line lock works by steping on the brake turning the lever valve and locks the hydralic brake pressure on, to relese the brakes just throw the valve open. down side of this is if you ever have a brake line leak you lose your parking brake too. there used on some heavey equipment ie loaders forklifts older cement trucks they were very popular previous to air brakes

Mine never really worked good and I gave up on it for awhile. I figured out how to reclock the arm on the back of the caliper and works good now.

Where are you thinking of mounting that? I assume a brake line has to be run to and from?
