For people with limited hand movement or with reduced finger dexterity, a simple lever can be used to eliminate the need to depress the release button on the handbrake.
If you have difficulty operating a standard handbrake, an easy release handbrake reduces the lever grip required and eliminates the use of the thumb to depress the button.
An electronic parking brake is another option whereby a small actuator is placed under the lever in conjunction with a switch fitted to the dash which when pressed will electronically apply the brake.p.
HANDBRAKE EASY RELEASE
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.
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.
