If you are going to be taking them in and out every day [I do a lot of re-config in my seating arrangement] - I made my own handles with a pair of zip ties.

- Take 1 zip tie and make it into a loop. this is your handle.
- Take the second zip tie and use it to clamp your loop onto the little gray arm [the thing you pry with the screw driver]

Simple!

Lightbulb Best solution for seat handles

I have found what I think is the best solution for this issue. Run down to your local Japanese or KTM motorcycle dealership and buy two or three MSR Spring Hooks. These are made to remove the pretty powerful springs that hold the exhaust pipe onto a 2-stroke dirt bike. They fit perfectly into the holes in the seat bases and don't come jumping out like the other workarounds tend to do. The part number (Tucker Rock Distributing) is 342112. At $9.99 they are a bargain.

Finally got around to taking a photo of my zip-tie method too.

Not as shiny as the spring hook tool though.

I removed the rear double seat and put it in storage. I was able to pop the handles from that seat off and insert them in the seat in front of the back row. Now if I need some quick extra cargo room I can just pull that row out. Robert Kay I do like that tool you found. Looks like it would work great.
