seat clips

It seems lots of the jockey seats are held down with velcro
Is there a better way of locking them shut.
Have you any details on where to buy some stronger fastenings/clips.

They have a website www.protex.com and we use some of thier fasteners on the engine cowling and on our lorry - all stainless and very much recomended - they will sell small quantities as well!

Do you think we should have 1 clip on the fronf of the jockey seat and leave the velcro. Or 1 clip either side, As long as they dont get in the way of you legs or get caught.

Any thoughts?

Steve,

We use the prolatch on the engine cowlings, but you might consider the catchbolt for the seat application. It is an over centre fastener which also has a bolt action, this means it stops the seat from moving around. I think one would be fine if you mount it on the front, they even come with facility for fitting a padlock, so you can keep stuff safe!

Hi folks

Pretty sure its Protex Ribcraft use, and are on my RIB, current and previous.

Think they are great.

I have two types one locking and one catch release( you need to slide down a button before you can lift the latch.

I am planning to swap the 4 seat latchs to locking ones like on the engine, so will have 4 latching types going if any one wants them cheap. (Wont be swapping the other side though as both the latch & locking use the same ones.

Regards Gary
