I'm a bit curious by how you're getting your kill cord above your steering wheel while in use. Where is the kill attached to the driver and where is the throttle located?

And how did you mount the knob on the wheel, position wise?

Fair point chaps. When I was having this issue I was putting the kill cord on my wrist - bought a jobe wrist strap. I removed the "knob" and then a few days later also dropped the wrist strap, although I did find clipping the kill cord clip on to the LJ crotch strap a bit tricky. Fairly obvious solution though, perhaps I should try it again.... thanks all - the obvious answers are always the best!

Fit a large lightweight plastic or alloy carabiner to the clip end of the cord and use that to clip onto the crotch strap. It will drop down and hang just in front of yer, well, you-know-what. And that's always easy to find

Sorry, don't remember. It's SS, with non-sealed nylon ball bearings, I think (not that that's caused any problems.)

jky

On looking at the selections from Edson, it was a pro series all SS model.

Only question is whether or not it will stand up to salt air and water. Not a condition you see too much of in a car, but a boat is a different matter. Other than that, as long as you can secure it to your wheel (boats have a wider range of rim thicknesses than most cars) you should be good to go.
