    Van/car conversion know how

    Has anyone had a conversion of EZ lock &/or Sure Grip hand controls done. Do u find a local mechanic or does dealer send a installer?

            ^^^ A steel bracket that attaches to the bottom of the chair, with a bolt to lock into it. On some powerchairs it's just a steel plate that bolts on the floor of the battery box that the bolt is fixed to.

                You need to pick out your chair to find the bracket that will fit it. Power or Manual

                  Dam thnxs dudes. They got things fine tuned. Any estimate total in mind for everything.. Suicide knob, hand controls, EZ lock. Then find an installer. Local mechanic or do they send installers for either of these. Thnxs a load..

                    Those EZ lock brackets that bolt to the chair are different between manufacturers/models. Before you buy any bracket be certain it will fit your chair. But the EZ Lock part that bolts to the van floor are all the same.

                        My EZ Lock came installed on my van but my PA helped me install my first chair bracket. Most recently Access Mobility charge me $640 for the bracket and installation on my Permobl C500. I have no idea what they charge to install the locking mechanism. The whole system is simple anyone with mechanical aptitude and common sense could do the install.

                        I suspect EZ Lock requires that an approved mechanic install the system, else voiding the warranty and any responsibility for failure. No doubt where

                            Well isn't it part of the package of the EZ Lock system or u have to obtain it separately?? Doesn't seem right them not supplying both// all parts..

                              brackets aren't cheap....my new chairs bracket is 650.00......"

                              Theyre part of the order included with the EZ Lock system on the website..
                              Why/how does it sound like you obtained it separately?? Or is that how much they are part of the order??
