occasionally need to leave the helm to perform other tasks
onboard. The problem is that often there is no one else
available who can take over the steering. Tiller-Lock
is an inexpensive, patented and ingenious solution to
a rudder locking device with a unique, infinitely variable
friction brake suitable for tiller-controlled boats!
Tiller Lock is the most clever and easy to handle rudder
locking device on the market. Without encroaching on cockpit
space, it's always ready for action. The locking of the
tiller is effected by a short pull upwards. Owing to this
the control line is firmly locked around the friction
brake and the rudder is fixed!
To regain control of the steering, simply lower the tiller!
The control line will then slacken allowing you to steer
as usual without any friction from Tiller-Lock.
It is also possible - and very useful in certain conditions
- to increase the steering tension by raising the tiller
until the desired friction-resistance is pbtained.
Tiller-Lock is very easy to install
and is delivered as a complete kit in an attractive box
