Easy to instal and quality product, much better than the factory seat stops. The ring tie downs are also a nice benefit.

Q: Is this price of the Saf-T-Steo each or for a pair?

The Saf-T-Stop's are priced and sold as a pair.

Q: Are the installation instructions included with the Saf-T-Stop?

Yes, the instructions are included in the box.

Q: How does the Saf-T-Stop anchor to the seat rail? Does it require the use of one of the holes in the rail surface?

Please refer to the 'Documents' tab. There is a PDF available with the installation instructions that will illustrate how the Saf-T-Stop's are installed.

Q: Does the placard pn:8601 come with this pair of SAF-T-STOPS?

Yes, each order of our part # 13-18510 comes with two placards, mfg # 8601.

Q: Seat tracks P/N MC 0511000-14 and MC 0511000-15 are installed in my 170B. Are these safety stops compatible with these seat rails?

Yes. They will work with those seat tracks.

Q: The way the instructions read, you have to loosen and tighten these on each boarding. Is that right? Can these be used as permanent secondary stops that seem better than the small tab bars that are attached by screws? Thanks

That is correct. Once you move your seat to the desired seating position you reach back and butt the seat stops to the back of seat and tighten them down. When you are ready to exit the plane you loosen the screw and you are then able to move the seat back. They cannot be used to replace the secondary stops legally.

Q: Is it possible to purchase and replace just the eye bolt on the SAF-T-STOP?

Per the manufacturer: The new eyebolt cannot be legally inserted into an old seat stop without the placard on the seat stop reading no tie down. So if you retro fit an old stop with a new eyebolt, the aircraft loses it air worthiness according to the FAA and the Insurance company, if there is any type of incident. We highly discourage this planned course of action. You should replace the entire Saf-T-Stop. That would keep you on the good side of the FAA and insurance company.

Q: Is the primary purpose to prevent the seat from sliding back into an aircraft stall?

This is designed to restrict rearward motion if the seat lock fails.

Q: Yes, they DO work and are APPROVED for a C-170 !

Thank you for notifying us of this. We will post it for others to view.

Q: Is this an STC item? Does it require a 337 form?

Yes, these are STC Approved. Please see Documents section for details.
