"Bought to help an elderly Mother (94) get in and out of a car. It has helped tremendously. It provides a handle for her to hold on to when lowering into the car seat from the wheelchair and also gives her leverage to push herself up out of the seat to a standing position. Have found with use that for her it works best with the red part of the bar facing outwards towards the open passenger door when getting in the vehicle and then the red part of the bar facing forward towards the front of the vehicle for getting out of the vehicle. "
"I purchased this for my 80 year old mother to use to help her get out of her car easier. My son had seen something similar but it wasn't built very sturdy. This one feels as if it has the steel bar all the way through the handle, then the handle is coated with a soft, easy to grip material. You place the protruding piece of heavy metal into the U shaped"loop" on your car frame where your door would latch into and it grabs it in one of the slots in the metal piece, you have the handle facing outwards and you can press down on it to help yourself out of the car. It holds up to 350lbs."
