The only problem using a Line Lock as an emergency brake is that it isn't designed for that purpose. The line lock is a selonoid based system that works by locking the pressure to the front brakes. It may or may not hold pressure over an extended period of time and if it doesn't and you're parked on a hill... oh well.... Your emergency brakes on the other hand are mechanical in nature and the chances of failure under normal conditions are almost zero. Also you probably wouldn't want your insurance company to find out you're don't have an approved emergency brake system either. <img src="graemlins/sweat.gif" border="0" alt="[sweat]" />
