Description
Force 4 TillerClutch

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.

Features:

  • Special grooved base fits round or square tiller handles
  • Simple mounting - requires only two screws centred along tiller shaft
  • Compact, solid metal construction withstands the abuse of hard sailing
  • Major components made of solid aluminium alloy, hard-coat anodised and sealed
  • Internal parts made of passivated stainless steel
  • Thoroughly rounded edges for comfort and safety
  • Does not use or interfere with the mounting points of a tiller pilot and remains in place when a tiller pilot is used
  • Unique toggling rope clutch system balanced to maximise holding power with minimal user effort. No need for adjustment screw-knob
  • Rope clutch mechanism calibrated to be overpowered in emergencies and to relieve excessive rudder stress in heavy conditions
  • Size: Width 28mm, Depth 25mm, Body Length 79mm, Lever Length 57mm
  • Suitable for trailer sailors, day sailors and small cruisers up to approx 27ft / 8.25m

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:

  • TillerClutch
  • 3.65m control line
  • Mounting screws
  • Instructions & limited lifetime warranty

What is the difference between the TillerClutch and the TillerClutch (Keelboat Model) ? David McDonald

The difference is that the Keelboat version is slightly bigger and is intended just for Keelboats.

- Tiller Clutch X

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 Tim on Wednesday, 30th August 2017
