As the current state of lockdown in the UK begins to ease off, for many of us, it’s been a time when we’ve looked forward to planning our new journeys, taking a well earned holiday, or simply just enjoying the ability to drive in our cars and visiting new places.

Sometimes it can get harder to use a vehicle as you get a little older and positioning yourself into relatively low seats and turning to get out of your vehicle can be a strain.

Driving a car should be a pleasure, and the good news is that there are a wide number of aids now available to make both driving, or simply getting I and out of your car both easier and safer.

Here, we’re going to take a look at some of these aids and how they can help to make your daily life, that little bit easier and hopefully make the experience of driving, or indeed being a passenger, one that you’ll take full enjoyment from.

It’s true to say, that when it comes to our vehicles, which for many of us, are our pride and joy, (next to our homes), there is no shortage of accessories that we can spend money on to enhance the experience, or simply to add to the aesthetics.

After all, when not in lockdown, most of us will use our cars at least once a day, sometimes not as often, but because we do spend a considerable amount of time in our vehicles, it make sense for so many of us to invest in the best for our driving pleasure.


Manufacturers have not been slow to come forward with a huge plethora of said accessories and aids and you only have to visit your local car parts shop to see this in action.

But when it comes to aids that can make your life easier and safer, as well as being more comfortable, there are fewer aids that are readily available on the high street.

One example of such a car aid is the car support handle, this innovative and compact device has been readily adopted for use by thousands of people as it give that little bit of additional balance and support when entering or leaving the seating position in the car.

Very simple and quick to fit, when in place the car support handle is an extremely simple yet strong and reliable mobility aid that has been specially designed to aid users when rising from a vehicle.

the Car Support Handle fits easily into the door bracket on the car’s door frame, where it will then remain for as long as it is needed as an excellent supporting handle that protrudes at an ideal height to assist the user in sitting or standing.


To ensure user comfort it boasts a soft, comfortable, slip-resistant handle. The Car Support Handle can also double up as an emergency tool with built in seat belt cutter and hammer feature to break glass in the case of emergency.


All in all, a great idea and low cost investment for your future driving safety comfort and enjoyment.
