I installed a well made Reverse Pedal Extension yesterday. I was constantly catching my boots when I stepped on the Reverse pedal between the Low pedal and brake pedal. The extension was well made with good installation directions. I believe it is the same one that is in Langs catalog, Page 72, item number 3439EX. Try one you will like it.
But Dave, that's the second time in 10 years you've posted without a picture!
What we need now is a well made two-lever conversion.
Here's a pic.
I also have those in stock email@example.com
I tried the extension out today on my daily trip to town. It held and worked real good. I had to use it to back out of my shop and and again when I backed out of Grand Pa's Café. My boots did not stick either Time. They are made by Tom Stickling 319 Fair Ave. NW, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663 phone number 330-339-9220.
Try it you will like it.
He also has extensions for the two side pedals. A very good product.
I have used one of those for several years. It's one accessory that is well worth using. You'll never get your foot caught between the pedals again and you don't have to turn your ankle sideways either!
Jay is the one in your pic an original or a reproduction? Just wondering if the originals were aluminum like the repos are.
Been awful tempted to get one to make things a little easier for my size 13 work boots. I have to put on my Nike's so things are a little easier working the pedals!
I bought one of these a month ago from Tom and it works great! I painted mine black to match the other pedals and was able to stretch my rubber pedal pad onto it as well.
I've got one too and like it. The extension and realizing I didn't need much throttle to back up has made reverse a less dreadful experience!!
Be careful not to over tighten the set screw.
The one on my '25 Light Express came loose after 3 years of use and when I tightened it back up (too much) one of the ears broke off. I had to JB weld it back together and is good as new. A little drop of loctite may help from the screw backing out since the rate of expansion / contraction between the aluminum extension and the steel screw are not the same.
I put a self locking nut on the set screw. I doubt that the set screw will ever come loose but if it does I will tighten it again. I was out of the all metal self locking nuts so I had to use one of the nylar self locking nuts which I trust but not as much as the all metal self locking nuts.
John, The one in the photo I posted is a repop. I have never seen an original, but if I were to take a guess I'd say they were not aluminum.
