auto stores. Press them down on the screws and you are done.

morning i dont mean to stick my nose in here but you could shrink tube the screws to . i would be more concerned that the screw are not protruding into or rubbing against any under carpet wiring before anything they put a lot of wiring especially below the seats in newer vehicles does not hurt to check before a problem arises. have a good day

Thank you for the input. I thought it was odd that the screws were coming through on both sides. They are not self tapping screws and rhey are almost possitioned to be used as an anchor for something.
