Great item to help provide safety.
Debby Layson
Work great, last well, make locking the wheelchair easy for folks with weak arms or decreased feeling in their hands.
ChampagneSipper
I received the handle on time and it fit the brake, if perhaps a bit loosely.

Be forewarned. This item and price is only for one single brake handle.

I thought I was buying a pair. I was misled into thinking it was a pair because of the plural "Brake Handle Extensions" in the listing. However, it does show a picture of a single brake handle.

Also the sleeve slot is 1/8" not 3/16" if that is required.
The handle that came is actually longer than 6" more like 8 1/4" including the rubber tip.

They need more description to avoid confusion. I was told by one of the Amazon sellers that this would fit my Invacare EX2. It does not. It might fit a Drive Medical wheelchair since that is the manufacturer.

I finally found what I needed at a medical supply site that clearly offered a choice between 1/8" or 3/16" slot and 8" or 6" handle.

The extensions are quite sturdy. We put them on a very old Invacare Rolls wheelchair. They fit snugly over the thickness of the old levers, The openings are a little longer than the width of the old levers, which results in some back-and-forth play. The extensions don't feel like they would fall off. Considering the age of our chair (15+ years) and it being a different brand, we're delighted to have something that works at all. Old brakes that had been very difficult to engage are now very easy.

The short original levers were angled outward. We chose to bend them inward to keep the extensions from sticking out past the wheels.

These do the trick, allowing my elderly Mom to set her brakes with a minimum of effort.

However, they do fall off when you transport the wheelchair, which is danged annoying, having to find them and jam them back on again.

I have squeezed them together, tapped them on... but they work loose. Maybe they could sell them with a little rubber gasket or something, to help them stay on?

Good concept, just wish they wouldn't fall off.

I purchased this item for my mother's wheelchair. It is difficult to review the handle extensions because they did not fit the connections on her wheelchair. Unfortunately, the description of the extensions did not indicate that there could be a problem. I assumed that the fittings were universal. I will say that returning the extensions was a very simple process following Amazon's guidelines.

Drive Medical 8" Wheelchair Transport Chair Brake Handle Extensions, Chrome, 8"This fits my chair but I was surprised to get only one break. Who would think you would be getting one break when every wheelchair has two breaks. It should be plainly stated that there is only one break. The 'S' should be left off the word extension.

I received the handle on time and it fit the brake, if perhaps a bit loosely. I was surprised to discover it only included one handle, however. The Product Title calls it "...Brake Handle Extensions", and since every wheel chair I know of has two brakes handles, I assumed it was a pair of extensions. Not so.

I have never written a review before but I should warn potential buyers that it is only 1 handle. It does state that it is sold separately in the description at the bottom but it states "extensions" in the large print at the top. I'm not going to bother sending it back and I will order a pair from another dealer. But I don't think Amazon Prime should have this vender in their Prime Membership.
