We can only confirm fitment for the vehicles listed above under vehicle compatibility. If your car is not listed there, then we don't know if it will fit.
Do you make these to suit other cars?
We only sell the parts listed on our website. If it's not listed on our website, then we don't sell it. Sorry.
We do make an S14/S15 specific handbrake extender which can be seen here:https://au.gktech.com/s14-s15-handbrake-extenders
What's the advantage of using the GKTech handbrake extenders?
The handbrake extender gives you more leverage which helps lock up your rear brakes easier, with the same amount of force.
What modifications are required, is this hard to fit?
No modifications are required, as long as you are running an OEM handbrake setup.
Is there anything else needed for installation?
No, you can use your existing hardware, also the extenders will arrive as shown in the product photo.
Can I install this myself? If so how long will installation take?
Yes, they are super easy to install and should take around 20 minutes.
What if I'm running R32 or R33 brakes on my S13/180sx?
This will not work as the R32 and R33's run a drum brake and it's a completely different setup.
What if I'm running S14/S15 brakes on my S13/180sx?
Then you'll need to buy the S14/S15 handbrake extender seen here:https://au.gktech.com/s14-s15-handbrake-extenders

Rear locks up every time! Factory E brake handle being used. 100% satisfaction!
E brake works better than it ever has. This plus new cables locks up 18x10s
My e brake didn’t lock up, just applied enough pressure to park the car but that’s about it. I installed these e-brake extenders as well as Gktech’s replacement e-brake cables and project mu rear brake pads at the same time. Install of these was a little tricky for me but if you have any experience working on cars then you’re probably savvy enough to figure it out. Afterwards, I took the car for a short drive to Mexico or Brazil or whatever you guys want to call it and went ABSOLUTELY DUMB. My rear wheels were locking up like Alcatraz I was hitting turns I didn’t even know I could hit I’m telling you guys I was going STUPID. I linked 2 turns and after I had to pull over to process what happened. I was screaming TAKAMI FUJIWARA AINT GOT SH*T ON ME. EAT A D*CK CHRIS FORSBERG YOU CAN KICK ROCKS TOO IM THE REAL DRIFT KING. But yeah anyways I can’t vouch for the effectiveness of the brake extenders alone but I feel like if you guys are trying to revive your E-brakes, you want to get these along with other supporting parts like replacement cables and brake pads.
Wasn’t too hard to install and works like a charm!
