What is the hand brake system in a car?

You can usually activate the parking brake by pressing the lever on the car and pulling it up. Once done, you can release the button. Modern vehicles also come with a button to apply the parking brake. The button is also located near the gear lever.

Reasons for not applying the handbrake while parked for a long time

If you plan to store your car for a long period, do not apply the handbrake. Using the handbrake for a long time can cause brake pads to stick to the disc or drum, which can cause wear and tear when the car is used for a long time.

Therefore, it is best not to apply the handbrake when you plan to leave your car for a long period of time. Instead, you can use wheel chocks or place a piece of wood or brick in place to prevent it from rolling. Also, you can leave the car in first gear.

When to use Handbrake?

1. When you’re parking the car

You can use the handbrake while the car is parked. This brake prevents the car from rolling forward/back, even if you parked the car on an uphill/downhill. However, for safety reasons, you can also put the gearbox in first gear so that if the handbrake is not engaged, your car will not move.

Handbrake is also called emergency brake. Because if the main brake is not applied then you can use this brake to slow down or stop the vehicle. However, the handbrake is engaged only on the rear brake and the rear wheels may lock up and the car may spin out of control. Therefore, use the handbrake only if the main brake fails.
