Sailing alone or short-handed?
Use the patented TillerClutch to "lash the helm" with the simple click of a lever. It's conveniently mounted under the tiller with the lever right in your steering hand.
Click it on or off for instant steering adjustments. The TillerClutch is a specialised rope clutch, not a simple friction brake. There are no knobs to turn, friction to fight, plastic to break, ropes to tie, or bungee cords to adjust.
The TillerClutch gives you a firm hand on the tiller, whenever you need it.
o Special grooved base fits round or square tiller handles
o Simple mounting - requires only two screws centred along tiller shaft
