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

Thanks to my Acorn, I was able to purchase and enjoy my two-story home. Without this system and my husband and elderly mother would have been confined to a single level home which would have not been ideal.

Richard - New York

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.

From start to finished I was impressed

Sales person was very qualified and polite. Installation person was very polite and qualified.

Carol - Colorado

Everything went as promised. That doesn't happen with many companies today. The stairlift is wonderful. It was taking me up to 15 minutes to get to the 2nd floor. Being so tired, I would have to stop. Now it only takes 1 minute!

Harold B. -

Your sales representative was very efficient and informative. The installation engineer was thorough and efficient. He made certain we understood each step and were thoroughly familiar with the operation and safety features and how to contact someone for support. We appreciate his attitude and kindness!

Edwin - Colorado

Our installer was very professional. He explained his install process and gave great instructions for use. He was very kind with my father (95 years old) when he trained him on the stairlift. We were very pleased with the process.

The Acorn enables me to live on two floors rather than one. The Acorn stairlift brings me to my living room and also carries my groceries.
