The Independence You Deserve
The EZ Lock system gives the physically challenged driver, or passenger, a degree of independence not possible with other systems. The EZ Lock does not require the attachment of cumbersome straps to the wheelchair, and an attendant is not required to engage or release the system.
The EZ Lock wheelchair
restraint system is a simple and effective means of securing an occupied wheelchair in a moving vehicle. Operation of the system couldn't be easier. The automatic locking mechanism simply requires that you guide the wheelchair over the top of the lock. The lock then receives the wheelchair mounted interface, and holds it securely. Once you have reached your destination, the wheelchair may be released with the touch of a conveniently located switch.
Your safety is the number one priority at Access Mobility Systems. Numerous safety features have been built into the EZ Lock system
- Functions include release, alarm buzzer deactivation for unoccupied use, and an array of warning indicators
- Green light signifies locking jaws are completely closed and system is safe to use
- Yellow light means locking jaws are not completely closed, and the user should exit, then re-enter the base lock
- Red light indicates the system has been de-activated, and is for unoccupied use only
Heavy gauge steel construction, relentless crash testing of the EZ Lock system and new wheelchair applications all consistently meet and exceed industry requirements.
EZ Lock has a long record of proven performance; and that's both in the university
lab and on the road. We even have our own fully instrumented 30 mph/ 20g crash sled.
"This van was T-boned at an intersection by a car that ran a red light. There were almost no
skid marks, so it may have been going 50-60 mph. The van ended up on the passenger side. The driver was not wearing a seat belt but was unhurt other than bruises. As you can see the floor buckled up under the wheelchair but the EZ Lock did it's job, and the chair didn't move. Thanks for building a good product." N. K.
