A large majority of our dealers that we supply to have been in the business of golf carts for a very long time so they have seen many accessories and have installed various components on the carts so they may rarely even glance at the instruction sheet. Well it doesn’t matter if you have been selling carts for 5 years or 5 weeks it is always a good habit to take a look at the instruction sheets because sometimes styles change and suppliers are constantly modifying and improving designs.
Case in point our Club Car DS rear folding seats. Recently our supplier modified the design and increased the length of the supports for the step plate to produce a better feel when sitting on the rear seat. When they stretched this piece in added an additional filler plate. They also redesigned the armrests and added a horizontal bar so that the rear seat backs attach to the horizontal bar and not the standard seat back supports this caused some confusion because dealers were used to bolting the seat backs to the same support brace but this would create a greater angle than you would want. The addition of these two additional pieces caused some confusion but had the dealers glanced at the instructions before installation it could have been avoided and could have increased the install time dramatically.
So you never know when changes to current parts may take place and we will make every effort to notify you when they do but if you miss our email or notes it is always a good idea to read over the included instructions before you start your installs.
