It looks pretty good Frank! When you release the handbrake how far does it lay down? And I do see room for some more holes...

You know, I can pull my ebrake up maybe 3 - 4 clicks - That’s the extent of it’s travel.  In order to release it, the trick is to pull up slightly, then push the release button and let it down.  No big deal and it never fails to work right.

The guy who does my car inspection every year has never gotten the hang of that and invariably tries and tries until he finds me to tell me he may have to reject the car because the ebrake won’t release.   So I reach in over the door, gently but firmly pull straight up on the handle push the button and release it.  He always looks chagrinned.

So the moral of this tale is this:  If I had an ebrake handle full of holes like you guys are showing, when I got my car back from “Mr. Inspector” the ebrake handle would look like a hockey stick and “Mr. Handbrake killer” would look even more chagrinned, especially after I ding him for a new handle.

I'm unsure of how far down it goes, I do know to set it, it has to nearly touch the shifter. Some adjustment is probably in order.


I am partial to the handbrake Seduction made, I'm guessing not likely I'll locate one of those.

There definitely is room to add lightness to the handbrake
