Soft Back Wheelchair:
Use preexisting screws on the back canes on the chair. The back canes are the part of chair that stem up into the handles that are used to push a wheelchair. For the upper straps, use the screws located closest to the top of the chair and for the lower straps, use the screws located towards the bottom of the chair. Therefore, the lower straps should be secured right above the wheelchair user’s pelvis.
Hard Back Wheelchair:
May require drilling into the back of the wheelchair. When deciding where to drill, it is best to have the wheelchair user sitting in the chair with the chest harness in place. From this position you can choose where the straps need to be fixed to the chair. After that remove the wheelchair user before drilling and use the included hardware to attach the harness.
Used primarily when the chest harness is installed on a hard back chair. Adjusts the length or release the straps.
Typically used with the anchor tri-slides to help control strap length.
