More Convenient Compression-Brake Control Invented for Truckers - Designed by InventHelp Client (FED-1657)

Share Article

Pittsburgh-based InventHelp is working to submit this idea, the MASTER SHIFT & SPEED CONTROL to companies for review.

"Every truck I drive in my profession seems to have the compression brake control in a different location," said an inventor and truck driver from Dupont, Wash. "Since the purpose of a compression brake is to downshift and slow down the truck without excessive use of the foot brake, I decided that it was important to develop a standardization of the location of a compression-brake control."

The result of his idea is the MASTER SHIFT & SPEED CONTROL, which enables a user to access a truck’s compression-brake control more easily and ergonomically. It eliminates confusion as to where the control is located from truck to truck so as to ensure prompt and effective use of the brake when needed.. As a result, it prevents excessive use of the foot brake, which reduces wear and tear, and it promotes convenience, safety and peace of mind.

The MASTER SHIFT & SPEED CONTROL serves as an alternative to conventional compression brakes.

The original design was submitted to the Seattle office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
