Restraining fold-up seats

How do I restrain fold-up seats in a small bus or van?

It is not advisable to use homemade solutions to restrain fold-up seats or equipment in vehicles. While these solutions may be sufficiently secure in normal circumstances, there is a high chance that they will not remain secure in crash conditions. It is better to engage a company specialising in vehicle modifications to install a restraint system appropriate to your needs.
