It’s called ‘The Extra Foot’ and as you can see from the very top picture it’s a way of checking your brake lights are working when you’re on your own in the yard—and with an artic it’s not always easy to find a convenient wall to back-up against! And the longer the truck the harder to see the reflected light too…you can also use it to help locate any air-leaks.  better than a large rock or dodgy piece of dowel…

As you can see it’s pretty easy to use, the cureved bit at the top holds onto the steering wheel the bottom foot goes on the brake pedal pad and Bob’s your Father’s brother! (As they say down our way..)

It stows away quite easily and there are versions for vans as well as trucks. Prices for ‘The Extra Foot’ start at £9.99 and there are special offers on them right now too.
