Optional Extras

Acorn 130 Straight Hinge Demonstration

Manual Hinge

If there is a doorway near the foot of the stairs the optional manual hinged rail is ideal.

The lower section of the rail can be folded up and out of the way manually, allowing greater access at the foot of the stairs.

When the stairlift is not in use, the rail is neatly folded out of the way and causes no obstruction.


Our salesman was very knowledgeable and courteous. He was very professional in his presentation. Installer was also very professional, courteous and knowledgeable. He was sure to provide detailed instructions on how to operate the stairlift. Very satisfied with your company and your representatives. I would recommend Acorn to anyone who needs a stairlift.

The phone response was within a few hours. The saleman came here within that day I called. He was friendly, local knowledgeable. Not pushy. The installer was finished sooner than expected. He was patient when we tried out the stairlift. We had a wonderful experience with both gentlemen. Good job guys. Well trained.

I got an Acorn stairlift installed this past Friday (7/21) and it was the best experience ever!  Everyone I dealt with at Acorn, from the person I initially talked to on the phone, Dawn Jandik, to the lady who came to measure my stairs and give me more info, Dianne Lucchetti, to the service person who installed it, David Vaughn, was extremely friendly, helpful and professional.  All of them deserve a raise!  They all made the process very easy and  stress-free.  I would recommend Acorn to anyone!
