    Bolt on wheels to quick release wheels

    I have a wheelchair that i use occasionally that has the bolt on wheels. This is not my main chair but one I use outdoors and on certain trips. I have been trying to find out if i can add quick release wheels to this chair? If so how?

    Here is the axle mounting setup as used by Quickie for folders, others are similiar. If you can figure out how to mount part #1 on your chair, then yes you could go to quick release. Parts are probably available for next to nothing or free here except getting the axle length correct is always a little harder. The axle plates are about 3"X5" and must be mounted parallel to each other or such as to provide wheel camber.

    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.

    Try taking the wheel mounting bolt out. See what diameter it is. Probably 1/2 or 7/16 inch. If its 1/2 inch try sticking a quick release pin in and see if it works. Might have to hunt for the right length.
