Bass Pro Shops Quick-Release Seat Swivel
smart idea... very smart
...so far so good ...I received the product after a short back order ...the mechanism seems sturdy, and was easy to install ...I mounted the unit on a half inch ply board, and the board I bracketed to my bench boat seat ...with this product the boat seat now is easy to slip on or remove ...The stress test will come when I actually use it on my next trip out on the water ...I am no Bubba (I tip the scales at 195) so can't vouch for anyone sitting on it who lives to trencher up at the all you can eat buffets ...I purchased two units so I could use the second one (the top section) for a reliable outboard motor mount when I trailer my boat to and from the lake (I'll slip the seat off and the motor mount on) ...I give it a four rating at this point, the fiver if it holds up for a season - many thanks!

Glad I waited.
I have used Tempress Quick Release Swivels in my drift boat for years but they only work on Tempress seats. These were on backorder for over a month so I went checking on alternatives. After seeing most of the others i am sure glad I waited. Excellent product and very well priced. No more changing out the metal roller ball swivels every season. I have some heavyweight fishing buddys. Very well built and I expect them to last a long time.

Tempress Quick-Release Seat Swivel
Purchased two of these to go with two Tempress Guide Series Boat Seats. Tempress sent the seats (4 weeks turn around time) and screws to attach to the Tempress Quick Release seat Swivel. The screws are too short to attach the unit to their own seat. Well thought out Tempress, was this part of your process outsourced?
If you are considering Tempress products, be prepared to purchase additional hardware on your own.

This was exactly what I ordered. I have installed them on the boat now just need some warmer temps so I can get the boat out.
Everything was great,except for the shipping, their competitor got product here in 5 business days, it took bass pro 15 days to get product here that was really disappointing .
