    I don't see any attachments.

    My sideguards are custom aftermarket. I had TiLite drill the location holes.

    Yeah, I looked at yours. I know they are custom, but I don't like how there is a space between the frame and guard where the cushion can get wet and also how they stick out behind the posts. Was there reasoning behind those two decisions or were you just being stylish (which I am not apparently)

    Yes, the gap between the bottom of the sideguard and the frame was deliberate and yes, it was an aesthetic choice -- I like the look of the exposed polished frame. The fin-like shape of these sideguards was borrowed from a design that (now) TiLite designer Doug Garven had used in previous chairs for other manufacturers.

    Interesting, the gap notwithstanding, I've never observed the side of the cushion getting wet in either the rain or in the snow.

The only thing holding the chair together is the rigid back. As far as ti lite I would say my frame is good cause it hasnt cracked, other than that not sure what to say. Oh & I cant take the wheels off to get at the brakes to adjust em either. Trying to deal with anyone has been a complete joke cause I have medicaid & medicare so no one seems to give two shits that I have to deal with a falling apart chair. My chair is 2 1/2 years old

    Interesting Tilite hasn't responded to this Allen but are sure quick to respond to those thinking about ordering. I'm ordering another Tilite, not particualrly because I want to but because there's no other that are any better that my workers comp will pay for.

    When they first started they were awesome, great customer service and we could call and get decent advice. Now all they say is "Call your dme guy". Marty Ball what happened to such a great company. I guess you just got too big like many of the others.

    Yes. You will have some adjustability. On the rigid chairs the average is 2" upward and 1" downward depending on your configuration.
