Fig. 2
9.1.2 Unfolding
When unfolding the wheelchair, be careful not to put
your fingers between the pivot links, or under the seat
rails. Always push or pull on the seat upholstery. Make
sure the wheelchair is fully opened before transferring
or sitting.
• Tilt the wheelchair towards you; make sure the opposite
wheels are off the ground.
• Push the edge of the seat upholstery towards you until it
closes properly.
• Press downwards on both seat rails in order to engage the
lock mechanism of the wheelchair. It is necessary to push
down on the middle of the seat rails to make sure that they
are correctly positioned in the seat rail supports. You will feel
a click between frame components.
9.2 Wheel Locks
Never use wheel locks to stop wheelchair movement.
WHEEL LOCKS ARE NOT BRAKES. Make sure the
surface is not slippery as the wheelchair could move
even though the wheel locks are engaged.
Ensure that the stem locks imbed at least 1/8” (0.3 cm)
into the tire rubber when chair is in locked position.
Ensure the wheelchair is stable and locked with wheel locks.
• To engage the locks (Fig. 3),
push wheel lock handle forward
(for push-to-lock type) or pull
wheel lock backward (for pull-
to-lock type) until the lock is
fully engaged.
• To release the locks, pull wheel
lock handle backward (for
push-to-lock type) or push
wheel lock handle forward (for
pull-to-lock type) until the lock
is fully disengaged.

wheelchair’s frame.
