Step 1. To engage the front of the seat, you'll need to line up three contact points. First, there are two hooks that engage with two rubber stoppers, and then there is also a U-shaped slot that must fit over a knob on the ATV.
Step 2. Get the seat back into position on the ATV. Check underneath the front of the seat to see if the hooks and the slot roughly line up with the stoppers and the knob.
