Springfield Spring-Lock™ Power Rise Pedestals
Does it's job
The Springfield Spring-lock power pedestal does it's job. I needed something that would adjust my seat to allow me to move up and down now that I'm getting older and as I said it does the job. The only reason it did not get 4 stars is the fact that it did not come with hardware to mount the seat itself. It is also a little high in price.

I just purchased a seat and pedestal for the front of my boat ,thinking that all pedestal shaft's and the hole in hole in the floor mount were the same size in all boats .
Not so . I did not see a diameter measurement for the pedestal and therefor thought they were a standard size on all boats . Instead of going through the trouble of sending the pedestal back to Bass Pro ,I fabricated a spacer to accept the pedestal . The hole in the floor mount is larger than the shaft .I think it would be beneficial to other customers if Bass Pro prints in the catalogue , the make of boats the pedestals will fit as well as the diameter of the pedestals .

No other option
I have had two of these on my 2010 Ranger and both have failed. The original one would not release to allow the pedestal to retract/lower, second one the collar around the shaft has broken so now the piston wobbles. If you average this out they last about a year. Unfortunately this is the only pedestal that will fit my boat so I am forced to buy another one and hope that it last longer.

Power raised pedestal
Great reliable product. Only wish would be a setting that locks the seat so it does not swivel.
