INSTALLATION TIPS

SEAT COVER INSTALLATION TIPS 

THERE ARE TWO BASIC STYLES OF SEAT COVERS THAT WE MAKE.  THE SKI DOO AND MOTO SKI TYPE ARE A STAPLE ON COVER.  THE ARCTIC CAT STYLE IS A ZIP ON WITH SNAPS.  BELOW ARE SOME TIPS AND TRICKS TO MAKING THE INSTALLATION OF THE COVERS EASIER. 
 
STAPLE ON COVERS:
TAKE COVER OUT OF BOX AND PUT IN A WARM PLACE TO BECOME PLIABLE.
USE A GOOD ORIGINAL DRY FOAM AND WOODEN BASE.  IF FOAM HAS BEEN OUTSIDE IT WILL NEED TO COME IN WHERE IT IS WARM TO THOROUGHLY DRY OUT. 
PUT COVER OVER TOP OF FOAM BEING CAREFUL TO CENTER AND ALIGN FOR PROPER FIT.
STAPLE THE FRONT AND REAR EDGES FIRST MAKING SURE THE COVER IS PULLED TIGHT.  NEXT DO THE SIDES WATCHING FOR WRINKLES.  TURN SEAT OVER SEVERAL TIMES AS YOU STAPLE TO MAKE SURE IT IS GOING ON CORRECTLY.
SOME MODELS HAVE A TRUNK OR LIGHT.  THE TRUNK IS STAPLED IN AND CUT OUT AFTER THE COVER HAS BEEN INSTALLED OVER THE FOAM.
 
ZIP ON COVERS:
TAKE COVER OUT OF BOX AND PUT IN A WARM PLACE TO BECOME PLIABLE.
USE A GOOD ORIGINAL DRY FOAM.  IF FOAM HAS BEEN OUTSIDE IT WILL NEED TO COME IN WHERE IT IS WARM TO THOROUGHLY DRY OUT.
USE A LARGE PLASTIC GARBAGE BAG (33 GALLON SIZE) TO PUT OVER YOUR FOAM.  YOU CAN USUALLY TIE THE HANDLE TO KEEP IT IN PLACE.  THE BAG HELPS THE COVER SLIDE INTO PLACE A LOT EASIER.
PUTTING THE COVER OVER THE FOAM CAN BE CHALLANGING, IT WILL REQUIRE SOME WRESTLING AND PATIENCE AND FINALLY SOME TWEAKING. 
PUT THE FRONT PART OF THE COVER OVER THE FOAM FIRST.  SOME MODELS USE A ZIPPER IN THE FRONT FUEL TANK AREA TO MAKE THIS EASIER. 
WHEN THE FRONT IS IN PLACE AS FAR AS IT WILL GO BEND THE FOAM TO ALLOW THE BOTTOM AND REAR OF THE COVER CLEARANCE TO WORK IT'S WAY INTO PLACE.
NEXT YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK THE FOAM UP INTO ALL PARTS OF THE COVER, WATCHING CLOSELY AS YOU GO.
WHEN YOU HAVE THE COVER FITTED OVER THE FOAM CAREFULLY CLOSE THE ZIPPER.  YOU MAY HAVE TO PULL ON SIDES OF THE COVER TO HELP CLOSE THE ZIPPER. 
RECHECK THE COVER TO MAKE SURE THE FOAM IS UP IN EVERYWHERE IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE.  IF NECESSARY YOU CAN PULL AND TWIST ON THE SEAT.
IT IS NOW READY TO SNAP ON THE MACHINE.  MAKE SURE YOUR SNAPS ARE ALL IN GOOD SHAPE.  USUALLY START SNAPPING AT THE FRONT AND WORK TO THE BACK.  SOME MAY HAVE TO BE STRETCHED OTHERS MAY LOOK LOOSE UNTIL THE SEAT IS ON THE MACHINE.  OVER TIME THE COVER CONFORMS AND SHRINKS TO MAKE A TIGHT FIT AND ANY STRETCHING OR WRINKLES GO AWAY.
