Comparing Corbeau Sliders Video Transcript:
Welcome to CyberAuto TV! Some of you have asked us to do an episode on The differences between the single- And double-locking Corbeau brackets. Well, here is that episode! This Corbeau Custom Bracket will allow you To bolt any Corbeau bottom-mount seat Directly into a 78-98 Ford Mustang. Like any Corbeau custom bracket It comes standard with the single-locking slider you see here. You can recognize this as a single-locker Because this side slides freely, While you have to use this lever to move the other side. Once the seat is mounted, these will obviously slide together But will only be locked in place by the one side.
Here we have the components to turn a Corbeau custom-mount bracket into double-locking version. You can see the locking mechanisms on both of these sliders And it requires this U-shaped bracket To unlock them simultaneously So that the seat can be slid from front to rear.
If you have a Corbeau Custom Bracket With single-locking sliders It is possible to buy just these components at Racing-Seats-USA.Com And convert your bracket to a double locker. Simply remove the four Grade-5 Fasteners Using a 7/16” ratchet and combination wrench Swap the sliders, install the unlocking handle And you’re done! Of course, it is much easier And far more cost effective To simply order your Corbeau Custom Bracket With the optional Double-Locking Sliders As you see here. Besides saving you a bit of work The cost of the upgrade is less than half The cost of the double-locking components if purchased separately.
Personally, I have never heard of a case Where a Corbeau single-locking slider Failed to lock the seat in place when correctly engaged. However, if you are using your Corbeau Seat For sanctioned racing or aggressive offroad driving The small cost of upgrading is worth The confidence gained at the race track, rock climbing event, or whatever your venue of choice might be. I hope this has been helpful!
