Umbrella holder for wheelchair I came to this idea the other day watching a fellow getting soaked while he rolled his wheelchair wearing a cloak under the rain. I don't know if you can find somerthing alike in the shops, but he didn't have one and surely he would have found it really handy if he had had it then. So here it is, for the benefit of all of you that are less fortunate than me and cannot walk (but in any case, still like to get out when it is raining).
The device is composed of five pieces of plastic (ABS or similar) to be printed. You will also need one broached head cap screw M8 x 70 mm and a M8 nut to fix it to the wheelchair. The device is designed to be attached to any wheelchair tube from 22 to 25 mm of diameter, and it should hold any umbrella with a handle diameter 14 to 28 mm. The umbrella can be dettached with no tools.
I haven't printed one myself (I haven't got a 3D printer) but I hope everything assembles nicely . Please let me know ([email protected]) if you find any glitches in it or if you think it can be somehow improved, and I will gladly redesign it for you. So just print it and enjoy the sunny side of the street !! (even if it is raining)
So if you like the thing and you are not getting wet anymore, why don't you tip me? I'll really appreciate
Special thanks to Vaclav Krmela who helped me improve the design and test printed it !!
