Thread: EZ Lock pins

    EZ Lock pins

    I recently got a van with an EZ Lock already installed, but apparently buying the pin and chair plate will cost over $500 - before installation!

    That would be through the local mobility dealer - is there any other way to get them?

    I have an almost new pin and plate if you are interested. I was going to list on E-bay with a $100 reserve. Let me know if you would like it. Don't have the pictures to post yet. There are a few different types- do you know the shape of the one you need? Phil

    Hi Phil, thanks! I need a BKT-TDX-SP22 plate or something compatible.

    Is your chair a TDX-5, I may have a plate available.

    Here's a link to the EZ-LOCK Part List. Nothing about compatibility.

    Find a welder and make your own. I fabricated my newest one and got (1) rave reviews from the wheelchair service guy. (2) A lot more ground clearance.

    Its not rocket science.

    Why can't you just put a pin through the existing bottom? I've seen manual wheelchairs with an EZ lock and the pin is mounted with no plate. Just drill a hole and put in the pin. Let's face it, if you think that pin is really going to protect you in an accident we're dreaming. Bob

    The pin is nothing more than a bolt isn't it?

    Mingo,
    Did you have them "make" just the "pin" or did they make a wheelchair bracket using the existing "pin" (bolt actually). Did the welder flinch when you told what it was for? Just curious. Thanks for insights. Am carefully studying ground clearance issue on upcoming chair myself!
    Any insights appreciated!
