Did you know that Orscheln hand brake levers are founded on the principle of variable mechanical advantage? After Orscheln Products created the first “overcenter” parking brake, we expanded and improved on that brake many times over. Each of Orscheln Products’ hand brake levers are designed to work based on variable hand effort, which provides infinite mechanical advantage. Orscheln hand levers also provide a screw-type adjustment feature which allows the operator to make system adjustments to suit the operator’s needs. Keep in mind that although Orscheln Products offers a large variety of standard levers, we can also work with our customers to provide quality custom designs. When we design a custom lever, we work with the customer to determine the best design while always keeping safety, required lever output, mounting location, operator access, and handle effort at the forefront of the design.
