Load Area seats - some questions

Looking at some exmoor load area seats - i want something with head rests and that is easily removed from the rear entirely, as well as not having brackets in the middle of the load area space (which interferes with double scuba tanks)

the Forward facing flip up seats - anyone know if they are easily removed? - or have a way to unbolt the seat from the bracket etc?

The lock and folds have a number of brackets - but same question there as well.

Thanks

They are meant to be a permanent install. I don't think it would be easy to setup otherwise. you could do a bench seat.

i have a bench seat right now - may keep it since it can be easily removed
but if the head rest style seats can come out easily then i would prefer those.

For the older ones (the non-lock and fold), there's a bracket that's bolted to the side that has pins the seats slide onto. It's easy to take out the seats and it usually takes a minute or two fighting the pin alignment when putting the seats back. The bracket is held in place by two bolts. When the seats are not present, the pins overhang about an inch. Seats can be set up forward or backward facing. They are high back, so do not have a removable headrest.

If you're also installing seatbelts, you'll need to put a bolt in the middle of the floor between the seats. Since the seatbelts need to pivot on the bolt, it's not some that can be made flush very easily.

I have these installed in my 110. Let me know if you want any more details.
