the heavy duty docking pin which is attached to the wheelchair. The base and wheelchair mounted hardware are designed to withstand repeated operation and when properly maintained will provide many years of service. The wheelchair mounted hardware is designed for your specific wheelchair, and hardware is available for most of the popular wheelchairs manufactured in the United States, Canada and Europe.
