Seat cleat

I ordered parts today to install a seat cleat system. I didn't buy the kit from Flying Scot, so I'm on my own for installation. Can anyone offer any tips for placement? What kind of backing did you use? (wood block, washers, etc.)

I created my own seat cleats with a 2:1 sheeting.

I created my own seat cleats with a 2:1 sheeting. Very easy to release in heavy air. I used some 1x4 underneath the seat and used washers. Regarding placment, I went almost straight down from the jib blocks. At the most the seat cleats are mounted 2" aft of the jib blocks. Good Luck...
