Quick-Release Seat Hardware Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Quick-Release Seat Hardware Bolt I know, it is the little things that make a statement and this piece of Hardware does stand our with style. Looks 100% better than the stock flat screw head bolt that was there. Easy to install and fit perfectly on my Softail Deluxe with no issues. Nice styling and makes the removal of the back set a breeze with no tools required. Nice! Highly Recommend and you won't break the bank for the part either. Thanks Harley !

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid... A bit pricey. Good quality. Clean look. Hard steel. You can snug down with a pliers and the bolt won't get marred.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works, but Works great, looks great, just make sure you really tighten it down. I've lost two that have backed out from bike vibration on 500+ mile rides.
