No more blown-out left shoulders from having to reach over to grab the wheel all day! Introducing the SafeDrive Postal Steering Stick, a design based on feedback from dozens of mail carriers. A simple to use and effective way to steer the car from the passenger's side, commonly known as RHD or Right Hand Drive. You can even make complete left and right turns, just don't forget to hand signal!
Our new model is improved with a much easier way to connect and disconnect from the steering wheel. With the simple push of a button, the stick disconnects from the attach point on the steering wheel and pops right back on when needed. The ball handle makes a convenient grip and the flexible hinge-joint allows you to position your passengers seat forward or backward for greatest driving comfort. It is made with lightweight aluminum alloy to minimize fatigue during a long day.
The system comes complete with full-color instructions, the 22 inch long steering stick, a 9 inch extension (if you prefer to drive with your right hand or have a wide cab), the steering wheel clamp attachment, two sets of screws for various thicknesses of steering wheels, rubber spacers for added grip, and an allen wrench. There's nothing else you need for installation. Just put the attachment on the lower part of your steering wheel, tighten the two screws with the allen wrench, pop on the stick and you're good to go.
After training for a short time (it took us about 15 minutes), you could easily drive the car from mailbox to mailbox. Turns do take a little more practice to get used to and using two hands on the stick was the trick. We sure had fun watching the reaction on people's faces as we drove by!

SafeDrive Postal Steering Stick
It works, but it does pop out on its own, on occasion. Almost busted my mirror and my windshield a few times.
I think the postal steering stick is a great option for those of us that are to short to reach the wheel when turning. It took a little practice, but I am now more comfortable using it. I still use both hands when turning in a circle but that ok. The placement on the steering wheel is also key to having a comfortable trip, so try in different positions. This has saved me from having to move my steering wheel over which in turn saved me money. I'm very happy I purchased this item.
Received the steering stick.
Installed easily in minutes.
Trial and error.
We found 12 o'clock is best for our needs where left push is left steer.
Tried at 6 o'clock. For a flatter angle across buy left is right and right is left can create a little confusion.
Great customer service and qaulity units.
So far I like it. It don't work quite as well if you can't get it in the center of steering wheel. My crv won't allow that. But me element does. It works much better on the element.
