    I bought one of those Airgizmo external control lock thingies (I'm using it at the top of my rudder) and I cannot figure out how to easily tighten it down.
    I was in a hurry when I bought it and declined the nice-gent-at-the-counter's offer for free initial on it (to myself at the time "how hard can it be"), uh-huh one of the Hazardous Attitudes, you got me.
    Any tips?

    Yup I see the problem.
    It's an engineering one.
    I am going to take a file to mine to see if I can fix it.
    Will report back if I do, for follow-on people looking for solutions.

    A few strokes here with a coarse file and the strap is much more easily adjusted.
    Will report back if it no longer locks the control surface in place. D943E9B1-938E-456C-9C84-05D6A64AA18D.jpeg
