    • The WaveFront TillerClutchX is recommended for heavy keel boats 27 feet and up that have higher steering loads and/or sail in moderately heavy conditions
    • The X model doubles the maximum holding force on the tiller
    • Users will notice a slightly harsher clicking action in the X's lever
    • Some smaller, stout-built boats with heavy weather helm can benefit from the TillerClutchX as well, but the X-Model is not meant for lighter day sailors
    • WaveFront's patented TillerClutch lets you quickly "lash the helm" with the simple click of a lever
    • Praised by sailors as “the best mechanical tiller-controller on the market
    • No knobs to turn, friction to fight, plastic to break, or bungee cords to adjust.
    • Holds course while you do quick tasks, (reefing, trimming sails, tacking, anchoring, etc.), handles the steering load, and provides moments of hands-free cruising.
    • Made with marine-grade metals for an elegant, durable design
    • Easy to mount
    • Easy to use
    • Compact, Safe and Durable
    • Built in USA
    • Mounts under the tiller right beneath your steering hand
      • Simply click a lever on or off, like a switch, to securely grip or fully release the tiller control line
      • The lever operates a specialized rope clutch that engages the control line routed aft and out of the way
      • Lever conveniently located beneath the tiller for one-hand control
    • The TillerClutch gives you a firm hand on the tiller, whenever you need it
    • Specialized rope clutch engages a small control line for maximum efficiency and safety
    • Clean on/off lever operation; no knobs to turn, no friction to fight
    • Enables quick and effortless steering corrections
    • Sleek, compact design mounted safely out of the way
    • Precise computer-engineered mechanism
    • Made of hard-anodized aluminum and tempered stainless steel for durability
    • Also helps you hold the helm and take the load when the steering gets tough
    • Easy to operate even in heavy gloves

    TillerClutch Unique Features:

    • Unique toggling rope clutch system precisely balanced to maximize holding power with minimal user effort. No need for adjustment screw-knob
    • Light touch activation when disengaged so the TillerClutch is always ready for use
    • Rope clutch mechanism calibrated to be overpowered in emergencies and to relieve excessive rudder stress in heavy conditions
    • Won't slip under normal working loads
    • Does not use or interfere with the mounting points of a tiller pilot and remains in place when a tiller pilot is used
    • Special grooved base fits round or square tiller handles
    • Simplified mounting requires only two screws centered along tiller shaft
    • Compact and solid metal construction withstands the abuse of hard sailing
    • Major components made of solid aluminum alloy hard-coat anodized and sealed
    • Internal parts made of passivated stainless steel
    • Mechanism designed to prevent jamming from sand, salt or corrosion for trouble-free use
    • Lever pivot rides on advanced synthetic bushings for permanent lubrication and electrical isolation to prevent galvanic corrosion
    • Thoroughly rounded edges for comfort and safety in rough, jostling conditions
