According to their website, a gust lock is currently available for the RV-14. My buddy has one in his 14A and it works well. BTW-the original message is over 3 years old . . .

Why does this gust lock not work with the Standard Vans stick, I thought the Toston stick was only cut down shorter. Did Toston change the bend with their stick?

Default Excellent gust lock

Rather than having the gust lock internal I love mine so far.

Seem to perform very well. Any downside ?
