    I have just installed what they call push pat controls into my ute I am a C5C6 .
    you push them forward towards the dash to break and pushed them down towards the floor to accelerate.
    They are a fixed unit on to the steering column and do not have to be removed for able-bodied people to use the normal foot pedals

    We have the Sure Grip push to brake, and pull down to throttle controls in our 4wd camping van and have heard really good things about them.

    I tried some SureGrips on a test vehicle. They were okay but as a quad, it required using my weaker hand on the controls and my good hand on the steering wheel. I found that city driving would tire my left hand quickly.

    Good luck in whichever one you choose.

    is a video of the first time I have used my hand controls it was a very dodgy set up to start with but I have now changed a few things
    I was too eager to just try it although now that I have got correct parts it will be totally easier

    I think I am using the same type and same brand of handcontrol as you, but my car driving seat is on the right hand side, so it is installed in the other way round. I feel that this type of hand control is not very smooth, and too many parts and complicated to install.
