You can trust that your oxygen tank will be secure and won’t risk falling off like a loose-fitting generic tank holder!

Pros

  • Designed specifically for Shoprider, attaches perfectly
  • Chair can still swivel

Cons

  • Can be hard to install, but stays put once it’s in

This tank holder is exactly like the one above, but the mesh bag can hold a slightly larger tank. It also holds onto more of the body of the oxygen tank, making it great for people who like to drive a little faster. It’s also easier to install than the metal tank holder, so it’s great for people who only need to have oxygen for a short time.

Mobility scooters are great for staying independent, but there are some places they just can’t fit. That’s why it’s helpful to have a small additional mobility aid close by when you need it. If you’re using your scooter indoors, having a cane holder attachment will always be a benefit. For instance, in a store or shop with narrow aisles, your scooter may simply be too large- but with a cane, you can safely get what you need and return to your scooter. This cane holder fits all types of canes and holds them still until you’re ready to use them!

Pros

  • Easy to install hardware
  • Keeps cane close for emergency use

Cons

  • A bit expensive for a cane holder
