    Quickie Xtender question

    I am in the market for a quickie xtender but I have a question:
    Once the xtender is installed are the wheels still quick release? I know the wheels are heavy but I am hoping that, with assistance, I can still take the wheels off to stow a rigid frame chair. Is this possible?

    Thanks,
    Erik

    Yes, the wheels do pop off. There is a ring on the hub, which gets lifted while you must simultaneously pull outward on the wheel itself. The wheels are heavy and this cannot be done by one of us.

    Getting it back in is a bit tricky as well, but very doable.

    I would be hesitant to utilize this system if one is going to be doing this every day or even multiple times per week. If there are other systems which are lighter and easier to handle.

    I don't have any immediate plans to get xtenders but I have wondered when I look at them in photos, do they increase the width of the chair at the hub? It would be a consideration for doorways,etc.

    Ultimately thinking could be helpful in pushing up the ramp in a mini van.

    They will definitely help you get up the ramp in a minivan, though you may have to lean forward to keep from popping over backwards.

    As far as increasing the width, I wouldn't consider that a major problem if you have anything that even closely approximates a normal width doorway.
