Steering Wheel Knobs – Handicap Spinner Knobs
Quick Release Steering Wheel Knob – This type of steering wheel attachment is by far the most popular and around 90% of sales are directly related to removable spinner knobs. These are perfect for one handed turning of the car and making turning the steering wheel significantly easier. I would list this product as a necessity, especially when used with hand controls. Steering knobs are incredibly cheap and be delivered to your home in a few days.
Tri-Pin Steering Grips
Tri-Pin Grips – The second best. The Tri-Pin steering device features two ‘single-pin’ handle extensions which extrude out from the steering wheel. These cushion and support your wrist – plus they allow for extra leverage when turning the wheel. The final third pin is the one which you grasp with your hand. If you’re not a fan of knobs then the Tri-Pin attachment device is recommended as a suitable replacement.

Single-Pin Steering Grips
Single Pin Grips – Occasionally used but not very popular when compared to the Tri-Pin grips. Essentially the single pin steering grip is a single handle which extends vertically out from the steering wheel and is used for easier steering. It’s slightly cheaper in price than the T-P grip but frankly it’s quite inferior in terms of stability and support.
Palm Spinner – Designed for people with poor hand strength and grasping problems. The palm spinner is useful for drivers who arthritis (usually rheumatoid arthrisi) or a muscle impairing disability. It allows control of the wheel via strength in the arm and palm as opposed to the fingers. The metal encasing around the hand is malleable and can be molded to fit one’s hand for superior strength.
Amputee Spinner – Designed for amputee driver’s with an amputee hook attachments. A simple but effective device which allows the hook of the prosthetic amputee hand hook to connect to the amputee spinner ring.
