The extension provides greater leverage and a much larger handle which makes turning the key much easier. Instead of having to use your fingers to grasp a tiny key you can fit your hand around a much larger handle.
This handle is much easier to turn and is linked in a way which creates greater leverage and reduces the effort required for turning the handle in the first place.
People with arthritis may have trouble grasping something as small as a key, or perhaps the driver has had a stroke and the right side of his body is very weak and he drives with his legs and one hand – in both of these cases the extension is very useful.
It’s worth pointing out that this device can be used anywhere that uses a key, not just your vehicle – the front door on your house could utilize this device.
The device is adjustable and you can angle it in a way which suits your preferences, and it doesn’t require any intrusive or irreversible installations so you don’t have to worry about reduced car value or anything of the sort. If anything this will increase the value of your vehicle… to the right buyer of course!
