In the event of a capsize, Vantage style seats can come loose from the hull if not properly tethered. All Vantage style seats are secured into a kayak by a safety tether located at the aft center of the seat. This tether prohibits the seat from rotating to the unlock (removal / install) position.

The Hobie® Vantage CT Seat uses a simple locking part, but its proper use is essential. Failure to "snap" the part onto the eyelet post can result in the seat rotating to the unlocked position and possible loss.

ESSENTIAL!

Pull up to "snap" the clip in place.

Hobie Vantage ST (PA 12 / 14) and Vantage XT (PA 17T) use a webbing strap, which is locked in place on the seat frame by a stainless clip on a shock cord.
