Wheelchair Clamp
Wheelchair Clamp Laying on Table

This clamp is designed specifically to attach to a wheelchair frame and can be oriented in any direction, vertically, horizontally, or on angled parts of the wheelchair frame. It will attach to tubular components ranging from 3/8" to 1 1/4". Although designed specifically for wheelchairs, it can be used to clamp onto any piece of furniture or object with tubes or shafts (like bed rails) with the diameters described above.  It will also clamp to tables up to 1 3/4" thick.

The opening near the top of the Clamp with a Thumbscrew constitutes an attachment holder that is an integral part of the Wheelchair Clamp. The integral attachment holder will accommodate either (0.675") Flex Arm or 1/2" Flexible Conduit that are used with the Mealtime Partners Drinking Systems but can be used to hold any tubes or shafting from 11/16" to 7/8" (17 to 22 mm) in diameter. For example, it can accommodate many of the different shafts that are part of a Sip N Puff control. The four photographs below illustrate the versatility of the Wheelchair Clamp by showing two different locations for attaching the MtP Front Mounted Drinking System to a manual wheelchair and also for attaching it to a square structural component of a powered wheelchair.

There are two threaded holes near the top of the Clamp on both sides of the Clamp where an optional Wheelchair Clamp Attachment Holder (MtP Part No. 4975) can be attached. The Wheelchair Clamp Attachment Holder is the same size and shape as the integral attachment holder and serves the same purpose. This provides additional locations and directions for attaching another Flex Arm, Flexible Conduit or Sip N Puff control shafting.
