Parking Brake Extension Lever
Until several years ago, parking brakes, also known as "Handbrakes”, were almost always controlled by hand. Nowadays, an increasing number of vehicles are supplied with foot operated parking brakes and as a result, many disabled drivers with limited foot control, primarily those requiring full hand controls, are unable to control this new design. In order to enable such drivers to activate the parking brakes by hand, a Parking Brake Extension Lever is installed onto the vehicle´s original parking brake pedal. The problem with this solution is that when the parking brake is activated, the extension lever obstructs the legs when the driver enters and exits the vehicle.
 

SHAHAR Driving Systems Ltd. has developed a slightly smarter extension lever. When the parking brake is released, the extension lever is adjacent to the dashboard and a special spring mechanism enables the lever to return into the same position after the parking brake is employed.
