Kiravans VW T5/T6 Double Passenger Seat Swivel
The T5/T6 double swivel is one of our finest products. It gives us a warm glow hearing our customers stories about how it has transformed their van living spaces - without losing all the benefits of the bench seat up front.
The swivel mechanism on a Kiravans swivel is very different to other swivels. It uses a cunning slide and swivel approach so you will need to open the side door to allow the full range of movement. The seat is held securely in position while driving by 4 x specially engineered locking bolts.
Our double seat swivel is fully tested and has passed all the requirements of TÜV Deutschland. This involved 'in-vehicle' pull testing and a SLED test in Germany. The TÜV certificate can be downloaded below.
In the UK it has also passed seat belt anchorage safety tests conducted by STATUS (The Specialist Testing Facility at Manchester Met Uni) using a pull test on a specialist test rig to EC Directive 76/115/EEC as amended by 2005/41/EEC.
Our double swivel is design protected (UK & EU Registered Design No. 002115790-0001).

Floor Plate & Carpet
What is the floor plate & carpet? The floor plate & carpet consists of a tin sheet with a perfectly cut piece of carpet to go on top. It fits inside the T5/T6 double seat box. A simple idea that makes a big difference to your under seat storage. Thanks to one of our customers for the clever idea!
What does it do? When you fit your double seat swivel (in a T5/T6) you'll notice that the swivelling mechanism is visible inside your seat base, with a nut sticking up and places that small things could get trapped. This product means no gaps, nowhere for things to get trapped, and (thanks to the carpet) fewer rattles in your van.
How to fit:
Simply install the double swivel as normal following our fitting guide & video
Place the tin sheet on top of the swivel
Fix the seat on top of the metal sheet and bolt it down (The tin sheet will now be sandwiched between the seat and swivel system
Finally, pop the carpet on top of the metal sheet inside the seat base...
Hey presto, no gaps, nowhere for things to get trapped, and no rattes!
