Warning and Usage Guidelines
Attaching the Seat
Attach the seat to your kayak's existing tie down points with the snap hooks. Connect the two bottom straps toward the rear of the kayak and the top two straps toward the front of the kayak. Tighten each strap so the seat is secure. The top/front straps can adjust the recline of the backrest to your comfort level.
I bought this seat for longer trips (more than 1 hour) and it has stopped me from suffering from a sore back and backside which ruined longer trips for me. The higher backrest is the real winner providing the even support my back needed up the full length of my back, instead of having the seat back digging in just below my life jacket. Since I wasn't wiggling around trying to relieve the stress on my back, and the extra padding on top of the regular seat my backside is pain free too.
The seat arrived 3 days early and installing it in my 12' Old Town Vapor 12S was and snap, literately. I just removed all the straps (not needed for this kayak) and used the existing holes in the seat back of the original seat to pass the strap ends thru the seat and used 2 6" bungee cord to secure it. This way seat folds and original seat adjustment works fine with this seat on top of original seat.
It worked so well, I bought a second one and put it in my wife's sun dolphin 12' with the same results for her. No more sore back and was also easy to install using the existing hardware of kayak.

Recently purchased one of these seats and I couldn't be happier with it. I found it to be constructed with quality materials in a quality way. Very comfortable addition to my Kayaking experience and allows me to go longer stretches in between "stand up" breaks. Probably will be purchasing another for my girlfriend this spring.

Great seat! Only problem is that is cost me more money than intended because once my wife tried it she had to have one and I was forced to order a second seat.
