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

also used extensively in drag race cars on the fronts while in the burn box, and some on the line.

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.

If I go with it I'd most likely mount it above where the brake release is now (keep in mind mine is the 650 XT), it's a solid spot and out of the way enough I think, plus it would be a short jog to the master cylinder.

I'm not really sure how you tie it in, that is one reason I haven't made the jump yet. I know you tie into the brake line but not sure if you split the line and tap this in or what.

You can even get them electronically activated:
Hurst Roll Control Kit - JEGS

Apparently you just unhook a line from the mastercylinder and hook up the proper line adapter. Then run your switch wiring in this case..

Ya Jegs or summit sell them 12 volt activated and you do splice into a brake line either front or rear. Front you can smoke off the rear tires forever, Lol. wire it to a switch and you are good to go.

your can tie into your brake lines so you can have 2 or 4 wheel braking. I think i will put it in so i have 4 wheel lock up, I had a electric one on a truck i drove for work I'm going for the manual version that way i know i can release it when i want to no electrical things to mess up when your 4 miles to the trailer
