I have been using Sure Grip Hand Controls since 1992. One big benefit I have found with the new FeatherLite Hand Controls is that it is much easier to get into the driving position. With having long legs and using a Valet Plus Seat to transfer into the van, I have found it difficult in the past to clear my right leg past the gas rod. With the new FeatherLite Hand Controls, there is no gas rod to impede my transfer. Also, with the ability to set the tension on the gas, you have a more personalized hand control and driving experience. I can see how this will help people with arm pain or arm weakness as well. This will help a lot of people in the future

Motor Cycle Style Accelerator

What was once the most fatiguing style of driving is now available to virtually all disabilities. NO gas rods, NO resistance has redefined who can operate this style of hand control.

The Sure Grip Push/Twist control uses the same motorcycle style acceleration as other Push/Twist controls but has an auxiliary handle that makes the twisting motion easier and allows for longer, more comfortable driving.

In addition to the unique benefits enjoyed with our other hand controls, such as increased legroom and ease of use, drivers will also appreciate the other features that the Sure Grip Push/Twist offers including:

This is a motorcycle style hand control that you push to brake and twist like a motorbike throttle for acceleration.

  • Increased leg and lap room

    • The Sure Grip short stroke design means that only the handle of the control moves while applying throttle. This guarantees you can achieve full acceleration without the control impeding the driver's lap.

  • Greater two-handed contact with the steering wheel

    •  Due to the shortened stroke of the handle, the driver’s hand is never too far away from the steering wheel, allowing for two hand driving.

  • Limited modifications to the vehicle's dash

    • The stationary brake rod, during acceleration, on Sure Grips Push Right Angle hand controls limits the number of dash modifications required during installation.

  • Lock-Out Feature

    • All Sure Grip’s traditional hand controls come standard with a lockout mechanism. The lockout is an added safety feature for the driver or those that share the vehicle. By simply sliding a lever, the accelerator function of the hand control can be disabled. This helps prevent accidents through misuse of the control by mechanics, valets or any other unqualified user


In addition to the benefits enjoyed as a result of the stationary main body, drivers will also appreciate the other features that Sure Grip’s Push Right/Angle offers including:

  • Superior pedal feel, with constant acceleration and no “dead spots”

  • Lower fatigue while driving


Q: Is my vehicle compatible with the Sure Grip Traditional hand controls?

A: Sure Grip traditional hand controls are compatible with every vehicle that is on the road. We have never turned a vehicle away.

Q: Can they be transferred from one vehicle to another?

A: Yes. However, while the control itself is universal, differences in vehicles may require you to purchase replacement parts in order to transfer them.
