This is handy for making seat removal/installation faster and easier.

1/4" clevis pin with a hairpin style cotter pin and a small zip-tie to make it easy to remove.


In the US it's hard to find a 6mm clevis pin so I use 1/4" and have to enlarge the holes in the seat bar and hinge with a 1/4" drill but if you live in metric land you could probably use a 6mm clevis pin and not have to drill anything.

BRILLIANT!!! I've lost track of all the C clips I have lost down that hole under the hinge pin.

I've done the same, minus the cable tie. I have a piece of bent wire velcroed under the seat which I use for the tank clips and the seat clevis clips. Another Bricker has gone a step further and has long skinny cable ties on his tank clips.
Regards Martin

If you could use white cable ties... even better.
