Choosing a Side Mount

When mounting race seats, in most cases you will want to use the Planted Technology 90 Degree Universal Side Mount. However, when installing a seat that is the same width as the holes you wish to mount to you'll want to use the Planted Technology Offset Side Mount because a 90 degree side mount will not allow you to install the bolts.

For example, installing a Recaro slider, which is 16 inches wide, with a side mount seat that is also 16 inches wide. The vertical part of the 90 Degree Side Mount will actually block the holes and not allow you to install the nuts and bolt to hold down your seat. In this case you will definitely want to use the Offset Side Mount.

The Planted Technology 90 Degree Universal Side Mounts are made to bolt directly to sliders but have multiple slots for adjustability when direct mounting (eliminating sliders).

Installing Planted Side Mounts onto Seat(s: Using the 4 bolts and washers from the Planted Side Mount Hardware Kit (order separately), loosely attach the Planted Side Mounts to the side of the seat(s).

The  end of the side mount with the column of slotted holes goes toward the front of the car, and the round holes goew toward the rear of the car.  The round holes are for the rear seat attachment because this is where the majority of the weight will be when sitting in the seat.

The flange of the side mounts go toward the seat with the Planted logo facing away from the seat.

To install the side mounts directly onto the seat mount you will need to drill your side mounts' hole pattern onto the Planted Seat Bracket -  If you are not using sliders and are instead fix mounting your seat and Planted Side Mounts to the Planted Seat Bracket you will need to drill your desired seating position's hole pattern onto the bracket.

Set your seat with Planted Side Mounts attached on the Planted Seat Bracket inside the vehicle. Sit in the seat and move it around to find your desired seating position making sure the door still closes and the seat does not interfere with any other necessary functions of the vehicle. If necessary, adjust the height and angle of the seat on the side mounts by utilizing different holes on the Planted Side Mounts.

Once you have found your desired seating position have a friend trace the slots or outside of the Planted Side Mounts onto the seat bracket with a pencil or similar tool. Now romove the seat and Planted Seat Bracket from the vehicle. You are almost ready to drill your holes.

If your friend was able to trace the slots onto the bracket you'll drill within them. If the outline of the Planted Side Mount was traced, you'll need to now trace the slots onto the bracket which may require removing the Planted Side Mounts from the seat to gain access.

Before you drill, double check the location of the holes. Once you are satisfied that you have the correct hole position, use a drill and metal drill bit to drill the hole pattern into the Planted Seat Bracket. The size of drill bit will vary depending on the hardware your're using.

*Once you have drilled into the Planted Seat Bracket it is not returnable or exchangeable for any reason.
