Built for Safety. Every detail of our Rubex electric powered stairlift is designed with your safety in mind. We build safety sensors into the footrest, include a locking mechanism in the seat belt, and give the motor instant reversing capability. With automatic limits at each end of the track, standard mechanical and electrical slack cable safety devices, and a fail-safe mechanism that prevents operation until the seat is in the correct position, this stairlift is one of the safest on the market today. It is ETL listed and meets ASME A17.1 and A18 safety standards for public and private use. We also include call stations for both top and bottom landings, which can be mounted to the wall or to the floor. Read more about AmeriGlide stair lift safety standards.

Easy "Homeowner" Installation. Unbelievably, the AmeriGlide Rubex electric powered stair lift simply plugs into the nearest outlet. No special wiring is needed! You can install it on either the right-hand or left-hand side of your staircase; you can even switch it from side to side without any additional parts.

Sleek Design Compliments Any Decor. The AmeriGlide Rubex electric powered stair lift is available in an attractive almond finish with your choice of vinyl seat color. When not in use, you can easily fold up the padded seat and flip up the footrest and your stair lift only takes up 14 inches of space. It's so compact, other people in your household always have full use of the stairs.

Pros

Safe, Sturdy

Cons

Poor instructions. Marginal packaging. Box flap open. Loose motor mount bolts.
I ordered by phone and received excellent service from representative. When unit arrived an accessory (basket) was missing. Invoice did not show back order but a quick phone call solved the problem. Basket arrived in a couple of days stating "back order" status. In the box containing the drive unit I found a loose bolt which turned out to be one of the motor mount bolts, two out of the remaining three were in place but loose. Another box had a loose, open, flap but fortunately nothing fell out. Installation is not difficult for someone with some mechanical savvy. If you are mechanically challenged you should find someone to help you that isn't because you will not get there just by just reading the instructions. There were no problems getting the unit running. I do not like the magnet mounted travel switch because the magnet does not hold it in place well - I added some sticky-back foam tape to secure the switch to the arm rest bracket. In operation the call switches have to be held down until the chair arrives, in my case that takes 30 seconds. It would be much better to have switches like elevator call switches: press momentarily and lift arrives and turns switch off. Overall I am satisfied with the unit. I am a retired mechanical engineer and have designed similar products in my past and this one is well designed and well executed - except for the instructions which are pretty lame.

Service & Delivery

Our stair lift was delivered in less time than I thought it would be with no shipping damage and all the parts were there. Installation was easy, even for my house. I have an "A" frame house and the stairs are very steep. I didn't think that one of these stair lifts would work on my >45 degree stairs. When I called Ameriglide they worked up a drawing and emailed it to me to look at. I compared the drawing to the actual stairway and realized it would work. I ordered the stair lift, installed it, and am very glad I did. Now my wife has the use of the whole house again after not being able to climb the stairs for 4 years. Thank you folks at Ameriglide for giving us back our house.

The stairlift is used to give our son access to our basement. We installed the lift ourselves. The instructions are easy to follow and everything fits together perfectly. When we received the unit there was a puncture in the seat back. I called customer service and they replaced it promptly. No question! Great service and very willing to help. I would highly recommend to anyone needing access to other levels of their home, etc.

Successful Installation.

Average Health, Elderly

Pros

Safe, Sturdy

Cons

Installation instructions are excellent.I counted the pieces, and bought three additional track bracket bolts, before I found four shipped with the unit box. Page 7 Item 2 lacks clarity - measuring it twice will not correct a sagging track - what should be done? I found that the track did not sag, but I had to do a bit of work at the track joint alignment. The pendant control switch is a weakness - I glued it to the side of the unit, which is much more convenient. Otherwise no problems, and worked perfectly first time. Congratulations on producing an excellent, Robust product, well suited to its duty.I will be happy to show it to any potential customers in the west Montreal area.

In Stairlifts Simple IS Better!!!

Pros

Seat needs to be better

We replaced another brand of stair lift that was less than 2 years old. The transmission failed and it jammed halfway down with my 90 year-old dad on it. We could not get service from the factory and all of their representatives had gone out of business in a 3 state area. The AmeriGlide Stair Lift product is simple, tried and proven technology that I am familiar with from my ATV riding... A rugged winch and no gears or cogs to jam and no circuit boards to fry. What a great product!!!
