I've run that style set up for years and I never bothered with the slots. Straps wrapped over the plywood were plenty to hold it in place. I get into my drybox a lot so I put footman loops on the sides of the lid and run a strap through them and over the ply wood, then a quick twist of the latches and I'm in... food for thought.

Thanks for the info... its good to hear this is a proven method of mounting a seat.. I will be sitting on my kitchen box so it will be opened once a day.. I couldnt justify spending the money on a flip seat when I'm barely in this box.. plus this keeps me as low in the boat as possible.. that was my main concern with all the flip seats out there..
