Default 1875 Impact XS make rear seats movable

I am looking to make the rear seats removable when I want more floor space and easy access to the livewell. Thinking of replacing the hinges with hinges with pins that allow removal. Anyone done this? Hardware recommendations.
Thanks,
Jim

Jim, I have a 1775 XS and I don’t see how you could remove the jump seats as the starting battery sits under the jump seat. I think you could do that with the Impact sport model not sure about the XS model, the starting battery would be exposed unless you plan to move it as well.

I misspoke. This is an impact sport with hinges that allow the seats to flop down for a casting deck.

Jim,
Here you go:

https://www.amazon.com/Guden-Stainle...ts_id=16412651

Replace your current seat hinges with these hinges.

Any time that you want to remove the seats - fold to expose the hinge, then squeeze the two pins together and the hinge comes apart.

To install, reverse the procedure.

Or, possibly these take apart hinges:

Or possibly these hinges that go by the name - "Quick release" hinges:

https://www.amazon.com/Sugatsune-HG-.../dp/B00GKZD6K0

https://www.ebay.com/p/1018377398

https://www.mscdirect.com/product/details/03996972

Good price on this hinge. Don't know about the cost of shipping:

Take care

Some great ideas REW, thanks. I am not sure if they will have the needed load capacity.
when the deck is down and used as a fishing deck the hinge could have 200# on it.

Jim,
If you are concerned about weight, consider these hinges:

https://www.amazon.com/Sugatsune-HG-...NEB02PRZGH1HMT

These hinges are 100 mm high - or nearly 4 inches, 6 screw holes to mounting, 6 mm hinge pin which is a touch under 1/4 inch.

I would imagine that these hinges are larger and stronger than the current hinges holding the seats right now.

Best wishes.
