    I'd have to live my life completely without a wheelchair back while the seamstress/cobbler/whoever worked on the back. Unless I can find someone to do it while I wait, I can't really live life without a back.

    Funklab, how wide is your chair? I think I may have a couple of 17" wide TiLite backs of varying heights. I use a Jay 3 hard back but they always send the soft back when I get a new chair.

      Oh my god!! I'm a pig! I haven't washed my back in ten years!
      You certainly should have a spare.
      Post up your width ASAP and someone will probably rescue you! I'm coming out of my cave sometime soon to ship some electronics; I'll be at UPS. If I have a back your size I'd be happy to send it to you.

There may be a way to track your Ser. number through TiLite or vendor as it seems it would be on original invoice. Might come in handy in the future. I can definitely see why one would remove stickers on stuff, but removing the serial #? Holy cow, surprised someone does that.


        I have the same back 15 years but... its got holes in and the back mesh is gone but it works wheels at 15 years to the orginal 1ones
