We tried the Kobran one and detested it for the simple fact that it operates in the reverse way to the normal handbrake.

As it is all done by levers, where you would push the button effectively because of the lever, you have to pull it.... we found the motion so odd and non-intuitive that we removed it forthwith.

My only worry about modifying the mounting is whether you are altering an approved mounting and whether your insurance company would try to negate a subsequent claim, irrespective of whether your modification caused any problem.

Insurance companies love a get out of jail free card......

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.
