STAY-PUT Seat Belt Buckle System
BRAND NEW PRODUCT RELEASE
Ken & David will be at the ATSA EXPO in Sydney on the 13th & 14th of May to demonstrate and show you just how safe and simple the Stay-Put system is to use.
It can be seen at the FREEDOM MOTORS display area.
1. Two seat belts in one: The Stay-Put seat belt buckle looks and operates the same as any standard seat belt buckle that is used today when the Security system is not in operation.
2. Simple to use: Once the driver of the vehicle has switched the dashboard module on, he/she will be able to activate/deactivate any of the security controlled buckles by pressing any of the selected buckle push buttons.
3. Accident Safety Feature: In the event of an accident: A resetable Inertia safety cut out switch (which is an important safety feature of this system) will deactivate the security system, reverting the buckle/ buckles back to their normal seat belt buckle operation.
4. Passenger Safety: This security system has been designed so it can never remain, or stay, in a secured position if there is no power going to the security unit. Once this happens, these seatbelts will always return to normal seatbelt operation
If interested, please call our sales team. All inquiries welcome.

Available for ordering right now, the latest WAT TAXI FREEDOM CAB based on the very popular KIA GRAND CARNIVAL chassis. Designed and built by FREEDOM MOTORS AUSTRALIA, it is the most reliable WAT TAXI on the market in Australia. Built to the latest state and commonwealth taxi design and clear- space requirements, you are assured of your vehicle staying on the road because if fully complies. It is also fully backed up with a 200,000 Km KIA factory warranty on new vehicles purchases. This vehicle comes with a lot of options including: Electric front wheelchair restraints, full set of restraints, a lockable restraint storage area, full size side steps, spare wheel mounted securely in the cabin, reversing parking sensors, rear double fold down seat (Not in Victoria), and the wheelchair area is fully carpeted and rubber on the wheelchair floor. Yes, our prices are not as low as the so called budget modifiers. If you are thinking about purchasing a conversion of one of them, remember this: you get what you pay for and another thing to remember is that you want it to last at least 1 million KMs. If want to see the owner of that budget company more than you see your own family to get your budget modification repaired all the time, go-ahead. Remember that if you invest in a modification with us, that we will look after you all the way, and hopefully you won't have to visit us at all for repairs, just for general maintenance now and then, because the FREEDOM CAB has been designed to last & last. Call us for a no obligation free demo on 1800 672 437
Again we would like to warn all those people who are considering purchasing a wheelchair modified vehicle from one of those backyard discount modifiers. They will promise you the world and give you only worries. What they will give you for the money seems great when you place the order, but they do not tell you about how many times you will have to visit them to get things repair. They don't tell you about the hard ride, the cheaper materials used, the fumes getting into the cabin, the rust, the actuators that fail just when you urgently need to go somewhere or even the backyard pigeon shit welding that is done on really important parts of your vehicle. Anyway we inspected another so called cheap price conversion from a very disgruntled customer who is considering a class action lawsuit against the discount company who has modified his vehicle. If you are also one of these disgruntled customers private or taxi or you know who is, and would like to have your or their modification looked at, give us a call on 1800 672 437. If you are interested to talk to the disgruntled customer regarding the class action law suit, we can also arrange this for you. See warning further down this page!

WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
Are you one of those customers who have purchased one of those modifications from a BUDGET company? Does your vehicle conversion have the following symptoms? Rattling, Shaking, Leaking, Electrical breakdowns, Rust, Exhaust fumes inside the vehicle, High Tire wear, just feel unsafe on the road or received no engineering certificate? Are you a Taxi driver and you are driving to a job and then finding out you can not fit the wheelchair customer or have to jam the customer in? Look, all companies will have some minor problems turn up now or then. We normally don't criticize our opposition, but we have seen some vehicles recently that we feel obligated to warn you about. There is a reason why these companies can supply a budget conversion and it is not because we overcharge our customers. Just as an example, a concerned BUGET company customer visited us recently with a vehicle we would consider a death-trap. This vehicle had exhaust fumes coming inside of the vehicle, the fuel tank hoses had no hose clamps fitted with a definite fuel smell. Wiring and hoses underneath the vehicle were just hanging loose and could tangle up on anything it may hit on the ground. The way the suspension was done could break any moment and was bending and touching the modified floor. There was a lot of noise and rattling while driving. The customer also told us they never received any Engineering certificate and can not show any info regarding Beaming & Torsion tests or Rear Suspension welding Particle test certificates. Some of the other problems observed were, hand brake cable rubbing on rear wheel, exhaust installed rigid with not play at all. Other observations are, steel petrol tank instead of Stainless Steel, inferior materials used, welding on cast iron suspension???? Etc etc. Anyway, if you have one of these vehicles we are willing to do a free written safety check for you. And for those who are considering a budget modification, BE WARNED. To all taxi drivers, we understand that price is an issue, but remember your vehicle must last at least 1 Million Km's.
