  1. #11
    Rio Mobility sells various sizes, but they're not cheap.

    I know for a fact that the Rotocon clamps from 1/2 to 5/8 to 3/4 to 7/8 to 1 inch will all fit together. Their measurements are for outside diameters of the attached tubing or rods. You will need a 5/16" hex key to loosen or tighten the clamps.

    The Rotocon www.rotocon.com clamps in the large series (1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8 and 1 inch sizes) will all fit with each other. You will need a 5/16" Allen or hex wrench to tighten and loosen. Good luck.

    I went with Marine stainless steel pipe fittings. 1" for the Tilite tubing and 7/8" for the aluminum tubing.

    with nothing attached I have four fittings on the chair, one pair are clamps and the front ball joint is screwed to my chair frame.


    My attachment





    marine chair attachment lets it rotate to 12 lockable positions.





    allows the base to stay horizontal in the two positions I require.


    up high for smaller footprint and maneuverability, but no visibility.



    down low, for visibility..







    Facing forward for the view....

    Nice work! You can be proud.
    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.

    Really nice!
    Partner of an incredible stroke survivor. Limitations: hemiparesis and neglect (functional paralysis and complete lack of awareness on one side). Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).
