The challenge

Umbrella walking stick holder for electric scooterThe client uses an electric scooter, and wished to be able to carry her walking stick and an umbrella with her on the vehicle.

A length of 68mm diameter plastic tubing for the umbrella, and a similar tube of 41mm diameter for the walking stick were each fitted with aluminium alloy plugs with two aluminium split clamps bolted to the bottom of each plug. The tubes were then clamped to the steel bumper of the scooter, one at each side.

The client is able to carry her umbrella and walking stick safely on the scooter. Previously she had had to tie them onto the scooter, which was felt to be dangerous.
