Looking for a good manual line lock to help out the parking break
What have you guys used?

I have SLP on my Mustang yet its a Mustang. Locks up great, though why keep the lines under pressure for long periods of time?

I have 2 broncos. All new cables and brakes.
they work. But they won’t hold the bronco on a boat ramp with a bass boat behind her.
not sure if they hold on a hill at all
It creeps down

Not sure if line lock would work then as you're saying the brakes aren't locking up in a boat ramp under load when pressing the brake pedal or just when the parking brake is active?

A line lock would work, especially if it were set up to lock all 4 or even just the fronts. Drum brakes don’t have nearly the same holding power in reverse, and they lose a lot when wet, which are both the case on a boat ramp

The brake work as good as 1978 ford bronco brakes did in 1978
The parking brake is the issue
