Mobility Friendly Key and Gear Shift Extensions

Have you ever had trouble getting a grip on your vehicle key or key fob? There are a variety of types of vehicle key, key fob, and gear shift extensions available to assist in starting your vehicle. Below you will find some useful information on extensions to help you decide if a vehicle key, key fob, or gear shift extension would be a good solution for your mobility needs. 
Why would I want a key/gear shift extension?
Do you have trouble turning your key once it’s in the ignition or reaching the ignition or the gear shift? A key extension would allow you to change the angle of the key so you can easily complete the turn. This is also very helpful with a lack of grip. The extension will also allow you to easily reach the ignition if reach is a challenge, this also applies to the gear shift extension. 
How do they work?
The extension for a gear shift will attach to your shifter allowing a person to reach the gear shift with greater ease and can be adjusted to make changing gears easier. For the key extensions they hook onto your key and come in segmented sections, so you can change the angle where you can hold onto the key. 
Do extensions work on all vehicle makes? 
Not a problem! There are a variety of key extension adapters, finding a local mobility dealer near you and they’ll help find exactly what you’re looking for.

My professional background stems from non-profit marketing and fundraising for a large children’s cancer hospital. Every day I was able to make connections and relationships for kids and their families going through devastating times. From securing small donations to large corporate support, it was all about providing hope that one day doctors and researchers would find a cure. It was truly an honor to be a part of something so important.

Just this past year, I came to work alongside my family for, a website dedicated to offering the latest information and resources for people needing mobility products. This was a dream come true for me as I have always wanted to combine more time with my family while still helping others. Our family has been in the mobility industry for over 35 years with the goal of enhancing the quality of life for people with mobility issues. This is the spirit behind BLVD and what I am most excited about sharing in my blog.

I love meeting new people and have found that volunteering is the best way to learn more about others and myself. Coffee keeps me going as do walks my pup "Kirby" and most of all being with family and friends. I invite you to check out my blog to learn more about how "together we can move through life better!"
