The most commonly used steering aid, the steering ball is grasped from the front using a partially clenched hand.
Steering aids are commonly used in conjunction with hand controls, allowing the driver to steer using the left hand, while operating the acceleration and braking using the right hand. The quick release steering ball, fixed steering ball and steering peg are the most suitable for use with hand controls, due to their low profile metal clamp.
The quick release option is particularly useful when the vehicle is also driven by a conventional driver as the steering ball has a release button, enabling the handle to be removed from the clamp, which remains fixed to the wheel. The quick release mechanism is operated by pushing the pin at the back of the steering aid and sliding out the handle.
