    I was told that they could mount a tube under the seat that you could attach removable side guards to. The only regular option is fixed side guards.

    That chair rocks! Would you mind sharing what the weight is?

    It depends on configuration & accessories. Lowest possible weight: 20.3lbs.

    Mounting a bracket would be possible, but would have to be done by a dealer right now, we don't offer removable side-guards right now.

    We have removable armrests, so the interface is there which would make it pretty straightforward.

    What's the situation where removable side-guards are necessary?

    I haven't been able to yet master transfers without using a board.

    Jeff - right now I load a cantilevered frame chair into my Honda Element by putting it behind the driver's seat. We tried, and failed, to fit the Icon in with the permanent side guards. It would still be a tight fit, but do-able without them.

    I use a board for most transfers (level: C6). Depending on transfer technique, sideguards may not get in the way if you can rotate/pivot yourself out the front of the seat.

I just bought a Tilite ZR Series 2 with a 3" dump. 20 Front, & 17 Back, also I am going with a 10 " ADI Aluminum Back. I sit on a Jay Active Cushion. Chair is 17'wide x 16". I think 3" of dump is a great measurement for T-3 Para, You still are sitting in Your chair, and it is easier to transfer. I have a Tilite Aero Z and tried 4" of dump, and I found that I was having to pull Myself out of a hole to transfer, and when I was wheeling, I also found that I had to lean way over frontward to get a good push, and was always Lifting to push Myself to the back of the chair. Bottom line 3" Dump is great for a T-3 Para complete , I have no trunk muscle , but good balance. Thanks Alan
    Yeah, well the Icon allows users to adjust the dump with a turn of a wrench.

    Who asked your set-up and what the hell does this have to do with a thread about an Icon?
