Many drivers who can only use their left leg and foot take advantage of portable left foot accelerators (sometimes referred to as left foot gas pedals) to allow for significantly easier driving. Drivers sometimes use handicap hand controls in conjunction with their portable left foot accelerators. The QR PLFA is frequently used by drivers who suffer from multiple sclerosis, strokes or other injuries which render the right foot inadequate for safe driving.
Each package arrives with both the top quick-release left foot accelerator, its base plate (shown in a picture above), screw bolts (for installation) and an instruction manual.
The base plate can be installed very easily, however an electric screwdriver is recommended. Installation requires correct positioning of the base plate (as per the manual) in front of the pedals. Once in position it’s worth attaching the top part of the left foot accelerator to make sure it’s positioned correctly. When the base plate is in the optimal position you can remove the top left foot accelerator device and proceed to use an electric screwdriver to install the base plate. Attaching the top section of the left foot accelerator (with the left foot gas pedal) is very easy and it simply slides into position. Please do consults your state/country’s laws regarding installation of this type of equipment.
If you are concerned about installation, the manual provided is suitable for showing to professional mechanics who can ensure its proper installation – however anyone with basic tool skills will be proficient. Please consult the manual before installation.
Whether you’re looking for a long-term or just a temporary left foot gas pedal this product may well be for you. There are a few unique aspects to the QR PLFA that make it worth considering. Firstly, it’s both designed and constructed in the UK ensuring a very high quality standard. Secondly, its quick-release function makes it very useful for changing between left footed driving and regular driving. When completely removing the PLFA (including the base plate) unscrewing to bolt screws is all that must be done and damage to the car is almost unobservable. This is especially true if you put a floor mat over the screw holes.
