Tip for checking brake lights single handed

Solved the problem for checking brake lights singlehanded. Handy when working on them or hooking up trailers.

Brace butt of club lock against front seat runner. Put fork over brake pedal and depress, then lock club lock.

Works OK in some cases, just like shop windows, but not much good in bright sunlight in the middle of the boat trailer park when the lights are under the boat and the boat's between me and them. Also no good when you're tracing faults.
