    That's good to hear that they'll work on Spinergy's. How do they mount to the chair? I used to have a .pdf I downloaded from the site, and I couldn't really tell. It looked kind of like you have to replace the hub of the wheel though.

      The aluminum hub is mounted to the wheel. The piston housing is mounted onto the frame. A cable goes from the piston housing to the levers, which can be mounted anywhere, but usually on the front frame, just under the seat. When the levers are pushed, the cable pushes the piston out of the housing, which then engages into one of the holes on the hub. The opposite happens when the levers are pulled. Special set ups can be made for only one lever if a person only has use of one hand. The levers are very easily pushed and pulled and can be done with only one finger!

      When the brakes are engaged the chair does not move at all. There's a picture of them on the spinlife.com web site.

                every so often tighten the nuts and bolts that hold the brakes together, if they get loose the brake doesnt work as well.
