Type of Attachment or Accessory: 
Attachment

Item Name:
RGK Frontwheel

Tell us what your attachment looks like: 
This is a single wheel that clips on the front of my wheelchair and lifts the castors away from the floor. I previously had a freewheel, but upgraded. This is because this wheel always has the front wheels of the floor, regardless of direction. It also has a smaller turning circle.

How did you get this attachment:
Paid for it myself.

Please explain how you attach/remove the item from your wheelchair or scooter:
There are two brackets, which you attach the frame to the wheel first. Then with the second bracket, the wheel gets pushed down so that you're ready to go off road. To take it off you first lift the wheel and then remove the frame. There are two small brackets that permanently stay on your chair.

Do you struggle to be in your wheelchair or scooter without this item?
Yes

Personal Opinion:

This item is great on bouncy terrains, but also on normal pavements really as it stops you getting caught on little drops and pavement imperfections. Combined with the Smartdrive it allows me to go over (dry) grass really easily. It is also supposed to work in snow but I haven't had that experience yet.
