Pack of 2 replacement Hingelocks for your Backfriend.

Price includes free delivery to UK addresses.

The Hingelock replaces and can be retrofitted to very old Backfriends which used the brass screw fixings.

The hingelocks WILL fit all Backfriends (even very old ones).

BUT on VERY old Backfriends there is a slight amendment to the standard fitting instructions. Take the two pronged part of the hingelock set. At the base where the prongs are connected, there is a small v shaped groove/snap line. Flex the prongs (or you can carefully cut along the groove with a pair of scissors) until they separate into two parts - remove any sharp edges created from the separated parts. Insert prongs through the backrest and then fit as shown in the video below or the diagrams on the fitting instruction leaflet (enclosed with the parts) but using the upper groove on the locking component.

2 x Replacement Backfriend Hingelocks

This is the third back friend I have bought. The first two lasted over twenty years. This latest one was bought for the extra padding on the seat.

I have an old backfriend, and needed replacement fittings. The advice from customer services was great - I initially thought the fittings would not work with my old model - they do, thanks to the very prompt and helpful guidance. Thank you
