Brake Levers

Cablecraft park brake levers offer superior performance, quality and service life to both the designer and user. They offer two distinct lever positions – over center and off which are 900 apart. No ratcheting to limit travel or secondary unlocking is required for operation and they are adaptable with side or flange mount configurations. Capable of loads up to 1,000 lbs. and with a travel range of 2-7/16” (maximum), these levers deliver unmatched performance.

Leverstack Push-Pull or Pull-Pull Control

The Leverstack hand control is designed specifically for the agricultural equipment market. One of its major uses is the operating of tractor automatic pick-up hitch systems. The Leverstack offers a high lever to cable movement ratio of 1200, producing a 1.7” cable travel (maximum). Two versions are available, a spring return model which returns the lever to center or a detent model which hold the lever in a predetermined position.
