HOW TO: Fold Down Rear Seats of SuperCrew F150's (2009-2014 & 2015+)

To Fold Down a Super Crew Backseat

1. Fold up the lower portion of the seat. (This moves the seatback forward a little, to get your hand between the seat back and the truck wall)

2. With your left hand palm facing toward the back of the truck and thumb down, slide your hand between the backseat and the real wall.

3. Use your thumb to lift up on the lock lever. (See photo)

4. While holding the lock lever up, pull the rear seat lift latch to lower the bottom pad the whole seat (bottom and back) should fold down.

5. You can also use the round end of a box wrench, instead of your thumb, to lift the lever (MUCH EASIER OPTION)



Note: This is how to fold down both rear seats in the 2009-2014 models as well as the drivers side rear seat in the 2015+ models. The 2015+ F150's already have a strap installed from factory present on the passenger rear seat.




Many people finagle their own device using a keychain and paracord or some other contraption. Below are a few companies who make their own brackets with straps to assist in folding the seats down. The Built Right Industries model is the same exact thing as the Seven Sparta model, FYI.

Edited post to include a step-by-step instruction as well as a video. Also, added links to companies who make a bracket for easy seat release.

I'm going to be building a killer stereo system in my truck and having access to the back wall gives a great spot for mounting components that would otherwise be under seats and possibly worse places.
