Valet Plus Turning Seat
Bruno Valet Plus Turning Seat
The Valet Plus power turning seat from Bruno Independent Living Aids is designed to provide easier access to minivans, most full-size pickup trucks, most SUV's, full-size vans and some CUV's.
This power seat is a step up from the standard Valet seat and offers a upgraded seat with a choice of upholsteries, optional armrests and an optional heated seat and back.
The Valet plus seat is available for driver side or passenger side installation in both the front and mid position of most vehicles.
Installation of this power seat involves the removal of the existing vehicle seat and replacing it with the Valet seat base and seat. With the Valet plus the installer will program the seat to meet the needs of the user and and make its use as efficient as possible.
No permanent modifications are done to the vehicle allowing the Valet to be removed for transfer to another vehicle and re-installation of the original seat.
