Seat Configuration Tutorial

  1. Please read this page before proceeding.

  2. After you have read this page please take a couple of minutes to visually inspect your vehicles seat to identify what style of seat you want to cover. It is important that you pick the seat style that most closely resembles your vehicles.

  3. Find your seat in one of the seat style charts. The number in the box directly under the seat style is the corresponding number for that style. That number goes in the seat style box on the order form.

The following is description of the various seat styles to help you in identifying your vehicles seats.

BUCKET SEATS: Bucket seats only seat one person and come in several types: 

  1. LOW BACK models come up to about shoulder height on a seated person. Low back models, except in older cars, will always have a headrest that sits on top of the seat an in most cases can be adjusted up or down. They may have one or two armrests per seat. The armrests can be attached on the side of the seat or fold in to and out of a recess built in to the back rest.

  2. HIGH BACK models are taller and come up to mid or top of the head height on a seated person. High back models do not have separate headrests. They may have one or two armrests per seat. The armrests are attached on the side of the seat.

SOLID BENCH SEATS: Solid bench seats have a solid bottom cushion and a solid backrest cushion. They are designed to seat up to three people abreast. They sometimes have an armrest that folds up and down and stores in a recess in the backrest when not in use or in the case of Vans attaches to the side of the seat. They also have headrests if they are in a vehicle from the mid 80's on. The headrests may be independent of the seat mounted on a single or double post, or they may be molded as part of the seat backrest. They are primarily found as front seats in 4 door Cars, Trucks and some SUV's, rear seats in most Cars and middle and rear seats in SUV's and Vans.

SPLIT BACK OR SPLIT BOTTOM BENCH SEATS: On split back models the backrests are split to either allow them to fold forward for access to a rear seat or storage area, or to be spaced apart to accommodate an armrest. On split bottom models the bottom is split to be spaced apart to accommodate a console or transmission tunnel, or to allow access to a storage compartments under the seat as in the case of split bottom rear seats in trucks.

  1. SPLIT BACK BENCH models have a solid bottom cushion and a split backrest cushion. The backrest can be equally or unequally split. They are designed to seat up to three people abreast. They sometimes have a armrest in between the two backrest cushions. They also have headrests if they are in a vehicle from the mid 80's on. The headrests may be independent of the seat mounted on a single or double post, or they may be molded as part of the seat back rest. They are primarily found as front seats in 2 door cars, trucks and some SUV's.

  2. SPLIT BOTTOM BENCH models have a solid backrest cushion and a split bottom cushion. The bottom cushion may be equally or unequally split. They sometimes have a console or transmission tunnel in between the two bottom cushions.

SPLIT BENCH  SEATS: Split bench seats are confusing because there are so many variations. Basically a seat is a split bench if it meets the following criteria: 

  1. Three people can theoretically sit abreast on the seat, (usually there are three sets of seat belts to accommodate this). 

  2. The split seat allows the drivers and passengers seat to be adjusted forward and backward independent of each other, or in the case of rear split seats they can be folded up and down independent of each other. 

These seats come in various configurations that mathematically identify how the seat is split. A 60/40 split bench front seat means that approximately 60% of the seat is on the drivers side of the vehicle and 40% is on the passengers side, (the drivers side percentage is listed first). A 40/20/40 seat has 40% on the drivers side, 20% for the middle seat and 40% for the passengers seat. The percentages should add up to 100%.

Sometimes the bottom cushion and backrest cushion are split in different proportions. This usually occurs when there is a foldable center armrest in between two back rest cushions. This back rest configuration can be identified as 45/10/45. 45% is for the drivers back rest, 10% is for the space taken up by the armrest and 45% is for the passengers.
