Alloy Side Mounts
Cobra Seats alloy side mounts manufactured from 5 mm high-tensile aluminum for superior quality, fitment, and strength. FIA Approved. Available in black powder coat with Cobra livery only. NOTE: Cobra Seats are only approved for usage with Cobra Seats original side mounts as per FIA Homologation. Use of any other mountings will invalidate the seats FIA approval and will also invalidate it's warranty. Use only the bolts originally supplied with your Cobra Seat. Minimum specification: M8 X 1.25, 12.9 tensile strength. FIA mandates that you must use mounts constructed from a minimum of 3mm steel plate or 5mm aluminum. If you are not using Cobra side mounts then your seat may not be eligible for certain events or sanctioning bodies as the seat is only FIA approved with the manufactures mounts. If you are using a proprietary mount from another manufacture, please consult with your race sanctioning body before installation. On most mounts, you will find that one set of holes (to the seat) are slotted to allow the changing radius length when adjusting height and angle of the seat. These slots in the side mounts are designed to be used at the front, thereby placing the majority of the load from the seat on the back holes, which are holes with less tolerance and therefore capable of higher loads.
