Swing Invent Holding Pty Ltd SWING PEDALS Console Mounted Applications The SIH Slide Bracket is applied directly to the console. Once it is in place, operators can make multi-directional adjustments to the position of the pedals to achieve a customised, comfortable and ergonomic fit. Floor Mounted Applications - Floor Frame Once the older pedal assembly is removed, the SIH Floor frame is simply applied to the floor of the cabin. This can be performed accurately with minimal planning, thanks to the removable spacer bar, which is removed after installation to minimise clutter in the cabin. Floor Mounted Applications - BE Adaptor Mount A quick and easy retrofit means minimal downtime for BE pedal users. Because the drill holes are positioned to match the original BE floor plate exactly, the unit can be swapped virtually on the fly, and your SIH pedal assembly up and running immediately - no measuring, no drilling, no waiting.
