Sure-Lok retractor makes wheelchair securement fast, easy

Posted on March 24, 2015

Sure-Lok International LLC has introduced the Titan800, a new retractor to the existing TITAN product line. The retractor is designed to meet the latest WC18 industry regulations, which take effect December 2015.

“To fully secure wheelchair passengers in seconds, you have to have a perfect system from the floor up,” said Q’Straint/Sure-Lok VP of Business Development Robert Joseph. “The Titan800 features innovative improvements that take performance and durability to a new level.”

While completely redesigned, the retractor will have familiar highlights including:

  • An auto-tensioning feature that helps webbing automatically retract into the housing and stay off the floor, keeping it cleaner and increasing product lifespan.
  • A Positive Locking Indicator (PLI) for L Track applications that gives operators quick visual confirmation that the retractor fitting is safely locked into the vehicle anchor system.
  • A J-hook configuration that makes it easy to swiftly secure a wheelchair in seconds — with only one hand — and keeps webbing flat and untwisted when properly attached to the wheelchair.


According to Joseph, when used with a complete Sure-Lok System comprised of wheelchair tie-downs, occupant restraint system (including lap and shoulder belt), and track and anchorages, the Titan800 easily meets the requirements of the RESNA WC18 standard and is compatible with WC19 wheelchairs. WC18 governs the systems used to safely secure wheelchairs within personal or commercial vehicles. The new standard, coming December 2015, improves passenger safety and establishes a more efficient and independent securement process.
