Hook-i Ratchin

The Hook-i Ratchin is a new front restraint system with at least three metres of heavy duty webbing (4.5 metres of lightweight webbing satisfactory for current ISO 10542 compliance).

Unlike the traditional method of restraining the front of a wheelchair using separate inertia reels, the Hook-i Ratchin features a synchronised reel function. This greatly assists belt withdrawal and retraction, and minimises the possibility of the belts 'binding'. In addition, spring strength remains constant and does not deteriorate if the belts are left extended. In addition, the unit features a manual release for use in the event of an emergency.

Three ISO approved versions of the Ratchin system provides flexibility to fit into different sized conversions.
