My two boys each have their own H Farmall. Now all of has the same problem. My belly gets in the way when I am trying to set the brakes, and their arms are not long enough yet to reach.

So I came up with a little invention to set the brakes by using my heel. After showing it to my neighbor he asked to buy a few for his tractors. Well after that I made a few more and put them on ebay and I have had some good reviews.

If you are interested in one for your tractor or would like to be a vendor at tractor shows, I would love to hear from you.

There is nothing else like it. It simply clamps on between the brake pedals and does not require changing anything else. $12.00 with shipping.

Somebody used to make a similar device except the rod ran up near the steering post. There was a rocker that pushed down on the front of the lock when you pulled up on the ring of the rod with your finger. You didn't have to bend over.

Looks pretty slick. The M is even harder to reach than an H. I had a flipper deal on an M once that went across to the other side where you tripped it with your toe. Handy as a shirt pocket.

One person drilled a hole in the rear of the brake lock and bolted a small chain to brake lock. By pulling the chain it would pull up the brake lock.

Farmall 400 had a brake lock mechanism consisting of a rod mounted on the side of the steering ped and when pulled up it would pushed down on the front of brake lock.

Wish I could post a picture but scanner is not working. I just happen to have a 1965 TSC blue book laying on my desk and it has both types listed in it. The foot control was priced at $1.29 and was part no 2-5910 and the hand control was part no 2-5911 and priced at $2.05. It also has the disk brake conversion kit for the H $49.95 & M $59.95 and the 9 speed transmission kit H, HV, W4, Sh @ $167.50 and M, MD, MDV, SM & SMD @ $180.00. The high speed package was $52.95 & $59.95. The live PTO kit was $184.50 to $189.90 and the hydrolic pump uncoupler was $28.50

Just weld a short bolt to the brake lock near the front. Then all you have to do is push it down with your heel to lock it.
