Does anybody know of any tool or methods for getting to the bolts of a Corbin seat??? It's a PITA trying to pull the corners back

There is no other way but to bend the corner edges over slightly to position the hex key T handle in place it softens up eventually but the first couple of time is the hardest

Buy a set of these they work great for tight spots like that

If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

^^^ I didn't think about the T handle hex keys. Thanks... I asked an upholstery guy if he could make holes where the bolt goes but he quickly said no.

You would ruin the seat that way the T hex work great and at Harbour freight they are not that expensive and offer a great grip that helps out a lot
