Does it fit any wheelchair or scooter?
A: Yes. The canopy itself is generic,
but the mounting kit will vary slightly depending on the make and
model of your wheelchair or scooter. When you order, you will be asked
the make and model of your chair and approximate seat width (for wheelchairs).
When you receive your canopy, it will include all the parts that you
need to mount it to your vehicle.
How does it attach to my wheelchair/scooter?
A: It will take you approximately
15-20 minutes to attach the 2 mounting poles to your wheelchair/scooter.
These are black poles approximately 8" tall and less than an inch
in width so they will not interfere with the normal operation of your
wheelchair/scooter. Once the mounting poles are attached, then the
canopy slips in and out.
What is the Base Model vs. Vented Model?
A: The Base Model is made of solid
fabric and is less expensive. The Vented Model is similar, however,
it has mesh material on the sides and back instead of solid fabric.
The Vented Model is more popular because it provides more ventilation
for heat protection while still sufficiently protecting from sunlight
It is easy to use and store?
A: Yes. After slipping it off
of your vehicle, you can leave it fully assembled. If you need to
store it in a smaller space or take it with you , you can take 20-30
seconds to disassemble the frame (5 interlocking pieces) and put it
back in it's stuff sack (included). The stuff sack can then be put
away, or hung behind your wheelchair/scooter to take it with you.
Will insurance pay for a canopy?
A: If you have a condition that
is worsened by heat, sunlight, or sun rays, OR if you take a photosensitive
medication (i.e. most antibiotics, siezure control medications, etc.)
then speak with your doctor, therapist, or case worker to see if the
WeatherBreaker is recommended.
