Kobran Motorhome Handbrake Extender

We are the UK Distributor for the Kobran Handbrake extenders, Bulk / Trade Enquiries are welcomed.

Watch the Kobran Motorhome Handbrake extender being fitted in less than 1 minute below in our video.

Please note that the handbrake extender was origially designed to fit up to 2006 models on a Fiat Ducato/Peugeot Boxer/Citroen Relay chassis, however it is possible to fit to later vehicles with some modifications. It also fits other vehicles, see the table below

 

Motorhome Handbrake Extension

Sick of having to undo your seatbelt and lean right over and down to access the handbrake on your motorhome ?

Our handy easy to use Kobran handbrake extender solves this frustrating motorhome design flaw.

Handbrake extender dimensions

Our motorhome handbrake extension fits all Pre 2007 Fiat Ducatos, Peugeot and Citroen with no issues and some Ford Transit 1993's.

Usually the handbrake extender fits ok albeit very snugly on new vans due to the slightly bulbous rubber grip on these vehicles. On pre 2007 vans it fits perfectly. See the testimonial / reviews we have

Mercedes Sprinter ALL Does Not Fit   NO  

 (NOTE: This does not fit Mercedes Sprinter based vehicles )

The design is such that it should fit most vans, campervans and motorhomes, although we do know that Newer Ford Transits are not suited to our handbrake extender The Kobran handbrake extender can be used on RHD or LHD motorhomes (The retaining screws simply need to be unscrewed and turned around to ensure the silver washer type screw head is facing outwards).

These motorhome handbrake extenders are constructed of tough Polyamid 66 with 30% glass fibre.

5 years warranty on our handbrake extender for motorhomes.

Motorhome Handbrake Extender fitted

With this handbrake extender attached the grip level will be 130mm higher.

The Kobran handbrake extender works like a sleeve fitting over the existing handbrake handle, the dimensions of the sleeve diameter are cylindrical with the largest dimension being the vertical diameter of approx 35mm and the shortest dimension of the cylinder being 30mm in the horizontal.

These dimensions are slightly flexible due to the clamping arrangement of the 3 captive screw head retainers which when screwed tight using a simple cross head screwdriver then clamp the handbrake extender to the handbrake handle.

GILL STALLARD - Tuesday 24 October, 2017

Excellent product, used since 2009 without a problem until May this year when I was stopped at traffic lights (in the rush hour) and was unable to release the handbrake. Partner (engineer) was fortunately able to help before total chaos ensued from the long queue of annoyed drivers ! Seems the screws holding the Kobran in place had loosened and slid the handle back, thus making the release lever ineffective ! We now have 'Check Kobran' added to our checklist of things to do before setting off on trips. Apart from this one incident, we (especially me as the main driver) are totally satisfied we everything we have bought from Outdoor Bits.


Michael Rowe - Sunday 24 September, 2017

I would just like to say that the ordered item arrived quickly(Handbrake extender ) and is fitted to my Peugeot NuEvo and makes driving a lot easier , thanks for a prompt and efficient service, I will certainly put you in my favourites box and recommend you to other people I know with campers


colin tuffs - Thursday 15 December, 2016

bought august 2015
well worth cost to ensure not straining to reach handbrake
have modified it by making two inserts from hardwood offcuts now more confortable
advise checking screws tight as can turn if loose

Excellent service great product does exactly what it say's on the tin!
Fitted in 2 mins works a treat...
Thank you Outdoor Bits...


Michael Edgecumbe - Wednesday 17 August, 2016

Easy to fit and works well. It is very expensive for a piece of plastic and three screws.


James Gordon - Sunday 10 July, 2016

Best thing i ever bought for my Motorhome saw a mate had one so i asked him where he got it,he told me so i ordered one next day, had it the following day.
Brilliant service, delivery, brilliant item . 100% satisfied .

Gerhard Kellner - Friday 20 May, 2016

A great thing I appreciate very much. Very easy to mount. Minor problem - the screws are far to long.
It would be great to get a shipment reference number.


stuart may - Tuesday 17 May, 2016

I have a 2001 VW T4 and was hoping this extender would fit as I've heard they need a bit of fettling for VW's. They are mainly for Fiat Ducato type vehicles, but when it arrived I thought it would fit straight on and it did. didn't have to use any different bolts to make it fit. So win win situation. Brilliantly simple idea, works well!!!


Ron Sims - Thursday 10 March, 2016

Easy to fit and makes a big difference to using the handbrake on my MOHO


Martin Moth - Saturday 19 December, 2015

Excellent quality. On my 2010 Ducato the handbrake is quite fat sho I need to get some longer bolts although it fits so tightly I would probably get away with it. For safety I will actually get some nice shiny bolts though.as I said, nicely made and feels rugged.


James Worden - Friday 04 December, 2015

This handbrake extender is a real must for those people who like me have short arms.
If your vehicle is a right hand drive then you have to unscrew the 3 screws and take out the end screws and insert them the other way round so you can tighten them from the drivers door side.
I own a Peugeot Boxer van 1999 and followed the instructions as per video. The main problem fitting this extender was when I tightened the 3 screws tightly, when I applied the handbrake, the extender slid off the handbrake, so I used the smaller screws as directed for my vehicle but the extender still slipped off when the handbrake was applied.
The only way to stop the extender sliding off was to take out the screws and reinstate same with small nuts and bolts which tightened the extender to the handbrake without it sliding off when used.
The extender now works very well but I think that the manufacturer should use a better system to tighten the extender to the handbrake.


Andrew Walden - Wednesday 02 September, 2015

Was I pleased to receive the handbrake extender today! It has to be adapted for RHD vehicles but that was very simple and took less than 5 minutes, fitting took less than that!

I can now release and apply the handbrake without straining or thinking I am doing a workout in the gym. What a simple but excellent bit of kit.


colin tuffs - Saturday 08 August, 2015

item arrived within three days
only one spare screw in packet but no problem to replace
took all of ten minutes to fit
really does solve a major problem on my fiat ducato
im looking out for a fiat owner with five foot arms !!!!!!!!
think it could be a tad cheaper
have recommended it to timberland motorhomes club
will definitely seek other items from this site


Brian Woodham - Saturday 01 August, 2015

As I am a bit on the short side body wise, I find that the worst object that I come across is using the handbrake on most motorhomes, as the floor pan on most is raised to give an even floor, resulting handbrake lower down.
A friend mentioned to me ,look on Outdoor Bits, low and behold I came across the Handbrake Extender, I have installed it very easily on a Fiat Motorhome and it is very easy to install, the best part is that I don't have to reach down so far over the side of the drivers seat to operate the handbrake.

One of the best thinks for me, to make driving easier.

Many thanks, for a speedy delivery and full instructions.

Brian Woodham.


colin ferrier - Monday 06 July, 2015

Instructions suggest that fixing screw assembly is reversed to enable tightening of the assembly on the vehicle handbrake mechanism of a RHD vehicle.
The plastic injection moulding however is not hard enough to accommodate the splines of the reversed anchor nuts, hence the extender cannot be tightened on the hanbrake lever.
The existing hardware should be discarded and three new screws (M4 x 20mm) together with nylock nuts should be used instead. Screwdriver and appropriate spanner can now be used to tighten the Extender.
Once fitted ,very pleased with the Extender


Glenn Hood - Friday 12 June, 2015

My base vehicle is a 2008 FIAT Ducato 3.0 Tdi. I had a wee bit of a fight to get the extender on & over the hand brake grip. I had to sort out different machine screws (longer ones still) and nuts to suit as the ones provided were totally in adequate. Once fitted it works fine far, far better than the original set up. Obviously the whole thing is exacerbated with Captains seats. 'TIP' - check the security of the grip to the hand brake lever prior to fitment of the extender. In my case I had to re-affix the said grip using gel super glue. The subsequent clamping effect of attaching the extender then assists in the process. Works well, though a tad expensive for a chunk of plastic. Is there a Dragon behind this product requiring their percentage?


Irene Godfrey - Tuesday 17 March, 2015

This is just what I need to help me with the hand brake on my T5. Well made and nice looking, it's made such a difference to my confidence in the van. Can't recommend it highly enough. Outdoor Bits did their bit too with the speedy delivery. Thanx.


Patrick McAloon - Saturday 24 January, 2015

Fitting this product was quick and easy. Now operating the handbrake is quick and easy too. I'd definitely recommend this.


iain williams - Tuesday 23 December, 2014

What a great bit of kit! I can see why they are never for sale 2nd hand, why would any body want to sell such a good bit of kit.


PETER ARCHER - Sunday 16 November, 2014

This is a clever little device which makes operating the handbrake very much easier. It can be fitted with minimum effort in a very short time and all indications are that it is good value for the money. I heartily recommend it.
