Wheelchair Tie Downs for Used Handicap Vans
According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), any government or private organization offering public transportation must make provisions for wheelchair-bound people to be safely transported.

4-Point Tie Downs –
- consists of four straps that attach to the wheelchair and the vehicle/van floor
- requires outside assistance to safely tie-down correctly
Electric Wheelchair Restraints –
- contains an anchored device that is mounted on the floor of the vehicle
