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.

Testimonials

The salesperson was very efficient and explained all quickly (not wasting my time) and thoroughly. The tech, Juan, who installed the lifts, was excellent! He did a great job.

I am glad I made the Acorn choice. It serves my need perfectly and allows me more than one trip up stairs if need be I should have done it sooner.

Charles - California

I am very pleased with the Acorn Stairlift. The salesman was very polite and professional. Life has never been so great, it was torture trying to get up and down the stairs. My wife has terrible osteoarthritis. She loves the stairlift. We will be telling everyone about it. Excuse the writing, arthritis in my hands as well. God bless you all. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Every person I had contact with was nice and pleasant to work with; from the woman who answered my initial phone call to the salesman and installer. They all tried to work with me on scheduling and price and the installer explained everything. Everything was done with the courtesy and efficiency and I would recommend Acorn.

I really like my Acorn Stairlift. I feel much safer with the Stairlift negotiating my stairs. Am able to use my craft room and theater room at home alone. I don't need to wait for someone to be home for me go downstairs.
