STAIRS AND ESCALATORS
Scooters are not designed to travel up or down stairs or escalators. Always use an elevator.
WARNING! Do not use your scooter to negotiate steps or escalators. You may cause
injury to yourself and to others and/or damage your scooter.
n Determine if the door opens toward or away from you.
n Use your hand to turn the knob or push the handle or push-bar.
n Drive your scooter gently and slowly forward to push the door open. Or drive your scooter gently and
slowly rearwards to pull the door open.
Modern elevators have a door edge safety mechanism that, when pushed, reopens the door(s).
n If you are in the doorway of a elevator when the door(s) begin to close, push on the rubber door edge or
allow the rubber door edge to contact the scooter and the door will reopen.
n Use care that pocketbooks, packages, or scooter accessories do not become caught in elevator doors.

transportation. Pride recommends that you closely review the instructions, specifications, and safety infor-
mation set forth by the manufacturer of the lift/elevation product before using that product.
WARNING! Never sit on your scooter when it is being used in connection with any type of
lift/elevation product. Your scooter was not designed with such use in mind, and any
damage or injury incurred from such use is not the responsibility of Pride.
