Had tried one on the throttle once. Didn't like the thing sticking out past the wheel.

When at speed, better to keep your palms and fingers around the wheel for control, both hands too. The T steering can jump on you when hitting bumps in the road.

With the fingers wrapped, its very easy to lift a finger to reach and touch the throttle or spark lever, as they lay under the rim, that seems best for me.

I have them on two of my cars,and I like them. If your quadrant is badly worn,their weight might affect how well they work.

Being a fairly new T driver myself, best money I spent for my Fordor, I don't have to reach around so much, and they just fit between two fingers, while still holding onto the wheel.
