Hard Leather seats

Anyone using the beaded style seat cushion on their leather seats? I picked one up today and it feels great but concerned about the beads stretching the leather where I sit. Any comments on the long term use of these products?

Sorry, can't help on the effect they might have on the leather, I've only seen them used in taxi-cabs before with a set of prayer beads hanging off the rear-view mirror....

Q. What do they add?

Cheers!

I am 6'4" have a long back. The bead cushion provides support at my lower back, like a pillow styled support would, but it stays put better for getting in and out of the car.

Ah ok thanks. I think that if it helps you to enjoy your car, then that's great. I hope it doesn't harm the leather...

Cheers!
