Thread: Golf cart hand controls?

    Golf cart hand controls?

    Can I use regular portable handcontrols for a golf cart. I think I would have to just push the parking break in with my hand. Any other suggestions that era less expensive?

    A putter works pretty good for hand controls on a golf cart.

    Do I duct tape ti on? I am on a HUGE hill-so breaking is ginna be tough. It is not actually for golfing, but a summer camp.

    I use a threaded rod with a hurst shifter handle on top and a piece on the bottom that has a clamp that clamps to foot pedal. I am on level so don't worry about brakes.

    I saw some sure-grips for Golf Carts and UTVs on SportAid's wedsite.

    No duct tape you have to switch between gas and brakes… I have only done it messin around on the golf course so no huge hills but it never felt un-safe. I tried some of the other clubs and they bend too much when pressing the brakes. The putter is stiffer.

    Agreed. I just use a golf club.
    Golf carts have electric motors so if you take your foot of the gas, it'll slow down really quickly. It's not like a car.

    Any questions? Ask me or send me a message because I've spent a lot of time researching about hand controls.
    Hi there, I'm only 20 years old but I'm creating my own disabled driving organization - it's growing rapidly everyday and currently features hundreds of pages of useful content you can't find elsewhere.

    Visit my hand controls website for more information.

    Or you can visit my website's blog where I outline what's happening and my plans for the future.
