Part# 13-12727


Piper and Mooney aircraft do not have control locks. That's why there is now a Control Saver control lock to meet the needs of pilots who fly these planes.


Easy to install. Fits my Piper 6XTC. Easy to store when removed.

Be careful when ordering this product. Make sure it is suitable for your aircraft model. Information on Spruces website is not accurate and needs to be properly updated. I told them this when I returned the product I received for the correct product. I had to contact the manufacturer for the correct information.

What a simple yet effective device. Took me only a few minutes to install and it works like a charm.

Better than using seat belt

I purchased this control lock for my PA-28 a few weeks ago. It was extremely easy to install using the two screws that were already present on the left side of the throttle column. Works like a charm in keeping the control surfaces in place when the plane is not in use. And no more stretching the left seatbelt to the max when leaving at the end of the day.

Great item. Ive gotten it for 3 different planes.

This control lock is easy to install and only required about 5-10 minutes to: 1) Remove the gear status indication bulbs, 2) Remove two Phillips head screws on the pilot side throttle quadrant, 3) Align the adjustable control lock linkage to match the quadrant screw holes, 4) Reinstall the screws and bulbs. The nylon straps that slip over the control wheels are adjustable in length and fit perfectly on to the ram horns. This is a well-built and well-designed product that protects the aircraft controls at a reasonable price.

Simple to install, holds controls, reasonably priced, would buy it again if I had more than one aircraft!

Work perfectly. Good quality. Easy installation. Definitely better than strapping a seat belt around the yoke! (1977 Piper Turbo Arrow III)

Comes with everything you need to secure your flight controls without running a seatbelt through them. Highly recommend.
