“The best way to learn is to fail!” I don’t know who said that, but I believe it: While not a complete failure, I see that I did fail to anticipate variations in length of the extender that might be needed by different operators…
I designed the button extender for my Ultra 2 yoke. Many people asked if I would make one for them, and I finally embarked on this adventure. As many have doubtless learned before me, manufacturing a product is very different from making a prototype – which is what I have done for countless projects in the past. I did not think through how long the button extender should be for other yokes and other folks!
One of my initial customers sent a video showing how much shorter the button should be for his yoke, and for two different reasons: first, his M2 yoke is a little shorter than my U2 yoke, and second, he prefers to hold onto the yoke much higher than I do. For this reason, it was clear I needed to make shorter versions, in addition to the first long version.
I now have parts to assemble extensions of 1.5″, 2.0″, 2.5″, and 3.0″ lengths.
Measure how long you would like yours to be: while holding the yoke, put your thumb where you would like the button to be to comfortably press it without any disturbance to your grip and therefore your sled. Now measure the distance from the body of the Volt (not from the existing button itself which is recessed slightly) to your thumb.
