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.

We called our old Stairlift company and it took them 8 hours to call us back, and then they would let us know about a schedule to put us on. If they had to come right away it was $150 extra. I told them I would call them (NEVER). I called Acorn and they had a salesman here within 5 hours. What a nice guy. He took size of stairs, called in the next day the lift was installed.

We started out using it right away. Very helpful for my wife who has had both knees replaced plus back surgery. I have had 3 knee surgeries. Pacemaker, 7 stints. We hope this stairlift will give us many more years in our home. We are both up in the 80-year bracket. Thank you for all of your help and installation services.
