A Chair Fastener is the part of a ConnectIT Wheelchair Mount that clamps onto the wheelchair: either on the Seat Rail or around a bar to tube that is part of the wheelchair's construction.
All of the ConnectIT Wheelchair Mount kits require a Chair Fastener to be selected at the same time that the Wheelchair Mount is selected. It is a necessary part of the mounting system, but one that will vary depending upon the wheelchair. The only exception is the Captain's Chair Mount, which already includes the Rectangular Chair Fastener 501771.
