Driving controls and vehicle adaptations Brake, Acceleration and Pedals

Twin Flip Up Accelerator

Flip up accelerators allow you to operate the accelerator pedal with your left foot – an accelerator pedal is installed each side of the brake – but only one can be used at a time!

The Left Foot Accelerator Pedal is designed for drivers who have a vehicle with an automatic gearbox but are unable to use their right leg to operate the accelerator and brake pedals.

A second accelerator pedal is fitted to the left side of the brake. You simply push the left pedal down – this causes the right side one to fold up and out of the way. Pressing the right pedal down puts the car back to normal.

For extra safety, the pedals are connected together so that only one pedal can be used at any one time. No danger of another driver mistaking the left pedal for a clutch!

The Left Foot Accelerator Pedal is ideal for Drivers who have no or unreliable function of the right leg amd have an automatic car,

 

Benefits

Accelerator pedal can be operated by either the left or right foot depending on who is driving the car

Limits confusion
Only one pedal can be used at any one time so that there is no confusing the left pedal for a clutch pedal

Cowal – Left Foot Accelerator

Cowal developed the Twin Flip-Up left foot accelerator concept over 30 years ago, and it remains one of the best solutions for drivers who cannot operate the accelerator pedal in an automatic vehicle.

The operation is simplicity itself. Pull down the pedal required, and the other pedal flips up automatically. Cowal use a snap hinge so there is no fear of the flipped-up pedal flopping down or being accidentally knocked down.

Suitable for all automatic vehicles with conventional accelerator pedals, including electronic, organ and plastic pedals.

No holes are drilled into the floor of your car, and the Pedal pad on left side pedal can be made to match original pedal if required
