This is generally used in conjunction with hand controls or a left gas pedal, and it’s designed as a safeguard. Interference with the pedal which is being used by a hand control can have deadly consequences.
This requires a permanent installation of a metal floor plate which is bolted to the floor of the vehicle. It actually comes as part of the left foot gas pedal, just without the left foot pedal – and so it’s almost identical.
One useful aspect of this device is that pedal utilizes a quick release mechanism which makes it removal very easy. But this doesn’t mean you’re removing the floor plate, just the action part of the model which stops engagement of the acceleration pedal.
It’s similar in a sense to semi-permanent hand controls which have action parts which can be removed to allow for a non-disabled driver, whilst retaining certain pieces of disabled driving equipment to which the action parts are reattached too.
The MPS Accelerator Guard is recommend by Driving Evaluators to guard against inadvertent contact with the vehicle accelerator pedal. The superior design Quick Release function makes removal for able bodied persons easy!
