Wanted - ferret commander seat extension

Recommended Posts

Does tone have a good commander seat extension thingy. The threaded bar is good, have have made sure everything is clean and free but the retention bit does not hold the seat up when any pressure is put on seat.

 

cheers

Hi Mike

i don’t have a replacement seat extension thingy, but I do know how to fix yours. I posted something on the forum a couple of years ago about it. The threaded portion gets flats on it & the bit that should grip it doesn’t anymore. Chop of the threaded bit from the squashed part with the hole in it leaving a bit of thread, cut a length of M10 threaded rod to the same length that you have cut off, and join this to the squashed bit with an M10 nut. Job done

Hi guy

thanks for that I did see that post. The threaded part looks fine and in fact I have some M10 studding that does the same thing. I am guessing it's the internals of the locking mechanism :(

The thread on my seat didn’t look particularly worn, just some slight flatting of the threads on the sides. Might be worth sticking a bit of theaded rod up to see if it does the trick
