  • Pack of 4 replacement Hingelocks for the Backfriend.
  • Price includes free delivery to UK addresses.
  • The Hingelock replaces and can be retrofitted to older Backfriends (pre 2006) which used the brass screw fixings.
  • BUT on VERY old Backfriends (purchased before 2006) 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 (you can see the v grove in the product image above). 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.
Pack of four replacement hingelocks.
Full fitting instructions supplied.
