    Bruno truck lift

    I have a Bruno lift for my wheelchair in the back of my truck. I called about the attachment on my wheelchair consisting of 8" of seatbelt strap and a male end of the seatbelt. They quoted me $250 big ones. Does anybody maybe have a set they would like to sell? I would like an extra set for my other chair

    Is this just like a regular seat belt that is removable? Sorry I don't know the bruno system. If it is, we have one that's never been used.

    Thanks for your reply Martha. Sorry it took so long to get back. I have been looking at the situation and I am going to make new belts for everything that way its all the same.

    Hello Wheelinarcher,

    Yesterday I took my driving exam for the state and passed. I am a Pennsylvanian also and am now gathering information to determine the best modification for myself. I have seen your setup on your webpage and it looks good, but could you tell me of any problems, or concerns that I should consider before making my decision on what mod's to go with. Any help would be appreciated.

    I also have this system and am going to run into trouble soon as I only have one set of conectors(seatbelt). I was thinking of removing the male ends from my chair and clicking them into the female ends and leave them there. Then attach a snap like you find on a packsack to the belt that is still on the male end. When the snap is apart take the other end and attach it to your chair. I bought a couple of packsacks for $5 a piece and this is in Canada; you should get them even cheaper there. I haven't looked around to just purchasing the snaps themselves but you could probably find them and if not just buy a cheap packsack and this way you get the material to use for the attachment process at the same time.

    Sorry, I wasn't paying attention to the date of the post. I would like to tell you my only concern with my set-up though. It is that when the outside elements are bad (rain or snow) there is more time spent in them then that if I had a van because of opening up the modifications of the truck. Other than that I've had no other concerns. I'm able to do the off-roading I used to before my accident.

    Please disreguard my last post and I'll pay more attention next time.

    Sorry guys. I dont pay much attention. Ok, first- I took care of having two chairs to hooh up by taking 1" webbing (walmart) and making a loop at a balance point on my chair. I heated a screw driver and made a hole. I wrapped the webing and put a screw thropugh the holes. It is alot easier to look at the pic.

    second- weather is a bad factor period. yes you get wet getting in/out van, car or truck.

    third- problems with mine were all due to untrained people that did not know their product. #1 the TAS does have a recline option hidden on the RIGHT side. #2 When the seat swivels out there are two bolts to adjust the stop position. Make sure the bake of the seat has at least 1/2" between back guid rails and truck. #3 My chair lift is the Outridder #PUL1100. Bruno has a recall on these for a chain tightener assembly. Make sure you have it.

    I am very happy with it. Even with the few problems I have had it has been a good setup. I love still having a truck with four wheel drive. You can use the outridder for a deer hook to skin and quarter!!!!(more on that later)

    If you jog in a jogging suit, lounge in lounging
    pajamas, and smoke in a
    smoking jacket, WHY would anyone want to wear a
    windbreaker?

    I use the original bolts on the lift to hook to.

    Thanks Wheelinarcher,

    thank you for the input on your truck and am wondering if there is a chance I could see it. Like I told you I am from PA also, a little northwest of you, but could probabely arrange for a ride to Lewistown sometime. Let me know if we could meet cause I am getting anxious and want to find the best option for me, but I don't want to get something and then regret it Thanks.
