Securing the wheelchair during transfers to and from the car

A simple strap can prevent the wheelchair from sliding away when transferring to and from the car

Description
A strap with a metal hook is attached under the driver's seat. The user can attach the wheelchair to the car with the strap so it does not roll or slide away during transfers. Slide the strap around the wheelchair frame and place the hook in the grip ring.

Authors comments
Securing the wheelchair is especially important on slippery surfaces or when parked on a slope.
