Title: Quick release mechanism for vehicle seating

Abstract: A quick release mechanism for a conveyance seat comprising: a base plate rigidly attachable to a floor portion of a conveyance connected to a riser member by way of a cammed locking means. Wherein, the cammed locking means has a "T" lock that may be positioned so as to secure the riser member, and a locking cam which further secures the riser member by reducing the amount of sideways movement between the riser member and the base plate, and a compression cam which when rotated in a locked position pulls the "T" lock in an upward direction, and a spring which applies a force in a downward direction when the compression cams are in a lock position. The seat mechanism is further secured by a plurality of hub-like projections which may be received by a plurality of detents included in the base plate.
