Wise Sure-Mount Seat Brackets
Just installed this on a 14' alum fishing boat, I've used many other seat mounting methods, but this one works the best. I chose to not use the optional retainer bracket, so this allows the seat to be removed to protect from weather, since this boat is outside all the time. This beats the plastic slide-on brackets hands down, I'll be buying a couple more for another Jon boat I'm so impressed with the first one.

Great seat mount
I have used several of these brackets over the years and I have found that they are the best seat mounts for attaching to tank style seats. I f you use a swivel under the seat it allows you move sideways to balance your weight, and rotate for the best driving position. There are a couple of modifications I carry out. The first is that I throw away the self tapping screws and use aluminium rivets, (most tank seats are light guage alloy) and the rivets never move. The second mod is that I place a 3mm by 50mm strip of alloy under the rear mount bracket overlapping either end which assists in engaging the grooves when mounting the seat. This also stops the seat from bottoming on the tank seat, it also stops any flexing of the tank seat. The front mount is sharp at both ends and can scratch your leg, I got an angle grinder and smoothed them over, then no problem. You may think I go to a little trouble to modify them but these seat mounts are worth it.

seat bracket WD 70
This is poor made it has sharp edges on it that you should remove and the way it is made it will ware a groove in your boat It is hard to slide
But after you install it you must use it to cover the holes you had to drill in your boat
