I think I can park a car on these! We installed these brackets on the rear seat of a classic Thomson to give us more room on the deck. Great product, positive lock, no play, worth the money.

These brackets are pricey, but are the most heavy duty brackets available. Im using them for a fold down seat on the front of my console.

HI, can this support a 48in long, 14in wide bench? if yes, how many should be used?
wayne on May 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These are so overbuilt you could hold an engine block with one. Your bench will require two.
Is this price per bracket or pair? I want to build bench seat 5 ft with brackets 3 ft apart and counter levered seat. Must hold 2 adults
Geoffrey on Apr 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The price is for one Bracket. They are very heavy duty. As mentioned in the "Key Features" , the bracket is rated to hold 1800lbs. Provided the material you use for the bench seat is up to the task and the brackets are securely mounted you should be fine. I'm not sure what you mean by counter levered, but it is not going to fold down an be recessed into a pocket like you may have seen on some newer boats. It will protrude from the surface it is mounted on by the width of the folded bracket plus the seat base. You could save some space if the cushion is removable but depending where it's mounted, it could be a knee knocker. Plan carefully.
Is this a friction lock? Or, does it have a notch to keep it in the horizontal position?
Daniel B on Oct 29, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Great question. This seat bracket is not a friction style bracket but rather locks in both the open and closed positions. The open position is at a 90-degree angle. We hope this helps
Can you provide a picture of this bracket folded up?

Thank you Steve!
what is the closing feature , is it a soft close , does it need to be held while closing ?
Da Machine on Mar 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hey Eric, great question! The closing feature on this product is soft. You may need to hold it going down to stop it from slamming but there is no spring to slam it shut.
It looks like the bracket locks in the upright position. Does it lock as well in th down position?
Kurt G on Sep 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Kurt, great question! This seat bracket does not lock in the down position. Thank you!
Can a folding bracket ( one each) support a one person helm chair?
Anthony T on Aug 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Anthony, as long as you support the seat base laterally (so that it doesn't break off from a load that is not centered over the bracket) then one bracket could certainly support a one person seat. Keep in mind, this same type of support will need to be used on the part that attaches to the boat as well. Thank you!
for a small seat in a van camper do I need only 1 or should there be 2 for each seat?
Louise D on Aug 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Louise, I would recommend two brackets simply for lateral support of the seat. However, you might be able to use the lighter brackets that we offer in the link below for a small seat only holding lighter weight.
Thank you!
Two brackets on one seat give you a weight rating of 3,600 lbs. Why such "over-kill"? I need something lighter with a 300 lb weight rating. Any suggestions?
Randy on Aug 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Randy, great question. We do have some brackets rated for 300 lbs. You can find these in the link below:
Thanks Randy!

Can you unlock the brackets individually, say on a long seat when both brackets (or more) cannot be reached at the same time?
Barry Q on Jun 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Hi Barry, Good Question!
They are spring loaded levers and would need the constant pressure to unlock them. So it would be difficult to drop down with out engaging both at the same time.
I can't tell what the size of the seat is. Looking for length and width drawing is not clear ?
A shopper on Apr 5, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great Question,

The seat length is 11.77" and the width is 1.03".

Looks like this would work for a drop down bolster seat bracket?

Is this a pair or a single?
A shopper on Feb 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question! The bracket is sold individually.
Is there a seat to go on the stainless folding seat bracket ?
will mann on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: We unfortunately (currently anyway) do not do in house upholstery work and therefore do not have seats available specifically designed for use with this folding bracket.

The actual sea cushion would need to be sourced separately, either by a local upholstery shop or another marine retailer.
is this bracket made with 316 stainless?
