GuidoSimplex Duck Clutch Hand Control 942

This particular clutch hat control by GuidoSimplex, like the others, requires the use of at least one leg in order to be operated as a standalone product. Actually this isn’t exactly true, find out why, and more about the Duck Clutch 942 below.

I said above that one extremity would be required, and although this is true you may have to use another hand control or possibly even a left gas pedal retrofit depending upon your condition. Being able to use just the gas or brakes is one thing, but being able to use them in a manner which is intuitive and efficient is certainly another.

One good modification which is worth considering, to use in conjunction with this may be either an acceleration or brake only hand control. Remember that if you can use the acceleration pedal it’s certainly going to be awkward for you to switch between the two.

  • So if you could use the gas pedal, it may be worth getting a brake control which is attached to the steering wheel so you have a greater amount of control.

    I live in the US and am interested in puchasing the Duck Clutch system to self install. Is there someplace in the US or in Europe where I can purchase the system directly without installation, just parts. Thanks for any help and information you can provide. Regards, Robert Cugini

  2. I, too, am physically handicapped and I drive a manual vehicle. Where can I buy this duck hand-control and how much will it cost? I live in the Philippines but I can import things from the internet.

    • Jonathan Bell says:

      Unfortunately it’s very unlikely that this is sold in the Philippines, I would suggest contacting GuidoSimplex directly.

Got a Question? A Comment? I personally answer them all myself.
