KSR pedal control systems are designed, engineered and built to give drivers the benefits of vehicle control, as well as luxury standards. For more than 50 years KSR has provided design, engineering, manufacturing and production support across a broad range of vehicle platforms, including hybrids and electric vehicles..
KSR manufactures more than 14 million fixed brake and clutch pedal modules a year. We’ve been pioneering the development, design and manufacture of brake/clutch modules as far back as 1971 when we introduced a breakthrough system in North America for the Mercury Comet and Ford Maverick. Twenty years later, we were the first to introduce a mass production plastic brake/accelerator pedal bracket for the Ford Windstar.
KSR produces a broad range of pedals for fixed pedal modules, including tubular, u-channel or bar stock. We provide variable ratios and safety systems, such as retractor or de-coupler.
Our brackets range from simple to complex – whatever the customer needs. Sometimes a single bracket houses all three pedals. Sometimes each pedal requires its own bracket. KSR designs, makes and delivers whatever is the best value solution for our customers.
A retractor system functions due to the differential deformation between dash and cowl during a crash. Deformation engages a cam which retracts the pedal to a safer position.
A de-coupler system completely disconnects the brake pedal from the brake system allowing the pedal to move to the bulkhead during a crash.
During a crash the pedal box is displaced linearly under the cross-car beam. This action de-latches the pedal and allows it to swing to a required “safe” position.
Since 1948, KSR has been an industry leader in designing, engineering and manufacturing of fixed pedal modules, electronic throttle controls and automotive sensors. With seven worldwide locations on three continents, KSR’s global footprint includes manufacturing facilities in North America, mainland Europe and Asia. Sales, R&D and engineering offices are in Canada, US, German, UK and China.
