Old thread revive, I'm going to have to fix this properly, tightening the resistance screw inside the big cover (it is not under the rubber cap FYI, need to take the whole square cover off) does very little to help this. Clyde outboards have confirmed no issues with cables/setup they can see so DIY is required. (Myself and last tango have looked at this previously too)

I am thinking of making a 3mm carbon plate exoskeleton handle. I'll whack something into CAD and see how it works.....Can anyone see a drawback with doing this before I spend a couple of hours with CAD?

The problem (i think) is the handle is quite heavy for near vertical mounting and with normal waves it backs off. Im not sure these are designed with this type of mounting in mind?

I could probably modify the mount to put more resistance in the cables if need be rather than a carbon handle.
