Springfield Marine Plug-In Pedestal Set
This pedestal is nearly impossible to take in and out, and the screw cap at the end of the base falls right off. after a few trips the plastic piece in the base broke rendering the product useless, my other one broke a few days later. A total waste of money.

flimsy & difficult to use
Have never been able to get posts out of base. I'm going to have to drill through them and try to use a pry-bar to get them loose.
Plastic piece on bottom of seat unscrews constantly. One fell off and then the plastic receiver in the top of the post shattered.
Even in the one the still works it always feels like it's going to snap off backwards -- and I weigh 160lbs.

As with another reviewer, I had the same issue with the plastic piece attached to the swivel broke after about 7 uses. This should be made of a metal of some sort. I only weigh 175 pounds and am not abusive with equipment. Bass Pro Shops in Altoona, Ia galdly exchanged the broken pieces out of another set they had in stock, but I am not very comfortable that it will last any longer.

Don't waste your money
As in other reviews this product has a major problem with a screw on cap at the bottom of the seat pedestal. I'm lucky if I get 2 trips out before it falls apart. Yes BPS will gladly replace the whole unit, but that does not fix the problem. My advice would be to find another brand of pedestal.
