Pros:
I have a 4-wheel steering John Deere mower and this knob makes close cutting around trees & shrubs a snap. I highly recommend it for us older folks with upper arm strength problems.
Cons:
I had to 'experiment' with using the adapters to figure out which one worked best with my steering wheel diameter, but once I settled on an adapter, it went fairly easily to make the final installation.

This product used to be called a 'make out knob' for automobiles 'back in the day' and I didn't know it still existed, but although I wouldn't recommend it for a car...it works great on my mower...also brought back some good memories from the 50's!

Just like with my first car back in the 50s this spinner sure made one hand driving easier.
They sure make it easier to steer your mower while using the other hand to operate lugs.

Pros:
The Easy Rider Knob (aka. "Suicide Knob", "Brody Knob", "Necker Knob" is well constructed, rugged and has a good ergonomic feel. Installation is relative straight forward. However the installer would greatly benefit by using a "T" type Hex driver rather than the supplied hex wrench. The supplied tool requires removal and reinsertion on each ¾ revolution for tightening.
Cons:
The one BIG problem is that installation is permanent and if you don't get it right, the only way to remove the thing is to use a pair of bolt cutters on the clamp (metal strap). Loosening the hex bolt does not, in itself remove the knob as the clamp "locks" when tightened. Removal is therefore extremely difficult and will most certainly damage the steering wheel.

Buy it if you're sure of getting the installation right the first time and you are sure that you will never have a need to remove it in the future. Once installed (either correctly or not) it is on the steering wheel forever. Make sure that you select the correct spacer (supplied) on the first try otherwise the knob will lock, be too loose fitting and cannot be removed to insert a larger spacer.
If it is installed correctly, you have solace that the knob will outlast the tractor.
The product is not marketed for automotive installation, but it will fit on a car's steering wheel. Because of the previous comments, make very sure about local laws before doing this.
