Are any of you using manual wheelchair like the Tilite ZRA Sport Wheelchair with an EZ Lock? If so what type of bracket are you using to attach to your chair?

The hubby has a TiLite with an ez lock bracket on it.  He actually designed the bracket himself and got a machinist to built it for him - totally cool & he built it so it's super light weight on his chair too.  I'll talk to him about it and have him dig up the auto cad files and whatnot.

Okay, so here are the pics:

Sorry, they are so huge ...

 

Hubby has a TiLite TR which has the lower set of bars on the frame.  To which he attached an aluminum bracket, which then bolts into the ezlock.  Unfortunately, with a ZRA there's really nothing to attached an ezlock bracket to, unless you go from the footrest up to the axle.

 

The bracket he designed is great because it's so much lighter than the standard ezlock - which wouldn't be compatible with any TiLite, really.

 

Anyway, hope these pics help somewhat!  Feel free to ask us any more questions :)

I have found that the ez lock system is not compatible with the tilite aero z. Tilite does have compatible chairs, I'm now running into the problem of finding a chair that is both functional for me during the day but safe to drive from any ideas?

Which of the chairs are compatible?
