Just got my first PA; sounds like theres a ball/bead rolling inside the chair, near the back middle. Can't figure out were exactly its rolling between. Is this normal?

FYI - what you hear are the last rivet mandrels that are left inside the tube frame, after pulling them for the installation of the last fitting on the Vantage seat in assembly.

Great, I am not the only one that noticed this... Do you all haul your yak with the seat strapped in? I use a trailer and leave it on. I use the under the seat tackle straps to secure the seat back down. I also run my secure cable through the leg and through the side handle and attach it to the trailer. What do yall do?
