    First video I've made. Obviously not for everyone, but for those interested...

    I mounted mine in the boot of my AK. It works well enough for IVA and IMHO is certainly better than the traditional "floppy".

    Nice video. Hope to see you producing more. The electronic handbrake seems to be a hot topic..I can see some value in producing a kit of parts for common manufacture like Ak , Dax , GD..As you stated some might still like the look and feel of a mechanical set up. Some inboard systems are not very effective and need a lot of adjusting to balance them.

    Had the bracket and new handbrake lever build by a local engineering firm. Wired it up last weekend and works like a dream!

    Looks good thanks for sharing, I bet it would be pig to install on a fully built AK unless I remove the fuel tank for access.
    Even then it would be a tight fit I'm sure.
    Thanks Mike H

    Good job, and loved the little outtake at the end! We've all done it
