I ordered two of these to modify to make Jon boat swivel seats. I cut and filed away the legs and installed some heavy duty pipe/conduit brackets on the boats bench seats. This was one of the sturdiest and cheapest methods requiring the least amount of modifications i could find. I like they use a standard boat seat swivel. I also like that the base is also the same width and length as the seat frame itself which means it won’t tip like the other bolt on bench seat swivel adapters they sell for $20 (plus another $20 to $100 for seats depending on style and quality).
These seem very sturdy and solid. I sat in them to try out before cutting the legs away and they seem very sturdy and solid. Heavier than expected which is not a bad thing. The seat itself if fairly comfortable, more comfortable than expected. The back rest is not padded that well but it does give back support but I will be adding additional padding for comfort in the back rest. Swivel is smooth and quiet. Also, just want to mention I read in the questions that someone asked if the seat covers can come off for cleaning or padding replacement and someone answered no they dont.
Well, I’m not sure if they changed the design or if this person just was not aware but YES you can remove the seat cover. It’s velcroed on around the steel frame, undo velcro, unbolt seat and they slip right off.
I think these are going to work great in my Jon boat with mentioned modifications. Sometimes you got to think outside the box.
Hope my review can help someone else in a similar dilemma that I was in, it’s been a challenge finding something reasonably priced and sturdy.
Top Critical Review
This chair is okay for the price. It is uncomfortable after sitting in it for more than 15-20 minutes. There is an opening in the backrest and I shoved a hunting seat cushion inside of it to support my back better. I also suggest a seat cushion for your butt too. I read reviews and knew what the challenges were going to be but still bought it because of the price. I didn??t want an $80 chair sitting in my hunting blind that could get stolen or weather away. I kind of figured I??m not out much money should something happen to this chair. See my pics to see how I used an inflatable cushion for backrest. That cushion is less than $10 at Walmart
* Light weight
* Comes with built in strap for carrying
* Swivels quietly
* Painful on your back and butt. Needs cushions to make it comfortable. If you hunt for long periods of time, you need to consider this.
* Awkward folding and carrying. The strap is not positioned best and it??s very awkward carrying. Not fun walking out to my blind with this chair.
Customer Questions & Answers
Is this chair fireproof?
Answer: You plan to hunt in forest fires ?
does this come in camo?
Answer: Its weight limit is 300 pounds, I work for The Sportsmans Guide!
What is the height, ground to seat?
Answer: I am not sure, I use this chair extensively and modify the height for the blind I am using by using one or more of the foam pads. I found the chair to be a bit too hard for extended sitting without a pad. I also taped the spot where the seat back metal hits the chair metal as without tape it squeaks a bit.
What is the seat height? I’m trying to determine if it will work with my blind and the window openings.
Answer: I don’t have mine handy it is at the cabin but I can say it is pretty much standard height for a chair, about the same as the folding stadium bag chairs..I’ve used it in hub style and spring steel type blinds and it works very well with the window height in either.
