Default Mechanical brakes

I'm building my first go kart(actually more like rebuilding) and I've come to the point of installing brakes and brake lines, I've got the cable and the brake but I don't know the most effective way to link the line to the brake, ideas?

Get a picture of your kart posted so we can see what it looks like. For these mechanical brakes I found that a medal ROD works best. It connects directly to the brake pedal and brake. Those cables may not always stay mounted in the same place since they are flexible. You kart HAS to have mounting brackets for the ends to go in and secure the cable. Without the brackets you could loose you brakes at any moment. My opinion a long cable like that is just a terrible idea. Could fail or snap at any moment.
