Operating AisleMaster Transfer Chair

Brake Operation:

To release the brake, pull on brake lever located on push bar. To activate brake, release brake lever.

Turning the Chair:

AisleMaster turns differently from other boarding chairs. To turn your chair, lift chair back slightly so weight is off the rear wheels. Pivot the chair on its middle set of wheels. This way your chair turns on its own vertical axis. You can make extremely tight turns in this manner.

Headrest Adjustment:

Raise and lower headrest by pulling the release button on shaft. When transferring a passenger to your chair, lower the headrest as you may work low and close, for maximum safety.


Flip the nearside armrest up when transferring a passenger to your chair. Your passenger may use the far side armrest as a support bar during transfer. If passenger is slender enough, lower both armrests after passenger is seated. For broad passengers, leave armrests pivoted up.

Lifting Occupied Chair:

To go up or down stairs into an aircraft, within a terminal, etc., two attendants are necessary. One attendant lifts the chair using the front footrests, and one attendant lifts using the rear lift arms. The front lift arms telescope from the footrest. These arms lock by means of release buttons. The rear lift arms pivot upwards from the backside of the frame. Release buttons lock the rear arms in position. Before lifting your passenger, make certain all four lift arms are locked in place with their release buttons. When going up or down steps, your passenger must always face the downhill direction. That is, the attendant lifting the rear handles will always be several steps higher than the attendant lifting the handles that extend from the footrest.

Safety Belt Use and Storage:

Your chair has four safety belts, two criss-cross chest belts, one thigh belt, and one ankle belt. Use these belts for safety. When the chair is unoccupied, keep the belts buckled so they do not drag on the ground. The thigh belt has a stowage clip on the rear of the frame. This clip keeps the thigh belt from dragging when not in use.

Maintenance of Aislemaster:

Check that all bolts, safety belts, grips, and other parts are tight and secure at all times. Lubricate moving parts periodically – armrests, lifts handles, wheel axles, etc. Use oil or WD-40 lubricant. Clean your chair with liquid soap and household cleaner. Keep metal parts dry to prevent deterioration of the finish.

Important Safety Instructions:

When using your AisleMaster Transfer Chair, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of injury to persons.

  1. Read and understand all instructions.
  2. Never leave a passenger unattended in your AisleMaster, which is less stable than regular wheelchairs. Your passenger could tip and be injured if left unattended.
  3. Check that all bolts and other parts are tight at all times.
  4. Be sure the belts are attached to your chair, and buckles are working correctly.
  5. Be sure brake bar works properly and that brake is in a locked on position when the brake bar is activated.
  6. Advise your passenger as to how your chair is operated.
  7. Be sure safety belts are fastened.
  8. Ensure armrests are lowered for passengers slender enough to fit between them. For broad passengers, leave armrests pivoted up.
  9. On a slope (such as a jetbridge) always walk so you are downhill of your chair. This means on a downhill slope you will be walking and rolling your chair backwards down the slope.
  10. On stairs, or when lifting your chair, two attendants are necessary.
