    Tube clamps to fit wheelchair tubing - modular detachable



    Going on a Tilite TR Titanium - tube is OD(outside diameter 1") : as compared to aluminum quickie OD (1 1/8") and Quickie aluminum All court OD(1 1/4").

    Before I re-invent the wheel, figured I would see if anyone had found a good source or solution or any ideas welcome at this point.

    I'm looking for aluminum clamps to fit to my chair tubing that would allow me to connect a temporary tubular frame. Thinking the anchor points could be left on the chair and then the frame snapped into place when I want to use it.

    Figured this would be good for many things, table/desk that doesn't rest on your legs, so they could spasm and you wouldn't worry about the weight on your legs as the frame would take the weight.

    My project is to fashion a frame that would accept a child car seat.

    Similar to this frame but imagine it being fixed to my front tubes above the casters, and hence no need for the stroller




    This seems like an excellent start, but I don't have the luxury of being able to slide the clamp onto the tube, it has to be hinged, or have two bolts. seems like a great start though.

    Similar to this.. but I need the clamping to run parallel and not perpendicular

    This mechanism would be awesome.. if it was made into the double clamp above.

    I don't know about you, but I have no problems with setting my newborn's car seat right across the top of my legs. It actually rides there surprisingly stable. And if I needed to improve that I know I'd be able to strap it.

    Not trying to take away from what you're trying to accomplish though. I'll try and give this some thought this weekend.

    Cut the Tilite luggage carrier clamp longitudinally in half so that it can be placed anywhere.

    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    hoping for a more modular solution, plus the tilite stuff isn't cheap.

    Looks like a winner to me. I might order one after checking diameters for my purpose. I wonder if they are mix and match. That is could you combine 1 inch on one end and say 7/8 inch on the other end?

    May be this can help you ? 1" for the biggest hole, and standard handlebar diameter for the other. Nicely done and very low price on eBay…
