I tried it once, don't have any pictures but I basically bolted on a pipe to one side to clamp the socket block onto. I wasn't too thrilled with the results since instead of really traveling in a straight line the wheelchair tended to wiggle a bit due to the front casters. A lot of this could have been because it was an old rickety wheelchair and the floor was a little rough. Anyone else have any good luck with a wheelchair rig? It doesn't seem great for using with walking or running adults since the height would be so low, but it might be good for low mode or kids like in the shining.

Have some wheelchair items for sale:

- clear quickie spoke protectors 24"
- anti-tippers with hardware (haven't taken the time to remove the hardware from my chair. that's why they're not included in the picture)
- full length swing back/quick removeable arm rests with hardware
- half finger rough padded palm gloves size XS
- beverage buddy cup holder (can hook onto any part of the chair)
