5 Stars Swing Away Arm

Kay from TN wrote (August 12, 2016):

My husband had a stroke in 2014 and he was able to install the swing away arm into our hitch and also the mobility carrier as well. Both items were made by the same company and both came from Discount Ramps within the last year. We have been nothing, but thrilled with this company and their products. Whenever we have had a problem they have been very quick to handle it and make things right.

4 Stars It works, but not very well on my car

Melissa from FL wrote (February 08, 2016):

Scratch and dent it wasn't, it was like new. I bought this so I could still get into my 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe while I had the wheelchair carrier attached to my car. The swing away arm works well except it doesn't quite swing away enough. My hatch back door scrapes the arm unless I push all my weight against the arm, then it barely has enough room to clear the arm. It's easier for me to lower the ramp and open the hatch back door. So while the quality is great, I'm sorry it doesn't work better on my car.

5 Stars solid and easyuse

we brought the swing away arm (along with the SC400 Ramp) for a member in our church who recently lost the use of her legs. The swing arm is easy to install, its heavy duty but also easy to move. With the swing arm you have full access to your vehicle.

5 Stars need different sizes

Angela from WA wrote (May 06, 2015):

Rage needs to offer different sizes for this great product. I have an 02 Windstar & this S/A is too short by 8". I bought both the S/A & the 500 rack And although I am a disabled senior, I had very little problem assembling & installing the 2 units but was very disappointed to find I could not open my rear hatch even with the unit swung away. The S/W offered is only suitable for the Cute uts or small hatchbacks but not the standard minivans or SUV's. I have plans to have the unit I have altered to fit. I have a friend that is a certified Class A welder so I will have it lengthened by 8" & reinforced by sliding 2 pieces of heavy walled 1.250 square stock into the 2 bars & plug welded together before welding the 2" square stock extensions in place. I had to make my residence in Wa. but actually live just above the 49th near Blain Wa.

5 Stars scooter carrier swing a way accessory

Gene from CA wrote (January 16, 2015):

1. Allowed the carrier to clear spare tire in folded storage mode. 2. Allows ability to fully open back door and full access. 3. Height adjustable for ground clearance. Changes incline of ramp as expected which may be problematic for some. 4. Ease of operation. 5. Cantilevered setup will experience some sagging after extended usage requiring some lifting to clear frictional forces between the segments when opening and closing the swing a way. Grease is necessary between the segments.
