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
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.
The overall diameter of the tube which slips over the handbrake is approximately 30mm x 36mm.
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

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.
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.
