Accessories to attach to the wheelchair

Various accessories are available to attach the winch to the wheelchair frame. The winch is equipped with a belt buckle, in which the following accessories can be attached.

B&S Winch-Lock

The B&S Winch-Lock is a special version of the B&S Wheelchair Winch, which can be integrated into a 4-point wheelchair tie-down system with 2 electric lockable retractors in front (mostly used in WAV’s). This way, the features of both systems are combined with each other in a synergetic way.

The principle is that the retractors are not connected directly to the battery, but they are powered directly by the Winch-Lock. This means that the retractors can only be unlocked when the Winch-Lock is operated. Due too the fact that noting is changed on the installation of the tie-down system, it still complies to the ISO 10452 standard.

B&S Winch-Lock is universal and easily integrated with the familiar locking systems as Q-straint, Unwin, Dahl, AMF, Quick-Secure and Handi-Secure.
