Installation Tutorial

Swivel Bracket Installation:

Attention to All Our Swivel Bracket Customers !!

Do not alter any of the swivel bracket mounting holes. This voids the lifetime warranty and USDOT certification.

If the swivel bracket holes DO NOT align with the seat base, you likely ordered the wrong swivel SKU#. Or may be attempting to install on the wrong side.
In some cases, compatibility issues are due to having non-OEM seat bases installed, usually on used vehicles.

Please double-check your seat base and this swivel compatibility list before you place an order.

NOTE: For the top of the swivel bracket plate, make sure the bolt goes up through the hole from under the seat rail and the nut is placed on top of the seat rail (as pictured) for all sets of bolts and nuts needed to mount the seat to the swivel. Please DO NOT add any washers on the nut side. This is important for clearance during swiveling.

Below are some of our customers' YouTube links that show how to install our products.

Note: If your van has a manual E-break, make sure you add a hand brake adapter to your shopping cart when you buy a swivel, it will lower the hand break level to allow clearance.
