Voted "Best on Test" by Practical Boat Owner, August 2015

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
o Compact, solid metal construction withstands the abuse of hard sailing
o Major components made of solid aluminium alloy, hard-coat anodised and sealed
o Internal parts made of passivated stainless steel
o Thoroughly rounded edges for comfort and safety
o Does not use or interfere with the mounting points of a tiller pilot and remains in place when a tiller pilot is used
o Unique toggling rope clutch system balanced to maximise holding power with minimal user effort. No need for adjustment screw-knob
o Rope clutch mechanism calibrated to be overpowered in emergencies and to relieve excessive rudder stress in heavy conditions
o Size: Width 28mm, Depth 25mm, Body Length 79mm, Lever Length 57mm
o Suitable for trailer sailors, day sailors and small cruisers up to approx 27ft / 8.25m
o There is also a TillerClutchX model with more holding power for heavier keel boats with stout steering hardware, that exceed tiller loads of up to 35lb (16kg) or more (see Code: 861000).

Standard TillerClutch Kit Includes:
o TillerClutch, 3.65m control line, mounting screws, instructions & limited lifetime warranty

Tiller Clutch X Review by Tim

Having used my Tiller Clutch X many times now on my Long Keel Yarmouth 22, and can say it's like having an extra crew man onboard, and I don't normally bother rigging my autohelm anymore.
Very pleased with the product and very easy to fit - Two screws!
You can see it in use in this 14min video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvhEQH6qSqQ
