If I remember, with the seat secured in the farthest position-(All the way back) there is no trouble, but if you are using it in the full forward position, it will trigger the sensor.

All I can tell you is remember--the sensor activates with the plate and seat together......a circuit is made. With the use of zip ties, wire,etc. you can find a miracle.
I do not advocate anyone to clip or reroute their safety devises. Most of all these circuits are pressure plated, or driven by a pin.........so go from there.

Just flip up the seat, find the two wires leading to the seat, cut and splice them together and be done with it.

I'll be reading about you or someone like you in the paper!
If I'm double lucky they'll post the story here on LS!

I love gloating over those stories just LOOKING for the one little piece of the story that gives it away, it was no accident.
Because I hunt for that, before I share my condolences I want to be one hundred percent certain it could not have been prevented.

And the best part...
The insurance won't cover!
Perhaps not even accidental death, since it wasn't an accident!

Remember, I'm the jerk writing letters to the insurance companies deriding them because they cover this garbage,
I am always telling them they should not cover cases where someone disabled the very safety device installed to
prevent the very event they're being asked to cover!

How ignorant can you be, I tell them, these folks disabled the safety device that could have prevented their own death and
you want to cover that under their policy, are you kidding me, I'm taking my business elsewhere and telling all my friends, too!

Why, because that kind of crap makes my premiums go up and I'm tired of covering someone else's butt,
especially when it's their own dang fault.

Yeah it is a pain for skinny butt old man like me. I hold on to the side of mower with my free hand to help keep my butt on the switch. All I know is that if I come off that mower I want it too shut down.
