Bags & Panniers Information

Glanmor bags for wheelchair and scooter are available in 3 very different styles – HOLDALL, PANNIER, or POUCH.

All are made using a durable woven PVC coated polyester (PVC on the inside) in black, navy or burgundy.

A fourth style is OXYGEN BAGS for wheelchair and scooter.

Three sizes of holdall are available–

13” wide with a deep 16” height and 6”depth (standard design)

16” wide with a shallow 13” height and 6” depth (wide design)

16” wide with a deep 16” height and 6”depth (jumbo design)

All the holdalls are provided with a handle for transportability.

The lids are edge-reinforced with plastic to increase strength and to maintain their shape.

Heavy-duty zip closure is also used to ensure strong closure. (The use of Velcro hook and loop closure was used on earlier models but dropped, because the bags might open under the strain of heavier contents.)

And because none of us have eyes in the back of our heads, - we even supply our holdalls with a security cord, so that you can detect whether the zip is being opened without your knowledge.


When mounting onto the back of a scooter, a holdall needs to be supported on the backrest.

Two methods are use to mount the holdall onto the backrest
– a flap passing from the top seam of the holdall to the bottom seam, OR
- a webbing harness .

The flap method requires that the backrest is not encumbered by a headrest, but - if the flap can fit between the support posts of the headrest - there is no problem!

A flap must also be able to fit under the backrest, that is, through the gap between the backrest and the seat.

Normally holdalls with a flap are left on the scooter permanently once installed. If it is necessary to be able to frequently mount and remove the holdall, when used for carrying shopping, say, then the harness method of attachment may be the better option.

Since it will straddle a headrest and is not threaded between the backrest and seat, the harness option is better suited to quick fitting and removal.

Both methods of attachment are adjustable to suit from small thin backrests to large thick backrests, and backrests of varying width.

Flaps contain the choice of two channels through which a webbing cross-piece is passed and tightened with a locking buckle, while harnesses have sliding buckles to adjust the tension of the harness.

Wheelchairs & Powerchairs

Most wheelchairs and powerchairs have pushing handles which can take the strain of a back holdall.
Consequently, handle loops installed into the top rear seam of the holdall will support the holdall on the handles.

Flapping of the holdall against the back is prevented with the aid of a webbing cross-piece at the bottom of the holdall.

Occasionally powerchairs do not have pushing handles, and the backrests are well padded. In this case either of the scooter holdalls – with flap or harness – will be the choice.

Specials Holdalls

Because holdalls are the most popular type of bag, we also offer additional features.

For example we can supply holdalls with side pockets to hold crutches, walking sticks, or umbrella. Or a 'hybrid' holdall for the user with both wheelchair and scooter.


Panniers are a bag mounted on the side of a scooter or assisted wheelchair. Panniers are not practical for manual wheelchairs because of the big wheels.

The method of attachment is with webbing and adjustable locking buckle. (Velcro is not up to the job)

Glanmor panniers come in 3 different sizes. The most suitable pannier size for a scooter or wheelchair is determined mainly by the length of the frame supporting the armrests.

The position and length of the armrest pad is not important since the webbing hanging ties can tie equally around the pad, or the scooter or wheelchair frame.

The standard depth of the bags is slimline (3”) - although we can adapt back holdalls for side mounting on request, please enquire!


The pouches are more like a handbag for holding personal and valuable small goods on a wheelchair but may also be used with a scooter. For security they are best mounted on the inside of the side panel (wheelchair) or armrest (scooter).

The zip opening of the bag is offset to the side making it easier to access the bag.

Two lengths of bag are available, and the ideal size depends mainly on the armrest length.


The oxygen bag is intended to hold a 300 litre oxygen bottle plus metered operating valve, combined height approximately 20”.

The amount of oxygen in the cylinder can be read through the clear vinyl door flap. A handy pouch for storage of a breathing economiser is provided at the front.
