Crutches on trike

Postby nigelnightmare » 26 Jun 2020, 4:49pm

Does anyone know how I can attach a pair of crutches to an ICE Qnt with mesh seat and rear rack fitted.
Must be secure but easy to get at.
TIA.

Quickest and easiest....

A couple of "Broom cilps" - choose ones that fit the crutches securely

Bend the fixing plate to to fit the crossbar of the seat, and then fix in place with a Jubilee clip. One on the upper bar, and one on the lower bar

The crutch just clips on and is held securely. If you want additional security, a cinch strap will offer all you need.

If this is unsuitable, I have other options

Thanks @Cunobelin

I've gone for these that I found on eBay.

I'll give an update after they're fitted & tested.
