AbstractAn extension handle for a seat adjustment lever enables physically handicapped persons to more easily adjust their car seat. The extension handle includes an extension bar having a lower end portion and an upper end portion terminating in a handle grip. A connecting block is secured to the lower end portion of the extension bar and is adapted to be mounted on the seat adjustment lever. The extension bar is bent so that it extends upwardly towards the top of the top of the seat where it can more easily reached by physically handicapped persons. The extension bar also provides additional leverage which makes the seat adjustment lever more easily to operate.
