tall back seats fix

Post by mobytom » Thu Jul 10, 2008 9:58 am

If any one ever needs to use a "tall back" seat instead of the factory seats on the Advanced Elements StraitEdge I have a solution to my earlier posted question.

Every tall back seat I can find online has metal slide hooks (like on a dog leash) instead of the plastic clasps on the StraitEdge.

The solution: go to a pet store and buy two dog collars. The ones I got are for small dogs, made out of a nylon strap that closes with plastic and metal snap clasps.

The thinner end of the open collar can be fed through the opening at the strap that's fixed to the "hull", pulled through and fastened. It's a tight fit. A little fiddling will get the ring that is intended for the dog leash in the proper position to be attached to the tall back seat hook.

Haven't bought the seat yet, but I'm pretty sure it will work.
