Pedal Adaptions

Pedal Guards

Pedal guards are always used alongside hand controls. Their primary purpose is to prevent the brake and/or accelerator being accidentally pressed or a foot sliding under them.

Some people can suffer from involuntary leg movements and spasms when driving. This can be dangerous with feet accidentally hitting the brake or accelerator or, getting stuck behind one of the pedals. Pedal guards are available as single or double pedal size and have a quick release system to allow you to drive using the foot controls.

Single pedal guards are often fitted alongside hinged accelerators which have the same primary purpose as pedal guards but allow you to stretch your right leg out.

Pedal Extension

Pedal Extensions

Text to be added shortly.

Standard Pedal Extension

Pedal Extensions With A Raised floor

This adaptation works on the same principal as our standard pedal extensions with  some additional engineering; namely raising the vehicle floor. If the pedals need extending  by more than 4 inches it is a  sign that the driver’s feet do not reach the floor of the vehicle.

We can extend single pedals, 2 pedals or all 3 if needed.

Pedal extensions usually have a quick release mechanism which means that the vehicle can be driven in the conventional manner.

Removable Pedals

Removing the pedals is now regarded as a traditional ‘Old School’ adaptation because it has given way to hinged pedals and pedal guards. It is mostly required when the driver is using hand controls to operate the accelerator and/or brake pedals and they want to benefit from some extra leg room to stretch. Either pedal can then be removed and in doing so the risk of accidentally pressing the brake or accelerator is removed too.

The pedals are usually held in place with a quick release mechanism so that conventional driving is still an option.

Hinged Pedals

We fit many hinged accelerators and hinged brake pedals.

Hinged pedals are usually required when the driver is using hand controls to operate the accelerator pedal. The accelerator can be flipped up out of the way, giving the driver the option of stretching their right leg out and of course preventing any accidental pressing of the pedal.

Hinged pedals can be flipped down easily for conventional driving.

Hinged accelerators are often used alongside brake guards when driving with hand controls.

Left foot accelerator

Left Foot Acclerators

Electronic Left Foot Accelerators

These are ideal for people with limited use of their right leg because they provide a very simple solution, allowing the driver to operate both the accelerator and the brake with their left foot.

Very similar to the floor mounted left foot accelerator it can be fitted to all fly by wire organ style accelerator pedals. The system links a new electronic accelerator pedal to the left hand side of the brake pedal. It’s cleverly wired in so that you can switch either accelerator and so can drive left or right footed depending on your requirements.

Because you only use one pedal on at a time, you can rest your other foot on the opposite pedal.

Foot Mounted Left Foot Accelerator

Floor Mounted Left Foot Accelerator

Left foot accelerators provide a simple solution for those with a limited use of their right leg because they enable both the accelerator and the brake to be operated with the left foot.

Very similar to the flip up system, the floor mounted left foot accelerator can be fitted to all ‘organ style’ accelerator pedals. The system links a new accelerator pedal to the left hand side of the brake pedal which in turn pushes the existing accelerator with a roller, giving a smooth and progressive throttle response. The existing accelerator pedal is in turn protected by a pedal guard so that it can’t be accidentally pressed with the right foot.

The whole system works on a quick release mechanism so that it can be used by someone wanting to drive in the conventional way.

Left Foot Flip Up Acclerator

Left foot flip up accelerator

Ideal for people with limited use of their right leg, left foot accelerators provide a very simple solution by allowing you to operate both accelerator and brake with your left foot.

The two pedals are hinged and interlinked making it very easy to flip down either throttle whilst the other tucks up out of the way. Allowing the pedals to be operated either right footed or left depending on the driver.

Probably our second most commonly fitted adaptation. Left foot accelerators will fit all automatic vehicles except organ style pedals.
