    What is the best way to put your rigid chairs into the car

    Hi guys.

    How do you put your rigid chairs into the car?
    I will put my rigid chair like the pic and the wheels in the back, i think it`s the best way, any suggestions.

    I do it like that when my husband is not with me. When he is, I put my chair in the back seat like that by reclining my seat so that I can do that.

    I prefer my chair in the backseat. Frame behind passenger seat and wheels behind drivers seat.

    I like the backseat too. I don't like the idea of a loose wheelchair up front in the event of an accident. Seat belt it, maybe, but less effort to just toss it over the shoulder for me. When I do use the front seat (because of car seats or a sports chair in the back) I put the wheels in front of the frame, between the frame and the glove box. They fit there, down on the floor board, pretty well in my car (Honda Accord).

    Mine does not move in the front seat...my husband is so skinny that he moves the seat forward...that is enough so that my chair is wedged between the seat back and the dashboard...sometimes I have issues prying it out of there.

    Shouldn't be... Looks like you have pretty good upper body stregth so you should be able to put a ZR in the back. Especially with the wheels removed. If you're the only one in the front seat though, I think you won't have A problem putting your frame and wheels up front if the back folds down. Not sure though because I have an old quickie 2 and am going to be getting a GTX soon.

    I do it like that as well. If I have someone w/ me, and they are sitting in the front, they just throw my chair in the back for me. (Taurus station wagon, it fits in the back w. the wheels on.)
