Re: swivel seat adaptor (gef73)

No quality issues. It does raise the seat up noticeably though. I managed to get the seat about 1/2" lower by turning the mounting studs upside down where the seat base mounts to the floor.

Are you talking about the adaptor that mounts on your existing seat base, or the one that comes with a new base (and 'safe'). I thought that the one with the new base kept the same seat height.

Re: swivel seat adaptor (rtt108)

I'm not sure, I didn't measure. It looks to be somewhere around 1.5". It is noticeable.
Flipping the studs over is done from the inside. It's very easy. Look where the seat base goes into the floor, remove the studs. Move the seat base out of the way, flip the studs over, reinstall. If you are planning on installing the swivel, that would be a good time to flip the studs.
The swivel seat is highly useful, but remember it will only work with the passenger side rear facing jumpseat removed.
