11 Annual Product Inspection 12 Re-issuing Leckey Products 13 Product Servicing (Therapist, Technician, Leckey Product Advisor, Dealer) Leckey recommend that each product should be subject to a detailed inspection at least once a year and every time the product is reissued for use. This inspection should be carried out by a technically competent person who has been trained in the use of the product and should include the following checks as a minimum requirement. 1. Check all knobs, nuts and bolts are in place, replacing any missing items. 2. Check the chassis height adjustment mechanism is working properly. If the chassis is foot pedal operated ensure the seat height doesn’t change when the pedal is released. Also, check that the locking pin engages securely to prevent accidental height adjustment of the chassis. 3. Adjust the seat to its maximum range of tilt in space and ensure that the locking lever locks the seat out securely at varying point in this range. 4. Check that where the seat and chassis join there is no visible wear and tear on the metal components. 5. Lift the base to check each castor individually. Make sure they are moving freely and remove any dirt from the rubber wheels. Check that the brakes lock the wheels securely. 6. Visually check the structure of the product paying attention to weld points on the frame ensuring there are no signs of fatigue or cracking around the welds. 7. Leckey recommend that a written record is maintained of all annual product inspections.
