Thread: Wheelchair Locks for Vehicle

    Wheelchair Locks for Vehicle

    I currently have a minivan with EZ Lock system. I've never really liked it because the 'bolt' sticks down so low making ground clearance horrible. It catches on the door sill when leaving my house. Are there any other systems that don't cause this issue? Thx.

    I mounted my EZ Lock receptacle to the van floor on top of spacers (pieces of metal tubing) about 1" tall, then shortened the bolt by a like amount. It eliminated the snagging issues I was having.

    I did the same as endo, added spacers. I came across this years ago but don't know anything about them http://www.lokkup.com/Products/Lokkup.aspx

    does anyone know if the ezlock pin on my quickie p222 can be transferred to any type of new chair? I remember it being ridiculously expensive 7 years ago.

    On my manual chair, the pin is mounted on a big "H" like bracket. The "legs" of the "H" have split ends with holes. Those splits go over the side supports of the chair, and bolts go thru the holes.

    Easy to remove and put on a new chair. The length of the legs are adjustable.

    So...maybe...

    They added spacers to mine also so I could raise the peg/bolt.

    looked at ez locks website, the pin for my p222 is called bkt-qp22. I guess I can only move it to another p222. irritating.
