Bought a Hartco seat here, only to find out it doesn't
come with the small pad attached to the seat, this
would be at the bottom of the passengers back rest.
For those of you that have bought a seat from Hartco
what did you do ? Any ideas ?.

I have a Hartco big boy seat. On my seat there isn't enough room for the small pad as it raised my passenger seat up as well. On a normal size Hartco there may be a pad.

There is a leather spacer between the passenger backrest and passenger seat. If you can’t get one call Mark at Hartco seats and have him make you one. We have them on both of our Interstates.

Thank you I'll do that was just curious if that was
the norm ? Seems odd it wouldn't come complete ?...

You bought a brandnew Hartco seat direct from Hartco and that piece didn’t come with it ? That just doesn’t sound right, I would definitely be calling Hartco about it.
To me that extra piece seems like a very foolish design by Hartco, because the piece isn’t actually attached to the seat many folks have lost it, I happen to have a used Hartco seat from a wing I bought used and the same piece is missing, the previous owner said it just turned up missing one day and he had no idea where or why it’s gone.
Please be sure to let us know what Hartco has to say about your missing part.

Yes I did buy it from a member here, ok so I called Hartco
today and explained my problem.I was told there is no
actual "pad" that goes there, what it's supposed to be is
a piece of the same seat material that velcro's on somehow.
I didn't get that piece so I'm having them make me one of course
more $$. I'll see how it looks after install it kinda wish I would have
know that going in but that's on me lol :) I still like the seat going to
give it a test ride today 😊

Not sure about the Big Boy seat....but I’ve purchased several seats from Hartco...all of them were furnished with the filler strip. If you bought the seat used...and the piece was not included or disclosed as missing...maybe the seller will step up. It’s always “buyer beware/informed” when purchasing used. B.

That’s a 5yr(ish) old Diamond seat...but basically the same as a Hartco. I by either and the only difference between them to me, is the stitching pattern. I don’t know if it’s me or the seats...but after 2 or 3 years I’m ready for a new one. B.

I’ve had a few over the years. They come with filler, passenger backrest cover and seat.

He got cheap for awhile and the fillers weren’t much more than a piece of material you used double sided tape to secure it.
