Orscheln Products has been building, refining, and improving our parking brake systems for over 65 years. Al Orscheln’s creation was the first “overcenter” parking brake, which used a pull-up handle and magnified leverage to help the driver lock the brakes in place. This is very similar to the type of parking brake that is used in many vehicles and cars on the road today. You may even have such a parking brake in your own car. Orscheln Products also manufacturers a foot-powered parking brake which is located under the driver’s dashboard and is operated by your foot. This foot-powered parking brake is available in both a horizontal and a vertical mounting application. At Orscheln Products, we have a large selection of factory-ready parking brake systems, but we are happy to customize any of our products to a certain specification.
