Springfield Spring-Lock Posts, Bases, and Seat Mount
finally replaced the springfield gas pedestal posts w/ non-gas. new seat mount plates and regular pedestal posts 1.77. needed to look at because there is a front and rear which wasn't marked. The gas ones wore out quick and made tons of clicking noises on board. Springfield replaced once and still noises. Paid ranger boats $90+ ea x 2 should've gone to Bass Pro. toss in some 3" 1/4" stainless screws, fender washers and nylok stainless lock nuts and you've a sure winner!

This post is definately strong and rigid. It gives me the additional leg room I was seeking and makes operating my foot controlled trolling motor more comfortable. My only complaint is that it has a tendency to rotate in the post sleeve. Therefore, my offset may not be to the front of the deck, but off to one side or the rear. I wish the post and sleeve were keyed to prevent this rotation.

I purchased the Springfield seat mount and offset seat post for my boat recently and both parts fit perfectly and work great. I will be buying more products from bass pro since my carpets will need to be replaced soon. Bass pro has everything and anything I could ask for. Thanks for the great products and fast shipment as well. - Dave

had offset pedestal on old boat but it would not fit ranger mount. only drawback is it does not rotate too freely. cannot stand all the time to fish so this seat gives me a little more room as i can move it somewhat out of the way. have just purchased and used it only twice so cannt tell how durable it will be
