Tipping the backrest over onto the cushion makes a table for filling out delivery sheets, while flipping the whole seat over reveals an under-seat storage bin and allows the load to be accommodated.
Plastic buckets, medium-density fiberboard, and borrowed carpet tiles create comfortable bench seating with a raked backrest .
Lifting the backrest restores both seat base and head restraints, with no seat belt manoeuvring required.
So, jam a hand down hard against the backrest of the car seat, grasp the strap adjustment bit (basically just the other end of the same strap) and pull it horizontally away from the child restraint to tighten.
He settled on the bench, resting his feet on the seat beside me and perching atop the stone backrest .
The base is short, giving poor support under the legs, while the backrest is not body-gripping enough for cornering and lacks lumbar support.
In the event of a severe impact from the rear, the seat backrest and head restraint accompany the movements of the seat occupant's body.
The chair is also available with adjustable armrests, a height-adjustable backrest and variable seat depths, whereby the active lumbar support is always in the correct position.
The front seats also have a longer cushion to provide more leg support and the backrest is wider at the shoulders - great for the well built motorist who doesn't like confinement.
Conceptually, this project is like building a toy chest with corner guards that serve as legs; the rear legs are taller to support the backrest .
