Exit onto the landing safely
When you arrive at the top of the stairs you will need to swivel your seat round so that you exit onto the landing safely.
If you have a manual swivel you will find a handle at either side of the seat.
For the Simplicity, Van Gogh, Rembrandt and Vermeer, pushing down the lever allows the seat to be swivelled.
For the Simplicity +, 1000 and 2000 stairlifts by pressing either handle down, or pulling it up, you can swivel the seat around to face the landing, where it will lock in place, allowing you to dismount safely.
If you choose the powered swivel option the seat swivel is operated by continuing to hold the toggle or joystick when you arrive at the top of the staircase. The seat will move automatically while the toggle / joystick is activated. Our powered swivels have a manual override for emergency release to improve stairway access if required.
