    i don't have any pics because i had sticks a long time ago but i made an L shaped bracket fastened to the toggle switch plate( this was a meyer plow) and i use a worm clamp to fasten it to the gear shift ..it always worked great..easily shift whlie you operate controls, i was too lazy to remove the shifter shaft and tack weld the controls to it

    I just hang on to the Boss hand held joystick in my big ol hands while I shift and throw it on my lap when I am backing up a long way. Grab and repeat all night long!
