The one thing which really makes this unique is that it can be immediately taken off or attached as is necessary. You’ll find that the vast majority, perhaps around 4/5ths of other steering knobs do not have this function. It may not seem like a big improvement to you, but if the car is being shared by multiple people and the hand controls you’ve chosen are specifically those which can be quickly removed or ignored for usual driving then it means a big deal.
Purely from an aesthetical point of view it’s designed to fit into the feel and interior of most cars. The faux leather and dark color allows it to fit non-intrusively onto almost all steering wheels.
It has a simple but effective bracket and clamp system which allows it fit all driving wheels, but most importantly allows it to be secured into position. Don’t think for one second that you’re compromising safety, because this is just as safe as permanent installations.
Also, remember that this flexibility allows the perfect position placement for you anywhere on the wheel – even if you want it fitted to face backwards. Although this isn’t going to be the first option for a lot of people, some people do prefer to have it face backwards because they find it more comfortable.
This kind of handicapped steering equipment allows for the disabled person to be able to turn the driving wheel with just one hand to 360 degrees.
The downsides of using hand controls mean that you generally only have one hand for driving which limits your ability to be able to turn the wheel itself. Having a steering knob alleviates this problem quite substantially.
