Sitting Attachment for Hoverboards - HoverSeat™.

Invention that makes a hoverboard safer and more fun!

New V2.0 is now in stock. New version has improved performance wheels for better, smoother ride, and re-enforced steel axles.

Introducing new product that converts a standard hoverboard into an ingenious hands-free mini electric vehicle! We created patent pending HoverSeat to solve the problems typically associated with hoverboards and we have created a new, fun mode of transport that virtually anyone can drive. As well as being easy for any age to steer and operate, the HoverSeat is comfortable, versatile and has many practical uses.

Benefits of HoverSeat:

  • Simple to set up: The hoverboard cart is a light aluminum frame which fits easily in the trunk of the car. When you want to use it, simply attach it to the bar in the center of your hoverboard with the specially adapted clamp - and then choose what you would like to go on top of your unique mini-vehicle.
  • Comfortable: Attach your favorite beach chair to the platform, relax, and drive! Perhaps you prefer a fishing chair, a bicycle seat, a box with a cushion, or something else? Any box or seat that can stand on a flat surface and is strong enough to support your weight can be installed on the hoverboard cart. Attach a cooler box and ride it to the beach!Easy to drive: Navigate the hoverboard using only your feet; it can even reverse. The hoverboard cart can be used on or off-road, and can ride over grass, gravel, and packed sand.
  • Practical: The hoverboard cart is ideal for a cooler box that is strong enough to sit on. Use the hoverboard cart to tow a wheeled cart and then transport bags, boxes, groceries, or a paddle board, or use it to transport heavy or awkward tools. The hoverboard cart is strong enough to pull a kayak down to the beach.
  • No need to carry your hoverboard ever again: Use the hoverboard cart to transport your hoverboard back home or back to the car when the charge has gone.
  • Safer than a hoverboard: No more falling off when the hoverboard hits a crack or bump in the pavement - and sitting is far safer than standing.

BELOW ARE ACTUAL CUSTOMER'S RESPONSES ON FOLLOW UP EMAILS. OVERALL, 99% OF CUSTOMERS HAS BEEN HAPPY WITH PRODUCT. \r\n\r\nI love it! I actually have three! I convinced my boss to buy two as well. \r\n\r\nI absolutely love my hover chart!! The looks and people stopping me on the street to see what it is, how to get one I always tell them about your website and not to accept any imitations.\r\n\r\nI recently purchased the hoverseat and I love it, I ride it every where and people stop me and ask about it . I ‘m 63 yrs. Old and I can get full use of my hoverboard ,this thing goes over grass sand gravel , places that have been to far to walk are not now. I highly recommend this product to everyone.. thank you very much this is a great invention!\r\n\r\nHoverseat, super fun, we tool around it in the office, and attached toy lightsabers to the bottom so we have some under-frame lighting, as it feels like that was required. Only complaint is how much it smelled, I think the tires were quite ripe for a while.\r\n\r\nGreat product, easy and fun to use.\r\n\r\nLove the hover seat. I just need to keep the speed down to avoid crashing. Would love to have a speed limiter on the hover board to activate when attached to the seat. \r\n\r\nThe Hover seat is a riot. I keep it at my office and there is at least always someone zipping around on it.\r\n\r\nMy wife and I love our hoverseats! We used them pretty extensively this summer and still ride them occasionally now that it's getting chillier. INCREDIBLY useful. We have a park that's about a half mile from our house that we use them to ride to. We'll tow our grill and our cooler and have a picnic hoverseat convoy. We decked out our beach chairs with EL-wire and have bike lights on the fronts and backs for night riding safety. Next purchase for us will be a tall flag for more visibility. \r\n\r\nI am completely happy and satisfied but if the unit could be improved further I'd say customization on length and width, maybe a way to make it able to be able to turn tighter, and/or an ability to wheel the hoverboard lower when dragging it or maybe the seat has 4 wheels like luggage to reduce weight for people with disabilities moving it around. Latter two if even possible I don't know. Just my two cents. I recommend this product and don't recommend a hoverboard without it. \r\n\r\nI love the HoverSeat! Works great, but the clamp has been damaged due to a couple of unintended sharp turns!! I'm 59 years old and feel to unbalanced to stand on my Hoverboard,... the seat really lets me enjoy my Hoverboard in the neighborhood! (Neighbors get a kick out of seeing me tootle around!)\r\n\r\nEnjoying the Hover Seat. Everything is just as described in your advertisements and video. I am anxiously awaiting for your new packable version (I don't know your name for it). If you need testers, I volunteer. I am 70 years old, 6'4" tall and about 225. I think I would be helpful to you for the people who hope to use your product as a mobility aid, especially if the battery restrictions are lifted.I would suggest you consider marketing the seat attachment with the floor, 9 inches (or about} swivel and plastic boat seat, even better would be the seat with padding. I think with the almost impossibility of Medicare funding a mobility device, your product would be an affordable option. I can be reached at the methods below in my signature.\r\n\r\nI am very happy with the quality and design of the hover seat with one exception. The clamp loosens up and i find myself having to turn and tighten the black knob to retighten several times during use. Have you thought about using a different type of nut that could help keep this from loosening? With that all said i am still very happy with the product and so are the rest of my family. I have recommended this to several others as i believe this is a great idea for those who have a hoverboard. My wife was ready to have me get rid of my board until i found your hoverseat. Thank you.\r\n\r\nThank-you for your email. I am enjoying the HoverSeat. I especially enjoy watching the grandkids using them (I bought two). I have two small issues. The latch on the clamp seems to open while in use too easily. Also, I wish there were a more positive way to hook the “trailered” one and to keep it centered. But, then I suppose you’d have to raise the price. \r\nI also have a Ninebot Mini and am going to convert one the HoverSeats to use with it. All-in-all an extremely cool deal. \r\n\r\nHello just a reply on how much I enjoy my Hoverseat. It is very useful at car shows I attend. Weather on a chair or a cooler it gets lot looks and attention everywhere we take it. \r\n\r\nThanks for the note. The Hoover seat has been great overall. A few things you may want to consider: The clip for the attachment that goes on the hover board is not great. Mine was manufactured crooked and it does not stay closed over bumps. The pins in the clip have actually come off and I had to bend them to to get it back not shape. Overall, have been amazed at how the set up moves around. Our board goes fast and can carry a lot of weight.\r\n\r\nWe love the hoverseat. Finally those stupid cheap hover boards aren’t actively trying to kill the kids. \r\n\r\nI absolutely love my hoverseat! Get so many compliments on it.\r\n\r\nThe attachment is great I go faster on it and everybody seems to really like it.\r\n\r\nMy family and I love the attachment it's a real head Turner I look forward to using it for many years. \r\n\r\nI took it camping, everyone just loved it had so much fun.\r\nThe clasp on the clamp broke needs to be a little stronger.\r\n

Q. What is included with the HoverSeat?
A. The HoverSeat product includes: aluminum frame that requires simple assembly, two pneumatic wheels, plastic clamp that secures to the middle of the hoverboard, two Velcro tie downs and a product manual. Also included as a free bonus is one plastic T-handle that can be installed in order to provide an additional option for pulling a cart by hand, if needed. Depending on the time of production there might be a pre-installed rubber layer on top of the frame, or rubber self-adhesive tape might be provided as an option to attach on top of the HoverSeat frame as needed.

Q. What hoverboard do you recommend for HoverSeat?
A. If you don't have yet a hoverboard, and thinking about buying one to use with HoverSeat, then we suggest getting 10" hoverboard with pneumatic wheels. Its feel very nice to ride, can be used off-road, and provide most comfortable ride. Small 6" hoverboard with non-pneumatic rubber wheels feels too bumpy and hard on a regular urban pavement that is covered with cracks and joints. Hoverboards with 6" wheels can be used on a smooth asphalt or concrete surface, but become rough on a pavement with multiple cracks, blocks and bricks type of pavements. HoverSeat clamps will not work with 8" wheels hoverboards, because they don't have round middle part. Also, 6" hoverboard with all flat top also will not work with our round clamp.

Q. How fast and how long can the HoverSeat ride?
A. The HoverSeat's overall performance fully relies on the hoverboard it’s attached to. How fast and how long the HoverSeat will ride depends on numerous factors, including road conditions, weight load, hoverboard battery capacity and motor power rating. It is recommended that all wheels be fully inflated to the maximum allowed pressure to provide the best performance. Softer wheels will reduce vibration but will also drain the battery more quickly, as core power is required to turn underinflated wheels.

Q. Is it possible to damage a hoverboard with the HoverSeat?
A. We extensively tested the HoverSeat with weights up to 230 lbs, and there was no physical damage to the hoverboard's structure or internal parts. We even towed two people with a total weight well over 300 lbs with no damage to the hoverboard. However, depending on the weight of a rider and the manner of operation, it might be possible to scratch the surface of the hoverboard in the area where the clamp attaches to the hoverboard. The clamps are covered with a soft protective layer, but it still might be possible to slightly scratch the hoverboard's painted surface. Therefore, if keeping the hoverboard looking flawless is a concern, we recommend applying optional protective skins or attaching clear scotch tape at the area where the HoverSeat clamp touches the hoverboard.

Q. How do I install the T-handle?
A. The T-handle is an optional item that can be installed by the customer if needed. It is provided for additional convenience if it becomes necessary to pull the HoverSeat with the hoverboard on top. You will need to use a flat screwdriver to pull out the rectangular plastic end cap from the end of the front pull tube, then slide the T-handle into the opening and secure it with the provided screw at the bottom of the pull tube.

Q. Is it possible to fall from a HoverSeat?
A. The short answer is YES. As with any other type of vehicle, there are always risks associated with its operation due to various reasons. The HoverSeat operates attached to the hoverboard. Therefore, its performance strongly depends on the hoverboard's characteristics and user experience. If, during forward movement, the hoverboard stops suddenly either due to its failure or the operator's failure to properly engage the pressure sensors, that might result in a fall forward and possible injuries. Some inferior hoverboard models might have faulty pressure and gyroscopic sensors that can fail during operation. Therefore, it is imperative to drive slowly when using the HoverSeat for the very first time, and take time to accustom yourself to the HoverSeat's behavior and hoverboard operations. The customer should wear protective gear, such as a helmet and knee and wrist pads during HoverSeat operation. The customer should hold on to the chair to provide additional support in case of sudden stops, which may cause them to slide forward. Please read all posted warnings and the owner's manual before operating the HoverSeat. Please inspect all HoverSeat components before each ride for loose screws or cracks in the clamp attached to the hoverboard. However, it also should be noted that even though the remote risk of injury might still exist while operating the HoverSeat, it is much less severe than the type of injuries associated with falling from a hoverboard while standing.

Q. Does the HoverSeat work with all hoverboards?
A. Currently, the HoverSeat clamp is designed to work only with hoverboards that have a rounded middle part, like most 6” and 10” hoverboards. Some hoverboards might not have a rounded center, and therefore, the clamp will not wrap properly around it. So-called Lamborghini 8” hoverboards do not have rounded middles and therefore are not compatible with the current design of the HoverSeat clamp. In the future, we might offer an improved clamp that can go over any type of hoverboard.

Q. What kind of seating works with the HoverSeat?
A. The HoverSeat is a versatile platform that is compatible with many DIY seating solutions. The most simple seating solution would be to mount your favorite beach chair. An inexpensive low-profile sand chair will work just fine for this purpose and will be widely available in many retail stores. You can also mount a large cooler that is designed to support human weight, a storage box or even a folding fishing chair with a pedestal on top of a plywood board that is then attached to the top of the HoverSeat with tie downs. However, for any type of seating solution, it is important to properly secure it to the HoverSeat surface to avoid sliding or flipping backward. Failure to properly secure seating to the HoverSeat frame can result in injury or death. The operator must ensure that the front legs of the beach chair are tightly secured to the HoverSeat frame using at least the provided Velcro tie downs. It is highly recommended to use additional optional tie downs if necessary to ensure secure and rigid attachment of the beach chair to the HoverSeat frame. It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure secure attachment of the seating platform to the HoverSeat frame. When attaching a cooler or any type of box, it is important to use optional tie downs to securely wrap under the HoverSeat frame. Any type of seating on top of the HoverSeat, either beach chair, cooler or box, should be absolutely unmovable from side to side or front to back. In addition, nothing should touch the wheels during HoverSeat operation.

Q. Why did my hoverboard start vibrating violently when I put my feet on the footpads to start riding?
A. Hoverboards are designed to sense when a person is standing on top of it. There are two pressure sensors located on each footpad, closer to the wheels. All four sensors need to be pressed down before the hoverboard can start moving. If any of these four sensors are not engaged, most hoverboards will start shaking and vibrating, and may even rotate over the center. When using the HoverSeat with a hoverboard, it is important to place both feet on the footpads in such way that the weight of your feet will press on the sensors under the footpads. For most adults, the weight of their feet simply placed on top of hoverboards should be enough to engage the sensors. There is no need to press down hard. However, some hoverboards with less sensitive sensors might require more effort in pressing down in order to engage the sensors. Also, younger kids and smaller adults might not have enough weight in their feet to press down on the sensors. In cases like that, we recommend optional ankle weights that are used for exercise and sold in major retail stores in the sports section. Placed over the ankles, these weights might help to press down on the sensors. However, it must be noted that the HoverSeat might not be for everyone, and younger kids might not be able to operate it properly. For that purpose, we are developing a hands-only operation attachment.

Q. What is the best chair and how to properly attach it to HoverSeat?

A. HoverSeat designed to work with regular type of beach chairs. Lower beach chairs put you closer to ground, reducing center of gravity and making it even more harder to fall from HoverSeat while riding. Therefore regular sand beach chair will work just fine with HoverSeat. You can also install higher beach chair or lawn chair. Width between wheels of HoverSeat was designed to fit Tommy Bahamas type beach chair sold in Costco and most other retail stores. To properly attach beach chair to frame, use 2 Velcro straps to wrap around front legs of chair and front of frame. Pull on strap when tightening it. Push straps as far apart as possible. You can also use additional straps to secure rear leg of beach chair. However if you will secure front legs only, then you should be able to fold chair directly on a frame, without needs to remove rear straps every time to fold it down. To prevent rear legs from sliding on top of the frame, you can put 2 metal garden hose clamps around rear legs of chair, such way that clamps bolts are touching inside surface of frame. This way, clamps will stop rear legs from swinging from side to side when making sudden turns at higher speed.

Q. How can I calibrate the hoverboard so that the footpads are turned toward the HoverSeat?
A. Most hoverboards allow calibration that is designed to keep the footpads horizontal for standing. This feature can also be used to have the footpads turned toward the hoverboard at an angle, which makes it much easier to operate the HoverSeat. To re-calibrate your hoverboard, you will need to press the power button and hold it down for a few seconds until the LED lights blink or you hear a beep. Turn it off and back on, and now when you sit on the HoverSeat and put your feet on the hoverboard, you will feel that the footpads are operational at an angle instead of being horizontal. It is very important not to touch the footpads while re-calibrating the hoverboard, because it may cause damage to the gyroscopic sensor in some hoverboards. If that happens, the LED lights on the damaged side will stay on after turning the hoverboard on. It is easy to replace the gyroscopic sensor, and they are available on eBay and Amazon. There are plenty of YouTube videos showing how to replace hoverboard sensors.

Q. What accessories are available for the HoverSeat?
A. Many regular bicycle accessories can be adapted for HoverSeat use. For example, LED bicycle lights in silicone or rubber housing can be easily wrapped around the HoverSeat frame or beach chair tubing. An electric bike horn can be installed directly on a chair, and quick-release bicycle bottle holders can be attached to both the frame and the beach chair mounted on the HoverSeat. Additional accessories such as an iPad gooseneck stand can be secured to the clamp to provide GPS location or entertainment during your ride. Sun umbrellas can be mounted on top of the beach chair to provide shade during hot days. Possibilities to accessorize the HoverSeat are endless.

Q. Where can I get replacement tube for my flat tire?
A. If your tire becomes flat, you will need to replace inner tube. What you need is 260x85 tube that is sold at Ebay and Amazon for about $7-$8.

Q. What air pressure should I put into hoverboard and HoverSeat tires?
A. You can pump tires up to recommended pressure that is printed on a tire sides. When tire is hard, 10" hoverboard uses less energy to pull HoverSeat behind it. However, when hoverboard and HoverSeat tires are softer, that will provide more cushioned, comfortable ride. If you feel that 10" hoverboard is too jumpy on obstacles and provide bumpy ride, then release a little bit of pressure in its tires, and you immediately will feel the difference. Do not make tires to soft, because it will run down battery quicker and air stem can move from its position during ride.

Q. Why my hoverboard shakes violently when I put my feet on it?
A. There are 4 pressure sensors under 4 outer corners of footpads on top of hoverboard. All 4 pressure sensors need to be engaged to tell hoverboard that someone is standing on hoverboard before it can ride forward. Therefore each foot should lay flat against each foot pad in order to engage pressure sensors. Weight of each foot should be enough to have sensors pressed down. However, if weight of foot is not enough, then way around it is to install tubes that come with our new handles manual attachment. These tubes tightened to edges of footpads with tie downs in order to keep pressure sensors always engaged. Then hoverboard can be used with or without handles.

Q. Can HoverSeat be used with a Segway Mini Pro scooter?
A. Please see below video and pictures showing HoverSeat modified for use with Segway Mini Pro. It is up to customer to do these easy modifications as a DIY project.

You will need to cut pull tube shorter, to be in level with a frame front. Replace bolt securing pull tube to frame with an eye-bolt, so that carabiners can be attached to it. Then attach 4" largeball bearing caster wheel to the bottom of pull tube, with 2 U-bolts. You will also need jubmbo carabiner to slide over Segway as shown in this video below:

Q. How can I improve HoverSeat to make it even better?
A. Please see below video showing some additional modifications for hoverboard that can significantly improve HoverSeat set up with hoverboard.

By replacing internal hoverboard battery with internal bicycle battery, not only you will eliminate even remote risk of a fire, but also you will make hoverboard itself much lighter, and will increase driving range over 3 times! It is also much easier to simply detach battery from HoverSeat for charging, then to carry heavy hoverboard all way to power outlet.

Additional suggested mod to make experience of riding hoverboard with HoverSeat even more easier, is to cover photoelectric pressure sensors on gyroscopic boards with scotch or duct tape, so that pressure sensors are always on. If you are not going to ride hoverboard standing anymore, then there is no need for pressure sensors. Once pressure sensors are always engaged, that means there is no more need to keep pressing with foot on a surface of foot pads when riding HoverSeat. It will eliminate hoverboard vibration, risk of sudden lose of control, and will makes whole experience much better. With pressure sensors always "on", it just enough to press anywhere on hoverboard surface to propel hoverboard forward. However, it is important do angle calibration before closing sensors, because calibrating hoverboard with pressure sensors engaged can damage gyros.

Q. How can I make HoverSeat to work with other hoverboards without round middle?

A. Clamp provided with HoverSeat designed to fit only over hoverboards with round middle.While we do not offer out-of-box solution for other types of hoverboards, such as 8" wheel for example, below are some suggested DIY clamps that might work with other type of hoverboards. Pictures provided for reference only. We do not make these clamps and do not provide additional suggestions.

DIY clamps for hoverboards with non-round middle part

Q. What to do if I am unable to re-calibrate my hoverboard foot pads to operate under angle?

A. Here is suggested work around using cheap yoga foam blocks that are sold in many retail stores. Just cut block diagonally, to make 2 wedges. Drill or cut 2 holes at edges, and run tie downs through holes. Make knots at ends of tie downs and use washers, so that knots will not slip out of holes in a foam. Attach wedges to foot pads of hoverboard with tie downs, such way that foot pads sensors remained engaged. This way you can easily operate hoverboard with wedges translation pressure down to foot pads.

Work around for hoverboards with flat foot pads

Another easy option is to use 2 pcs of Industrial Rubber Wedges sold on Amazon at $14/pc and simply secure both wedges on top of foot pads with 2 adjustable tie downs. That will allow operation of hoverboard with footpads facing HoverSeat rider.
