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!

What a great product ! I just started working for the USPS as a rural carriers. Lots of things to learn, memorize, and worry about as a new employee. I purchased the steer stick, ( thank you for the extension included), and also the gas and brake set up for the passenger side of my car. All of the old timers looked at me like I was nuts. Not quite as crazy as driving your car from the middle with your left foot for brake and pedal. Now I think that is nuts. I am NO mechanic and I installed everything myself. The steer stick handles great, but definitely not for high speeds or heavy traffic.( Use your head). If you are on the fence about purchasing this product, do not be. Well worth the money and it will pay for itself in a short period of time.
Love that I don’t have to stretch way over to get all away around the steering wheel. It’s a new style of steering and needed to retrain myself a little bit but it’s much easier to manage. Putting on the extension and using two hands all the time made it even better for me. I put a golf grip on the wheel side to give my left hand a better grip.
To begin with, nothing was wrong with the SafeDrive Postal Steering Stick. It appears to be well made. I bought it along with the SafeDrive Po Plus brake/gas pedals. I could never install them properly and I will be returning them along with the SafeDrive Postal Steering Stick. Again, nothing wrong with the construction of these products.

I finally got close to my 1st days to use my RHD kit. So I settled in to install it. Was going pretty smoothly but after drilling some starter holes and making sure I had clearance to put the long screws through I used the supplied self tapping screws that ended up to easily striping out and made the cable anchors to loose and would eventually wiggle lose after a few days or weeks of use. So had to give up for the day after that. The next day I picked up new not self tapping screws so they wouldn't make the hole to big. Maybe this isn't an issue for some metals but the place I had to secure it was a fairly thin metal piece. I made new drill hole just off set to the old ones and then these screws went in a little harder but fastened down nice and tight. Besides this setback everything went pretty smooth but haven't at this time had to use it for a full shift yet. Wish me luck!!
