Default Re: Shorter Parking Brake Cable for 144

I am in the midst of installation with the seat removed so I took these pictures of the folding lever. See 2 up and down positions.

When I installed the Sportscraft swivelís handbrake lowering bracket I didnít change the brake release cable so I assume this folding lever will not require a new cable.

I hope to finish this installation this weekend.

I'm trying to see how it works, can't imagine it yet in my head. I'll have all the parts by mid week next week.

It works like your normal handle but when the brake is locked ( in handle up position) you can push it down to swivel.

Allows you to get up on ramps to level van and still keep brake locked. Then swivel your chair.

You simply pull back up to engage and then press button and push down again to release the brake.

I had to go to the shorter cable. The longer cable would just shove grommet out of the floor.

If u need pic installed I can find one.

I'm pretty certain mine shoved the grommet out too, but I haven't felt like lying in the snow to check. Seems like many have gone with the lowered bracket and managed to get the cable to slide through though. Since the handle is pointed down with the new bracket A - I find it less in the way when I move about without the brake engaged, and B - I'm pretty sure you can still swivel with the brake engaged. This was the bracket from Alpine Mechanisms.

I have a lower seat base. That's part of the issue too. It's much lower than the lowering bracket. Forgot to mention that.

With the brake up the handle is in the way and there's no way it will swivel. That being said I don't have the same setup as you. Maybe it works with stock base and alpine swivel.
