Rear Brake Peddles



On my Experimental Cubby, I cut small wood block brake peddle extensions attached with stainless steel clamps. Without the "extensions" I can't get my big feet up high enough, at the correct angle, to easily use the brakes. The blocks are held in place with stainless steel clamps. I've experimented with cutting different angled blocks as they have to extend enough to work with heals but not so large that they protrude and allow the brakes to be depressed when the rudders are used during takeoff or landing.

Does anyone have a different solution. I've tried to think of something which would slip over the brake peddles, IE like bike handlebar grips, which would do the same thing and look more professional than my soon to be painted wood blocks.
