Reasons the product is recalled

The transit tie-down bracket assembly, used to secure the wheelchair in a vehicle, may fail in the event of an accident.

The hazards to consumers

If a user is seated in the wheelchair while the vehicle is moving, failure of the transit tie-down brackets could result in a serious injury or death.

What consumers should do

Consumers should stop using their wheelchair as a passenger seat in a vehicle until repairs have been made.

TiLite Aero Z
Permobil Australia will contact consumers to provide instructions on how to re-orientate the tie-down bracket system. The tie-down bracket system should be re-oriented into a rear-facing configuration and placed in the rearmost position.
