It’s not uncommon for people to struggle to pull on a handbrake. This can be due to disabilities or weakness in the hands, arms, elbows, shoulder, etc. With an electric handbrake we disable the standard handbrake and replace it with a simple to use On and Off switch on the dashboard.
An Electric Handbrake puts on and releases the handbrake using an electric motor. So, instead of the driver having to push in the detent button and then pull the lever up, all that’s required is to flick a switch.
The switch can be placed in the most convenient position for the driver, either where the traditional Hand brake was located or on the dash.
Meets the Department of Transport ‘Construction and Use’ regulations.
