    Very nice!!

    VA ordered me a single swivel caster anti-tip for my AeroZ on Jan 15 (DU100069). I expect it to arrive any day now ; I plan to post pics, too. (Sadly, TiLite wants a 37-business-day lead time for this custom-made item )

    I requested it because the brackets on my standard antitips were bending when I danced/twirled around on them.

    The swivel SCI-OTR posted looks universal. It looks like it could be adjusted up or down either on the axle tube or maybe at the caster. I want one.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    TiLite says it's custom fabricated - probably because of the width between camber-tube mounts and the varying mounting hardware among chairs.

    Detailed instructions for it are in the TR Series manual. I requested the Quick Release style.
    TiLite's DU brochure is full of neat stuff!

    The height is adjusted via 4 spacers of the fork stem that can be positioned above or below the housing for the bearings.

    It is definitely a custom item that is fabricated for each individual chair

    Thanks SCI_OTR but do you have a profile picture because it seems it adds some length to the chair.

    It looks very nice, both the concept and the design. TiLite always puts out good looking products. Is there any way to move it out of the way like you can flip up the standard anti-tips?

    It does not appear to add much length to the chair from what I can see from the pics. That is actually minimal compared to some anti tips on sports chairs. Nice looking setup. I think it is much better than the old anti tip setup.

    Nice loooking but it's not a new concept by any means. We made similar anti-tips years and years ago. Glad to see it continued as Chas said the other style are dangerous. I used to cringe seeing people lay back on them.
