Best used as a replacement seat back, or seat back upgrade, for Perception recreational and day touring kayaks. Fits most older Perception kayaks (1990s into 21st century) with a seat back slot molded into the seat bottom structure, as well as some modern Perception Sport brand recreational kayaks currently in production. Kit contains a molded plastic seat back (1850001) plus 2 feet of 1 inch webbing strap, Perception's instructions and a TopKayaker supplemental page. Also included: 2 feet of the recommended bungee cord at no extra charge. The seat back is hollow, 14 inches high, by 15 inches wide, about 3 inches thick. The base of the seat is 8.5 inches wide and fits into a slot on the back edge of the seat bottom in your kayak. The seat back (18500011) is made of plastic, easy to trim if needed. This kit is best used to upgrade a hollow 10 inch tall seat back into a 14 inch tall seat back. It can also be used to upgrade the Version C Rec Seat Back into a much stronger seat system. The older version of this back support came with a footman’s loop secured on back side. Footmans Loops can be used to repair this style of back support.
Use the Seat Strap Kit or the P-3 Zone Strap Kit if you are retrofitting into a kayak that does not have an existing seat strap.
