When I redo the interior on my 55 I'll need to move my line lock button
Presently I have it on the floor near the dimmer
I don't want a button or switch mounted on the dash and I'm not a fan of a switch on a coiled wire laying around
It looks like my only option is a T Handle with the button on the end onless someone knows of another option
Not interested in a ball knob with the button
The only T Handles with line lock buttons that I can find have the B&M and Hurst logos as part of the T Handle with the background in red or black
I'd be ok with chrome B&M with the red if there is no other choice
Any others available

My buddy had a Nova with the horn buttons on the steering wheel spokes and wired his line-loc to be activated by the horn button. My guess is that his horn no longer worked, but it was a car used almost exclusively for drag racing with occasional street use. As far as I know he never accidentally hit the button while driving. He probably isn’t much of a horn user.

Friends don’t let friends drive Fords.

You could use a button on the end of the turn signal switch, they are available in the street rod market. Or, get an older GM cruise stalk, and convert one of those buttons to operate the Line Loc.
