Blink and You’d Miss Them! Installation Highlight: Sure Grip Featherlite Push/Rock with Brake Lock and A Spinner Knob

Our very own Julie Henry purchased a new 2023 Hyundai Tucson and got hand controls installed here at DRCE. Julie’s controls are a Sure Grip Featherlite right side push/rock with brake lock and a spinner knob.


Often, new clients worry that installing auto adaptive equipment into a vehicle will prevent traditional drivers from operating the vehicle and for that reason they hesitate to start the process of gaining independence through driving with auto adaptive equipment. However, most equipment doesn’t prevent traditional driving at all. Furthermore, as is the case with Julie’s vehicle and countless other DRCE installations, the controls don’t obscure OEM gas, brake and steering functions.

Blink and you’d miss them!
Julie’s controls fit in her vehicle so seamlessly that, upon first glance, you hardly notice them

New clients also worry that auto adaptive equipment will alter the look of their vehicles. Julie’s installation is a perfect example of how seamlessly hand controls can fit in a vehicle with the right fit and team to install them.









Clients who have driven with auto adaptive equipment for a while, like Julie, often worry that their new vehicles won’t be compatible with the same controls that they are more comfortable with and enjoy using. However, even when some manufacturers don’t have an installation kit that’s compatible with a vehicle, DRCE is able to create custom fabrications that allow clients to keep using the equipment they love.



This installation was done with Julie’s specific needs in mind. In Julie’s case, she’s been driving with the Sure Grip Featherlite Push/Rock hand control, the one that she states she “immediately fell in love with,” since she first began driving in 2017. However, Sure Grip didn’t have brackets that were compatible for installing Julie’s favored control into her new 2023 Hyundai Tucson. DRCE’s solution to this was to fabricate custom brackets, ensuring that Julie got to keep the controls that best fit her needs.









All DRCE clients have unique wants and needs for their own equipment, and DRCE’s installation process reflects that. Whether you’re starting the process of getting equipment for the very first time, or if you’re already an equipment driver looking to get a new vehicle, contact us today to see how DRCE can help.

    Two installationsl, one happy, grateful and satisfied customer! Richard Tulley, Charles, on site manager and every fabricater was involved with my second installation. I required a different and easy to manipulate remote control and the only way to achieve this was to purchase a new Autochair Smart Lift.
    I’m even more satisfied with the second mobility lift installation because I am able to physically maneuver the lift to put in and take out my mobility scooter! DRCE is a class act! Everyone is extremely professional, they deliver as promised and the on-site manager is a man of honor, professionalism and integrity! Since this was my second installation, it did not take quite as long, labor wise, and I received a refund for the un-used labor! I am sending everyone who’s in the market for mobility installations to DRCE in Chantilly, Virginia. Richard Tulley is the Service Advisor and his manager, the.on-site manager who is responsible for the financial portion are a winning team. Charles one of the lead fabricators in addition to the other fabricators has my 2020 Nissan Armada Platinum Reserve 4WD looking like Nissan installed the lift in Japanese factory! First rate job! I highly recommend DRCE. Chantilly, Virginia. You will not be disappointed!
