    We found that Velcro (the stick-on type) and/or cable ties can successfully hold a rigid backrest to the backrest canes. (A much lighter solution than the standard hardware). Might not work in every situation, but works for us, and is a cheap and easy solution.

    Could you put a picture of the chair in the equipment section? The folks there will probably be able to come up with a solution.

    Some people have also successfully used pipe.. somethings. Sorry just forgot exactly what they're called, but to secure pipe and from a hardware store. They wrap around a pipe and then would screw/bolt on and so can be attached to the backrest. I've seen posts here where people used them inplace of regular hardware to save weight.

    "clamps" is the word that you're trying to remember! We used pipe clamps after Jeff said that just using Velcro wasn't a good idea (due to forces on the Icon back canes), but have since changed backrest and found that Velcro plus cable ties work better.
