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.

A Little About Myself

Old School

Pros

No small flimsy parts. Great design.

Cons

Instruction booklet should have better overview at beginning.

Service & Delivery

On time and well packaged
A pleasant surprise compared to most items similarly purchased today. Straightforward, well thought-out and engineered. Installation was not difficult for me and my son. Eighty -eight year old mother-in-law loves it. Simple, quiet operation. Had great support from the company. All questions answered honestly and completely. Well worth the price. Did I say solid?

Simple strong design

A Little About Myself

Civil engineer, computer tech, handyman

Pros

I like the relatively simple, yet strong design. It is basically an electric cable winch mounted on wheels in a track with a seat on top. It is easy to install and setup. The install video on the Web site is very helpful. I like the full AC option as there are no batteries to mess with.

Cons

I had to adjust the power cord to get the chair to travel as low as possible at the bottom end to meet my daughter's special needs. This need is probably very rare for most installs.

Service & Delivery

Easy to order. Delivered promptly and completely.
I ordered one stair lift to see how it would work. Then I ordered two more to take care of the other half of split level stairs and an inside stairway to the garage level. Highly recommend renting a professional grade hammer drill to drill holes in concrete! Makes that job fast and easy. I used Tapcon concrete screws.

Very nice value

A Little About Myself

DIY kind of guy

Pros

The components appear to be very well built and sturdy. Ordering was a breeze, and everything arrived exactly as expected. It took about 3 hours start to finish, but probably could have done it in less time; I like to double & triple check everything I do.

Cons

None that I can really think of.

Service & Delivery

As expected
Very good product for the price. I was expecting to pay double the amount that I did, and I certainly didn't figure to be able to install it myself. Happily, I was wrong on both counts.

Cons

Excellent Purchase!

A Little About Myself

Older male engineer.

Pros

The two stairlifts we purchased were a life saver for my wife after back surgery. All of our bedrooms are upstairs and would not have been able to have a normal life during her recovery if not for the stairlifts. I am even 58 years old and was able to install them by myself whether I should have done that or not.The one heavy part was the challenging thing to get up the stairs. My wife constantly says how they were her lifesaver when riding them up or down the stairs.

Cons

The manual was a little confusing in a couple of spots but being an engineer I was able to figure out what they meant. A person that does not work on cars, house, etc. should probably not tackle the installation themselves.

Service & Delivery

They arrived on my front porch exactly when they were supposed to arrive.

The unit is just outstanding and I have recommended it to several other people who have similar cirmcumstances coming up.

A Little About Myself

Retired VW mechanic now disabled

Pros

Quiet motor. Easy to operate. It is able to manage my weight 275 without problems. Feel very safe.

Cons

Have no problems so far.

Service & Delivery

The delivery was fast. No problems. But the service man was so far away, 6+ hours, that took longer. We didn't realize that the extra track was in one of the boxes, so he had to come back again. It took 2 weeks to get it installed. He did have experience with the lift. Just one of those things. Would be better if there were more service persons available.
Was unable to use steps and was in the house for months at a time! Now can come and go without harm. Like being released into life again. Thanks to my son for purchasing it for me. What a lifesaver!
