The Iris can be attached to using the holes in the frame or with a bridge clamp.
The Iris is often chosen for its tilt adjustability. Attaching to the frame ensures the mounted devices remains in a good position, no matter the tilt angle.
She needs to tilt her wheelchair throughout the day, but she can still access her ipad!
In this case, the Adapter Plate 4 is attached to the frame in a vertical orientation. The Adapter Plate 2 is attached to the AP4, bringing the Wheelchair Bracket placement forward, past the armrest.
The Wheelchair Bracket is attached to the Adapter Plate 2, providing good placement for the mount.
The Adapter Plate 2 is attached to the frame with two thru holes. The slots on the plate allow for different hole spacing. Use two bolts, spaced as far apart as possible, and lock nuts.
Attach bridge clamps to the horizontal tube and vertical tube, bridging them with an Adapter Plate.

Offset options

Offsets attach to the wheelchair attachment hardware, and are used to:

  • Get around obstacles such as trays, brakes, footrests and armrests
  • Position the Wheelchair Bracket so the post is in the optimal position (post can be inserted and removed, brakes are unobstructed, footrests removed, accommodate the tray, etc)
  • Adjust the angle of the hardware and/or bracket to make sure the post is vertical

These plates can all be used to offset. To figure out which offset plate will work for you, see our Offset Guide.

How to mount: 

There are multiple options for attaching the mounting hardware to the Quickie Iris.  It mostly depends on how the chair is confiured.

Attach bridge clamps on horizontal and vertical tubing.  Bridge across clamps with an WC-AP4 plate.  Attach the WB2 (post clamp) to the adapter plate.  You may possibly  need a WC-AAP (angle adjust plate) between the adapter plate and the post clamp to get the post back to vertical if the chair is always in tilt position.     

Another option would be to attach the adapter plate directly through the holes in the tubing with included long bolts and nuts.  Used coved spacers to provide a flat surface for the adapter plate against the round tubing.

Note that the inner telescoping tubing on the horizontal tube is 7/8".  If the foot hanger is adjusted further out you may need a 1" clamp for the vertical and a 7/8" clamp for the horizontal.  

****Collar Clamp size on smaller telescoping tube is 21 mm*******    7/8" Bridge Clamp works....7/8" Collar Clamp is too small.  There is one adjustment size on the telescoping tube that is too small for a bridge clamp.  This would be a situation where a 21mm collar clamp would need to be used.

How to mount: 

Approach 2: Attach using collar clamps with an Adapter Plate 4. Attach one to the horizontal tube, and one to the vertical tube, taking care so the footrest can still be removed if necessary. Use offsets to position the Wheelchair Bracket as needed.
