Safety System

The B&D Independence Interlock is designed with your safety. It is standard on all Leadership 61 Transfer Seat Bases.

  • The Interlock ensures that the Transfer Seat Base is returned to the driving position, which allows the Seat Belt and Air Bag Systems to function as designed.
  • Once the vehicle is in operation the Interlock prevents the Transfer Seat Base from moving accidentally.

The Interlock System includes an override switch, placed below the switch box which is mounted on the transfer seat base.

In the event of an emergency, the override switch can be activated to move your Transfer Seat Base when the vehicle ignition is on, or allow the vehicle to be started even though the Transfer Seat Base is not in the driving position.

An audible indicator will sound during the duration of the override’s use; the audible indicator will also sound to alert the user when the Transfer Seat Base is not in the full-forward position and the vehicle ignition is turned on.


180 Degree Swivel
Allows rotation of the seat 180 degrees, so that the user has greater flexibility in how they transfer into and out of the seat.


Safety Covers
A set of two covers that match the OEM interior of your vehicle. Providing OEM aesthetic quality and made with ABS material, these covers keep the moving mechanisms of the base concealed and protected. (Available on model L61 only.)


Hand Held Pendant
Our standard Easy Access switchbox with an extended harness and shorter switches provides the user with an increased range of where they place their controller.
