How to install a RIB Seat:

The Kiravans RIB Seat Installation Kit includes all the high-tensile steel nuts, bolts & washers you will need to complete your installation. Installation of the RIB seat should take about half a day if you have the right tools to hand. Full step-by-step instructions with photos are included but in brief, the process is:

  1. Remove the plastic under-van covers and drop down the rear end of your exhaust pipe.
  2. Bolt the Kiravans under floor seat installation bracket to your chassis (exact locations are defined in the instructions).
  3. Drill up from beneath the van using the pre-drilled holes in the bracket as a guide.
  4. Place your seat over these holes and drop the two central rear bolts down.
  5. Mark the forward mounting holes from above using the RIB seats reinforced bolt holes as your guide.
  6. Move the seat aside and drill down for these forward bolts.
  7. Re-position the seat and drop all the bolts through, then fit washers and nuts.


RIB Fitting Kit STATUS Test Report

STATUS: The Kiravans RIB Seat fitting system has been pull tested with a 112cm RIB seat, in-vehicle, to the latest EC safety standards at STATUS Lab and witnessed by TUV Deutschland. It passed with rock-solid performance. We even did the test using a RIB seat with a slider mechanism fitted, as this makes the seat heavier and the test forces higher. 

Note:The Kiravans system has not been homologated by UTAC or TUV. It will not be possible to get your vehicle homologated in France or Germany with this system.
