Hinges or latches

Looking for more tips.

What's best to secure a lift-off jockey seat and a lift-off locker bench seat? Hinges and latch or just latches?

Hinge and latch. Just latches will start to wobble under general use.

Hang on, you haven't said anything about whether they're stripey seats or not. You don't get away that easily...

If the OP has stripey seats, I'd suggest no hinges or latches. Hopefully he'll then lose the lot over the side.

Solid top - hatch in the side is all the rage this season. Stripes optional.

I think I'll go solid on jockey seat and hinge the bench. Can't afford stripes...

Thanks chaps.
