Custom Yakima Hitch Mounted Wheelchair Carrier

16 04 2011

This idea came from a customer’s need of transporting her wheelchair, but wanted something more stable than a tray on a hitch with bungees.  We started with the Yakima Hold-up 1.25″  hitch mounted bike carrier.

We modified this by flipping the rear bike tray so that the 2 trays are facing the same direction.  Next, I removed the hook used for retaining bikes and discarded it.  The chair is secured with the ratchet straps in the wheel hoops, and 1 hook over the armrest area of the chair.  The hoops for the front wheels were folded back against the footrests and secured with a tiedown strap.  This has turned out to be an easy to use great functioning system for our customer.
