A retractable four point wheelchair restraint consisting of four webbing retractors that adjust to suit wheelchair anchorage points. The restraint secures the wheelchair to a vehicle. It attaches to the wheelchair frame via a purpose designed Karabiner clip allowing fast release. The system is adjustable to accommodate a variety of wheelchair types.

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 webbing should be checked regularly for signs of wear or fraying. Nicks greater than 1mm necessitate replacement.

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

No restraint system is considered safe to use with the occupant of a scooter travelling while sitting in the scooter. The occupant must transfer to a normal vehicle seat for the journey.

Extra product information

The restraint system has four points of attachment to the wheelchair. It is compatible with both Unwin rail floor fixings and the Solo system.

When not in use, the webbing retracts into a hard cover case which keeps it clean and prevents damage. 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.

Method of Use

The following briefly describes how the restraint is to be fitted to the vehicle:
Wheel the wheelchair over the tracking keeping the brakes off.
Secure the two front restraints around the wheelchair and into the tracking.
Pull the wheelchair backward and put the brakes on.
Attach rear straps to the wheelchair and the tracking.
Using the buckle to adjust tension, ensure the wheelchair is securely held in place.

Reverse procedure to remove wheelchair.
