GLA auto handbrake - How to turn it on.

I have a manual GLA180 - When ever I leave the vehicle I have to find the button (Of which I find is in a ridiculous awkward place) and push it to set the handbrake..!

Is there some way of the vehicle knowing the vehicle has stopped & automatically applying the handbrake??

I've seen the videos on Youtube for setting the automatic cars handbrake, there seems to be nothing I can find about manual cars.

Any help is welcomed

Does your GLA180 not automatically apply the handbrake when you turn off the ignition?
A red (P) lights up on dash when thats been done.

Hope that's helpful.
All the best.
