    I sling a bag over the back of my chair. As you can see, the bag hangs below the rigidizer bar.

On the next chair we would also like to raise it and have it at a similar angle for the same reasons. Interesting to see how much COG you have. I'm thinking of trying a 4" COG on a similar size chair -- not too backward tippy?
    The depth of the rigidizer bar can be whatever you wish. You can see from the CAD that mine is set at ~4" deep, so nothing really out of the ordinary. Note that the height of the rigidizer bar at its peak is about 1" taller than the back posts, but still several inches lower than the top of the ADI back. I configured it so that there was ample enough clearance between it and the ADI back so that I could fit my hand comfortably enough to grab the bar.

    I don't find the 4.25" COG too tippy. In fact, set at 4.0" I find the front end too heavy.

    Is there any specific name for this wheel lock mount, so that Tilite will understand what you want?
    Or you just show them the picture?

    Also the rigidized bar, how do you tell them what you want?

    The quote from TiLite referred to it as: "Custom Work - Welded Wheel Lock Clamps"

    I used this Right Angle Calculator to help me figure out the specifications. I forwarded a pic of the calculation results along with a description when I was placing my order. I had to make sure that the CAD accurately reflected what I was after and it took a phone call with one of TiLite's engineers to make sure that my specs were being translated accurately.

    The process would have been simpler if I had chasmengr's CAD skills.
