    Question Manual chair in vehicle lock downs ?

    I'm in a quickie TI and I'm getting a Ford E350. I'm wondering what people are using for a chair lockdown. I've seen the EZ lock but I don't know if the bracket will fit my chair, and quite frankly I'd rather not at all the bulk to the frame.

    I could really use some info on what others have for their manual chair.

    Thanks,

    Jay

    I am quite sure that there is no a bracket that would work with the Quickie Ti's open frame design.

    Here's the Ez-lock bracket chart for Quickie manual chairs.

    This is unfortunately true to my knowledge. You may need to use tie-down straps (Q-Straps). If you are going to be driving I wouldn't recomend doing so from your manual chair. I would reccomend getting a Braun Companion seat which can be mounted as driver seat. Works great and transfers are easy because of adjustable seat height. http://www.braunlift.com/consumer/Companion/index.htm

    Smile ti-lite & easy lock

    The van-place where we had the mods done to our Caravan had made a bracket for hubby's ti-lite. He got rid of it and uses just a tiedown that has buckle on one end and secures it with the seat-belt. That way you don't add another 15 lbs to your lite chair and don't get caught on the grass with the bracket hanging low off your chair.

    I don't use the EZ Lock in my van. I have a Quickie Ti and roll up beside my B&D seat,lock the wheels,and transfer to seat, The EZ lock adds to much weight. I've rolled the old heavy chairs for too many yrs. I bought the Quickie Ti because it's light weight and love it.

    My problem is that I am a C-5/6, so transferring into a seat is out of the question. I'd love to see some pictures of the buckle system that was mentioned.I've also heard that there is a system that grabs the front to bars and clamps them in, but I haven't actually been able to find the system anywhere. Any more thoughts?
