As a result of a small number of incidents reported to the MHRA where the spreader bar has detached from the carabiner, Invacare has introduced a new lockable carabiner. The new lockable carabiner will be fitted as standard on all new Birdie lifters manufactured from 1st March 2015.


The lockable carabiner will also be available as a spare part (service kit part number 1583279) for

existing customers who have previously purchased Birdie Lifters. In addition to this, a thorough

review of the instructions for use has been completed and an enhanced user manual has been

Produced.
