I'm not sure what you're asking for. The Brake Buddy's 'handle' adjusts up or down to align with the seat front for the BB to brace against. Is there something special about your car's seat that it doesn't fit?

If your seat does not go far enough forward make a spacer out of wood or whatever that will withstand some compression. Adjust the handle up or down to something solid on the seat/spacer. Take all the vacuum out of the car's brake system. Push the set button several times to insure the brake buddy pushes the pedal.

our jeep wrangler seat has a thin frontal area, but I did just what was suggested, adjusted the handle so that it hits right in the middle of seat and it works fine...

Download your instruction manual here so you can print out a copy and/or condense it onto one page like I did...
