Need help sailing singlehanded???

Yesterday, for the first time I successfully sailed singlehandedly. Though things were stressful at times, I had a blast and things went well. Does anyone have any tricks for locking the tiller temporarily so as to go forward to raise sails, get an drink, etc? Not interested in an autopilot yet. I have a tiller extension which I was able to wedge into the bimini frame to escape the cockpit, but it seems there should be a better way. Is there an item (other than autopilot) made specifically for this purpose? Thanks.....Gary
