The NRS Universal Seat Mount is a handy solution to affixing a swivel seat or rowing seat to your NRS Cross Bars. Like the rest of NRS Frame Bar components, the NRS Universal Seat Mount uses U-bolts for a snug and secure fit to your frame bar. The contact point between the Seat Mount and the Frame Crossbar is designed in a way that grips and holds in position with very little slipping, keeping you locked in while rowing in all conditions.
- Hot-forged aluminum construction aligns the crystalline structure of the metal, creating a super strong piece that is also lightweight.
- U-bolt attachment system lets you position your seat where you want it and adjust the angle.
- Molded ridges on the gripping surfaces provide excellent holding strength.
- Universal bolt holes accept NRS standard or swiveling seats.
- There are two sets of bolt holes. The outer set, 7" x 7.5", match with our padded raft seats. The inner set has elongated holes that accommodate seat bolt patterns of 4 3/4"-5 1/2" x 4 3/4"-5 1/2".
- Includes two coined (flattened curve) U-bolts, four washers and four nylon lock nuts.
Pro Tip: This mount is designed for NRS cross bars, which means it will also work for the LD (Light Duty) Frames from downriver equipment!

Refitting an old NRS Bighorn Frame
I am rebuilding an old NRS Bighorn frame from the 80's to fit a new Aire Super Puma. I did not want to cut the old seat cross bar as the seat plate is welded on that old model crossbar, and I might need it in the future for a larger raft frame. So I bought another piece of AL tubing, cut it to size and added the LoPro fittings and the seat mount, I was pleasantly surprised that the old NRS seat holes lined up with the new seat mount, so no additional plates had to be fabricated. NRS seems to think their accessories are gold plated, so it was nice that CKS had the seat mount on sale, which made the price more tolerable. Overall, I was pleased how it all worked out!
So glad everything worked out well for you! Looks like you have a fairly versatile frame. Thanks for your review, John/
