It also sticks _down_ a little further than the standard pedal, thus
making it easier to put the heel on the gas and the toe on the brake.

I've made my own with a piece of aluminum about 2 1/2" X 1 1/4". Drill
two or three holes through the aluminum into the uncovered gas pedal,
countersink the tops of the holes and use flat headed machine screws and
nuts to fasten it down. Careful that the screws don't stick too far out
beyond the pedal - they may get caught in the carpet (if you use carpet
as floor mats). For the same reason, don't make the pedal too long.
