                      Boat Seat Pedestal Safety

                      When you are looking at replacement boat seat pedestals you will often see “Class AD” or “Type B” used to describe the seat hardware. What exactly do these classifications mean? ... read more ABYC Boat Seat Pedestal Standards
                      Beginning in 1996 the American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) recommended seat hardware safety codes. These ABYC standards help boaters select safe seat pedestals for different applications around their boat.

                      There are three boat seat pedestal classifications: Class AD (sometimes called AO), Class AP (sometimes called AN), and Class B. A designation of Class A designation (AD and AP) means it can be used while the boat is underway at any speed. Class B hardware should only be used on seats occupied while the boat is moving at 5 mph or less.

                      Class AD hardware is designed to be used at a boat helm/driver position. To achieve this class it must meet the most stringent requirements as described below:
                      • Must have positive locking swivels which withstand 150 ft. lbs. of torque
                      • All seats interchangeable with the operator's seat must meet the requirements of this section
                      • A seat designed for occupancy while the vessel is underway at any speed
                      • Employ a locking mechanism for each plane or axis of movement
                      • Seats with fore/aft adjustment must sustain static load of 300 lbs. for 3minutes, in mid position
                      • Seats with a vertical adjustment feature shall have a positive locking mechanism
                      • Sustain 10 impacts of 225 lbs.
                      Boat Seat Pedestal
                      Class AP pedestals are designed to be used while the boat is underway, but not in the driver position. This seat hardware for passenger boat seats must meet the following requirements:
                      • Swivel locking mechanism must sustain torque of 30 ft. lbs.
                      • A seat designed for occupancy while the vessel is underway at any speed
                      • Employ a locking mechanism for each plane or axis of movement
                      • Seats with fore/aft adjustment must sustain static load of 300 lbs. for 3 minutes, in mid position
                      • Seats with a vertical adjustment feature shall have a positive locking mechanism
                      • Sustain 10 impacts of 225 lbs.
                      Fishing Seat Pedestal
                      Class B seat hardware has the fewest requirements. This hardware is typically used on fishing seats and other seats that are not used while underway. It must only meet the following two requirements:
                      • A seat designed for occupancy only at boat speeds not exceeding five miles per hour
                      • Sustain dynamic loads at 1/2 the velocity required for Type A seats
                      Boat seat pedestals from quality manufacturers will meet or exceed the ABYC standards for strength and safety. Grouping seat pedestals into the ABYC categories helps to keep boaters safe and also assist in narrowing the selection of boat seat hardware.

                      How to identify my boat seat pedestal

                      Seat Pedestal Identification

                      There are four large manufacturers of boat seat pedestals: Garelick, Springfield, Swivl-Eze and Wise. All of these aftermarket manufacturers also supply OEM hardware to boat builders.< ... read more

                      Pedestal components from different manufacturers have different tolerances and should not be mixed as it typically voids any warranties. For example, if you have a Swivel-Eze post you should only use a Swivel-Eze seat mount.

                      Pedestal Size Springfield Swivl-Eze Garelick Wise Notes
                      3/4" Pin KingPin - Standard Standard Pin Base

                      KingPin - Threaded Threaded Pin Base
                      Lock'N-Pin - Standard

                      Lock'N-Pin - Threaded
                      King Pin - Standard This is the only size where some manufacturers say brands can be mixed. 3/4" pedestal bases and posts can be either standard or threaded. Threaded bases have a deeper cup under the plate that houses the female threads. The standard, non-threaded base is shorter and only holds the bushing.
                      1.77" Spring-Lock has a stainless steel post with mechanical lock on the bottom of post that locks into the base. Used mostly on Ranger Bass Boats and other premium brand bass boats.

                      Clip-Lock has an aluminum post with a bushing on the bottom that expands inside the base for the unintentional detachment.

                      Spring & Clip-Lock parts interchange. Snap-Lock Base
                      Snap-Lock Series features a larger locking clip with a metal insert that allows the posts to lock into bases for added safety. Just press the button to release. Snap-Lock Base
                      2" & 2-3/8" Taper-Lock, ideal for fishing boats, has been widely used by many top-name boat builders for years. Taper-Lock Base Wedge 2" & 2-3/8" bushing locks in with a tight, solid fit. Wedge Base Bases between brands often appear identical. However, slight tolerance variations may produce an improper fit if brands are interchanged. The brand of the base can often be found stamped underneath. Pedestal Base Brands
                      2-3/8" Thread-Lock Series offers a great retrofit to any boat where a seat is needed and you don't want to go below deck. Low profile base with steady support. Thread-Lock Base

                      Permanent Pedestals This size is typically used for freshwater boats.

                      Permanent Pedestals are most often sold as a complete package (base, post & seat mount) If replacing just the seat mount, it should be the same brand as the rest of the pedestal.
                      2-7/8" Permanent Pedestals such as the Mainstay.

                      Plug-In Series is occasionally found in this size.

                      About Pedestals & Hardware

                      Pedestals And Hardware For a Boat Seat

                      Your boat seat starts on the deck. Practically every boat has one or more seats on it that require a mounting pedestal: fold down seats, pro seats, bucket seats, helm seats.

                      Seat pedestals are made up of a base, post and seat mount. Swivels, slides, and additional hardware can be added depending on the features you want. There are several styles and sizes of boat seat pedestals to keep you comfortable and safe while boating.

                      Seat pedestals have an ABYC (American Boat and Yacht Council) rating to help you determine which pedestals are safe for various positions on your boat. Type B rated boat seats are designed for low speeds under 5mph. These are perfect for fishing seats. Type A rated seat pedestals are designed to be used at any speed. Type A pedestals are split into driver and passenger position groups. Seat pedestals with this rating are great for bucket and helm seats.
