General Details

Extra product information

COLOURS: Available in two variations: 1. Black knob with a grey cover; 2. Wood/Black knob with a grey cover.

FEATURES: An additional feature is the "hill holder" which keeps the vehicle still while the hand moves between the gear lever, or hand brake.

The hand control is fitted in conjunction with the car`s cruise control to avoid the need for constant acceleration when driving long distances. This function disconnects automatically when braking.

METHOD OF USE: Pull the lever backwards, and the car accelerates. Brake by pushing the lever forward. The "hill-holder" function is activated by a button on the side of the lever at the position of the thumb.

Carospeed E operates in the same manner as outlined above, plus the electrical regulators (windscreen washer, right and left indicators, headlights, horn) are fitted into a small joystick on the top surface of the lever.

COMMENTS: To make the steering easier with only one hand , a steering wheel knob can be fitted to the steering wheel.
A flip away armrest can be fitted to the car seat for the arm operating the Carospeed lever.

A removable brake pedal cover can be fitted to prevent feet from being trapped under the brake pedal during driving.

Options

Set function for cruise control; indicator toggle switch, steering wheel knob; armrest; brake pedal cover.

Installation

A universal hand control that can be fitted to most vehicles with automatic transmission. It is fitted into the floor beside the driver`s seat. The cabling is secured behind carpets and panels. The vehicle can be restored to original if required.

Installation must be undertaken by an authorised technician.
