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!

Easy install, However the screws on the mount itself need to be a lil longer. Had to use locking pliers to squeeze the mount while threading the screws
I love the steering stick. I love that it is quick to remove the stick and that the holder on the steering wheel is not in the way when driving on the left side.
Makes steering a breeze from RHS! No more leaning over to steer....combined with the RHS brake and gas petal, you can have a RHS conversion for under $1000! This has saved me precious time on the route. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND GETTING BOTH. AND,it was a breeze to install. It only took me 5 minutes!
I also highly recommend practicing with the steering stick before going out on your route. It does take some getting used to, but once you get it, it's super easy.
I had been thinking about this for a year and finally did it, I installed right hand side controls for my factory left side control rural postal delivery vehicle. It has relieved the pain and soreness in my left shoulder and elbow from reaching across to control the vehicle during the route and has made the making turns easier and safer. Combined with a brake and accelerator pedal kit from a different vendor, I now can fully sit in the factory seat relieving all sorts of discomfort in ankles, knees, hips and back and the stress of a day on the road. I also feel safer in the vehicle as I can now use the seat belt and should strap. Super easy to install on the steering wheel with included allen wrench and the shaft connects and disconnects in just a second.
Works great. I sit comfortably in the passenger seat. I steer with one hand. Two hands when I make a turn.
