The BL-6290 Base Lock:

Entry into lock is mechanical and the release is attained by an electrical pull solenoid. There is an emergency mechanical release that is also incorporated as a safety measure (in case the vehicle loses battery power). The base lock is mounted to the vehicle floor and acts as a receiver for the interfacing pin that is mounted to the wheelchair.

The design is based on the BL-6290 Docking Base, which is time tested and has proven to perform extremely well. The BL-7317 had additional features such as a longer service life, as well as simplifying routine maintenance.
The Wheelchair Bracket:
The interface bracket is mounted to the wheelchair allowing it to lock into the BL-6290 docking base. The EZ Lock system can accommodate a wide array of wheelchair styles, including both manual and power wheelchairs. Although we provide an interface for most of the wheelchairs currently on todays market, it is advisable to first check with EZ LOCK, or your local adaptive equipment dealer, to ensure that we have a system appropriate for your particular wheelchair. When consulting your dealer about availability it is helpful to have the name of the manufacturer, your wheelchair model and model number, and to note any accessories that might interfere with the bracket installation (i.e. reclining or elevating seat, vent tray etc).

The Main User Interface for EZ LOCK System. Functions include release, alarm buzzer deactivation for unoccupied use, and an array of warning indicators. A green light signifies locking jaws are completely closed and system is safe to use. A yellow light means locking jaws are not completely closed, and that the user should exit and then re-enter base lock. Red light indicates system has been deactivated and is for unoccupied use only.
