The Boot Slider is designed to assist a person to slide a manual folding wheelchair into the boot of a car. It consists of a padded Boot Blanket, a nylon slider with a platform and a ground protector. The folded chair is placed inside the nylon slider. Using the two attached handles it is raised and then slid into the boot. The rim of the boot helps supports its weight.

General Details

Method of Use

Place the Boot Blanket into the boot. Undo one of the hook & loop securing straps to open the front cover. Wheel the folded wheelchair into position and do up the securing strap. Lean the Slider against the car boot and then use the two front cover handles to lift the Slider up. The Slider can be rested against the thighs, so the person can walk forward to let the wheelchair slide into the boot.

Removing the wheelchair from the boot. There are two small loops that are used to lift the wheelchair onto the lip of the boot. Then hold the front cover handles to slide the Slider and wheelchair down to the ground.

Extra product information

It is designed for able bodied people who are carers of individuals that use a wheelchair.

This product is made up of nylon, webbing, hook and loop tape, slip resistant miracle grip and plastic sheeting:

There are three pieces of equipment that make this work:

1) A special Boot Blanket that has a padded section to protect the rear of the car. A slip resistant section on this prevents the Slider from slipping when the wheelchair is being lifted into the boot. There is also a thinner section to go inside the boot to give a slippery surface for the wheelchair to slide on when putting it into or taking it out of the car.

2) A Slider. This has a nylon cover with a platform to wheel the folded wheelchair onto, and a front cover to hold the wheelchair in position.

3) A Ground Protector. This is placed on the ground to protect the platform material on the Slider, from getting wet, dirty or deteriorating on rough tarmac or other road surfaces. This has a webbing strap attaching it to the Boot Blanket, so it is not left behind when driving off.

Washing Instructions: the Slider and attachments can be machine washed up to 80C. Do not tumble dry.
