Choosing the Perfect Transfer Pole


So, I had my pole installed and would you believe I can't do a doggone thing with it? Drat, drat, and drat! Ok, fine, I find that I need an horizontal extension swing out bar to allow me to raise myself up from my power chair to my lift chair (in the photo above.)

WOULD YOU BELIEVE one can't buy just an accessory like that, oh no, one must buy an entire new pole WITH the accessory. (I know some of you will Google this, knock yourself out---I wanted to knock myself O-U-T after searching online for hours.)

Well, I bought the pole with an extra lift chair (this one is about due to retire), but the lift chair was not as described so I had to resell IT. But, I did feel like I kind of got this pole free, so, lesson learned. Hey, I gave it a shot.

Cost of next pole: over $200
