Sure Grip Hand Controls and Driving Aids

Sure Grip introduced the “push rock” control (forward for brake, back for accelerator), and now has been endorsed by the National Equipment Mobility Dealers Association. Sure Grip controls don’t require a lot of hand or arm strength.

There are multiple configurations and styles, for both right hands and left. See their website for all their full line of products.

SureGrip offers manual or electric AutoLock, which locks out the accelerator function of your hand control; this will prevent the use of your hand control by untrained or unwanted users.
