    I believe he's referring to a single anti tipper. I'm curious to see the answer as well, because I may be getting a backup chair from someone that doesn't have anti tippers.

    spastic, are you looking for one tat clamps right to the camber bar? I'm assuming since you have a gt. I would need the same thing I think.

    The link below lists a few, but can't find list of wheelchairs they fit.

    Finding a single rear caster wheeled anti-tipper as an add-on seems to be hard, may be time to make one.

    Edmond's is closed. Too bad really, they carried a lot of important wheelchair supplys at good prices.

    Far better it is to try mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure. Than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much or suffer much, because they live in the grey twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.

    TiLite makes one, but I have no idea if it will fit a Quickie.
