Accessories you receive along with the Shooting Platform System

 

Ammo Tray

The ammo tray has been designed to provide a convenient and safe place to store your ammo be it pellets or bullets and fits easily to the front arm of the Combo Chair .The design allows you to maintain the tray in a level position no matter what angle you have the front arm set The tray is an all aluminium construction with a foam pad in the bottom to help with any unwanted noise. Adjustment is made simply by way of a thumb screw  • Approx weight 430 g

Padded Seat Cushion

We decided to make this extra cushion after some of our customers requested a little more comfort when sitting for extra long periods of time. It’s a simple add-on that will fit any existing Idleback chair and simply pulls over the existing cushion and secures in place with a draw string apron that locks with a simple toggle so it won’t slip around or fall off. Made from a weather proof vinyl outer shell with a waterproof Pu nylon inner that encases a 2” foam pad. It adds the extra comfort that some of our customers need while only adding around 215 grams in weight.

Mud and Sand Plates

George Digweed was one of the first to request this particular product after extensive testing with his own Idleback chair. Designed to cope with softer ground or where extra force is been applied to the chair, trebling the chairs footprint helps to stop sinking. Simple to attach, sliding over the existing feet secured in place with the hand wheels provided. Made from 4mm alloy they compliment the already robust construction of the Idleback Combo Chair.

Padded Holdall

We decided to make our own bags after trying various bags on the market, some, from leading suppliers, but could not find one that we were happy to put our own name on. The bag is made with a tough grade Cordura outer and inner, with padding between the 2 layers. It has a rigid removable divider that has a pocket at one end, for the clutch unit and other bits, and pieces, there is also a rigid, removable floor. Although designed to hold the chair, the bag also doubles as a great kit bag and comes with a shoulder strap as well as two short handles and does an excellent job of protecting its contents from the rigors of the field.

Hard Standing Feet

The hard standing feet were designed to give more flexibility to the chair when its been used on a hard surface, for example, target shooting or on a range also where the surface may be damaged using the standard spiked feet i.e on timber floors etc Simple to attach or un-attach just 1 thumb screw on each leg no tools required.

Weatherproof Chair Cover

Made from a very tough waterproof fabric the cover has a draw string base to make sure it stays in place while keeping the worst of the elements from your Idleback chair This cover does not form part of an escapology act and is simply there to cover the chair left out in the field or on the back of your truck

Idleback Chair Base Mount Accessory

 

Base Mount Accessory

This kit consists of 3 purpose made ratchet type strap 3 anchor points (lashing loops) including nuts & bolts Drilling template with step by step instructions and pictures. The kit allows you to fix an Idleback chair to a flat base, which in most cases will be a piece of 3/4″ plywood. Used in the back of a vehicle. This becomes a highly effective mobile shooting platform rotating 360 degrees putting you in a position to shoot much quicker as you no longer have to line the vehicle up with the target. You will need to cut a piece of 3/4″ plywood (not supplied) so that it fits snugly to the base of the truck or Mule etc, use the base mount kit to fix the chair to the plywood and lay it in the back of the vehicle, no need to fix the ply to the truck as long as it is fits snugly and doesn’t slop about, you are ready to go. The Kit also works well on the top of high towers.

Please Note – It is not designed for a person to be sat on the chair whilst the truck is moving.

Customer Feedback

Tommy O’Rourke / September 22, 2011

I just purchased the idleback shooting chair. I am no how or no way affiliated with the company or getting anything for sending you this email. I am an engineer by trade, and let me tell you That this chair is unbelievable and can not be matched by any other. I am a shooter and hunter, and sometimes video guy for my kids soccer. This chair does not get any justice on what you see on you tube or the website. It is machined with detail and functionality is off the charts. I never review anything I buy, this thing is just plain sick. I got the bag with mine and wish I would have gotten more accessories. Would have saved on shipping some, Oh well. If you shoot, you can Tack Drive with this setup, and portable enough for blinds and carrying in field. You have to convert cost from British pounds to us dollar, its simple Google it. Amanda and the customer service team are responsive and the chair is here with a blink of an eye. You can tell they are not some big company out there that doesn’t care about you or the product they back up. Good luck on your decision and take care!

Tommy O’Rourke / September 22, 2011

All i can say is WOW! This is a perfectly desighned, and engineered piece of Equipment. I am totally amazed at the detail, and the website pictures do this no justice. Simply Brilliant! I am totally satisfied with the customer service and follow through from your team and thank them all for me. I will be ordering more accessories tomorrow, as I have been running the chair through its paces! Cheers and thanks to you and yours again.

Steve Champion / September 22, 2011

Arrived today as promised, all present and correct and I have to say I’m impressed. I’ve been a keen shooter for 25 years- airgun, shotgun and rifle at both competetive target level and live game shooting. I’ve had most gadgets, toys and gizmos over the years including the rcbs rass system, with which I was disappointed with it’s lack of rifle stabity. I was tempted with buying an Idleback for over a year now but finally took the plunge after a particularly uncomfortable nv session last week- the weight of the gun, nv scope, bipod and mod stressed and strained me to the point of pain- not something I relished! Having just bought a dr bob converter and another ir adding yet more weight, something had to be done! Tonight I assembled
it(easy) and sat on the lawn gazing around the garden in full 360′ ir illuminated bliss- pain free, strain free and looking forward to a full field test on fri eve. I’m also the owner of a 4×4 pick up and am looking forward to strapping my shooting buddy on the ‘crows nest’ for some mobile foxing!! I’ve read the negative comments on YouTube regarding the price and
mobility- ignore it! These guys wouldn’t spend this much on their rifle and
scope- my various kits are worth thousands and for the extra comfort and flexibility, £340 is a steal!

So well done- great service, product and excellent build quality. To be recommended. Unless it breaks Friday in which case there’ll be hell to pay! Lol
Keep up the good work, I’ll be in touch soon for more accessories, I’m sure!

Update!
Took it out as promised and it performed flawlessly. Had it mounted in the back of the truck with myself and 2 buddies taking turns lamping- all 3 of us were impressed and rate it highly. We had the hard surface feet firmly planted on a sheet of ply with a strap going across the bed and around 2 of the legs and it was stable and safe- I’ll be bolting the feet to the ply next make it semi fixed- the feet undo in minutes. We shot both right and left handed out to 100yds with HMR and did some nv with .22 at rats- no problems at all- safe, sturdy and imminently rotatable. So in summary- no hell to pay!

Regards

steve

About Idleback Shooting Platforms

Idleback Chairs was was established as a family run business in 2008. The concept, design and prototype of the chair came into being a good two years before that.

I took up shooting as a hobby after retiring from a long career  in the printing industry. I tried lots of equipment and accessories, ending up with some I was pleased with and probably just as many which now gather dust in the garage ! This probably sounds familiar.

Cutting a long story short, after years of trial and error, Improvisation to find a suitable platform from which to do the various types of shooting I wanted to do, I decided I needed something tailored-made for myself. I drew a pencil picture of roughly what I had in mind, I gave this to my son-in-law Darren and asked him “to design and make me a chair something like this“. It took 6 months and 5 attempts to get the chair to fit me. Once I was up and running, I asked Darren to make two more, 1 for my brother Den and another for my other shooting buddy Vin.

Over the following six months we used our chair to great success, it was then we realized the chair had great potential, so Darren set about designing the chair with all the necessary adjustments to fit different size people and shooting styles.

After considerable time and effort with many refinements, not to mention the significant financial investment, we now have a production version of the chair, along with complimentary accessories which cover every eventuality, which collectively is aptly names “The Idleback Shooting Platform System“.

In the UK we have in excess of 1000 happy customers, many of which have become personal friends and we hope to repeat this success with our friends in the USA.

Kind Regards and Happy Shooting,

Trev, Darren, Mandy and Di

and all the team at Idleback
