Just seen this
What I DONT believe is that Velcro is as you say "more practicle than hinges" and maybe if you had the choice!..neither would you IMO it's just poor design and a cheap fix for the manufacturer!
Hinges are quicker and easier to use...more secure...with the option of locks..(I already covered that....and ( especially in rough conditions).. you don't have to wonder the deck holding a seat pod like a Numpty!..while you sort your shit out!..Simples!

Clearly you have ZERO experience of industrial Velcro used in such an application. Not that that would ever stop you from offering up a Maxi 'pearl of wisdom'.

As always, prep is key, dry, salt/dirt free first.
I've used this in the past with good results....the Heavy duty marine rated stuff in white is the way to go.
You are on about hinges how you going to fix a hinge to a vinyl and foam pad?

I'm not knocking hinges and catches, they're a tried and tested system. However,IMO and experience, Velcro is a neater solution for an Osprey pod top and works superbly. I don't know what you mean by 'facts', take a judge for a trip and ask him how the seat was? I'm not trying to sell the concept.

You always champion whatever system, fitting, equipment, etc,etc.that you have fitted to your current boat. Diss'ing alternative systems of which you have no knowledge or experience is not helpful.
Unfortunately, when you change boats, you then ditch your previously loudly held opinions/preferences for whatever you've fitted to the next boat.

This may possibly create a credibility issue.
