Any guidance what size is needed? I have a 18ft (L) by 8.5 ft (w) by 2200 lb catboat.Rich A.
Measure the distance from the placement on the tiller to a cleat to secure the control line for each end and go with the closest long enough control line.
I love this little gizmo. Hope it holds up to a lot of use.

Best convenience item I've purchased
Installed my new Tiller Clutch about a month ago and it's now my new best friend. At first I balked at the price since it was basically double the cost of the Tiller Tamer but as soon as I pulled it out of the box I could see why. The shell is made from ~1/8" extruded aluminum box section. The trigger is solid aluminum and clicks effortlessly in and out of clutch mode and because engaging the clutch is so easy it's simple to make small adjustments and get your rudder trim just right. If my next boat doesn't have one it'll be the first purchase. You'll need a couple places to mount the line ends. I used a small 1/4" clam cleat on one side for easy line tensioning or fast removal.
Well-Made and great delivery
This tiller clutch is very well made and easy to install. Very easy to flick into locked or un-locked position.I use it very frequently on my dinghy sail boat.
This product is easy to install and use. It is compact and fits nicely under the forward end of the tiller. The line frayed quickly. There are two recommended anchoring recommendations for the line. On the stern and on the gunwales. I tried the stern first. The line has to make a tight bend through the clutch, hence the fraying. The gunwale attachment seems to me to be the best option for both use and performance. I sail singlehanded and use this clutch continuously. It does what it is advertised to do.
