Quick Latch For Farmall M Brakes
Todd Quatier got tired of reaching down to lock the brakes on his Farmall M. He came up with a simple latch that allows him to use his left foot to trigger a lock on the brakes as he steps on them with his right foot.
"I made a couple for my own tractors, and when friends saw them, they wanted them, too," he says. "Then I sold a few on eBay and started making five to ten at a time. Pretty soon I was making 20 to 30 at a time during evenings and weekends."
While Quatier hasn't given up his day job, he is continuing to sell the parking brake latch for Farmall M and Super M's. He's also working on a similar latch for the Farmall H.
Installation of the latches, which he sells for $19.95 (plus $5.95 shipping and handling) is easy. The unit is designed to use existing bolt holes in the transmission cover. Quatier says it takes less than five minutes start to finish.
"Just remove the two bolts and mount the latch," he says. "I use slightly longer bolts, but that may not be necessary. I've never yet had anyone have a problem with installation or operation."
