    Need a foot plate for a Quickie GPV

    I have a really really old Quickie GPV that I'm messing with right now (smart drive fits on it unlike my real chair). At some point I removed the foot plate, was probably going to adjust it but never put it back on and now its lost. I am addicted to my smart drive but rolling around without a footplate is uncomfortable if not dangerous. Any body out there have an old GPV they dont care about? Wanna give or sell me the foot plate?

    It'll be about 3 months before I see my new Mike Box chair and my smart drive hitch doesnt fit on my ancient Eagle Hurricane. The smart drive is so fun I can't wait 3 months even though there is plenty wrong with this GPV (no foot plate, seating doesn't fit etc).
    Anybody?

        I'm sitting on a GPV. It looks correct. You may have to saw off one side of the footplate to fit if it's a little too wide though.
        I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

            Originally it was the tubular rigid style. No left side/right side. Don't care about color. Not sure if the one listed on ebay will work as my chair is only 14x14 and I dont have cutting tools. Really kicking myself for taking the original off in the first place.

              Not that hard to cut. Local car mechanic, bike shop, neighbor with a hack saw.

                I have a small footplate you can have for free. It measures 6" wide and 6.5" deep.

                Otherwise you can buy a new one here:

                  Do you have any of the hardware that goes with it? If you do, I'd buy it off of you. I see the page where one can order parts but I am intimidated by all the pieces. The original was a one piece tubular with no platform. Much more idiot proof.

                    I don't have the hardware, but it can all be found at a hardware store for under $5. Go to ACE or TrueValue-type store (NOT big box like Home Depot) and they will help you. They are very helpful. You can say, "I need to attach this to here, but I don't have any idea what I need." They will figure it out with you. All you need is 2 bolts and 2 stop-nuts.

                    If you want the plate, sent your address to me in a PM


                    BUT: you need to make sure you have the correct mounting holes. If you are not sure, post a few pics of your current situation here and we can help.

                      My old one was like this:https://www.quickie-wheelchairs.com/...d-footrest-gpv

                      So I don't have the limbs that the plate would attach to. I'm probably gonna hafta order a new one from Quickie.

                        The limbs are on ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Quickie-Rid...kAAOSwnTdaQsnx

                        This Ebay type footrest is adjustable once installed so that you can tilt the angle to suit. Think upgrade.

                          If you have a square front end, then the eBay link is what you want. It comes with the unique hardware and the rest you can get at a hardware store as I previously mentioned.

                          If you have a tapered or V front end, the eBay item will NOT work on your chair.

                            This ad appears to be the chair from the same seller that has/had the footrest the ebay is selling. It appears to be a tapered front end to me. However now that you brought it up, the angle is important, I think the OPs chair and the donor chair need to match.
