At NEW ABILITY, installing Left Foot Gas Pedals and Hand Driving Controls are my favorite things to do. They will fit into almost every vehicle, and they will allow you to get out on your own, to drive where you want to go, independently. Installations can be done in just a few hours, by appointment. Call ahead so that I can be sure to have the correct brackets for your vehicle.
Left Foot Gas Pedal: For easy engagement of gas and brake function using left foot. It will push the original pedal when you push the left one.
A Pedal Guard blocks the original pedal so it won’t be pressed unintentionally. Safety First!
The Left Foot Gas Pedal assembly has a Quick Release Feature and can be removed in 6 seconds, leaving only the mounting plate on the floor. It is out of the way for all other drivers.
NOTE: It must be removed for all other drivers, ALWAYS! This will fit into any vehicle. Allow 2 to 3 hours for installation, by appointment.
Gas and Brake Driving Controls: this is the MPS Monarch, Left hand 90° control, it is the most common and easiest to operate, mounts to the steering column, handle is below turn signal lever. Push forward for brakes, down to accelerate, a 90° difference. All other drivers just use pedals.
See DETAILS page about knee bolster airbags in the dash.
Hand Driving Controls Fit into new and used vehicles. There is a Lock-Out-Lever to prevent another driver from unintentionally pushing the accelerator handle. Allow 4 to 5 hours for installation, by appointment.
See DETAILS page about knee bolster air bags in the dash.
Gas and Brake Driving Control: Left Hand Sure-Grip, Push-Rock style. Push forward for the brake, Rock handle toward yourself to accelerate. Lock-Out Lever included. A Spinner Knob and Pedal Guard are also shown. All other drivers use pedals only. Allow 4 to 5 hours for installation by appointment. See DETAILS page about knee bolster airbags in the dash.
Veigel Compact II Right Hand driving control, floor-mounted (instead of column-mounted), push-pull style, forward for brake, back for gas. When stopped, button on handle can lock brake “on” to allow the right hand to change gears or adjust dash functions. Tap handle to release. All other drivers use pedals only. Allow 6 hours for installation by appointment.
Steering Devices: This is an MPS Round Spinner Knob. Steer all the way around the wheel without letting go. One-handed steering. The base stays on the wheel, and the knob is removable, out of the way for other drivers. Other handle styles are available: single post, vertical “V” grip, flat palm grip, hook receiver, and tri-pin, all removable from the base. Spinner knobs are recommended for use with all hand driving controls.
Also available: Turn Signal Extensions to reach near spinner knob, or drop down to near hand control; Park Brake Handle extensions; Gear Shift button levers; Gas & Brake Pedal Extensions to reach pedals; Wide-Angle Mirrors, external or windshield mount; and always, transferring your equipment to be installed in a different vehicle.
NOTES: All other drivers must use pedals, not hand controls to drive conventionally. Spinner knobs and left pedal assemblies and pedals guards must be removed for all other drivers. Driver training is a must for all first-time adaptive equipment drivers and we can provide contacts for that. Hand controls need maintenance at least once per year. All services and sales are by appointment.
