Sure Grip Push Rock Hand Controls

Sure Grip’s push/rock controls are well-known for having the easiest gas in the industry. This allows for hours of fatigue-free driving. The push/rock style makes the driving experience you have been longing for possible. Sure Grip hand control designs prevent contact with legs or knees at higher speeds. The upright handle also allows for installation in smaller vehicles or tight spaces. Controls do not impede pedal use.

Sure Grip Push Right Angle

Unlike other push / right angle controls, the Sure Grip push right angle’s body doesn’t pivot or move when the accelerator is applied. The pivot point for the Sure Grip hand control is on the left side of the wheel, and only the handle pivots.

A stationary main body has many benefits for the driver, including:

  • Increased leg room for getting in and out of the vehicle – many allow the brake rod to pass through the dash
  • Full acceleration without the control hitting the drivers lap
  • Greater two-handed contact with the steering wheel due to the shortened stroke of the handle
Push Pull Hand Controls

Sure Grip Push Pull

The Sure Grip Push/Pull hand control utilizes a short stroke design for easy acceleration.

The hand controls the main body, and brake rod is stationary when the accelerator is applied.

The pivot point for the push pull control is on the left-hand side of the wheel, and only the handle moves. This stationary main body and brake rod improves leg and lap room requires fewer dash modifications during install and provides a very easy drive.

To operate simply push towards the dash for brake and pull directly back towards you for acceleration.

Sure Grip Push Twist Hand Controls

The Sure Grip push/twist hand control uses the same motorcycle style acceleration as other push/twist controls. But, it has an auxiliary handle. This makes the motion easier. It also allows for longer, more comfortable driving.

Our hand controls come with unique benefits, such as increased leg room and ease of use. Drivers will also appreciate other features that the Sure Grip push/twist offers, including:

  • Superior pedal feel, with constant acceleration and no “dead spots”
  • Lower fatigue while driving
  • Limited modifications to the vehicle’s dash
  • Easier braking
