BEFORE USECarefully remove all packaging. Avoid using any knives or other sharp instruments as this may damage the surface of the walking stick.

Check the product for any visible damage if you see any damage or suspect a fault, do not use your product, but contact your supplier for support.

ADJUSTMENTS TO EXTENSION LEGSRemove the ‘E’ clip from the extension leg and extend all four legs evenly to the desired height ensuring you do not exceed the last punched hole of the extension leg. (See fig. 1)

Once you have achieved the desired height; reinstall the ‘E’ clip, ensuring that it has passed through the extension leg and is fitting neatly and snug around the outside leg. (See fig. 2).

Never install the extension legs unevenly or slanting, this will compromise the safety of the user.


USE OF BATH OILSCaution should be observed if you are using any form of bath oils or oily skin preparation with your shower chair as this may impair your natural contact skin resistance.

In the event of using any such oil, your seat must be thoroughly cleaned with a suitable detergent to break down any oily residue. Failure to observe this recommendation could impair your safety.

CLEANINGAll of the product components are manufactured from quality materials. However, it is very important that you only clean your shower chairs and stools using a non-abrasive cleaner or mild detergent with a soft cloth avoid using lime scale remover. Abrasive cleaners e.g. AJAX and or abrasive cleaning pads will seriously damage your product beyond repair.

Certain products have clip on/clip off backs and/or seats; you can easily remove these if required, clean with a mild detergent and soft cloth in a warm water solution. Do not exceed 50°C when cleaning the seat cover and/or back as this will permanently damage the plastic.

N.B. Regular daily cleaning will reduce the build up of limescale on your product.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES use any abrasive cleaners or materials on any of the components. Also check that the cleaner you intend to use is suitable for ABS, Vinyl, Polymer Plastics and Thermo plastic rubbers and Polyurethane Rubber.
