Original Todd seats on 2001 228 Seafarer.

Anyone know where to find these springs that lock the seat ?

Todd is still in business. Maybe see if they offer parts?

Don't know if your seats are TODD but your parts are not listed on the TODD website. The simplest fix ( but not the cheapest) would be to replace the slider mechanisms. I would assume that other pieces of yours are somewhat worn out too.
A second possibility is to find a machine shop that can cut and bend some stainless rod in the correct size to make new springs. I have no idea what that might cost.

To answer my own post. I found the springs.
Todd said they are discontinued and I would probable need to replace the slide.
Found these :
90X0.776 X 0.095 Lh Gardner Torsion Sp SS
MSC-00043869


2
$5.96
$11.92


They are torsion springs

Last time I went through this exercise I bought the entire kit which includes the springs and the sliders....it wasn't terribly expensive. Maybe $40-$50 per seat?
