press the brakes, turn the valve, locks the brakes on that circuit. Plum it up under the dash.
Me too. Mine is a plumbing ball valve. The one on the rear has been on for 10 years or more. It is pretty easy to cut the line under the tub and run it in.
The one in front I did a few years ago. Same thing but you have to run it straight from the master and back to the proportioning valve.
I have never had a problem with it bleeding off.
Really the only problem I have had is forgetting when they are on. It would be nice to have a light to tell you when they are on. More work then I really want to do though.

Mico is more like a hydraulic parking brake. We have them on pretty much everything with a manual transmission and non airbrake. Flip the switch and apply the pedal, check valve holds the brake on (even with a power failure) and they have a pressure switch you are supposed to hook to the horn so if the brake bleeds (with power applied) off your horn honks as your truck gets ready to roll away.

A regular line lock will release if the power is cut, and isn't supposed to be used for parking. Mico is 10x the money of a line lock

I have a line going to my front brake and a line going to my back brakes. How can you run one line for all 4 wheels? If I had to run just one line what would be better front where all the weight is back where the traction is?
Thanks people!
If you want to lock all 4 wheels, you would need two of those. Install them between the master cylinder and the combo valve, then wire them to the same switch.

If you only want to buy one. I would lock the rear wheels. that's where the E-Brake is anyway.

Just my $.02 worth. And probably isn't worth that much.

zuzu I have run an electric line lock for years as well. Never had any problems with bleed down. I always forget to turn it off after the Jeep sits for a while and then think its broken because it won't move.

Underkill I've been running an electric line lock for years. Never experienced a bleed down.... have had it set for long periods of time while rig was on an incline.

Don't remember the brand, bought it @ Summit Racing

DriverJC Line Locks are great if you aren't comfortable running the hydraulic brake lines into the cab. However, from what I've read, they do tend to bleed down rather quickly.

My build will be using Turning brakes and a ball valve for e-brakes.

Line lock

I have a 1979 CJ-7. How much BS is it to connect it? I was thinking about this one. https://www.amazon.com/Evilenergy-Br...r+brakes&psc=1
