Thank you, Falcon. I have looked at it and it does seem simple and less expensive. I understand there are issues in the 'slack' in the connecting line. Let me ask you, do you have to drill a hole in the firewall of the car? If not, how does the line get into the brake pedal?

Yes you do need to drill a hole. I had a RV dealer install mine and they had never done one of that make before. The did not have any problems doing it. The fit is so light that I have to brake really hard to have the breaks come on. I have a friend that has the same setup pulling Jeep he put it himself and had the cable set to tight and his brakes over heated. He adjusted it and has used for several years and many miles since. If you have any questions call the 800 # on Readybreak Website they are easy to talk to. They don't make base plates but I ordered a Blue OX base plate through them. But it was direct shipped from Blue OX. If you have a base plate they seem to be able to match it. I went with BO because when I disconnect the front of the Fit is clear. (nothing sticking out)

Thank you for the info. I have a very good parts manager at the Honda dealership who's being very helpful on this. I think I'll let he and his cohorts decide whether this is a viable option. I did read one horror story about someone who burn out their brakes and rotor by having this device installed too tight. Drilling a hole in the firewall is a little scary I will say.
