The Slender Fender wheelchair fender guard is a patented assistive wheelchair device designed to deflect dirt, mud, and water splatter from the wheels landing on the rider.
The Slender Fender, and universal mounting kit, has been designed to fit most wheelchair chair brands on the market. As long as the wheel chair has a round or oblong tubular frame then it will likely fit. If you are unsure, please contact us: email@example.com
There is something about parenthood that gives us a sense of history and a deeply rooted desire to send on into the next generation the great things we have discovered about life. And part of that is the desire to instill in our children the love of science, of learning.
The Slender Fender comes in 2 sizes: adult or child, and is available with or without the universal mounting kit.
If you plan to mount the fender guards onto existing mud guards then you do not need the universal mounting kit.

Remove seat sling and install 3/8” spacers (provided) in between the top of the seat rail and fabric seat sling underside.
Attach the Slender Fender post receiver clamp to the wheelchair seat rail as close as possible to the wheel centre. Slide in the vertical post with the widest slot on the post facing inwards towards the seat sling.
Check lateral clearance: Position the Slender Fender onto the vertical post for a dry test fit. Make sure the wheel spokes don’t make contact with the fender surface. If there is contact reposition the wheel laterally on its’ axle and re-tighten securely.
Place your fender on top of the tire using spacers (provided) to establish equal spacing between the top of the tire and the inside of the fender. While holding the fender securely against the vertical post, drill a ¼” diameter hole through the wide slot and through the plastic fender approximately in the middle of the slot.
Install the ¼”-20 lock nut (provided) into the wide slot of the vertical post. Put the ¼”-20 screw (provided) through the plastic fender first and then mate it with lock nut. Tighten the ¼-20 screw enough so that you can slide the fender vertically while you position it over the tire.
Double check the clearance between the tire and the fender shell to be certain confirm that’s your preferred position for accessing the push rim.
Holding the fender firmly, drill the second hole through the ¼” clearance hole at the top of the vertical post. Install the next 1 ¼-20 screw and lock nut (provided). Tighten both screws firmly with your 5/32”Allen key.
