Re: Time For a Parking Brake!

Another vote for Spring Brake Thingy. Very functional design.

Re: Time For a Parking Brake!

Definitely invest in a parking brake. I make and sell a nice unit, easy install, two settings, accessible with the harness on, releases with a push of the brake, lockable.
Just get one that works, and use it always...even if it's not mine.

Re: Time For a Parking Brake!

Although I started this as a Parking Brake thread, I thought I would give an update on the final outcome. Total loss, everything finally settled with Allstate last month (accessories removed and retained). I was not in a hurry and waiting on the Spring Sale and possible Rebate increase. Glad I waited, it saved me about $1,000 over February pricing.

This past weekend I picked up a new 2019 XPT Titanium Metallic. Very pleased with some of the changes made. Not pleased that my SATV Flip windshield will not fit, not a big deal. Salvaged accessories are now being put on my new one. So far, straightened roof, rear shield, lower doors, door bags, vendetta rocker guards (straightened) and cooler/tool box mounted. Next, I will move on to electrical. And of course a parking brake before our next Windrock trip in July!

Out of all the ones I looked at, I liked this one the best. Easy to engage and well designed. https://extrememetalproducts.com/i-2...-saver-ii.html

Most are quite easy. Two bolts and a adjustable jam nut. The cable or hydraulic ones are something for the mechanical whiz kids.

Yes, it works real good, I like it because there isn't any bending over or fiddling with your feet to engage it. I don't know if you saw the video or not, if not here it is.

Now we're talking. The redneck parking brake. I like that idea.

I really want to say thanks for this! I grabbed a scrap piece of curved aluminum and stuck it in there. Works perfectly!
