For some extremely active dogs that typically bound over bumpy terrain and for active heavy dogs (70 pounds and up) the Reinforcement Brace is recommended. This aluminum bar, bolted to the frame and to the leg of the wheelchair eliminates the possibility that the spring-loaded knuckle could slip under extreme circumstances. The reinforcement brace can be put on with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver.

Reinforced Leg Attachment
You’ll need pliers and a screwdriver.
The knuckle is designed to hold a 150 pound dog. We have found though that if the knuckle is loose or goes over a bump, the teeth could slip. With heavy use, even a 70 lb. dog can cause the teeth to slip.
To prevent this, you will need our reinforced leg attachment. This metal bar attaches to the frame and leg strut to prevent any movement.
Squeeze the clips around the frame, the pliers can be helpful. Slip the screw through the clips and the rod. Secure with the nut. It does not matter whether the nut and the reinforcement rod is on the inside or outside.
Place the clips on the bottom of the leg and the back of the frame. The holes in the clip face toward the inside of the wheelchair.
Attach the Reinforcement Rod to the clip with the included bolt and nut.
The Reinforcement Rod has a slight bend at each the end so it fits comfortably between the two Clips (small size only).
