    Yes on the portable hand controls. I have used them for years and installed them myself. No special hardware needed. They install in any car. Great way to go. You can always take them with you to install in a rental car when traveling. They break down into a travel bag the size of a loaf of bread. I bought mine new on Ebay for around $275.

    Regarding "where to purchase vehicle hand controls w/ no script needed" -
    the Veigel and MPD brands can be purchased here with no prescription.
    Regarding installation; however, please note that in this case you would need to sign a disclaimer if a factory-trained (i.e., trained by Veigel / MPD) installer does not perform the installation.

    I'm not seeing any listings on that website on hand controls.

    I'd be worried about insurance and liability too.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    The portable ones will take an bodied person 10 minutes to install. If you aren't confident in your mechanical abilities have someone else install them. Just turn the knobs with your hands to fasten clamps onto the peddles. Then secure the assembly to the steering column with a velcro strap. There are no tools required.

    I got some monarch ones of ebay and put them in 3 different vehicles myself. Its not real hard. If you are unable to do it by yourself get a friend to help. It will save you a ton of money.

    I tried buying a bracket for a set of suregrips I found on Craigslist but the manufacturer didn?t even bother to reply to my email. I knew I wouldn?t be able to buy a new set of controls so I didn?t bother asking. I didn?t think I?d have the same problem with a mounting bracket. In the end, I fabricated my own. Just about anything that?s related to wheelchair accessible vehicles is tightly controlled. They won?t sell to the end user. It?s been over a year now and I still haven?t found a good used kneeling actuator to install myself. eBay and Craigslist are your best options. Just be patient.
