Smile Rudder lock that works for my RV-9A

It’s been two months since I built my rudder lock and it’s held up under the most extraordinary winds so I thought I would post it.
Here are some photos of the completed unit.

As you can see, I used the best “aviation grade” schedule 40 pvc pipe with a generous dose of flat black paint.
It’s actually a 2 piece design so I can disassemble it and stuff it in the back when I travel.

What makes it work is the down force exhibited by one bungee cord and the rearward force applied by a second bungee cord.
The downward force causes the unit to flex and extend placing pressure on the pedals.
