    I am in the process of ordering my new chair... I am going with a Tilite ZRA and it is my first rigid chair. I have a questions about the single swivel anit-tip. Is it adjustable? Will I be able to go up pop up on curbs etc?

    Hi Elizabeth - This is Sandra. To answer your question, yes the single swivel anti-tip is adjustable. You can adjust it where it is attached to the camber tube. You can change the angle by using a 7/16" open-end wrench and a 5/16" hex or allen wrench. You can also adjust it by moving the spacers above or below the 5th wheel itself by using a 3/4" wrench to take off the nut. Hope this helps. Have a great weekend.

    It is a great option--you can dance in chair with it! But if you get pushed a lot, it is harder for the helper to avoid walking into it.

    The last one I had on a sportschair could be adjusted up or down just a bit. No, you won't be able to jump curbs with it because you have to pop a wheelie to be able to jump a curb. I could barley get it over any lip entering a tennis court. If you can jump a curb, you don't need anti-tips imo. I found anti tips dangerous because of not being able to do wheelies or jump a curb. Wheelies, for me, are a necessity when going down a steep incline.

    Is there a reason you are going with a ZRA? Is it because of the adjustability? For myself, I didn't like the ZRA due to it's larger sized tubing and open frame. I found it awkward grabbing the rail to transfer. I found the TR or TRA a better option for me because of the smaller diameter tubing. Some love them others not so much.

    Congrats on your first rigid chair. I'm sure you'll find a vast difference. I always add an 1" to the frame before the bend to help with grabbing the rail when transferring. Solid seat pans are a plus also.

    Do you have a picture of a TR (or ZR) with a fixed back and fixed side guards? Preferably so I can see how the fixed sideguards are attached to the seat posts. I looked on the site and at the TR brochure and didn't see any pictures of that configuration.
