Leash Hook Attachment for Wheelchairs

BLD’s exclusive wheelchair Leash Hook Attachment is designed to work on nearly any type of wheelchair (power or manual) to conveniently hold a leash.

The Leash Hook Attachment is designed for people with quadriplegia, those with very limited hand and arm movement, or for anyone who needs a convenient, hands-free way to manage their leash with their wheelchair. This special hook is designed to be used with our Wheelchair Leashes, but can be used with your own leash.*

This is the hook attachment only (leash not included). Save $5 EACH when you buy two or more!

BLD’s Leash Hook Attachment is handmade in Colorado using a specially fabricated hook mounted to a stainless steel plate that is securely fastened to a sturdy nylon webbing and Velcro wrap. The inside of the attachment is lined with gripping material to keep it in place. A separate piece of grippy material is also included to add extra holding power or diameter to the tubing if needed.

The Hook itself is designed to pivot with the gravity of the leash so the leash does not come off accidentally, but can be lifted off at any time.

Easy to install with no tools required!

We’ve made the attachment as easy to mount to the wheelchair as we can, although some clients may need a friend to help with the initial installation.

The Leash Hook Attachment wraps around a part of the wheelchair with Velcro.  It can be mounted to the tubing, frame, or around the armrest of a wheelchair or mobility scooter. Velcro doubles back onto the wrap to create a strong and secure mount.

When selecting the location to attach the hook, be sure to choose a part that is structurally sound, appropriately sturdy, will not interfere with the function of the device, and within easy reach of the user. Also, be sure the chosen location will not cause damage to the wheelchair should the leash be pulled or get caught on something. If using around a wide part of the wheelchair, such as an armrest, the Extender Wrap will be required.

Ideas to consider:

Using more than one scooter/wheelchair? Consider ordering a hook for each mobility device.

Some clients prefer to use a two hook system. You may prefer to have a hook to connect the end of the leash and a second hook to hold the rings that shorten the leash. This prevents accidentally removing the whole leash when lengthening the leash.


Measure the circumference around where you want to attach the hook. Select the orientation to match the part of the wheelchair you will attach it to (vertical or horizontal).

* Whatever leash you use, please be sure it is the right length; it should be minimal and short, without excess to drag or get caught on objects or in the wheels, and must have an O-ring to drop onto the hook. Please read the safety considerations in the Safety Note tab.


Standard Hook Attachment fits diameter of tube/frame up to 1.5″ (3.8 cm)
Circumference of up to 5″ (12.5 cm)

With extender wrap, Hook Attachment fits diameter up to 4″ (10 cm)
Circumference of up to 10″ (25 cm)

Wheelchair Leash Sizing:

Regular half-inch wide (12.7 mm) is recommended for most dogs and people as it’s sturdy for any size dog, yet not too heavy. If you like a wider, heavier leash and larger hardware, select the wider option. In leather, the wider option is 5/8″, and in Brahma it is 3/4.”

Safety Considerations:

These products are intended for use with fully trained service dogs/assistance dogs/pet dogs that have excellent leash manners. We’ve designed all of our Wheelchair Leash options to manually detach from the wheelchair in the event of an emergency situation. Why? Because it’s simply a smart idea!

Only you can determine if letting go of the leash and attaching it to your wheelchair is the right choice for you and your dog.

Attached leashes (fastened to a person, wheelchair, or other mobility device) are not safe for all dogs and/or users of wheelchair/mobility devices. Please choose your equipment wisely and use responsibly.

Do not use wheelchair leashes with an untrained dog. Not for dogs that pull on the leash. Wheelchair leashes must NOT be used with dogs that lunge or are difficult to control, as this could be very dangerous. Additionally, DO NOT USE FOR PULLING A WHEELCHAIR.

Please note: If your strength or dexterity is limited, you may need assistance from a friend to install the wheelchair attachment and make the initial adjustment to the leash. Once attached and adjusted, the leash will remain at the desired length and is easy to connect to and remove from the wheelchair.

    The best $40 I have ever spent! I can’t image a day without it, it has been a life changer for us.

  2. Chanon Gallow

    After 6 yrs. the hook is great, even after several crashes. It’s somewhat bendable back in place. For heavy power chairs may need to drill it right into chair frame. I’m still 100% for the hook/leash. Good job Bold Lead Designs!

  3. Penny Vlasich

    My daughter and her service dog is facing many new challenges. In the last couple months she has been unfortunately transitioning into using an electric wheelchair on a more regular basis. She has tried many different options for her to help guide her service dog along her chair. We purchased this Leash Hook Attachment last week and used it at our MN state fair two days, Como Zoo, and at the Mall of America. It works wonderful. It is easy for her to attach the lease and yet the lease stays in place. You can attach it anywhere on the wheelchair. She used it close to the arm so she could assist in guiding him through the crowds. Thank you Bold Lead Designs! Well worth the money!
