Designed for drivers with limited hand function, the Handbrake Easy Release reduces the amount of grip required to move the handbrake and eliminates the requirement to depress the button.
The Handbrake Easy Release easily fits over a standard handbrake and allows the user to engage the button without articulation of the thumb. This allows users who have difficulty flexing their thumb joint an easy alternative to a vehicle with an electric handbrake.
The adaptation also benefits users who find it difficult to grasp and pull a standard handbrake. To apply the handbrake, the standard handbrake easy release can be engaged by simply lifting your hand up when your palm is flat and facing upwards.
Increased mechanical advantage reduces the amount of force required to depress the handbrake button.
By using the central webbing fastening system we ensure the handbrake easy release is fully secured to the handbrake with no damage.
Some vehicles do not have a conventional handbrake. We have tailor made designs for a wide range of these models. Contact us to discuss your own requirements.
Hand Operated Parking Brake Easy Release
Some vehicles have a foot operated pedal to release the parking brake instead of a handbrake lever. This adaptation enables drivers who are unable to use their feet, to operate the parking brake by hand.
