I like the paint idea! I'll have to do that. I'm always guessing where it needs to be so the seat locks back. I too went with the zip tie route. Tried drilling, but my drill wimped out, and it was a disaster. I tried the zip tie in desperation and it worked out better than I expected!
Just did this with drilling holes in the little handles. From there, I put a small zip tie in it along with a paracord, which has a key ring on the other end. Great mod and about the first one I've done to my 2011 SCrew.
Enough already that this rear back seat in the driver side can be folded down. Just to see somethings what is in there.....
No string attached to the headrest, I don't use it as my storage or something else.
