General Details

Caution

Prior to any modifications to a vehicle, contact the Department of Infrastructure, Energy and Resources for information regarding vehicle regulations and modifications.

The product must be replaced immediately after it has been worn during a collision.

Extra product information

The Easilok is a fixed base restraint that can be fitted to one position within a vehicle or can be fitted with removable lockable seat fixtures to allow the seat to be moved or taken out of the vehicle completely. The wheelchair is reversed into the front of the seat with the seat folded up. The restraint system for the wheelchair is fitted at two points at the rear of the wheelchair using Karabiner clips to the fixed base. The occupant restraint system encompasses both the wheelchair and the occupant with a lap sash belt as in a car seat. The seat is locked to tracking on the floor of the vehicle. The restraint for a user sitting in the seat is the same lap sash system as that used by a wheelchair user. The tracking needs to be cleaned on a regular basis (vacuumed, or brushed to remove any dirt) to ensure the restraint can lock into the tracking correctly. A quick release system for the wheelchair is located at the rear of the seat. A foot pedal and lift up handle are released simultaneously.

Method of Use

The Karabiner straps located at the base of the seat are connected to the base frame of the wheelchair.
The wheelchair is then rolled back toward the seat until it meets the T-Bar, the karabiner straps will retract as the wheelchair is rolled back.
Once positioned, press the pedal located at the rear of the seat to lock the karabiner straps in place.
Bring the sash across the occupants chest and lock into belt clip, then bring the lap belt across the occupants waist area and clip onto the belt area. Note: The sash and lap belt can be used independently.
