These are our simplest hand controls to install. You don’t need any tools, just some strong, two-sided tape.

Features and benefits
You won’t have to modify the T300/TX base. This ensures that you won’t void the warranty for this expensive component. All modifications are done to the wheel itself.
No loss of functionality or system compatibility
All the standard buttons on the Thrustmaster wheel and base continue to work. These hand controls emulate Thrustmaster pedals, so the Xbox compatibility of the TX and the PlayStation compatibility of the T300 remain intact.
We use Hall-effect sensors, which never wear out or get dirty.
Adjustable paddle positions
Adjustable full-on and full-off paddle stops allow you to tune the paddle positions to your preference. (There are some limitations since you need to retain a minimum amount of paddle travel for the Thrustmaster controller to recognize the input.) Slots also allow for inward and outward adjustability.
Precise, two-stage braking
We use a simple adjustable Polyurethane rubber allowing you to dial in that sweet spot. The adjuster simply moves the rubber in or out changing the point at which it contacts the standoff pin. The pin can either be in a soft or hard position. We install the adjuster on the paddle of your choice, but you can switch sides latter latter with minimal effort.

I highly recommend these paddles to anyone who cannot use standard foot pedals and wants to be faster.
I’m paraplegic and have been using the F1 Simability paddles over a week now. The paddles are very solid and ergonomically positioned with the F1 wheel’s gear shift paddles and are near even while gas/brake paddles are being pressed so I don’t have to reach to shift while braking. Downshifting while braking into turns is a breeze. I’ve easily transitioned from automatic to manual transmission shaving off even more time. I assumed the gas paddle was going to be my favorite option but the brake paddle is excellent. The paddle springs have mild resistance allowing me long playtime.
The T300 base and F1 wheel have a fast spin during calibration on PS4 on-sleep and bootup causing the connector cable that connects the paddles to the wheel neck to get wrapped around the wheel base neck. Now I take 2 seconds and simply disconnect the paddle connector cable from the wheel neck when I’m taking break or finished racing. Not a problem.
