Operating SkyMaster Transfer Chair

Brake Operation:

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


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.

Safety Belt Use and Storage:

The chair has four safety belts, two criss-cross chest belts, one thigh belt, and one ankle belt. Use these belts for safety. Tighten the belts as necessary to ensure passenger is securely positioned. Never move an occupied chair without the passenger being secured with the safety belts. 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.

Folding Operation:

To fold the chair, pull upwards on the front of the seat. The chair will fold fully. Once completely folded, attach the locking hook to the metal bar on the base of the chair. This locking mechanism ensures the chair will not open unexpectedly. To unfold the chair, unwrap the restraint belts securing the folded seat section against the back of the chair. Push down on the front lip of the seat to unfold. Flip up the rear push handle and flip the footrest down.

Important Safety Instructions:

When using your aisle chair, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of injury to the passengers, including the following:
  1. Read and understand all instructions.
  2. Never leave the passenger unattended in the chair. Narrow transfer chairs are less stable than regular wheelchairs. The passenger could tip and be injured if left unattended.
  3. Check all fittings regularly. Make sure the locking device is in good order, and that bolts and other parts are tight at all times.
  4. Be sure the belts are attached to the transfer chair, and buckles are working properly.
  5. Be sure all brakes are working properly.
  6. Be sure safety belts are fastened.
  7. Advise the passenger as to how the chair is operated.
  8. On stairs, or when lifting the chair, two attendants are necessary.
  9. Narrow on-board chairs are less stable than ordinary wheelchairs. Only leave passenger unattended if the location (lavatory, etc) is such that they cannot tip the chair and be injured.
  10. Chair is not for use, and to be stowed, during turbulence, taxi, takeoff, and landing.
  11. Chair is intended for use in locations such as aircraft aisles and lavatories. Do not use in inappropriate locations.
