    Side guard clamp

    My side guard clamp always push outward and cause the side guard touch the wheel, I need to adjust it regularly. Any way to solve this problem?

    Jumped from 8 inches curb on my GTi yesterday, wondering any harm will do to my chair. Actually how strong are those clamp hold the camber tube?

    I think those clamps were designed in a kitchen for holding pots together and not in an engineering shop.

    There must be a solution out there but after 20+ years I haven't found one.

      My friend put the Gorilla Glue epoxy on his clamps for his basketball chair...they have stayed put since then. May want to try that.

            side guard clamps

            What chair do you have? On the latest TiLite chairs the side guard clamps have steel locating pins that go through the titanium tubes to stop the clamps from rotating. Having said this one of the clamps on my son's ZRA S2 mysteriously lost it's pin allowing the clamp to rotate outwards to foul the wheel. Thankfully, our dealer sent a replacement immediately to fix the problem.

              I don't know about the sideguard clamp problem, I took mine off and use fabric side guards instead.

              But about jumping the curb, 8 inches is pretty high. It's about the highest I've come off of. Tough to get it really smooth, seems it's always tough on the chair. I have a Tilite TR and so far, everything is holding together. I try to keep myself mentally prepared though for the day when the chair breaks.

              My plan is to just call Tilite and place the order for a replacement, put it on a credit card, before I begin my serious panic. I don't have the money and it will take me forever to pay off that way, but it will be the least painful way of dealing with it. Just order the new chair, get it in ten days and have as little panic as possible.

                This is my chair, Quickie GTi.


                Put a pin through the tube, may be I can try on my chair, drill a hole on it.

                  I read the manual, it suggest that not to beat my chair, but I don't know if jumping 8 inches curb will consider beating it or not?

                  Does the fabric side guards works well with you?
