The carrier consists of a baseplate which is fitted under the towbar ball, (1).
A framework slides onto this, secured by a ringpin, which supports the wheelchair. The framework is made from zinc plated steel, and can simply be folded up and removed from the towbar when not in use, (2).
On removal of the securing pin, the framework can be tilted towards the ground, (3).
The wheelchair can now be be loaded by tipping the wheelchair onto its rear wheels and pulling it into the supporting base, the base at this time only being 75-100 millimetres above the ground, (4,5,6).
Tie down points have been incorporated into the design.
