Snappi® Wheelbase and Interface

The Snappi wheelbase is manufactured from high-grade aluminium which combines strength and durability whilst offering a lightweight, easily foldable frame suitable for everyday use. Height adjustable push handles are fitted as standard for the comfort and convenience of the attendant. The high quality wheels and castors ensure that this versatile wheelbase is easily manoeuvred around town

The unique, centre mounted gas strut, tilt in space facility is easily operated by the finger lever, mounted on the push handles and offers an exceptionally high level of seat tilt of between 0 and 40 degrees. There are no fixed positions for the tilt in space facility and the special slow release gas strut ensures the comfort of the disabled child at all times.

The quick-release interface allows the seats to be mounted upon, and removed from, the chassis with ease. The Snappi interface incorporates increased safety features, which include an innovative spring loaded catch to prevent little brothers, sisters or other children from fiddling with the release lever and accidentally releasing the interface, a point which can often be overlooked. The interface has hard-wearing stainless steel mounting points to prevent wear and a further safety mechanism to ensure the seat can only be put on the chassis correctly.

The wheelbase is available in two sizes. The size 1 Snappi is designed to accommodate the smaller size special seating systems, for example, the Nursery Snugseat, or a size 1 Modular. The Size 2 Snappi is designed to accommodate the medium size special seating systems, including the Junior Snugseat, and size 2 Modular.

The wheelbase and interface have been designed not only to fit our Snappi Seat, Snug Seat, Modular Seating System, Foam Karve & Moulds but also to allow alternative Seating Systems to be fitted.

If you wish to use the Snappi wheelbase in conjunction with the CapsII or MiniCAPS Seating system then you should only interface using the passive locking interface which is available from Active Design. A joint compatibility statement is available here.

The Snappi wheelbase and interface have been successfully crash tested according to ISO7176/19 with the Snappi Pushchair seating system, Snappi Snugseat, Modular Seating System and the Leckey Squiggles and Mygo for impact resistance, ensuring safe transportation of the occupant in specially adapted vehicles.
