welcome to the real mobilities
installation video for the Firefly
I am Santiago and I’m going to
demonstrate the installation process for
you first things first I’m going to take
out all the parts that came in the box
and laid them out on the floor I shall
have two foam blocks the black foam
blocks
the tea frame
in a smaller box with the clamps the
charger box
the drivetrain
you
I take off all the fun
I can use scissors to cut the zip ties
and being careful not to drop the
battery and there is a battery rail that
the battery will mount onto so I want to
be careful not to pinch any of the
cables so now I want to make sure that
the battery is fitted correctly onto the
rail there is a little u-shape on the
back that I need to match to the rail of
the battery rail
you
so now I’m prepared to do the second
part so I can put these aside for a
moment and then I’m gonna work on
putting the clamps together to point of
attachment to the wheelchair so I open
up the smaller box
and I shall have plastic shapes of
different sizes
and also the black clamps with the
hardware so for different sizes of
shames to match any size of tubing in
the box
I should also have a t-handle tool with
three bits four five and six millimeter
bits
I want to take the six millimeter bit
and put it inside my tool and then I’m
going to undo the clamps to open them up
this is what’s going to attach to your
chair
so I’m unscrewing and opening up the
clamps making sure I don’t lose any of
the hardware the lock washers and all
that
so now I have my clamp open and I’m
going to use the thinnest shims that
will match the wheelchair that I’m
installing it on so there should be four
pieces in each bag and as you can see
I’m putting them each half on each half
of the clamp
now I’m ready to put it onto the chair
screwing one side and then the other and
I want to have to not be too tight yet
because I need to make adjustments later
tighten them a little and leave them
there for a second and I’m gonna move on
to do the other side so same process on
the other side I have the plastic shims
I have my clamp I open up the clamp and
then put the two plastic shims between
the clamp and do the other leg of the
chair
you
so I tighten them a little and they can
still move around on the tube after I
done that I’m gonna move on to making
sure that they are level by using a
leveler you can also use a ruler and you
can measure from the ground up to the
bottom of the clamp making sure that
both clamps are even they’re at the same
height this is very important for you to
make sure that everything is nice and
level and using my tool again I want to
just type them a little more so they
don’t slide up or down now that I’m sure
that they are level
so this is the T frame I’m gonna take
all the foam off the T frame is packed
in the orientation most convenient for
packing but you will need to adjust it
so you can attach it to your wheelchair
you want to have the pinned with the
button on top facing away from you then
you want to rotate the arms 180 degrees
towards you so the latching system will
end up closest to you on the inner side
of the tube close to your legs
now I just noticed that my latching
system is on the outside where it should
be on the inside so I’m gonna change it
to the opposite side you might have to
loosen up the color to do this process
or they might just slide out easily
so once i’ve
that I’m going to latch it or hook it
onto the clamps I want to make sure that
the back hook goes in first
so the latching system might put the
latch down i hook the back hook first
and then I can see once it’s hooked in
the back I can use the latch to hook the
front so here I’m showing a close-up of
how you should hook as you can see the
pain in the back
latches first and then the front by
using the latching system the little
lever so I’m showing how they go on and
off back hook first and then latch it
when you see the green indicator that
means you’re latched on correctly if you
don’t see that indicator in your
latching system go ahead and take off
the tee frame again and try to hook the
back hook first and then latch the front
pin and you should see the indicator on
both sides so the T frame can be
adjusted to different widths of the
wheelchair I am going to demonstrate how
to make it narrower for narrower chairs
and then I will go back to make it
lighter for this specific chair these
90-degree elbow tubes one side is
shorter than the other and you can make
it into wider or narrower so I’m going
to demonstrate
you
now we will tighten the clamps fully
before moving on to the next step
you will tighten until you hear the
click on the tool these tool is designed
to provide maximum tightness in no more
when you reach the maximum tightness the
tool will click loudly and you will be
able to tighten no further
so at this point I’m ready to install
the drivetrain
I want to line up the paints with the
two holes upper and lower hole and the
upper pin has a button once I’m lined up
I can get the head of the upper pin in
and then push the button in so that way
the pin will go down all the way and I
want to make sure that the head of the
button is released meaning is all the
way up once you’re hooked in or locked
in and you should not be able to pull
out the drivetrain
from the T frame it should be locked in
place you should hear a little click
once you’re clicked in I’m gonna go
ahead and put the handlebar on PI
unscrew this little quick-release here
it’s a three-part quick-release it’s got
one screw and in the front facing you
it’s got a little latch and a little
metal piece that goes inside as well
make sure that you don’t lose any of
these parts so taking these off
putting the handlebar on so the display
shall be on my left hand side and then
close this clamp and put the
quick-release on again and these might
be a little tricky because the quick
release the little barrel inside comes
out you just need to be patient with
yourself here
I might have to use my t-handle to
tighten it more or I can do it by hand
with the little handle here the little
latch
you can do it by hand whatever is
easiest for you you just want to make
sure that the handlebar is nice and
stable
once I make sure that is nice and tight
and we’re gonna go ahead and do the
final adjustments to make sure that it
fits me correctly for my height the
length of my arms and that is not too
close or too far away from my body so
I’m gonna take off this extra foam from
the fork
and now I’m going to use my phone blocks
to put underneath the casters
and I want to make sure that my brakes
are on so I don’t slide off the foam
blocks I’m not sure if you can see the
wheel is up in the air so I’m gonna
loosen up everything on the T frame to
make my final adjustments and make sure
that it’s fitted exactly to my body size
in shape there are three colors on
either side and again using my tool I
can loosen up all those screws
and the wheel just came down so I want
to be nice and centered I don’t want to
be lopsided and I want to make sure that
there’s a slight bent on my arm and that
I can see in front of me it’s not too
low too close to my knees or too high up
impeding my vision I’m gonna show here
the stem can pull out so I’m gonna pull
it out a little more because I want more
height and then make sure that it’s nice
and tight again you want it as tight as
possible
okay so
adjustment I like the height making sure
that I am level on every side both sides
up and down
I want to make sure that there is a
slight bent on my elbow that I’m not
reaching too far or that the steering is
not too close to my body or to my knees
and once I’m content with the adjustment
I can go ahead and tighten everything
down so I want to make sure I hear that
click on every screw so I’m tightening
all the colors on the left and right
side three colors on each side 12 screws
total that I’m tightening down I want to
make sure I hear that click on every
screw
you
you
and I’m almost ready to go for a ride I
have all my adjustments made I think my
brakes off
so I turn on the battery and then to
turn on the display I use the middle
button to turn on the light I hit the
upper arrow and hold it for five seconds
I’m gonna go ahead and take the foam
blocks out from underneath
so I’m ready to roll
I can also put it in
okay everything looks good I’m also
going to show again how to turn on the
battery in the display so I’m turning on
the battery I can see the lights that’s
on enough on your display you have three
buttons the middle button is the power
on and off button the upper arrow
controls also the light by holding the
upper arrow key for five seconds
it’s likewise for two-minute off this
also controls the power level of the
motor when you start you will start at
level one and you can go up to level
five the down arrow key has only one
purpose to lower the power of the motor
if you’re in power level five down arrow
will bring you down from 5 to 1 and the
speed will come down as well so now I’m
going to show the charger this is a 36
volt charger I can plug it as I have it
right now or I can take the battery off
the rail as well
and the little plug is on the right side
of the battery
once I plug it in I should see a red
light on the charger and green if it’s
completely charged
you should take about four to five hours
from being fully empty to completely
full so again showing how the battery
fits on to the rail
I don’t want to pinch any cables and I
want to make sure that the battery is
actually on the rail as I slide it I
push it down and he’s got a little C
channel at the top that I want to match
and then push it down and that should
keep it in place I also have a locking
key these does not turn on and off the
battery that only is to lock it in place
each battery comes with two locking keys
one key can be left in the battery so
you can lock it in place on and on and
the other one you can keep it in a safe
place in case you lose the first one for

Firefly Wheelchair Attachment Review

The Firefly wheelchair accessory is an electrical scooter attachment that converts a standard manual wheelchair into a power-driven trike. It is compatible with all standard manual wheelchairs but usually requires clamps and assembly for attaching to the vehicle’s frame for use.

The most significant aspect of the wheeled wheelchair is the motor and its power system. The standard battery and charger pack is used to recharge the batteries or provide power. Some wheelchairs are equipped with battery packs that are easily removable and can be mounted on the rear window.

The standard wheeled wheelchair is a self propelled mobility device, generally for use in places where cars cannot easily be brought. The vehicle’s engine serves as the main power source and the battery serves as the main power supply. The batteries for these devices are typically large enough to supply the vehicle’s power for about half a day.

The most common type of Firefly wheelchair attachments is the power-driven trikes. The main difference between these two types of wheelchairs is that the powered wheelchairs have a series of small pedals which enable the rider to move forward and backwards. This movement enables the rider to travel from one area to another, or to stand up or sit down in one spot. The powered wheelchair has two pedals and this allows the rider to turn the vehicle by moving one leg in the opposite direction.

Firefly wheelchair attachments come in several different types and sizes. The most popular are the electric powered wheelchairs, which are commonly known as electric-powered wheelchairs.

The next most popular type is the non electric powered wheelchairs, which are usually referred to as a battery operated wheelchairs. These are often used in hospitals and other healthcare facilities due to their limited maneuverability.

Electric powered wheelchairs, commonly referred to as portable wheelchairs, are the most popular of all wheelchairs. They can be used both by individuals as well as in vehicles. They are also very lightweight, so they can be easily carried from place to place.

Other wheelchairs also come with a rechargeable battery pack. These batteries charge and can be used over a longer period of time. This means that the batteries can provide more than one day of power when fully charged. Although, this is not necessarily the case as some batteries may need to be replaced within a few hours of being used.

Some wheelchairs also come with a folding feature allowing them to be taken along on camping trips. Although this is not usually necessary, many wheelchairs include a folding armrest which allows the rider to rest in peace while they are traveling. The best thing to do is to buy a Firefly wheelchair attachment that provides sufficient space for your wheelchair and the other equipment you are traveling with. A good rule of thumb is that your mobility aid should allow you to be able to sit back and relax when you are not using it.
