    :Hand control

    Been building my own portable hand controls for 30 years. Made some for friends. One of them has convinced me to make them to sell. SOOO.
    Do you use one?
    What's your disability?
    How tall are you?


    Pros:
    The ones I have require no tools to put on or adjust. Adjust for length. Take 5 minutes to put on , 30 seconds to take off. Break down small enough to carry in luggage or back pack. Should cost about half of anything on the market.
    Cons:
    Butt ugly. No chrome, no fancy handles. If you want paint, diy.

                Portable as in something you take with you to use on a rental car. That's why I first started making my own. Showing up to get a rental car and they had none with hand controls on. Or the car they had was a huge 4 door, that you couldn't get your chair in.

                No tools needed to put them on or off. THere are portable hand controls that require you to carry wrenches to put them on and take off. TSA doesn't like tools in your carry on luggage.
                Safe? Define what you consider safe, please.

                  Not sure if I understand your statement. Is this how you would want a "portable" hand control the mount and operate?

                    Safe as in no bendable/flexable parts and safe as in not coming apart or lose from rough roads, potholes, heavy brakeing, etc.

                      Excellent point. I grew up in Wisconsin and Colorado. Am well aware of the abuse a vehicle takes in those places. I've used my controls to run SOLO I. So they have to be dependable.

                          I guess I missed something. What is SOLO I?

                            Can't put up pictures, because we haven't finished the patents yet.
                            And I came on here to get information to make sure they will work for a variety of people. I'm a T-6 para, and understand what I can do, but not necessarily what others require.

                            SOLO I is sports car racing.
