The Freedom Staff Portable Handicap Driving Tools is an adaptive driving control device that is helpful for people who cannot use their legs to control the brake and gas pedals of a car.

The control handles allow the user to accelerate by gently pulling the lever toward them, and to brake by gently pushing the lever toward the floor. The long lever handles are easy to install using the included strap that slides over the steering column to stabilize the controls in position. The revolutionary design allows the user to easily handle the steering wheel with one hand while operating the hand control device with the other hand.

I love these hand tools, they have push pull that no other portable hand tool offers, they work as well as my permanently installed hand controls, I am going to be buying a new car soon and I am going to use these as my permanent hand tools as there is little difference in functionality and a huge difference in cost and I do not have to alter my automobile and can use them in multiple cars. I brought them with me on vacation and used them in the rental car, they were easy to change over and worked like a charm. I recommend these over the many I have used in the past. The problem with most portable hand tools is they fatigue your thumb/hand because of the pressure using the gas with your thumb, the push pull system eliminates this hand fatigue from repetitive thumb pressure. I've been using the Freedom Staff Portable Handicap Driving Tool in my truck for over 9 years, they are very comfortable and easy to use as I transfer them from one vehicle to the other and it takes less than 20 minutes between two vehicles.

I need to break down and purchase 2 more sets so I don't have to keep changing them, although I have 2 sets of permanent hand controls hanging in my shed from my previous vehicles there's no loosening bolts on the steering columns or pulling out the tools. The Freedom Staff Portable Hand Controls are the best adjustable driving tool I've encountered in my 22 years of being handicapped, Thank you for comfort and freedom to be independent.
