Brake buddy problem

Since I purchased a new auto, I have had trouble with the brake pedal clamp of my Brake Buddy slipping off the brake pedal. The brake pedal arm behind the foot pad angles to the left not straight behind the foot pad as on my previous auto. Has anyone else had this trouble? If so, any solution?

If you have the newer style Brake Buddy, call Tech Support and see if they have one of the old style clamps they could send to you. When I sent them my old original Brake Buddy on their trade in program, they sent me a new unit for $495.00. At that time tech support told me to keep my old brake pedal clamp when I shipped them my old unit. They said that most people preferred it to the new style.

When I got the new unit I thought, why not use the new clamp. My toad has the same problem as yours, the new clamp could slip off, the old style I kept worked perfect. They probably have them laying around due to their ongoing trade in program.
