Axles for Wheelchair Wheels

£60.00£72.00

A pair of quick-release axles for Loopwheels (or indeed conventional wheelchair wheels),  in various lengths.

Description

A pair of adjustable quick release axle for the loopwheel (or any wheel) on your wheelchair. (Contact us if you want to buy just a single pin, not a pair).

Choose from a standard ½ inch (12.7mm) diameter quick release axle, which fits many brands of wheelchair, or a 12mm diameter is also available. Choose from 99mm, 104mm, 109mm or 120mm lengths. Contact us for other lengths if required.

Choose from the dropdown menu for the correct length and axle diameter. Each axle is adjustable in length by up to 4mm in either direction.

The grey Loopwheels logo in the centre of the pin looks great in your Loopwheels!

Which length is right for my chair?

We have found 104mm to be the most common axle length, but all wheelchairs vary and may require a longer or shorter axle pin. If you’re not sure which length is right for you, check out the diagram and/or drop us an email.  We may be able to obtain other alternatives too.

Measurements of our 104mm quick release axle.
Measurements of our 104mm quick release axle. L = 104mm; L1 = 45.9mm and is the part of the axle that passes through the wheel. L2 is the part of the axle that goes into the chair.

12mm or ½ inch diameter?

Our loopwheels are made with a standard ½ inch diameter bearing. ½ inch is 12.7 mm. If you already have ½ inch axles with your chair, you will probably not need to purchase new ones to fit loopwheels. You can stick with using your old ones!

We can also make loopwheels with a 12mm diameter bearing, as some wheelchairs use this metric size rather than the very slightly larger ½ inch (12.7mm). It’s important to get it right, so please measure or check with us before you order. A 12.7mm (½ inch axle) won’t fit a 12mm hole. And a 12mm pin will wobble in a 12.7mm fitting. The metric 12mm version are NOT very common. All Sunrise Medical and Invacare chairs take ½ inch axles, but some other makes take the metric 12mm, eg some Ottobock chairs.
