Fortuner GD 6 Hand Brake setting

I recently took my Fortuner for a service and requested they set the handbrake as it only held after about 10-12 clicks. After the service it now holds after 9 clicks. I requested why and the service manager advised that Toyota spec is 7-9 clicks it should hold.
The old traffic rule was 3 clicks, however i do understand the fortuner has the anti roll safety function.
Please can someone advise what the actual specs are. :S

I thought that the new FT would be better, must say that is one of the things on my car that is real crappy as well.
They set mine so good at the previous service that breaks got so hot on a trip I had to slack them halfway trough Nam.

Oh no ... same issue, I come from VWs and Land Rovers and there it is the 3-5 clicks max ... my 2.4 also takes about 10 clicks ... elbow under the chin stuff ...
On a recent long distance trip I could smell my rear brakes, so not sure if that was due to towing a (light) trailer ... I will certainly watch the rear pads - at the 10 000 km service I was told front pads = 10mm while the rear pads = 8 mm.
Why would the rear pads wear so quickly?
