General Details


The supplier recommends that the hand controls be installed at their premises to ensure correct installation.

Extra product information

The chrome plated steering wheel rings require either a push down or lift action to accelerate the vehicle. The ring rotates when turning. The thumb operated control requires pressure and some level of precision to move a small lever to accelerate the vehicle. All devices have a bracket and electronic attachment to the steering wheel.
All models require a separate brake control. Devices do not interfere with air bag function. Can be customised to suit most makes and models of vehicles. Can be switched off to drive conventionally.
