Knee Intrusion Air-bag Compatible Hand Controls
Previously, vehicle modifiers have been unable to install hand controls into vehicles with a Knee Intrusion Airbag. This is because it is necessary for the hand controls to run below the dash, and right across the air-bag, making them a hazard should the air-bag deploy.
Electronic Accelerators such as the Accelerator Rings and Electronic Radial do not have this problem as the mechanical brake bar can be routed around the airbag. This is the preferred option as all safety systems are maintained.
However, for the case where electronic controls are not preferable, the Knee Intrusion Air-bag Compatible Hand Controls system features a removable connecting rod that temporarily disables the Knee Intrusion Air-bag ONLY while installed. This rod is removed with 30 seconds when an able-bodied driver takes the wheel and the Knee Intrusion Air-bag is re-enabled.
