Here is an electric one:



Here's a manual one:



On your tax issue, you will not lose any tax credits if you sell your cart. You only need to buy it, take delivery and after that you can sell it without recourse.
That is a PERFECT brake solution

On the tax thing..... I remember reading about a certain time limit that you had keep it registered? IDK I'm not a tax credit GC buyer or seller

As far as the hand brake, I have own mine for going on 2 years and at first it was cumbersome but I'm use to it now and I play golf two times a week. Good luck with your idea.

Wanting to bump this thread up and see if there has been any advancement in hand brake conversion technology... I hate having to use the hand brake! I read about the "line lock" but it says these are only to be used for about 20 seconds at a time- does anyone have experience with a better solution? For everyone's awareness, I am the one who put a lift kit on my 2010 Emerge, and had to fabricate a longer parking brake cable- it works, but I feel like I have to increase the amount of pressure on the handle when I set it lately. Thanks in advance!

Question Re: Handbrake sucks for golf. Need help converting to "Hill Brake".

Why not make a foot brake pedal for it? The newer e brake pedals are small and could be mounted in the floor maybe. I've never seen one up close to be 100% but I'm sure it could be done.
